Oh What A Night

Last night my friend Brie and I decided we would go to a hockey game at 9:45 pm. It had been raining off and on all day but it didn't seem to be a big deal. The ride there was fine, we grabbed a bite to eat and went to the game. After two periods we decided that our team was boring to watch so we decided to head out.

We both needed to grab a few things from Wal Mart, so we figured since we were already in Waterville, we would just stop there. We ended up being there until midnight! When we left, it had started snowing and the roads were beginning to get slushy...uh oh....

So we were driving and we felt the car slip a bit but it seemed like everything was under control....until the last swerve....Brie thought she had gotten the car back under control so she did was any person would do, and one of the worst things you can do while sliding.....brake.

The next part seemed like it took forever to happen when in reality it could not have been more than a few seconds. We slid, and spun to the other side of the road and went into a ditch on my side. My thought process was insane!

The whole time we were sliding I could hear myself say to Bire, "relax, you got this, relax, we're going to be okay." I noticed no cars were coming so I was very grateful for that. I realized we were going off the side of the road into the ditch, so I closed my eyes, gritted my teeth, and waited for the pain.

When the car finally stopped the first thing I checked was to make sure Brie was okay. She was very shaken, but physically fine. I then realized my body was numb from the adrenaline and even if I was hurt I would not have felt it. I checked the window, fine, I checked my body, not a scratch. I then started feeling the pounding in my head and realized I had hit my head off of the passenger window. Damn did it hurt! I then felt the twinge in my neck, and the very painful spot in my back. It can't be anything serious because here I sit typing this, but it still really hurts.

We had to wait 45 minutes for the tow truck, mind you we called AAA at around ten past twelve at it was very cold. The car is okay, both passenger side doors are dented and the car needs a serious front end alignment but other than that, it was quite a trooper!

In reality we were only 30 mins from campus, according to the GPS, but we took it very slow, because we were both shaking and nervous. We finally got home safe at 2am! Neither of us went to our classes today because we are sore and exhausted, but we talked to our teachers and they fully understand.

Tomorrow I am heading to Auburn to see my soldier! I am so excited but it is supposed to snow a lot so Brie and I are nervous now to travel. We'll be okay though. A lot of people have asked why we don't just stay on campus, but, 1) she needs to get her car checked out, 2) she doesn't want to go alone, and 3) I gotta see my babe!

So keep us in your prayers for tomorrow and wish us a safe trip because we need it!

Back to Reality

Well, spring vacation number one wasn't exactly the best. I worked, went tanning, and dealt with the dramatic people of Auburn. This is the first time I have actually been glad to be back in Farmington, weird huh?

Not too much to say, this week was pretty lame. I had to come back to UMF today instead of tomorrow because I have to work at good old DD tomorrow morning at 8am....oh joy!

Missing the boyfriend but hey that is no surprise, missing cheering, and so glad to be back on my own.

My love, My life, My soldier

Finally! Pictures! I had to post this one because even though CJ is in Afghanistan he still is being his silly self with his cheesy grin :) I was so excited to see that he posted pictures last night. It is so nice to see his face. A face that I miss so much. I am doing alright at the moment, these pictures definitely have helped me come to terms with things. All I can do is support him 100% and wait for his phone calls.

I adore this, of course we are all worried about him and he can still make me laugh! What a goober :) I would like to thank everyone that has been so supportive of me, CJ, and his family at times like this. It is sooooo needed and even just saying one kind word can brighten my day.

I love you Ssgt Twomey. Stay safe, come home soon, and remember, I'll see you later :)

**I can't hug you on the phone, so hurry home**

I am sick of being in here! It is awful! Spring vacation number one starts Friday, I can't wait to go home and be around people that care about me.

Tonight is going to be a busy night. I have class 230-330, tumbling 430-6ish, practice 7-9, then studying my tush off with Lyndsay for our Ecology test tomorrow.

I have slept so much the past few days, why am I still so tired? Ughhhh I am simply drained.

Fake A Smile...

That is what I have been doing today. I woke up sick, like, super sick. I think it may be because of stress and the fact that I tossed and turned all night. I didn't even leave my room today except to go to dinner. I need to get off my butt, good thing I have cheering tonight....and thank God for Jordyn, she has been trying so hard to keep me positive.

I have decided that once the cupcakes my Memere made me are gone it is time to eat healthy, work out, and get in better shape. If CJ is working his tush off I feel that I should be too! He has already started working hard and training hard so it is time for me to step up and do the same.

I just hope that the WHOLE Twomey family knows, I am here for you all. I love you all, and I hope that you guys will talk to me when you need someone to lean guys really are family to me....Keep your chins up, I sure am trying, we can get through this, but only if we pull together.

Our Last Picture....

4 Days...

I am exhausted, hungry, and sore. I got my butt kicked by cheering tonight. I have marks everywhere and really hurt my knee but it was a pretty successful practice overall. We got approved for a full budget, I am SO excited! Mats and Uniforms here we come!

The days are going by quickly and I am getting more and more nervous...I still can't believe what is happening right now....I never thought that I would see this day. I am afraid I won't be able to say goodbye. I want to see him board the plane but right now it is looking like that is not going to happen :( *sigh* I hope things work out but the way this year has been going who freaking knows...

I love you boo, the kids are gonna miss you<3

6 Days

This weekend hold memories that I will forever keep. 6 days and I have to say see you later to the love of my life. To see the pics from this weekend check out Hallie's blog at Wonderful World of Wieners to see CJ's Deployment Party Pictures, no sense of us both posting them :)

Today, while I was in class, CJ decided to rearrange my room for me and surprise me with it. I LOVE IT! It is so much more roomy now and it has his touch and I simply adore it. How awesome of a guy is he?!?!?

Yesterday we went to the Boston Museum of Science with his pen pal (FROM CALIFORNIA!!) and we went to the Harry Potter exhibit. Coolest day ever? I think so! CJ bought me a quill and ink set that is so freaking awesome! He also got us a chocolate frog to snack on :)

I don't care how horrendous my make up looks in this picture, I adore it, and it makes me happy every time I see it. So rag on it if you wish but I love it and nobody can make me think otherwise!
