I am officially an Auntie Julie now... As of September 6, 2004.

It's a boy!

Ryan Michael Talbot
7lbs 4oz
20in long

Aww, he's a cutie! And I'm so excited about it. Only bummer thing now is that my brother leaves for Iraq a week from tomorrow.

Next:

So, maybe someone could help me out...
I keep getting bothered by an ex of mine - someone I'm not particularly fond of at all. Bad dude! Anyway, he's called me... I don't know how many times and you'd think he'd get the hint once he realized I'm not calling him back nor am I going to. He's also text'd me on my phone and do I text him back... um... NO! Get a clue dude! As for my current boyfriend, Mike, he knows about it and says he's not bothered by it but I know he is. I just want this dude to stop trying to get ahold of me or leaving messages on my phone that sound like he wants me again. It creeps me out! But I dont want to call him and tell him to stop b/c I just DON'T want to talk to him! Only reason this is on my mind right now is b/c he just text'd me this morning. (Cringe) So... anyone know what I should do?

I think it's just the coolest when suddenly someone you've been thinking about lately and haven't spoken to in a while just randomly contacts you somehow. Things like that can always put a smile on your face... well, if you like the person that is.

Just a random thought for the day! Now it's back to work!

09:26 pm
It was 7:00am and all I could hear was the tune to Batman playing in the background... Still groggy, since I was sleeping so peacefully, I got up to realize that it was my cell phone ringing. All I could remember thinking was, "who in their right mind would be calling me at this time in the morning... on my day off even!" Good thing I answered it though... Turns out it was my Mom with one of the worst phone calls I could ever receive.

My brother is in the Army National Guard Reserves and we all knew that he had been warned about going to Iraq, but a warning still has a chance of not being sent over. Yesterday, however, has changed everything! I guess at about 6:45am yesterday morning my brother got the call. He's leaving for sure in the beginning of September. Like that isn't bad enough, my brother has his first child on it's way and it's due September 22nd. He's suppose to be here for the birth of his baby!

You never really think about the war too much until it hits you personally. I know I didn't give the war in Iraq much thought previous to this. Sure I knew men and women were over there fighting and dying for our country, but it wasn't anyone I knew. It was sad knowing that many had passed away, but it didn't bother me terribly. And yes, it was selfish of me to feel this way, but I've never really had an opinion on Politics or the War before, so I wasn't about to get involved then either. Now all I want is for the war to stop and for everyone to come home. That way my brother wouldn't have to go!

It saddens me so much to think my one and only brother could possibly never come home. I've heard horror stories from friends of mine that I have since met after the fact of returning home from the war, and it frightens me knowing my brother is definitly on his way over there in less than 3 months. I've got to stay positive and I've got to keep my faith up that he will come home. I've just got to!

What about his wife though and the two kids he's adopted that he loves so much. What about the baby that'll be born late September... my brother won't be there!

Damn you Bush!!! Damn you!

10:29 pm - Dear ol' Cottey C
So I'm sitting here at work with absolutely NOTHING to do. The phone isn't ringing and people aren't coming to the desk for help. Oh, and incase you didn't know I work at a Resort at the Front Desk... hey, it's pretty good pay for a poor college student like myself. So since there's nothing to do of course my mind wanders and I just start thinking about things... especially the past...

Sometimes I sit back and wish I was still at Cottey. Why is it when your in the midst of things the grass is always greener on the other side? When I lived at Cottey all I wanted was to live at home here in San Diego, but now that I'm here I look back on things while I was at Cottey and realize how good I really had it there.

Everytime someone here in California hears that I went to school for two years in Missouri they automatically assume I'm crazy or something for actually volunteering to live in what they call "Misery", but the truth of the matter is, is that some of my best memories took place there. Sure classes were a challenge (that's good though...isn't it?)... don't even get me started about Astronomy (barf), but things were good there. There was no need for this work mumbo jumbo and I could actually take the time to focus on my school work. Now I'm always so busy trying to earn a buck to pay rent that sometimes I forget about my priorities.

I also made some of my most closest friends there and I met some people there who I will never forget. Even the ones who I had little tiffs with I hope to keep in touch with. The only bummer part about Cottey is that all your friends are from around the United States if not around the World. It kind of sucks when all you want is to see your best bud who use to just live down the hall from you, but now she's over 1,000 miles away.

I guess what all this has taught me is to just appreciate what you've got at that moment in time. Things aren't always greener on the other side and that's something my Mom's been telling me since I was small... yet I still sometimes tend to think it is.

To all my Cottey girls out there I miss you all tons! (Arizona Suite, Rosemary Suite (both years) and everyone else I knew and had a blast with!)

I'm not a perfect person
As many things I wish I didn't do
But I continue learning
I never meant to do those things to you
And so I have to say before I go
That I just want you to know

I've found a reason for me
To change who I used to be
A reason to start over new
and the reason is you

I'm sorry that I hurt you
It's something I must live with everyday
And all the pain I put you through
I wish that I could take it all away
And be the one who catches all your tears
Thats why i need you to hear

I've found a reason for me
To change who I used to be
A reason to start over new
and the reason is You [x4]

I'm not a perfect person
I never meant to do those things to you
And so I have to say before I go
That I just want you to know

I've found a reason for me
To change who I used to be
A reason to start over new
and the reason is you

I've found a reason to show
A side of me you didn't know
A reason for all that I do
And the reason is you
