Holy Crap! I need a Time-Turner!

So a couple of weeks ago I joined Pinterest.com and had a goal to make some new, fun recipes and share them in a blog post. Then I spent all my time working, studying, and watching True Blood and now I am hooked on Greys Anatomy (thanks Cari). Next time she bothers me about blogging I am going to blame it on her for telling me about this show.

Not much ha happened and at the same time so much has! I do not know where to begin. Some top secret stuff, family stuff, future stuff, and just about crazy stuff.

Anchorage is about to beat the record for most snowfall ever! Who would have though the year I move here I would witness a record? Also Zeke is kinda mad at me, he doesn't like the snow. Everyone here is baffled by all the snow this year and oddly enough in this part of Alaska people are surprised and do not know what to do with the snow. How do you live in Alaska and not know what to do with snow?

So a girl named Smantha Koenig who works at a coffee hut in Anchorage was abducted a month ago by an armed man and APD still does not have any leads. In New York this kind of stuff would happen all the time and it is sad that it does not become big news. There are people with reward fliers taped to their car windows. Although the whole thing is super scary it comforts me that her family has so much support, including donations to help raise the reward money for her safe return. This has scared everyone and with the talks of putting strict federal laws on gun ownership or gun purchasing I have purchased a handgun. I am so happy Alaska is a open carry state, because nothing says don't mess with this girl with a gun strapped to her hip.

School is expensive, especially when it is coming out of my pocket! These school bills are making me seriously think about alternatives to paying for school such as the military. I work with a national guard recruiter and there are some interesting benefits school wise that I could take advantage of. Another possible option however would be the air guard only because I could use credits toward my major from the technical school, which is not available in the national guard. All of this is still a thought and I haven't put much action into it yet.

If Obama continues to try to crush the military it may not work out at all. Hopefully his propositions of eliminating the commissaries and hiking up Tricare will not pass but those are some benefits that are the military's strong points in recruitments. Our military may be dwindling when we need it the most. Possibly soon in Syria?

Anyway I hope to post some Nikki approved recipes this weekend. I am sure Cari will remind me :).

I dedicate this post to Cari.

PS on this princess challenge, my favorite was the little mermaid then I changed my mind in early childhood to princess Aurora from the sleeping beauty. Ha!
