I Did It!

I can not believe it. I actually did it. I officially have 9 college credits. While that may not seem like a lot, I can check the some college button on surveys :). I don't know how I got everything finished, but I did. I am so glad it is over. That is over for 3 weeks. Then it is off to school I go again. This time I am taking A&P I & II on campus, and Public Speaking online. Yup, believe it or not, you can take Public Speaking online. That should be easier than standing in front of a whole class picturing them all in their underwear so I don't freak out! STAY TUNNED> I GET MY FINAL GRADES SOON! Wish me luck!

Here a Move There a Move

Here a move there a move, everywhere a move, move. That seems to be the theme for this month. My sister's house sold, and she is moving in with my mom. We just moved in with my mom, and now my mom might be moving. It all almost feels like a game of musical chairs, but with houses. I swear I never want to look at another box as long as I live. I am so tired of moving, packing, cleaning, and dragging stuff, that I could actually be sick to my stomach. The good thing is we might have my mom's house sold, ( which is in really poor condition), and found a nice older house for her, but it has been all remodeled inside, and has a nice big private yard. Today we will find out the specifics, and an offer will be written on it, and on this house. I wish she could have gotten more for this house, but it just didn't happen. Keep your fingers crossed that it all works out for the best!

A Star in the Family

I am so proud to announce we have a star in the family. Miss Paige is going to be Anne Frank in the play Anne Frank. She will be the star of the show! She found out tonight she got the part. She will be performing at a local theater company. I guess she gets it from her dad. When he was in school his nickname was "Mr Showbiz". Now we have a "Ms. Showbiz" in the family. She is so excited and I am so happy for her. I can't wait to see her perform.

Allergies & Breathing Treatments

Poor Abigail is having a hard time with her allergies. Yesterday her eyes were swollen and red and she coughed and sneezed all day. After she took her allergy medicine she seemed to be better. But when we got up this morning she was wheezing something terrible. I had to take her to the Doctor. They gave her a breathing treatment and prednisone. Now for the next 10 days she will take prednisone, and breathing treatments 3 times a day plus her regular allergy medicine. I think it is from all the dust and stuff here. We have been cleaning out everything everywhere and stiring a lot of it up. Once school is finished I am going to scrub everything clean. There is something here that she is allergic too. Hopefully once we are all finished she won't be bothered anymore.

Dinner and a Move

I worked all day and still did not finish packing and cleaning. Hubby had to finish up what was left tonight. I won't be going back to the old house. I am at my mom's now, and hopefully we can get my bed up soon. Me and the babies are sleeping on the couch. Once my bed is up, they will sleep with me. Which should be fun, since Ms Abby likes to kick and Little Daniel likes to roll :). Oh well, it is what it is. I really don't want to chat much about it right now. We did have a good evening though. Hubby barbecued, and boy does he do a wonderful job. He did chicken and ribs. They were awesome! Once again I find it is almost 230 in the morning and I'm not even in my PJ's yet. I wonder how long someone can go without sleep and still be sane. I guess I should find out pretty soon :). YAWN......... Speaking of sleep, guess it is time for me to hit the hay.


Grade Update

Well I cried on the first algebra proctored test I took because I got a 78. I got my grade for my second one, and it was a 95 :). Again I cried, but because I was so HAPPY! Now wish me luck, because I am taking a 3rd one tomorrow. I need a high grade to buffer the first test, and because I still have to take a final exam too. My 1st English essay I got a 92, which I will gladly accept, and still waiting for my grade on the 2nd one. Now I am working on a 3rd and 4th paper. Now in Psych I got a 120 out of 150 on my exam. OMG it was hard. I was pretty upset that I missed so many. I don't know how I could have studied any better for it either. BUT>.> I did get a 97 on my essay for PSYCH. I am thrilled over that. BUT again I still have a final and 2 more essays to write in there. It is coming down to the wire. I need to keep my grades up and not mess up right at the end. I only have 2 weeks left.

Changes & Moves

So much has happened since my last post. School as always is tons of work, but I am managing to hang on and complete everything so far. It is almost over and I can honestly say I am VERY happy about that. We did have a major event. We had to move. I have spent the last couple of days moving and packing. It has been one big headache that won't go away. Tomorrow we should have everything out, and I have to clean up the house. We put everything in storage and will be staying with my mom for awhile, until we get things figured out. Hubby's job has been tough and right now moving was the only decision we could make. Hopefully things will get better. I am trying to keep a positive outlook. Things can always be worse. So for now I am going to kick around a few boxes to get to the bed. I am completely worn out. I did manage to get my draft finished for my 2000 word essay and even take a mid term test in Psychology. Tomorrow I have to take a quiz and study for another mid term in algebra. I guess where there is a will there is a way. I really don't know how I finished everything. There is a lot to be said about no sleep and all work. It makes you really tired and cranky. Not to mention you look like crap. My eyes are permanently puffy and the dark circles make me look like a raccoon. Oh well, no one said life was easy. Sweet dreams all.

Gee it is only 3 a.m. and I finally get to go to bed. Last night I stayed up all night. I did not get to bed until 6 a.m. I had to finish a paper for psychology tonight, and last night it was English Comp. I don't even want to think about the 2000 word essay I have due this week. Plus the 2 mid terms I have, not to mention the other homework assignments. I am getting near the end of school and I guess they want us to go out with a bang. I haven't received my grade yet for my second Algebra test, but I am keeping my fingers crossed. I ended up with a 92 for my first English Comp. paper, and still waiting for the grade on the second paper. I can't believe how much you have to write in English. I now have to finish a 2000 word argumentative essay, and then still one more before it is over.... UGH.. Now you understand why I haven't been around my blog lately. My words have been used almost up on English papers :). I have a lot going on besides school too. I don't even want to talk about any of it. Later I will probably vent about it, but now I just need to get through school, and take care of the kids. Well take care all. I gotta get some sleep. As my mother always says, " Morning comes early."

When It Rains It Pours

" When it rains it pours." I believe that is a good title for the week I have had. Earlier in the week my mom fell. She was alone and couldn't get up. Thank God I had called to check on her, and found out she she had fallen. My sister left work and met me there, and between the both of us we got her back up. God must have been watching out for her, because she didn't break any bones, or get cut. She is on Coumadin, so if she hits her head hard, or cuts herself she could bleed out. She did manage to hit her chin, and boy it left a terrible bruise. The bottom half of chin and mouth are still sore and bruised. To top that off I ended up in the emergency room at 3 a.m. July 4th. I swear I thought I was having a heart attack, and my back was killing me. I NEVER go to the ER. I have only been one other time to the ER and that time I ended up in emergency surgery. So you know if I went this time, it hurt really bad. Well to make a story short, I am at home, hence I didn't have a heart attack ;). They really don't know what was wrong. Maybe some sort of spasm in my chest and back. They gave me pain meds, which didn't work, but also gave me an anti-spasm med and that stopped the pain. So far it has not happened again. I hope it stays that way. With all that going on, I still have tons of homework, and have still been staying up almost all night to get it all finished. I will be so glad when it is over. BTW I got a 78 on my algebra test, and yes I cried all day about it. I have another test this week. Wish me luck. I really need to do good on it. Up until the test I had all A's. Go figure I do good then freak and mess up the test.
