Holy September Batman!

This month... just... crazy.

The play I was in.

Finding a roommate.

Then losing a roommate.

Then getting an apartment on my own.

Getting my roommate back and possibly a house.

Then both of those going away.

And I'm moving this weekend.

I started babysitting a six year old every afternoon.

There is also the normal crazy that happens all through life. I also watched all of season 3 of The Vampire Diaries this month. It's been intense, let me tell you.When this whole apartment switch is done I'm taking a nap.

In the meantime, here is the music that has been getting me through September.

Just Keep Writing...

Hello, friends! When Brittany had a calling for guest bloggers I jumped right in! I have been taking a bit of a break from guest blogging lately, but I'm so excited to be back in. Feel free to stop by my blog or to contact me anytime. I love making new friends!

What motivated you to start blogging?

For me it's never been a question of "why" I blog. More like, "Why not?" I've been writing my entire life. It's simply part of who I am. My first "blog" was through a site called Xanga and I used it as a way to keep in touch with people when I went off to college. Then Facebook came around and I started using their notes feature in place of Xanga, but a few years ago I decided to have an official blog and that's how Love Woke Me Up This Morning started!

Want to read more of this post? I'm guest blogging over at Delightfully Awkward today! (In case you hadn't figured that out from my first paragraph.)

Oh Look At That- I'm Versatile

One of my newest blog friends nominated me!

Thanks so much Brittany! You can check out her blog at This Beautiful Life.


My goodness there are a lot of awards floating around the blog world.

However, I don't really mind. It shows how supportive the blog world is and it helps you to get your name out there, but also other bloggers too.

So, here we go.

So... That Didn't Work Out as Planned

LIFE OF MEGWarning: This is kind of a long story. So grab a cup of coffee (or your beverage of choice), get comfortable, and enjoy.
It's amazing how quickly plans can change.

One moment you're doing one thing, the next it's completely different. Then another minute later that plan gets turned on it's head and a few hours later you're driving up to a leasing office and signing the application for a one bedroom apartment.

Yup. My living situation has changed yet again. Twice. Maybe three times.

In case you missed it, check out my last post on this subject. Let's just say that the title of that post was quite accurate (Jinx) because I was so excited I ended up jinxing myself.

Fridays Letters


Dear Starbucks, thank you for Pumpkin Spice Lattes and Salted Caramel Mochas. Whoever invented them needs to get a medal.

Dear Leslie, thanks for lunch last week. I needed it. I miss our girl time. 

Dear Ginny, feel free to steal my internet anytime you want. It's nice to have someone around more often. I"m so glad you're back!

Dear Charter, why do you hate me? Seriously. Glee is my favorite show and you just HAD to have issues with my connection during the season premiere. WHY WHY WHY? I can't wait until I don't have to use you anymore.

Dear National Youth Gathering, thank you for FINALLY getting me the pre-registration materials. They were crazy late, but at least they are here now.

Dear Apartment People, I know I've gone back and forth like crazy about my living situation. But you've been patient and understanding - I'm so blessed! Thank you! (And yes, blog friends, there WILL be another update on this soon. 'Cause plans have changed... again.)

Dear Partners in Ministry Group, While 1/2 of our little group has left over the summer, it was great to see new faces yesterday and it was so fun to be able to get together again! Here's to another year of supporting each other in ministry!

Dear SEMO Fair, I'm glad you'll be gone tomorrow. Life is far too complicated when you're in town.

Dear Cast and Directors of The Smell of the Kill, we're gonna ROCK THIS PLAY tonight! It has been so much fun working with all of you and how we've become like a little family. We get on each others nerves and get frustrated, but in the end we still love each other.

Points of Impact

"The moment of impact. The moment of impact proves potential for change. Has ripple effects far beyond what we can predict.Sending some particles crashing together. Making them closer than before. While sending others spinning off into great ventures. Landing them where you've never thought you've found them. That's the big thing about moments like these. You can't, no matter how hard you try, controlling how it's gonna affect you. You just gotta let the colliding parts go where they may. And wait. For the next collision."

This past weekend I received in my mailbox The Vow from the glorious Netflix. (Don't judge. I like sappy movies. Get over it. Also, Channing Tatum is in it.) One of the big themes in this movie is "points of impact."

Previously, on Love Woke Me Up This Morning... (said in an awesome TV voice)

My former roommate lost her job and moved out - taking her two cats with her. Which left me  roommate-less and several hundred dollars poorer.

I searched far and wide for the perfect person to be my next roommate.

I even repainted the room so it would be nice and shiny and clean for whoever this person would be.

However, all that my searching led to were recovering alcoholics with eleven year old sons, divorcees who backed out, and an insurmountable of supposed "international students" who would "send me their deposit" in the mail.

I then began the hunt for a new home. One that would be less expensive.

This too failed me. The only places that I would be able to afford either would not allow me to have pets or were in a place where I would fear for my life.

The months went by and my worries rose as I saw the number in my bank account dwindle.
