Pre-Mid-Life Crisis

I pretty sure I'm having a pre-mid-life crisis and as much as I try to talk myself into staying calm, approaching "single at thirty" often freaks me out. I can't really wrap my mind around it.

Here's my latest freak-out: Until about 2 years ago, when asked about my marital status, replying "single" was sufficient. But over time, I've had to adjust my response to "single, never married."

When I did I get old enough to have to add the "never married"? Is it so expected that someone of my advanced age must have had at least a brief stint of marriage? I guess this is just the beginning of other life changes, like wrinkle cream and marking the 30-40 age group box on surveys!

With some of my freak-outs, I cry, but with this one, I choose laughter! Join me, won't you?

One Year

Tomorrow, October 28th, is my one year anniversary at my current job. To celebrate, I'm making sausage cream cheese swirls and a co-worker is making homemade peanut butter ice cream. We love parties at my office!!!

God literally dropped this job in my lap last year and it's a blessing to get along with my co-workers and to like my job (on most days!).

Though this last year has been filled with some major ups and downs, I'm glad to be able to celebrate the blessings instead of focusing on the rough patches.

So, happy one year anniversary to me!

Somewhere Out There

One of my favorite movies as a child in 1986 was An American Tail starring Fyvel, a lonely mouse, separated from his family. Who knew that 24 years later, the theme song to that movie, would be the theme song to my love life?

As I see the most beautiful moon tonight, my prayers are for my someone I haven't met yet. Somewhere out there, whoever you are, I'm praying for you...waiting for you...and loving you tonight...

Somewhere Out There

Somewhere out there beneath the pale moonlight
Someone's thinking of me and loving me tonight

Somewhere out there someone's saying a prayer
That we'll find one another in that big somewhere out there

And even though I know how very far apart we are
It helps to think we might be wishing on the same bright star

And when the night wind starts to sing a lonesome lullaby
It helps to think we're sleeping underneath the same big sky

Somewhere out there if love can see us through
Then we'll be together somewhere out there
Out where dreams come true...

Momma's Love

Shared a delicious Momma's Love tonight with my "Moma love"! I've tried several sandwiches at Momma Goldberg's before, but this was my fav!

Not only did Momma's Love make it on my list, but it was named one of the Top 100 Things to Eat in Alabama Before You Die....only 99 more to go, I guess!

Long see!

Well, I've removed myself from the world of Facebook, so I hope I will now have more time to focus on my blog!

I realized, I should have named my blog "Katy's Kitchen" because I bet most of my posts will be cooking related!

Last night I made Chocolate Chip Popcorn Bars and took have of the batch to work (they were a hit!) and served the other half at my BSF fellowship tonight. These bars combine chocolate, cookies and marshmallows--what could be better!?!?
