Back to life...

Well, it's been a nice three month vacation, but now it's time to return to my real life. I just got back to Abilene and already spent 500 dollars on books! Holy crap- that's way too much money to be spending on books. On Monday I'll be starting my semester off with three hours of Systematic Theology. Honestly, I don't even know what that is, so I guess I'll be learning a lot in that class.

I found out this week that I have been seriously close to death and I didn't even know it. I had a sleep study done and found out that I have some serious sleep apnea. Apparently I would quit breathing 44 times an hour. Once I even quit breathing for 38 seconds!! Again, holy crap- that's way to long to deprive your brain of oxygen. I can only hold my breathe for about 10 seconds. I must have super hero breath holding powers when I'm asleep. So, this morning I was fitted for a nifty darth vader mask to help keep my airway open while I sleep. No dying for me.

I'm really enjoying the CRV. It's so nice. I've gotten the picnic table out four times, but I haven't actually used it yet, I just like to look at it. The CRV fulfills a deep dark secret desire I have. I've never really told anyone this, but I LOVE driving mini-vans. I know, I know, only uncool soccer moms love to drive mini-vans, but I just love the way they drive and I like to imagine myself as a wonderful mother carting my kids around. Anyways, the CRV drives just like a mini-van, so it makes me think I'm driving a van without actually being an uncool 24 year old single gal.

This summer my apartment became the place where bugs came to die. They're everywhere. I guess it's time to end this post and put the dirt devil to good use ridding my apartment of 4-legged, 6-legged, and maybe a few 8-legged creatures. Have a great night blog world. There's two episodes of Grey's on tonight from 7-9 and they're really good ones, so tonight should be wonderful for all!

So, I'm an uncool soccer mom huh?? I wish you would have told me this secret desire in KC. I would have let you drive us around. :) Elizabeth says Hi, and we've decided to name the baby Caleb (supposing the ultrasound was right about his gender). I love you.

I'm SO glad that you decided that dying by sleep apneia was not the path for you ... That is WONDERFUL news!! (And explains that snoring, eh?!?!) ;) I'm glad you got one of those machines. We make fun of V for being Darth, too.

I want to come take a ride with you in your CRV.

Allison - I LOVE the name Caleb! Why didn't you tell ME this in your comment on my blog???? :)

Okay Sue, seriously, how hard can it be to park the CRV straight, hmm? ;)
