Where does the time go????

I can't believe it has been almost 3 WEEKS since we've been home from Eleuthera!! It feels like just yesterday I made the mad dash at 1 a.m. to pick up Perri for the start of our journey! I had such a great time this year in Eleuthera. We met lots of new people, found the night-life in Eleuthera (yes, nightlife!), and had a relaxing time. Being with Perri for 9 days just reconfirmed what a great friendship we have and how much I truly think of her as my big sis!! She is so much fun to be around and the two of us together....FUGITABOUTIT!!!! LOL


Got lots of attention while there, that was a big confidence booster! Did feel bad though, 'cause people kept asking if Perri was my mom. I SO DON'T think she looks old enough to be my mom. I hope that doesn't deter her from going places with me. I LOVE her youthful spirit and I think she's beautiful! She may not have felt it was a compliment, but on the upside...I would be proud to be her daughter!!
OMG...and who BUT Perri could get our rental that we promised not to "drive in the sand", off the grassy cliff that I managed to wedge us on with the back rear tire completely off the ground and the front bumper nearly buried in sand!! She told me to MOVE! and she floored that bad-boy - door open and all! The car lurched forward, sand went flying, the was door swinging...but she got it out of the hole I managed to get us in. The two of us sat there laughing so hard, I thought we were going to be our pants!!!

Vacation was great, but now I'm home and back to reality. I'm so cornfused right now...life has thrown some tings at me that I just don't want to deal with. I keep telling Perri I'm having a mid-life crisis, but she assures me I'm too young...(Are you sure???) 'Cause I really think I want to go buy a two-seater and drive off into the sunset...

Maybe not that drastic...but I am just not sure about alot of things. I'm torn between being in school and being at home, being at work and being at home, being in a relationship and not being in one, Oye Vay!! It's enough to drive a person crazy.

I didn't call home much while I was in Eleuthera and it didn't really bother me...not sure if that is a good or bad thing. The house was not as bad as I expected, but certainly not the way it was when I left. Lauren had terrible allergies while I was gone, that luckily mom and dad took care of. Thank goodness they are so close!!

I'm just about finished with this semester. Managed to get an A in English, Student Development and Trial Practice thus far. Still awaiting my Philosophy grade...fingers crossed for a A!

You are never too young or old to have a mid-life crisis. I have my crazy car! I am glad you had fun but I know how life goes back to "normal" when you're back from a great vaca! Next year count me in.

"Midlife crisis is a term coined in 1965 by Elliott Jaques and used in Western societies to describe a period of dramatic self-doubt that is felt by some individuals in the "middle years" of life, as a result of sensing the passing of youth and the imminence of old age. Sometimes, transitions experienced in these years, such as aging in general, menopause, the death of parents, or children leaving home, can trigger such a crisis. The result may be a desire to make significant changes in core aspects of day to day life or situation, such as in career, marriage, or romantic relationships." Per Wikipedia....You are just in CRISIS! When you look in the mirror and wonder where the last 45 years went.....you are in the middle of your life....or nearing the end for some, or just plain lucky to be alive:) I THINK you are at a "crossroads!" I keep bloody telling you that don't I. You are only 33!! Take the road less travelled I tell you!
