Sweet, Sweet Goodbye....*

*....For a few days anyways! :)

I don't know how much blogging I'll be doing over the next couple weeks --- after today, I have a 4-hour workday on Wednesday, then I'm on vacation for a week and a half! (Yes, I'm oober excited!)

I am going to Texas with my brother, where I will be meeting the rest of his biological family for the first time. He has been down there to visit them once before, but he asked me if I'd like to come along this time - of course I said yes!

As you know, if you've read my post titled: "I Grew In Her Tummy", I am adopted. Shortly after I started looking for my biological mother, my brother decided he would try to find his as well. and he did - about a month after I found mine.

He had a Christian heritage - a strong, Christian heritage. His "mother" was young when she had him, and since she was not married, she thought it best that her baby be raised in a home that had a mom AND a dad. So she gave him up for adoption. And I'm so glad she did - because that made it possible for him to be my brother! :)

So anyways, I'm going to Texas -- and I'm looking forward to it verrryyyyy much! My life has been non-stop since last August.... (here's a little peek):
This is a schedule of my daily, weekly, monthly life! haha! Mind you, it's a 45 minute drive (one way) from my house (or work) to church.
Sunday: Choir practice (9:15-9:30), Sunday School (9:45-10:30), Morning Service (10:45-12:00-ish), Teach 5 piano lessons (12:15-3:00-ish), Choir practice (4:30-5:30), Evening Service (6:00-7:30-ish), Music and Sound-check practice (7:45-8:80-ish)
Monday: Work (7:30-4:30), 1-hr Dinner relaxation, Homework (5:45-??)
Tueday: Work (7:30-4:30), 1-hr Dinner relaxation, Homework (5:45-??)
Wednesday: Class (8:00-1:30), Work (2:00-6:00), Church (7:00-8:30), Homework (9:30-??)
Thursday: Work (7:30-4:30), 1-hr Dinner relaxation, Homework (5:45-??)
Friday: Work (7:30-4:30), 1-hr Dinner relaxation, Homework (5:45-??)
Saturday: Piano Students (10:30-11:45-ish), Homework (3:00-??)
.....And then it starts all over again.....
BUT NOT ANYMORE...!! Because school is out for the summer! yay! :) :)

Tonight I am going out to dinner and then bowling with some friends! And then tomorrow I have a 4-hr workday! Pack. Board the plane Thursday morning, and enjoy sweet vacation untill 28-May-09! I turn 21 on 24-May-09! (which is no big deal really... it's just another number... another year older... but I'm still excited!) On 29-May-09 I'm planning on going to hear Legacy 5 at a Southern Gospel concert with some of my friends from church! And then on 30-May-09 I'll probably hang out with my BFF! :)

Yes, I'm greatly looking forward to the next 2 weeks! I return to work on 1-Jun-09. *gahhhh...!* But I don't want to think about that right now. haha!

So anyways, I said ALL that to say that I probably won't get a chance to blog much while I'm on vacation... I might get a chance to post something either today or tomorrow.... if not.... adiós. ¡véale más adelante! (that's "Goodbye. See you later!" in Spanish!) :)


  1. Sweetie, I am so excited for you, hope you enjoy your vacation with your brother. Have a very happy birthday.

  2. Heather,

    Two of our children are adopted and we, too are very thankful for their parents decisions...otherwise they would not be in our lives.
    Hope you have a wonderful trip.

  3. Yayyy! Enjoy your vacation. That sched. of yours looks so hectic, you truly deserve one long vacation!
    Praying for your safe trip with your brother and may God's love wrap all of you and his biological family.
    That's okay if you won't be able to post for a while but we'll be looking forward to hear about your adventures! God bless and take care sister Heather! No abla Espanol :)

  4. Aw, I am going to miss you :( have fun in Texas and bring back a cowboy hat LOL.. okay, that was pretty biased but let me know how their steaks taste ;)

  5. I will miss you all too!
    The last time my brother went to TX he came home wearing a cowboy hat.... you cannot imagine how weird and EXTREMELY white guy looks walking around Detroit and driving a yellow sportscar wearing a cowboy hat. so odd.

    I already have a pair of Steve Madden Cowgirl Boots (favorites!!)... and I'm pretty much in love with John Wayne and Clint Eastwood... so maybe I'll come back with a horse. ;) (kidding....)

    Yummm-ooo steak! Huge fan of steak! :D

  6. Enjoy your vacation! I had missed your post about being adopted. I'm an adoptive mom, and have a blog about fostering and adoption, Finding Startfish. I hope you'll stop by sometime!

  7. That is very exciting! I pray you have a great time and that the visit goes great for your brother!


  8. Awesome! I pray safe travels for you both and an blessed visit.


Thank you for visiting my blog! ;)
My prayer is to be a blessing and an encouragement to each one that stops by!

I am Elizabeth Bennet of Pride & Prejudice! I am intelligent, witty, and tremendously attractive. I have a good head on my shoulders, and oftentimes find myself the lone beacon of reason in a sea of ridiculousness. I take great pleasure in many things. I am proficient in nearly all of them, though I will never own it. Lest I seem too perfect, I have a tendency toward prejudgement that serves me very ill indeed.
