Life Surprises You Sometimes

How crazy is life? No, really, how crazy and unpredictable is it?

I have been transcribing mine and "Charming"s journals lately and yesterday I was working on my journal from the second semester of college.  (You know, the semester when I met The Hubby.)  It's funny to compare my journal to his journal of the same weeks...I talk about him the first time about four or five months before he talks about me in his. Granted, I am a girl and have about 5-7 entries to each of his one entries.  But still!  Course...I also only wrote about crushes, and dates and drama in mine and he wrote about more intelligent stuff...you know, like working out or selling pest control.  You know, boy stuff.  (I'll have to find a picture of him from back when I met him!  You'll love it!!  I only have one or two from that semester...so tell me if you wanna see them!)

But one of the last entries from that semester...one on April 26, 2006...last day hanging out with him (and other friends) before we all left for summer ends like this: "Sadly this is probably the last time I'll ever see him [The Hubby] again though!" 

Hmmm...six years, a wedding, and one baby later I guess I guessed wrong on that. :-D


  1. That would be so fun to go back and read and compare like that. And yes yes yes I want to see a picture!!

    Are you typing up your journals? That is a good idea, espeically some of my younger years once as my handwriting was horrible!

  2. Hi Sandy!

    First off, I LOVE the new layout of your blog! It's SO cute! :)

    Secondly, thank you for your uber sweet comment today -- it made my day! :)

    And thirdly -- I'm TOTALLY jealous that you have journal entries of Soren's to read! Be they work/working out related -- that is still SO cool. I wish Jake would have been that cerebral back in the college days! ;)

    Hope you have a great week!

  3. Hi Sandy,

    I am just wondering if you are still living in New Mexico. I just moved here a year ago and am trying to connect to other mommy bloggers in the state. I loved meeting up with bloggers in my old state and thought I would reach out to you and see if you would be interested in connecting. I blog at Take It From Me http://www.takeitfrom-me.com I do a lot of product reviews and giveaways. NEWAYS Hope to talk to you soon.
