Lol. No classes yesterday or today >_<
Tons of snow and it's way too cold. I can't wait for spring and summer. I really hate this cold weather and I don't agree with Jess that the snow makes the cold worthwhile...>_<
I could live without both, and I really would rather being in a class right now....I hate being stuck at home too!
Can't wait for all this snow to melt and for it to get warmer.
And hope we have classes tomorrow.

This week:

Weeelll...started college on Tuesday. I'm taking Intro Algebra, Oral Communications, Marriage and Family, and English Comp. 1 on Tuesdays and Thursdays. I take Foundation Seminar and Intro to Fitness & Wellness on Mondays and Wednesdays.
Haven't really done the fitness...go in on Wednesday at 11am to set up my personal time and routine. Other than that, I like all my teachers, and enjoy my classes. I really like Mr. Anglin, my Oral Comm. teacher, he's so fun, and outgoing....and we'll only have to meet in the classrooms on Tuesday from now on. In his class we're split into 4 groups. Each group has to come up with a logo, song and metaphor. We're getting further on the song and logo than we have with the metaphor. But we get to work on it in class Tuesday a bit.
Hang out in the library after classes, and do school work and whatever, since I go in with mom.
That's about it so far. (Nice thing bout the math....Mrs. Mentz explains for us whatever we don't understand until we do understand it. :) )
still no job....might sell partylite...

Went to college orientation last night...was interesting. Nice to see my cousin Sarah and her husband Robbie. Saw a few other faces that I knew as well, which is a little weird...cause some I haven't seen in 6 or 7 years. Amazing how little some people can change in that amount of time.
Have classes in just 2 of the buildings so that'll make it a little easier....although...and it was rather stupid of me...but I just wasn't thinking bout it at the time...I didn't set aside anytime for lunch....so I'm stuck with a lot of snacks ;)

Fighting an upper respitory infection, am on an antibiotic for 10 days. Such fun.

Continue to pray for Brittni Larson. She's had a surgery that removed her lower bowel, leaving her only with the upper, but the good new is that after she heals that should be the end of all that and she won't have to go throughout life with a bag. So we're all grateful for that plus-side and we all hope to see her back at church very soon :)

Still no job, which bites. Although word is that the owner of the McDonald's in Union is going to suggest to the hiring manager there to interview me...and I've got it from a good source ;) So if I don't get a call by Tuesday, then I'll be calling them by Wednesday afternoon. Hopefully I hear something soon. I'm getting tired of looking and calling people. It's going to be hard enough as it is with my strange class schedule...and no lunch! yikes....going to after rememdy that ;)

Happy (belated) New Year ;)

Well...happy new year...a little belated i admit. Not much new. McKey's trying to readjust to the school schedule that she's not had for 2 weeks. which i'll have to do as well. make some adjustments. College starts January 20th, no job still. Miss Cindy Shocklee says Jess and I should make cards and sell them to people. she apparently knows several people who would buy cards. which is what we did today. we went to Miss Cindy's house and made cards for several hours. The collage is of the cards i made.
Mitch now has a punching bag, but no gloves. they cost to much right now. but he's happy bout just having the bag ;)

Can't think of anything else. :)

later for now.
