Ok so I'm pretty new to all this... I must suck at blogging! LOL!

So I'm sitting here at work, wondering.... what's the point of me being here... Hence, I'm looking for something new. I'm just SOOOOOO BORED!! This place sucks! And the benefits are befitting to a prison inmate. Actually I think a prison inmate might have benefits than this place gives out to its more than loyal patrons. All I have to say is:

:) So yeah... Anyone have a fun and exciting job they want to trade for my mediocre desk job? lol

Melancholy Monday

Today is bittersweet, in a sense. It's my 30th birthday, so I should be excited, yet it's just a melancholy day. It's the anniversary of my mom's death, so my birthday will always remind me she's gone. It's only been 3 years. She was my best friend. She was artistic, loving, friendly, funny, intelligent, creative, self-sufficient, witty, a little on the crazy side, and just an amazing person all the way around. I've always known that. But it so nice to hear and see other people who also know that. She was an angel here on earth. She is truly loved, and missed.

On the lighter side, my birthday has been good. I've gotten to go to dinner with my Dad, and I got to spend a nice quiet weekend with my family... I'm thankful for my daughter and husband... they've been such a blessing in my life. I love them both! Without them, I don't know where I'd be. And my dad for being the best support ever!

Hi! For those of you who don't know me (and for those who do), you may call me Eren. I'm just a smalltown girl from the midwest who's got a lot on her mind, and even more in her heart.

Currently my family and I live in Northern Indiana near where I grew up. I feel as though I've come full circle.... Growing up here, I hated it. I can't really pinpoint one reason more than another as to why, but I hated it.... with a fierce passion! I could tell you it was the frigid winters... which, by the way, I still despise.... or the fact that being here, we are nowhere near a beach.... or that most of my friends had moved away.... There are many reasons.

So when I turned 21, I myself decided to move on. I picked up what few belongings I had, and moved to Florida. No money, no college under my belt, and even worse, no clue. There, I met some of the best people I know. A few of which are still some of my most cherished friends.

After nearly two years of remaining clueless, I decided it was time... Time to grow up and get a life. I knew I had little direction and had a string of deadend jobs, and no skills to fall back on. So.... I joined the military.... but not just any branch. I had to go all the way, you see. I joined the Marines. I maintain it was the best decision I could've ever made.

After bootcamp and combat training, I met my future husband. He was amazing! Smart, funny, athletic, romantic, and handsome. For me he was a dream come true. For that reason, I figured he was just a dream... he had to have been putting on a front. But to my delight, he was and still is for real. We've been married over six years now, and going strong! We also have a beautiful daughter, who is every bit as funny, smart, athletic, and just a lot of fun to be around.

So after one tour in the military, my husband and I decided not to reenlist. And after a few months of spending time with his side of the family in North Carolina, we decided to move to Indiana to be near mine. Which brings me back to square one..... hating the weather, lack of beaches, and not having many close friends here.

So here is how I entertain myself....

I admit... I'm a geek. I love playing MMORPG's. I currently play World of Warcraft. You may have heard of it! It's not really an escape from reality.... but moreso a way to dive into my own fantasy world. :) Anyway... if you'd like to learn more about it, the link is to the right. Since you know why I'm here, I'll leave you on that note....

Until next time....
