My name Is Michel, I am a full time student majoring in education, a full time wife to my airman, and a full time mother to our two fur babies for now! I am a southern girl at heart and proud of it. I enjoy just about any outdoor activities, and love basketball. Coffee is definitely my weakness, especially here in the North West. I adore my husband and our family. We miss them much but enjoy our life in the Air Force.

My Airman, a lovable, caring, sweet, car loving, hardheaded man! : ) but he is my world. He is a boom operator in the Air Force and so far he loves his job. When he isn’t working he is probably working on his car, or on the internet finding things for his car. He is crazy, but you just can’t ask for a better husband.

Highschool sweathearts, that stuck together trough it all and ended up falling head over heels for each other. Married on November 23, 2009 and loving our wild and crazy life as two southerners living in the Northwest!

school = stress

Lately I have been so stressed. With working full time, and going to school full time has really been kicking my ass. I have always attended school and worked at the same time, but not this much. I am a full time student, which this semester means 5 classes only because I want to get my full finical aid. This is supposed to be my last semester, but it really does not look like it is going to be this way. One of my classes, my book was two weeks late arriving in the mail, so I missed two assignments, and in my other classes I have been just slacking. I forget all the time that I am on a different time zone then my classes or on, so when things are due at 8 PM it is due at 5 PM here and I totally don't realize this till after the deadline. Two days ago i get an email from my teacher saying that the test we are having, Which would be open for two days ( Thursday and Friday)and it will have to be proctored and that our proctors have the password. Well this is horrible for me because I didn't get this email till Thursday morning and my proctor only test on Thursdays at 8AM and of course I would be at work then and Friday she doesn't even come in. So otherwise I watched myself get a big fat ZERO yesterday on a test that I had no control over. So with all this being said I am really tired of school and sometimes I begin to think WHY? Why am I trying so hard to get my degree, when I have a good paying job that I will move up on and will more than likely end up paying me better than any job I get with my degree. Then I remember that I know I will not always have this job and wont be so lucky next time when looking for a job.
So with this being said, I basically believe that I am not going to finish this semester and I will be taking a couple classes over next semester. BOO! Someone HELP me. : ) ha.

Also, Joe is doing well over there, i believe anyways. I haven't really talked to him in like 3 days because he schedule is really crappy and he is flying when I am awake and asleep when I am awake. I get a FB message ever now and then. IT sucks because I could really use his support in times like this. But I wont get into all this on here.
