Catching up: Work, School, Flood, Birthday & more.

It feels like forever since I had a freakin' computer. So much has happened. I believe Mia is 2 months older than she was since my computer crashed. (which is still getting fixed by the way, Thank the Lord for my laptop!)

So Mia is about to be 6 months old on the 10th of April. Crazy how it's flying by. She's ready to crawl, although she's been crawling backwards for a few weeks now, she got 2 teeth in. My baby isn't a baby anymore :(
This is Mia when she was 4 months. Strong girl!

& These two are from her 5 month photos!

Okay about a month ago I signed up for school, met with an advisor, submitted my entry application at CCRI and now I'm am officially an matriculated student! I'm just taking my general education courses there and transferring to RIC after I get my associates degree at CCRI. I'm plan to major in Social Working.

I found a job at Dunkin Donuts, I absolutely dread working there again because I worked at two other Dunkin's for almost 3 years already. So I'm sick of donuts and making haha. But money is money and I need money so here I am working at Dunkin again. I'm working the night shift, so my usual hours are 5 to 12:30ish.

I met a boyyyy! His name is Michael and he is Christian just like me! We go to the same church, he's 21 and so so nice! He offered to change my hubcaps on my car! I think he's interested, but maybe I'm just reading the wrong signs haha.

Historical Flood hit RI last week. Basically my whole city was under water, it was horrific. I got water in my basement, but thank God we live on a hill, some people got it worse like 5-6 feet of water in their house. The mall here is under water, totally ruined. They estimated it will cost over 5 million to fix. It's crazy, the water dams almost broke! Here are a few of the millions of photos.

Some houses by the beaches. & One of the dams.

Colony Ford, a car dealership. Every car is under water.

 Inside the mall :(

Down the street from me. Crazy.


So it's been crazy over here in RI. This flood was declared historic and will be in the textbooks when our kids are older apparently. Those were just a few of the pictures from thousands. It's heartbreaking and scary. The highway even got shut down for like two or three days cause the River was overflowing Highway 95.

My Birthday was Thursday, April 1st! My mom told me I could go out and she would watch Mia all night, not that Mia gets up in the middle of the night anyways. So me and my friends went to the club! It was so much fun, except for the fact I could barely dance or even walk the whole time cause of the heels I was wearing. But next time I go I am going to wear flat shoes haha. I got home at 5 in the morning, and I suppose Mia heard us walk in cause she was in her crib waiting for me haha. So I never went to bed that night or morning. I had to be into work for 5 that day and I got out at 1am. It was crazy with no sleep but I had a good time!

Alrighty folks, Mia is calling my name so i'll catch you cats later!


  1. Omygosh! I had no idea you lived in RI! I'm glad you got a computer back & WOW has Mia grown!
    I've been waiting to hear back from a corporate CVS job I applied to in RI and they haven't made any decisions.
    Our whole computer systems were down last Tuesday at all the stores because of the flooding at the corporate office I guess.

    Glad you guys live up high. Good luck with school and work and juggling it all!

  2. Whoa, that's scary! I'm glad you and your family are okay. Mia has grown! And she's so cute! Good luck with juggling school and work.

    Oh, and you need to post a picture of this Michael. I want to know what he looks like!
