The Sweetest Moment

I was sitting in Church yesterday with my friends who are married: Tim and Heather. Tim served communion & collected the offering. So, it was just Heather and I sitting in the pew. After the offering was taken from the congregation, Tim went to the front of the church. As Tim was in front of the entire congregation, Tim winked at Heather. It was one of the Sweetest Moments of my Life. I instantly thought "What a Great Guy"! This moment made a huge impact on me. It made me realize I will not settle for a Husband....God has the perfect man for me!

Red Head Moment# 5002

Tonight, I tried to unlock my front door. I panicked for a small second. I thought I tried to unlock my door......but it was already unlocked......I totally freaked. One of my fears is coming home to find some stranger freak in my apartment. I suddenly realized that I did not even unlock my door, I simply tried to lock. Yep, my friends, this is what I like to call another Red Head Moment.

I think the TEXAS HEAT is getting to me.

PMS & Chocolate!

I am PMSing this week. Today, I woke up at 4:30am to get to the gym! Do you want to know how bad I am PMSing this week? When the alarm went off at 4:30am, the very first thing I thought about was CHOCOLATE!!!! The second thing was "I DO NOT WANT TO WORK OUT!" Since I have not been to the gym in 2.5 weeks, I decided to finally get back into the swing of things!

The gym was great this morning. I have WAY more energy than I have had in weeks this time in the afternoon. Exercising does the body Good! :)

New Apartment!

I moved last weekend! The move itself was not stressful. I am stressing about actually "putting my home back in order." I am completely unpacked. I still have things that need to find a place. The wall art needs to be hung. The living room still needs to re-arranged!
I have a major problem in my new apartment. The sun shines in my bedroom the hottest part of the day. It's extremely hot in my room. I think I finally found some pretty curtains for my room that blocks out 98.5% of the light. I still need to get some blinds that block out the rest of the light.

When you move, how long does it take you to get "settled in"?

60 Minutes ran a touchy topic in the last couple of weeks: Gays in the Military: The Don't ask, Don't tell policy. I'm very conservative until it comes to my opinion/views on Homosexuality. I am extremely liberal when it comes to this topic. In college, I met an amazing man, Trevor, who is still one of the most important people in my life today. My 2nd semester Trevor told me he was Gay. He was the first friend who actually came out to me. I thought, "Okay, Now pass me the ketchup." In other words, it never affected my friendship with him. Trevor was still the same person he was before he told he was gay. He was still the wacky, adorable, zany person he always he was.

The Don't ask, Don't tell policy has always bothered me. It is better than the old policy of NO Gays in the Military at all. What difference should a person's sexual orientation have on their job performance as a Soldier? Sexual Orientation should not make a difference if a person wants to fight for this country. Honestly, I do not know why this is such a big deal. I would rather have a gay Soldier who is brave & strong fight for me than some of the straight men I know.

Last week, my friend Mel and I were talking about our "future" children. She said she would prefer a child who was not gay. I said I did not mind what sexual orientation my child had. I would love him/her all the days of my life. As long as my child was happy, then I would be happy for him/her.

I'm actually proud of California for allowing Gay Marriage. I understand most people feel marriage is between a man and woman.....for procreation. What happens when a man and woman get married and never have children? Should that couple not ever get married? Marriage should be based on Love, not on gender. In Society, it's hard to find Love. We live in a very cruel world. If a person does find someone, it should not ever matter what sexual orientation they have.
