Haiku Friday

Haiku Friday

Winter is here now
I am not a fan of cold
Can summer come now?

Christmas is closer
Hard to believe, one year gone
This time last year though

Things much different
Wonder what next year will bring
I will finish school

That diploma will
finally be mine, thank God!
Seems like a long time.

I've been thinking a lot lately about how fast this year has gone and how much things have changed since this time last year. Things have really turned around with my job, relationship (other than the past few months....we'll just ignore that), family and many other things. But there is some worry for the coming year. The security of my dads job is up in the air and the same goes for my brother. Working construction in the winter isn't always a guarantee that you'll have work to do, they laid off about 25 more people yesterday and I can tell he is worried that once his job is done he could be next. As for my dad, thats the scary one.....I just keep praying that by some miracle he can stay at the company he works for doing something else.

I am soooooo glad its the weekend after having to travel this week and being super busy! Today I have a meeting with my advisor post-finals to see how my progress is coming and to talk about my summer class. Tomorrow is Geek Mom's sons birthday party (did I mention she is my oldest and dearest friend) then going to the zoo lights with Andrew! Sunday I have to take my adopt-a-child gifts to church, it feels good to be able to help someone out this year since last year I was too broke to participate!

Well all for now, have a good weekend everyone!!!!!!!!

Aww, you're so sweet! I wish we weren't too broke to give to charities this year... we've given like 3 bucks to church, 1 dollar at a time, but that's it.

I'm glad things are less crazy for you now and can't wait to see you on Saturday! (Thanks for linking to my blog!)

Last year I didn't have the money to adopt a kid at church, but I wanted to this year!! I'm excited for tomorrow!!! My mom and dad will be there too!
