It's Finally Friday

Hey, all my loyal readers (and guests!) thanks for stopping by on this rainy-ish Friday. This week was a busy one around the Random House. I started back to school on Monday with my Chemistry class. it's sort of a do over but more of a do different. It's the chem I need for nursing school, but they have revamped all the Chem classes and renamed them. This one is more basic and geared directly towards those going into an Allied Health field. Should make it a bit easier (for me anyway). The teacher seems cool. I'll keep you posted.

I also have Microbes and Society. Or is it Microbes IN Society? either way, it's kind of like a continuation of Microbiology, which I loved (let's not talk about having to take it twice) so it should be pretty cool as well.

And to round things out, I have Non Western Literature. The first book we have to read is "Red Sorgum" by Mo Yan. I haven't started it yet (shh, don't tell the teacher) because I'm currently reading "The 19th Wife" but I plan to start it this weekend.

All in all, the classes are going smooth and slow. I'm sure in a few weeks I'll be freaking out about something, but right now it's all good.

My kids start backto school on Monday. Jazz is in 5th grade, Lyric is 9th. High school that is. I'm feeling a little better about it. I can't stop time so I figured I better just jump in with both feet and enjoy it. Jazz is in the band and Lyric is planning to be in the fresh/soph fall play. They are both in Girl Scouts and dance. And that's about enough on my (our) plate for this fall.

I put the "New Moon" trailer up at the top of the page. I also tried to put up the "Californication" trailer/teaser, but I don't know that it is working right.

For those of you that don't know- Rick Springfield will be doing a guest appearance (4 episodes) on "Californication" this season. It's on Showtime, so I won't get to see it right away, but I will for sure be buying the DVD next summer.

That's all I got for now...stay tuned for more fun stuff.

Can't wait to see Rick on Californication. Watching the rest of the 1st and 2nd season on DVD is on the top of my list of things to do when the kids go back to school.
Also looking forward to New Moon. A couple friends and I are talking about going to the midnight showing for the fun of it!

Good luck with school this semester!

Good luck with school! How do you balance being a mommy and a student at the same time?

Following you via MBC! (And yes...I love me some Rick Springfield too!)
