Wow it has seriously been an extremtly long time since I have been on here. I'm going to try and start updating this more often since I kind of feel like I might be in an interesting part of my life. But before we get to that let me see if I can get your caught up on what has happened over the last year.
I just moved out and into my first apartment earlier this month. I know... I know... I know... It's about time right? My mom has always said I do things my own way and at my own pace. I guess I just wanted to make sure that she was ok, the last few years had been really tough on her. But she is doing so well now. So I made the huge leap and Nikita and I are enjoying our own space. I never thought that I would enjoy it as much as I have. The freedom and the space has been amazing and a little liberating. I have really enjoyed decorating it, while there is still a ton of stuff that I need to get, it is really starting to feel like home.
My brothers are doing really well. Mac is in the process of resigning with the Air Force. He truely loves it and I have to say that at times I'm really jealous that he has found something to do everyday that he loves. There are so many people in the world that can not say that. I may be ones of those. He was a little disapointed that he didn't get called up on the last deployment but my mom and I are both happy that he is home and safe. Jarrett is doing so well in school. He spends so much time studying and I'm so proud to say that it is really paying off for him. He actually just got a 92% on a huge test! I know that one day he is going to be an amazing doctor. My mom is doing really well and I'm beyond proud of her. She actually just joined a bible study at church and I'm hoping that her faith is starting to return to her. She has been working on redoing several of the rooms in her house and they are looking so great. The bigget project is redoing all the wood in the rooms and staining them.
On a heavier note I lost my grandmother in July. It has to be the hardest thing that I have gone through in my 26 years. In the last few years I didn't get to spend as much time with her as I would have liked to. She was a very special women and I know that no matter what I will always be her little princess. What has helped the most is that I know I will see her again one day and I know that she is looking down on me and guiding me through some of my tougher days. She will forever have a special place in my heart!
Other than those few things, things are pretty much the same. Work is still work and I still wonder if it is the place for me and if it's where my calling really is. My friends are still the most amazing women I know. I feel so unworthy of them many days. They really are the best "cheerleaders" that I could ask for and give some of the best pep talks a girl could ask for. The best part has been watching their kids grow up so quickly, I really want to make them stop. However hearing them say Tegan or Auntie Tegan is way cooler than I thought that it could ever be. My family is growing again this year. Last July we got to welcome baby Liam into this world and I have to say he is one of the cutest McCall grandkids out there. And we are waiting for baby Henry to get here in June!
Well that is it for now. Keep checking back here as I will be updating this more frequently than I have the last year.
Bye for now!
