A Long Update

Here is an update that is pretty random and long (mostly about me). I hope you all are doing great! I have some catching up to do!
The boys are doing great….but they are not use to the time difference so they wake me up at four in morning by jumping on me, barking, wrestling on top of me, or scratching at the door. I am not a morning person at all so this makes me very unhappy. Today butters threw something up….I went to look at it an it was part of his toy…..I am so happy he threw it up because I had no idea he swallowed it. I am definitely taking away any toys he tears up and I am really going to watch him when he plays with them. I went on a little run with butterball the other day and he is a great running buddy!! Sadly, he did better than me…..I haven’t went running since sophomore year of high school when I had PE. So I am really out of shape.

The boys and I didn’t do anything for Halloween. Since it landed on a Sunday I went over my grandparents house. I go spend the night at their house on Sunday night and Tuesday because my school is only a few minutes away. If I didn’t do that I would be driving about 30 miles in traffic really early in the morning. I just got my license in July so I am not that experienced of a driver….so I don’t feel like stressing out in the morning. Next year I plan on making their costumes to match mine…..I might even dress the boys up for Christmas. I am pretty excited that this will be my first Christmas with both of the boys!!

My brother(Kenny) and I have been spending a lot of time with each other. We have always been close. We do everything together and he takes me out on dates and gets my flowers.

I’ve decided to start decorating my room since I didn’t decorate it (everything is my sister’s)….so far I have a new bed spread, a lamp, and I am thinking about painting my room, and getting new furniture.

Daniel and I broke up…..he never has the time to talk since it is a military college….I guess I am not very supportive of him….lately he has been talking about joining the military and this makes me very unhappy….I can barely deal with him being away for college….but another four years for the military…I don’t really want to go through that. We are trying to work things out…but not much progress has been made. Maybe when he comes home, we will be able to talk face to face and work things out. But right now I am feeling a lot of resentment….I know its stupid but I feel like he would rather do everything else besides be with me (he tells me all the time he hates that school). Any advice? I don’t have friends since I focused all my time into school and Daniel while I was in high school..

School is going great. I have all A’s, but I am a little worried about my English grade since it is a really low A. As you can probably tell, I am not the best writer in the world, so I struggle a lot with writing essays. One good thing that has come out of writing a certain essay is it helped me decide what I want to do. Our topic was how a liberal arts education benefit’s the career you are going to enter. Well, I thought I wanted to be a doctor but it turns out I wouldn’t really like it. So after all my research I decided to research pharmacy….turns out I am very interested in it….so I took the time to research pharmacy schools and it turns out they want you to have some experience in pharmacy. So I am going to take the pharmacy technician program at my school. I already applied for it, but its acceptance is based on first come first accept. So I am crossing my fingers!! It will set me back a little on my general education, but oh well! I will have a better chance of getting into pharmacy school later, I will have some knowledge on pharmacy, and I will have a job! It will take me three semesters if I devote all my time to the program and if I get the classes I need. One semester will be an externship. I am pretty excited!

Back to talking about the boys….they are getting along great they play all the time and the sharing thing with butters is getting better. Butters has learned that if he wants a toy Benny has, then he needs to go play tug-a-war for it. I am still working on barking with butters….he barks at everything. Its getting rather annoying. I think I just need to make sure I correct him every time he barks. Advice again? I uploaded a couple photos of the boys….I am sad to realize that I haven’t taken any pictures of the boys lately….and I am planning on taking the boys out more and taking pictures! Maybe then I will have a lot more to blog about!


I hope everyone is doing great!!
Have a great weekend
Love Karen, Butterball, and Benny
