Good things, bad things, red things, black things....

That was pretty funny! I'm no Dr. Suess, though. Good things: Sahara Aldridge is back home, My husband is almost home from his fishing trip, got my car back last week, the kids are healthy. Bad things: received word last week about a 12 year old boy with a brain tumor (sounds similar to Sahara's), cell phones and water don't mix, car is still over heating, have another A & P test this week. Red things: devil horns...for those of you that were at the Joliet, IL Rick Springfield show, this is for you, Black, hmm, I can't think of anything....that's a good thing, right?!?

Things are trucking right along around here. A & P is more than half over....YEAH...we have another test this week..NAY....It's actually going pretty well....but I'm not sure that I will walk away with an A, I'm shooting for it though. Algebra is going okay. We're doing some stuff that is a little complicated, and I can't apply it to real world stuff, but still, overall, going well.

Have you started your Christmas shopping yet?!? Not me. Well, actually I have bought a couple of things, and I do have some ideas, but no productive shopping yet. Honestly, that may not happen until 12/15. (that's when I'm done with finals). Could make it interesting, unless I mail order stuff, then I could get it done sooner.

Anyway, back to work, school, housework, etc, etc, with a little entertainment thrown in for good measure (GREY'S ANATOMY ROCKS)

Til next time~

Where oh where has Amy been....?

I've been working, studying, getting my car worked on and learning how to properly install car seats! I spent four days in training to become a child protection seat technician. It was a lot of lecture, some hands on, a test and culminated with a car seat safety check on Saturday. There were 15 of us in the class. It was an interesting 4 days. I don't think I've ever spent that much time in the company of policemen. (which was like half the class). I did figure out though, that they are mostly 10 year old boys in big boy bodies! Goofing around, teasing, snapping sarcastic remarks. It was a hoot.

While I was doing that, I still had to go to school, and take notes on stuff that I won't be tested on for two weeks, while still trying to retain the stuff from 2 weeks ago that I will be tested on this week. Are you confused yet? Yeah, me too! :)

Going to basketball draft tonight with the little one, while Han (that's what she likes to be called now) goes to Girl Scouts. Then I have to get serious about the studying for this week's test in
A & P. Lots of short answer (which are not so short) and diagrams. Busy, busy, busy....

C Ya Soon!

Aim :-)
