Jon and I had school today and it was pretty fun, my alarm went off at 6 this morning in my beginning of the school year desire to "be better" I decided that I was going to get up at 6 every morning and run on the treadmill and then get ready for school. Guess who wasn't about to get up at six this morning? Yeah, you guessed it, me! I hadn't even gone to bed super late last night but when that alarm went off I hit snooze three consecutive times. And then when it was either get up, shower, and do my hair I decided that sleep was much more important and slept for another ten minutes. Attempted to get up at 6... actually got up at 6:45... and those forty five minutes of extra sleep did wonders!! Jon and I had a VERY FULL day! We were at the school from 8 this morning til 5 this afternoon, after classes were done, we went over to my Grandma Salazar's house to pull weeds for her, but when we got there my cousin Rocky told us not to worry about it and that he would take care of it. So we went in and chatted with Grandma, Aunt Gail, and Uncle Richard. It was so good to see my Uncle Richard again! I have always felt somewhat closer to him than my other uncles and I really enjoy talking to him and spending time with him, so it was like an extra treat to see him! Grandma is doing ok, she is getting up there in years with the fact that she'll be 96 years old in like 2 weeks, and so her body is worn and definitely used, but her mind is so sharp still! She's an amazing woman, with amazing stories and experiences, and one day I want to be just like her! She's been the only grandparent I've had as her husband, my grandpa, and my maternal grandpa died before I was born and my maternal grandmother lived on the other side of the world until I was seven. So whenever the conversation was about grandparents, I thought about her. She has led an incredible life and I only hope that she'll live long enough for me to hear all her stories and for her to at least see some of my children.
After Jon and I were married, because his parents had divorced and his dad remarried he had another set of grandparents and so as of March of this year I went from having one grandma to having three and having two grandpa's! This excited me almost as much as the wedding! My kids will have grandparents who will love them and spoil them! Our children are going to be *hopefully* the first great grandchildren for Jon's side of the family! (And if people are thinking that this is a "hint" think again! Cause it's not!!)
All in all, today was a good day! And even though these next couple of months are going to be hectic... they are going to be fun!
