10:15 am - WOW--its been awhile
Lots of things have changed for me since I was here last--first and foremost, I am getting married on July 14, 2007 here in my little town of Valley City, ND. We are very excited and wedding planning has been going slowly, but surely! We bought a house in Valley City in February and moved in the first weekend. I got a new job and started Jan. 29th here at Eagle Creek Software. I like it so far and am in the middle of the last 8 weeks of training now. Eventually I will be all trained in and then look out! HA HA! Also, I am quite a bit smaller than I was a year ago as I have lost to date 97 pounds!! I am feeling so much better and by the compliments I get, I assume I look better too!! So, that's me in a nutshell!! Come find me on Myspace or Facebook--I'll be there!

10:41 am - April 2005
After my long absence from Blurty, I thought that I would add another entry. I have been using my MSN blog frequently and here is that address: http://spaces.msn.com/members/headah03/. This is the blog that has made it a little easier to remember to get in and get my life down on paper? In electronic form, anyway.
Alot has changed since my last post. I moved in with my b.f, Corey, in January and that has been going very well. In June, we will be dating 1 year and I would have to say that it is the best year of my life, thus far. My life with Corey and my life with Mike (ex husband) are very different in very important ways and I am very happy that I have found him!
I have decided to go one more semester to obtain my bachelor's degree. There are several reasons for this, but the most imporant one is that I was extremely stressed with working 40+ hours a week and taking 19 credits at school. This was too much and I should have known this from the get-go. I realized that I was sinking before I sunk too far down. I will have 12 credits in the fall, which is much easier to handle!
The latest news is that my ex husband is getting remarried. Even though this isn't a great shock to me, it still hurts me a little and probably always will. Even though I have gotten completely over this and have a great relationship, there will always be a little part of me that will always be affected by him. And I'm sure there will always be a part of me with him. Your first love is one that you never forget and that one person that you will always remember and have a piece of that person with you. I hope that it works out for them, but I have my doubts. I don't think that he truly gave himself the time to get to know himself and what he wanted out of life and out of love. He jumped right into a relationship with another woman and never gave himself time to heal from our divorce. Maybe that's what he wanted. I'm glad that I got the opportunity to truly be single and to know what I want in a relationship. That was very beneficial to me.
I hope that my absence hasn't affected anyone too much, but check out my new blog!
Love and kisses,
Heather

7:44 am - February 8th, 2005
Here we are, the second week of February already and I still want to write January as a date. of course, this is wrong beings as I am waiting impatiently for May to hurry and get here so that I can be done with school ONCE AND FOR ALL. It feels like I have been in forever, but when I look back at it, I did take a whole year off when I got divorced and that has set me back 1 whole year. I am getting to the end of it now, thank goodness.
Today I am going to look at a different car, if the people are around, and I'm excited about that. It's not super-new, but it has very low miles and they are offering it for a low price. I can't pass it up. My Grandma works with the girl that has it for sale and she says it is really nice, so I guess I just have to wait and make sure that it is FOR SURE for sale :)
Love and Kisses,
Heather :)

9:40 am - Monday, Monday
Well, here we are: the week of Christmas. I remember when I was a kid and it just was more than I can handle having wrapped presents under the tree and I didn't know what was in them, but now, it is more than I can handle to be at work with wrapped presents under the tree! HA HA-J/K.
I got an email from my aunt (dad's youngest sister) last night and we are opening gifts on NEW YEAR'S EVE at that side of the family. Unfortunately, they went ahead and chose a day that I have to work. I guess when it comes to this side, they are really self-centered people at times. Some of them are ALL the time, but not the majority. The aunt that lives in Minot, sings for Christmas Eve every year at midnite mass and couldn't come for Xmas Day. This would be fine, but I have other relatives who have a wedding in Minneapolis on New Year's Day, so this posed a problem in getting together because with work schedules, there just wasn't any days that we could get together. We have plans already to spend Christmas Eve and Day with my mom's side of the family. This is always the same, so it is never a problem knowing where you are and when :) This year, however, my psycho aunt (married to my uncle), decides that they are going to make reservations for IceCracking, MN (lake resort), to go ice fishing. This has caused alot of problems in the family and alot of hurt feelings on the part of my Grandma and Grandpa. This makes me very upset as these people have no thoughts about anyone but themselves. I could care less if I ever see her again, but it is her daughters that I never get to see. I do not know the last time that I saw those girls. I used to see them all the time, when I was younger and my aunt wasn't psycho. Then she began to think that everyone was "trying to tell her how to raise her children" and then things got nasty and it became personal. My mom takes the brunt of most of it, but I think that she has come to realize that nothing she says, or does, will make much difference. It is sad, however, that my mom sees them at school everyday of the school week and they can't manage to mutter out a hi or anything like that. It is almost like they lose their tongue when they get around her. This is the worst part of it all: Not only is she psycho, she takes the kids down with her. I'm not sure what the answer is, or if there really is an answer. That has yet to be determined. The fact of the matter is that these children live 3 miles away from their grandparents and they never stop by and see them or talk to them, for that matter. That is the part that I can't handle: they are so close, but just choose not to make contact for fear of what might happen to them at home if they do. I just do not know where the problem lies here. Is she just really that paranoid?? Does she have a grudge that she is holding against someone in the family?? IS SHE PSYCHO?? (the most obvious choice). I just wish for my cousin's sake that this will end, or lighten up, soon so that they will not regret it when our grandparents are no longer here and they wish they had spent more time with them.
Love and Kisses,
Heather :)

9:36 am - Manic Monday
Well, it is Mondy again..woohoo. Thankfully, today I work 9-6, so it won't be such a long day :) I am very ready for finals to be over, at this point, and get on with the holidays. This is my favorite time of the year. I am getting more and more excited as the month goes on to move into our new apartment. I guess the thought of my own house, and space, again is exciting for me and I am happy that we made this decision. I thought long and hard about it and what it could mean for our relationship and the good far outweighed the bad. The thing of it is, we have not, in the almost 6 months that we have been dating, had a fight that required real hurt feelings. most of the dissagreements that we have are not disagreements at all--we both thought the same thing, but there was one person that was making a bad decision for the union and, therefore, there was a misunderstanding of sorts. I enjoy having a relationship that doesn't involve yelling or slamming doors, etc.
I love him so much :) Life is good.
Love and Kisses,
Heather :)

7:41 am - Let it snow, Let it sn...aw, forget it--let is SLEET
Woke up and saw that it is raining and sleeting outside. It sounds like this is going to continue all day and we are supposed to get 1-3 inches of snow. Sounds like Fargo will be white, white, white :)
All my blurty buddies need to get POSTING!! So I am leaving you with a boring post until you get one up, finally :)
Love and Kisses,
Heather :)

Better get back to work.
Love and Kisses,
Heather :)

4:03 pm - Monday Mornings are always my favorite
I hate Mondays..you are tired because you have to get out of bed earlier than the weekend, when you sleep until 11 or later.
It looks like we will be moving into our new apartment on January 29th, 2005 at 10AM. I am glad that we can get in early as I will be in the middle of school and I don't want to get too involved in homework, etc. and then not be able to get the moving done in a timely matter. I am hoping to get alot of the things that I need packed during the Christmas break. My roomate is going to be moving on January 3rd and so she will be packing too. I will just have to live with a bunch of boxes in the house for a few weeks, which won't bother me that much--I'll live.
Well, I better get back to work.
Love and Kisses,
Heather :)

11:13 am - New apartment
Hi everyone!! I just wanted to let all my blurty friends know that I will be moving into a new apartment, with Corey, on Feb. 1st. I signed the lease this morning and he will sign it this afternoon. Now that I have done that, I am now getting a little nervous. ha ha. Corey mentioned that he is nervous about moving in because he has not lived with anyone of the opposite sex before. I have given it alot of thought and looked at pros and cons, etc. And I know that we are going to have a great place! We are in the corner, on the 3rd floor. I don't necessarily like the 3rd floor, but I think that it will be fine. We have air conditioning and we should stay warmer in the winter.
Well, I just wanted everyone to know of this exiciting change in my life.
Love and Kisses,
Heather :)

7:23 am - WOOHOO
Tuesday nite was a great night~I went over to Corey's and had a financial meeting with him as he is getting all of his debt consolidated into one loan. I think this is the best thing for him at this point to get that taken care of NOW. He says that he feels overwhelmed by all the minimum payments that he has to pay and, I think, this will be easier.
As we were lying there cuddling and watching TV, he says, "We need to have a serious talk". Now, at this point I'm thinking the absolute worst, but it just gets better from there. He went on to say, "I have been thinking alot about it and I think that I am ready to make a move and I was hoping that you would be my roomate!" I am totally excited as we talked about this is October and he didn't feel he was ready, which was fine, and now we have been apt. hunting for the past couple of days. We saw 2 yesterday we liked, but one had a fireplace that took up ALOT of room and I'm not so sure about that. The other was nice too, but people were living there and so I couldn't get a good feel of the space.
Well, better get to work.
Love and Kisses,
Heather :)

8:39 am - Good Morning to All :)
Another cold, winter day is upon us. I am already hating winter and getting up, going out in my Pjs, and starting the car so that I don't have to sit and scrape the windshield for 20 minutes. I hate ND!! I think that we all forget just how much winter sucks during the summer months and then when it rolls around it hits us like a ton of bricks. That's what happened to me, anyway. I remembered how nice it would be to live somewhere warm, just for the winter. I would miss the 4 seasons, though, as I love to have snow on Christmas.
Last night I spent all night finishing up some homework that is due for Accounting tomorrow. I missed bowling, but Corey did bowl well (a 659 series). He was excited. Tonite we will be going through his debt/credit card bills, etc. and get him ready to consolidate into a consumer loan. I know that he is very nervous for this, but he also knows that it is something that he has to do. He can't continue to make just the minimum as this will never get him anywhere.
Gotta get back to work.
Love and Kisses,
Heather :)

10:16 pm - Last night
Last night I dared to step where I have not for at least a year...contact with my ex husband. YES....gasp gasp. I felt that it was necessary to make him aware that I have forgiven him for all that happened and at some point in our adult lives, I would like to sit down and actually talk like normal people again. To clear the air of bad vibes...forever. I think that the adult thing to do in this situation is to do something like this and to come to the realization that I did have a friend and confident for 7 years and that is something that was greatly lost in the shuffle.
I have a new life, that is never going to change, but I can change the way that I feel about the past. And I hope someday that I will.
Love and Kisses,
Heather :)

10:21 pm - Hi everyone!
Hello to all my faithful blurty readers :) Tonite was a trip through financial lane and an enlightening day for Corey, I think. One problem led to another problem and before I knew it all the problems were on the table. This was an improvement on other conversations we had as he actually asked for help, which he never does. This, to me, means that he wants to change the financial trouble that he has found himself in as well as get his seizures taken care of. I think we're getting somewhere now!!
Well, I am off to bed, it has been a tiring day for me with all this thinking. "National Treasure" is a good movie!!!
Love and Kisses,
Heather :)

1:51 pm - Saturday
Well, it seems to me that the arrangement that we had for cleaning the house sure hasn't helped much. She came home and then went shopping, like every Sat, with her mom and dad. I think that the whole thing is bullshit, but that's just my opinion on the matter. I'm really sick oif paying rent and being the live-in maid.
Well, I'm off to finish the cleaning that she is supposed to do.
Love and Kisses,
Heather :)

10:06 am - thanksgiving
Well, Thanksgiving has come and gone and now that could only mean one thing: the holiday season is here and, for ND, so is the snow. We got a very tiny amount of snow yesterday, but this morning we woke up and there is more on the ground and more coming down. I love snow, but I don't like driving in it! I hope that the roads stay descent at least for today so that we can make it to the concert. My sister, my mom, and I are going to the Martina McBride concert tonite for our first annual "Anderson women's nite out". It should be a good time--if the weather cooperates.
Yesterday was a good time. Corey mentioned that it seems so much more relaxed at my mom's side of the family than on my dad's and I simply explained--because it is. the morale is higher because we don't have idiot relatives to deal with---at least one's that show up :) I'm hoping that we can have a good Xmas again this year with no moron "children" to deal with. Let's hope.
That's all for now.
Love and Kisses,
Heather :)

9:29 am - Hi everyone
Hello! Well, its the Wed before Thanksgiving and Corey and I are planning to go to my parent's house tonite through Friday. I am so glad that he has gotten over the "family" quarrel that he had earlier this week as I was really worried about him. I guess it just takes a little love from me to realize that I do care about him, love him, and that my family considers him their own.
Well, love and kisses to all--I'm back to work.
Heather :)

11:27 am - Finally Friday
Well, the day that I wait for all week is finally here! Friday. Last night Corey picked me up from work and he took me out to The Olive Garden--my favorite restaurant-- and he bought me a new sweatshirt--TWINS. It was a very fun nite and something that I really needed. I was at work yesterday for 11 hours and 45 minutes, so you can about imagine how exhausted I was and didn't want to go home and cook, or do anything for that matter :) I had a chance to relax, have good conversation with Corey, and go to bed a little early.
This weekend should be pretty laid back--I don't have anything planned other than a shopping trip to the mall with my mom and sister on Sunday. That should be fun, but I have not gotten my paycheck yet, or know the amount, so I am not sure how much I can spend. That is the real kicker :(
Well, I better get back to work. Have a great weekend everyone! MWWWAH!
Love and Kisses,
Heather

7:36 am - Tuesday Morning
I think that someone needs to teach me how to go to bed at night--at a descent time. I think that sometimes I forget how tired I get/am and think that I can stay up and watch "the movie on TV that I have seen a hundred times". Time to just go to bed and get ready for the next day of school and work. Please God let me remember how tired I was today and go to bed the rest of the week :) I think that part of the problem is that I know I won't be able to sleep, so I don't even bother until late at night (after midnite). Because Corey isn't there, I have a hard time sleeping and, therefore, don't bother trying until my eyes are so heavy that I can't stand it one more second. That is just something that I am going to have to get used to because he can't be there any other night other than Saturday nites. Get over it, Heather :)
Love and kisses,
Heather :)
