May is just around the corner, and I'm already looking forward to June.
I know that it's technically not a good idea to wish one's life away, but I'm wishing May away with all my heart. The wish may even come true halfway through the month when I blow out my birthday cake candles. I mean...if that's even what I end up wishing for. I can't tell you because a birthday wish won't come true if you tell people what it is. However, don't be surprised if you wake up the day after I blow out my candles and the date is June 1.
Just for kicks, AND for my own benefit (so I don't forget anything), here what's coming up in May:
May 1: CDL driving exam. Keep your fingers crossed that I pass it. I've improved a lot, but...who knows if I'll have testing day jitters and end of failing because I ran over half a class of kindergartners on their way back to school from a field trip to the park.
May 1: Women in Business board meeting.
May 2: Possible date with boyfriend. If not, and maybe if so, Pie in the Sky with friends. Mmmm. Pie. Yummy!
May 3: A couple possibilities - hiking Bryce Canyon, working, driving to American Fork, date with bf, and/or something else that I can't remember. It'll come to me eventually. I hope.
May 4: If I didn't drive to AF on Saturday, I'll be driving to AF this day, after church, of course.
May 5: Industrial hearing tests in AF. Driving to Tooele. (For you non-Utahns, it's pronounced Too-ill-uh.)
May 6: Industrial hearing tests in Tooele. Driving home.
May 8: Dinner with high school friends. Also, the birthdays of one of my best friends - she'll be 30!! - and a beloved missionary companion who will be turning 31.
May 9-10: Probably a date or two with bf and/or playing with friends/family.
May 11: Mother's Day. Surely, my family will have some sort of celebration for my mom.
May 12: Driving to Price, after church, of course.
May 13: Industrial testing in Price. Driving home.
May 14: Industrial testing at local manufacturing plant.
May 15: Industrial testing at same local manufacturing plant. It's also my birthday. I'll be 31, in case you were wondering. Because I'll be working most of the day, I'm not planning anything special on this day to celebrate. I think I'm gonna be too tired.
May 16: Women in Business luncheon.
May 16-18: One or more of these days will hold a birthday party of sorts with family, probably a date with bf, and more time with friends, hopefully.
May 19: Boss's 40th birthday. My coworker and I are planning a wicked surprise for him. Tee hee. (Wicked = cool, not mean.)
May 21: Industrial testing for local national park rangers.
May 22: Industrial testing for same local national park rangers.
May 23-26: Memorial Day weekend - could entail a trip to Vernal with my mom (I don't know what her plans are), BBQ/camping at home, or the normal weekend activities of date with bf, friends, family, church, etc.
May 29: Coworker's birthday. No, I'm not going to tell you how old she'll be.
I think that's it. I may have forgotten some things (I forgot Mother's Day on my first draft), but you get the idea...I'm gonna be busy in May.
On top of all this, I've decided to buy a condo and will be settling all the details for the purchase and possibly moving during this month. The seller and I have agreed on a price and tomorrow I'm meeting with my lender to fill out a loan application. If things go according to my agent's plans, everything could be finished, settled, and closed in time for me to move in at the end of the month. Don't ask me when I'll find the time, I'm not sure. If the deal goes through, I'll post pictures of the condo as soon as I take pictures of it. That could be next week or next year, so don't hold your breath. :)
Also, Anthony and I are planning on getting together at least once every week for FHE (family home evening, in case you are unfamiliar with this acronym). It's a long story that I'm not going to tell, and I don't want you to read too much into it. We aren't engaged, and this weekend I made darn sure he knew that I don't think either of us are ready to be engaged. Really, we just decided to get together to read the scriptures since he struggles with understanding them, then he suggested that we turn it into FHE while we were at it, so we're also going to eat dessert and have an activity (movie, games, walk to the softball park, etc.). I think it will be good for both of us.
Honestly, I'm not really dreading May, it just makes me tired thinking of everything that is coming up. There are actually some really good things happening that I'm excited about, so I'm sure it will all be very enjoyable (except the CDL test) and I'll finish May with lots of good, happy memories.
How's that for positive thinking??? :)
