4 on the Fourth

Woah. Let me brush the dust off this space as it's been laying dormant since the middle of March (my bad). I've fallen behind on sharing over the last few months, but there hasn't been anything life-altering, per se. I'll just focus on a few recent events.

1. I've been reading tons lately. Honestly, I feel like I've read more books in the past five months than I have in years. The Bullet by Mary Louise Kelly is the one I'm sucked into at the moment. I'm a little over halfway through it.

2. I'm not sure if I shared, but G received his GED back in January and he recently enrolled at SPC. He starts in the fall and I couldn't be more proud of the steps that he is taking to better our life together. I, on the other hand, still have one exam to knock out ... math. Dun, dun, duuuuuuun, lol. I've been studying each day and it's slowly starting to come back to me. Fractions and algebra and geometry, oh my. However, I do feel as though I'm understanding it better now than I did whenever I was in high school so that's a good sign! After I receive my GED, I'm planning on enrolling at the same school as G. I'll probably only be able to take 1-2 classes a semester with work, but it's a better plan than waiting until after he's finished. Imagine that. The girl who was so against going back to school has changed her mind. I'm excited, although a little nervous.

3. In other news, I dyed my hair purple the other day (bottom left photo). Although it came out a tad bit on the red side of the spectrum. G keeps saying it looks like sangria, lol. Don't get me wrong, I love it! It just wasn't the exact shade I was going for.

4. On May 1st, my mama celebrated 30 years as a small business owner. We rounded up all of our employees and took them out for a nice dinner at Olive Garden to commemorate the special occasion. Just a heads up, if you have never tried their steak gorgonzola alfredo, you have really been missing out. It was great having everyone together. We really have a great team and I'm thankful for their hard work + dedication to our little family business. Without them, we wouldn't have gotten this far.

And, as a bonus, happy Star Wars Day to my fellow SW lovers out there :)
