Thank you!

The other day at school
Melissa and I walked into the main building at school to find a place to waste some time before class started.

As I walked through the front doors I saw a Marine standing just inside in his dress uniform. I have always felt that it is our duty to thank the servicemen and women of our wonderful country but have always been too much of a chicken to do so. Ever since Andy joined the Army I have felt even more grateful for their service because I know how difficult it is.

So, noticing that he was by himself I walked up to him and said, "I just wanted to thank you for serving our country. My brother is in the Army so I know that it is really difficult to be away from your family and friends. I just wanted you to know that I appreciate what you do."

In return he said that he appreciated my comment and told me, while looking me directly in the eye, "You're Welcome." I think it was the most sincere "you're welcome" that I have ever gotten. I hope that my simple comment made a difference in his day and maybe made him feel a little more appreciated!

7 Wierd things

Here is my 7 weird things:

7. I ALWAYS sing when in my car.

6. I love history and museums. My siblings hate them, but I take after my father and would much rather go there than shopping!

5. I work at a nursing home in the kitchen and I always end up talking to inanimate objects while I am working.

4. I prefer most anything vanilla over chocolate. I like chocolate candy bars, but prefer vanilla shakes, ice cream, or pudding.

3. I actually like to wash dishes!

2. I hate math but I am majoring in Accounting!

1. I can read Ancient Egyptian Hieroglyphics!

There you go - my list of 7. Hope you enjoyed them! If you haven't done this already I tag you!

Alright - here you guys go - a new post! I am sorry that I am not as addicted as the rest of you are to blogging. Some days I don't even go on the computer!

I have gotten in one full week of school already! I have great profs this semester. They are all more than willing to continue to go over something if one person in the class doesn't understand. I am enjoying all of my classes so far - computer, accounting 2, and business math. I also love it that I get out of class at 4:00, so I can be home by 5:00 and actually be able to eat dinner with my parents!

I bought a new coat a couple weeks ago. I found it at Kohls - it was normally $160, but was on sale for $70! I really love it. It is a dark brown peacoat with a hood. I will post pictures of it this weekend, I promise!
