I have robbed my friends of the opportunity to play match maker.

I did it myself. :)  So to those who told me I WOULD find happiness again... you were right.  And he was there the whole time.

Maybe I will share more details later... but everything is wonderful right now.

I am finding that it is difficult to stay passionate about school in the summertime.  That seven-week anatomy course was an ass kicker.  I may re-take it at Grand Valley next fall even though I passed with a B.  It's not what I NEED though!  Organic chem/biochem is another ass kicker.  But I have another month yet to get my crap together and if I can get a B in this, I'll be happy.  I don't know about re-taking this one though.  I hate labs.

I still plan on applying to the nursing program this fall with the expectation that I won't get in so I am also going to look at Ferris' program, apply to that, and depending on how that goes, re-apply at GVSU next year.  Luckily, I have time.

And so just maybe, a teeny tiny bit, having a boyfriend is a slight distraction from school... especially for me... but I don't care because just knowing that these feelings are possible again is probably the greatest thing in the world.  It IS the greatest thing in the world.  It trumps school by a whole lot in my opinion.  But I am still managing to stay somewhat focused.

The kids are doing well.  Chloe is starting to talk a lot more.  Or trying to talk.  Noah is a very passionate almost-three-year-old.  He wants things done a certain way.  And he must know exactly what is going to happen with his day so he can mentally prepare ahead of time.

Life is one giant blessing.


  1. I'm so happy for you, sweetie. I've been following your story since the beginning. I lost a serious boyfriend in a car accident when I was in college, and thought for so long that I would never find happiness again. But I am now married and will soon have 2 little ones under 2. Sometimes you get lucky in life and find love twice. And it helps to have an angel up there guiding you to your 2nd love. Hugs to you!

  2. This makes me really, really happy to read.

  3. So happy to read this!
