Breaking Up is Hard to Do

So, maybe it's really not considered a break-up when you think about how long we dated, but Brett and I were together so much for five weeks--and now we are no more. With all of the emotional stress I've been under lately, I needed some time to get my emotions in check. I asked him if we could back off a while--just so I could focus on getting better--but I guess he wanted all or nothing. So, he decided to completely break things off. I didn't want that. I just needed some time. But I guess it's better that it happened now and not six months from now.

My emotions are really raw--Three people in my life have died in the last month--two from work. And it's really been hard for me to cope. I am getting better, but I'm just taking one day at a time.

I went back to the gym yesterday--they say exercise gives you endorphines that make you happy--and it really did make me feel a bit better. I had to switch gyms, so this was my first time at the new gym. I am going to continue to go.

This weekend, I plan to spend most of my time with friends--I think that will be good. Friday night, I may go out with some friends from work--and then on Saturday, myself and some friends are planning to go to Freedom Weekend Aloft--it's a big hot air balloon festival here in the upstate.

Please Pray

The last three weeks have been very hard for myself and many close to me. My heart is heavy this morning, and truthfully, I'm not quite sure if I can handle anymore. Last night, one of my co-workers was killed on the job. I've always been told how dangerous this business is--but you don't really think about it until it happens to you or someone you know. Joe Loy was covering a story when a car hit him. Please pray for all of us at Fox Carolina and for Joe's family.

This is just the latest tragedy. My best friend, Niecie's, brother died last week. He was a cancer survivor, and his death at just 14-years-old came as a shock. I spent the latter part of last week in Birmingham with Niecie and her family. They also need prayer.

And one of my co-workers died about three weeks ago after losing his battle with lung cancer. We sort of expected this, but it doesn't make it any easier.

They always say people die in threes. Just never knew there would be three people I knew all together like this.

100th Post

This is my 100th post. Hard to believe! Guess I have a lot to say! Anyway, hope all is well with everyone. Things are good here. Going to Bama for a quick trip this weekend. Really hoping to get to see my sister while I'm there.

This month is really busy for me. Next weekend, I'm going to Mobile. I'm going to be spending Mother's Day weekend with my grandmother. I really can't wait to see her.

Then the following weekend, I will be in Savannah, Georgia. I've never been--and I'm told it's wonderful!

Luckily for me--I'm not driving on any of the trips. So, thankfully, my pocketbook won't suffer this month from the gas prices too bad.

Have a great weekend!

Flowers for Me!

Okay--so I haven't updated on the guy I went out with. Well--we are still seeing each other, and if these flowers I got last night are any indication, I would say things are going pretty well! They were sitting on my desk at work when I came in last night. Aren't they beautiful? Tulips are my favorite. He found that out when we went to the Biltmore Estate on Saturday--I guess he was listening!

This weekend, I will be spending the weekend with him and some of the kids at church. We are going to Alabaster, Alabama, for the regional bible quiz tournament. I am looking forward to going 'home' for a couple of days.

Things at church are good as well. I went to the pastor's house for lunch after church Sunday. His family is so awesome! They have 4 children--all so precious! I am rooming with the pastor's wife in Alabaster. Looking forward to that!

Well, gotta go!
