It's been a while!

Hey guys! I know, I know, I haven't blogged in forever! The main reason is because my laptop doesn't work anymore :( it wont turn on. And I never come upstairs and use this computer..but for now it's all I've got! I miss writing and checking back every five minutes to see if i have any comments or new followers! It's a lot of fun :) I need to get back into it!

Well summer is sadly coming to an end. It's still nice warm weather but school has begun! School for me will start next Tuesday. I'm super excited actually. Im looking forward to going back and learning! I feel like my brain is turing to mush. I. Need. School. Neverrrr thought I'd ever say that!! Hopefully I will get more classes next semester and be able to transfer from Delta soon. I want to go somewhere by the beach like San Diego :) Sounds lovely! Getting out of Lodi for a while sounds really nice and refreshing. My mom wants me to go to William Jessup in Rocklin and I have thought about that but the ocean is calling my name :) Studying on the beach? Check yes.

A lot has changed around here! We have two new brothers now. Carson and John are finally here. And let me just say, whoa. Not what I expected at all but in all honesty I don't know what I expected. I think I just thought they'd come here, act like normal, well behaved kids. Learn English quickly, and we'd go on with our lives just like before. No. Not quite! It is very interesting having them here. I;m not exactly sure how to describe it. John is sweet, he can be caring and compassionate. I haven't spent any great amount of time with either of them. I mean, when I'm home they're here obviously. But they are on strict, structured schedules so they are doing something. They always make sure to say hi and good bye to me when I leave or come home. And they really like to hug. I understand they like to be loved but you can't just haaang on me, I mean, I need my space. I like my space. lol Carson is different. He acts a lot younger  like 3ish. Kinda just waddles around mumbling weird things and making noises. But hey, they've got a house to live in, brothers and sisters to play with, and loving paretns who are doing everything they can to make their lives better. :)

I've gotta go pick up Emily from school now, we're going shopping :) Sorry it took me so long! I'll try to blog again soon :)

Lip gloss & Nail Polish, Ashhhh <3


  1. Is it actually possible to STUDY on the BEACH? :D

  2. No Dawn, it is not possible lol...that is why I am against her going to study anywhere near the ocean because there will be NO studying lol....I know her, and I know that it will be all about sunblock and boys ;) hey ash, a new one for ya ;)

  3. YAY! another post from Ashley!!
    Keep blogging, Ashley - you're a great writer.
    College needs to be about studying, dear one.....
    On THIS ONE I'm in complete agreement w/ you mom! :)
    No matter where you go to college next year, it will be a FUN experience because you are a FUN individual, right??? xxBoots

  4. Ashley, I am a big fan of your blog. I am 67 years old, and I. Need. School. (Just so you don't think you're going to outgrow it ...) I am enrolled in an ongoing prophecy class, and it just goes to show that even if you think you know a lot about the Bible, for instance, there is always more to learn. I think it keeps me young. Well, maybe just alert ... Keep up the blog and keep up the good work. I have a feeling you will go far in life ... :)
    Joy and blessings,

  5. Thanks Rosemary, that means a lot :) that's awesome that you're still learning :) inspiration!!

  6. Hi Ashley, Thanks for remembering to post for us. And like Rosemary I.Need.School. as well and I am nearly 69. Let me tell you from experience your mom is probably right and not much studying happens at the beach. Also though once you are at the beach it becomes normal and you don't notice it like you think you would. I live in a small town here in West Australia which is on the edge of the Indian Ocean. If you google Margaret River, Perth, or my place Busselton you can see. After awhile you forget you live on the beach. Live just goes on as normal. And as far as needing school I am studying via correspondence at a Bible College to obtain a Certificate in Biblical Studies. Gee, I didn't think I would be taking exams in my 60's but it does keep you young. And I am eagerly awaiting delivery of an IPad2. Most of my peers don't even know what one is let alone own one. Keeping up with technology and reading blogs like yours keeps you young.

    I know that God will lead you to the right place for school. Just listen for his guidance. You are going to be a mighty woman of God and He really has a perfect plan just for your life.


  7. Great post Ashley! My son Tim is also seeking God's guidance about university - he wants to go to Cambridge, UK but his second choices are USA universities (MIT, Yale, Harvard) Good that you are both trusting HIM for your futures! KEEP BLOGGING!!
