Continuing my education.

I am half way thru in getting my associates degree and then I have another round to go to get my bachelors degree. I am getting burned out but I keep thinking about the end results.

1) I will be able to get a better job
2) Prove to my children you are never too old to learn
3) Accomplishing a goal that I made for myself years ago, to go back to school.

Strep....the gift that keeps on giving.

Ok, so this past weekend was our annual get together to our Christmas with the sisters and extended family.

Well as of now there are eight of us that have come down with strep throat. It's not like my sister had only one glass and fork for all 30 of us to share. But there was plenty of dip (I am sure there was double dipping going on) and passing of glasses with a new drink to try. Our family likes to share the love. I wonder what illness will be in store for next year. I am already preparing for next year. I have purchased gas mask and immune boosting drugs for my family. I may even get prescription's for antibiotic's ahead of time.

Annual trip to WisCOLDsin!

This weekend my family and I will be loading up the Tahoe and driving 500 miles to spend Christmas with my sister's and their families. I am looking forward to being together, drinking new drinks and playing our traditional game of guys vs girls Trivial Pursuit, it is a good time. Here's what I am NOT looking forward to: the COLD ass weather and being stuck in a vehicle for 7 hours with my husband and two children (I ususally read a book which bugs my hubby, you'd think he would enjoy me not talking to him for 7 hrs and the boys' watch a movie or play games).

I have no clue what got into me today, but I decided it was time to clean out my closet and vacuum under my bed (moving this bed is no small task)! I guess cuz I just did it with my boy's. I ended up with two bags to send to Goodwill and a bag to trash! I also decided since I was at it I would move out my dresser and vacuum behind it!!! I found dust bunnies bigger than Lincoln!!! Ewww! Now, I am not the kind of person that has a messy house, I just tend to forget about certain areas! I think I am going to try and remember to clean these areas more! I do feel like I have accomplished quite a bit today!!

Getting a jump on 2009 holiday shopping!

I have decided that I am going to do all of my Christmas shopping throughout the year! I have already started (now let's hope I don't forget what I bought and where I put it). I got a great deal on a winter coat for Jace for next year and I have even bought next years school clothes for the boy's!!!! Of course I bought a nice pair of Born clogs and a Fossil purse for myself, after all I was the one doing all of the work! I LOVE a good sale!
