Gorgeous Spring-ish Days Here! ( Pics!)

The weather has been unbelievable here! Absolutely incredible! I'll share some pictures for you to gawk at! It's been in the high fifties (Fahrenheit) over here and so sunny!!! :) We have been to the waterfront and on walks! Gorgeous!

That's Interesting...

My background is all screwy. :/ I guess the photobucket bandwidth has been exceeded. My blog was designed by someone else.

First Ice Skating Adventure!

Today Anna and I went ice skating with my sister Jen's Girl Scout troop! It was a lot of fun, but it was very exhausting for me since Anna could barely stand by herself for more than a half a minute and I had to use all of my bodily strength to keep her upright. She may be three, but she wanted to be one of the big girls and skate across the ice like a pro. I took a three hour nap after coming home! haha :D It was so much fun, though!

My Little Shirley Temple

The cutest thing I saw Anna do today was to copy the first scene of Shirley Temple's Bright Eyes. As cars passed, she stuck her little thumb out to hitch hike. As they passed by, she'd continue to walk with her hands in her pockets. LOL! You can see that first scene a few minutes in here:

Preston's Going Home!

Candace just posted on my blog (I wish I knew more about her) that Preston is being adopted by her and her husband! I read the comment on my blog and immediately started crying! Thank you, Jesus! This little sweetie just stole my heart from day one! I'm so glad that he stole someone else's heart! :)

Candace, please keep me updated. If you blog, can I have your URL?


Mutterings of a Tired Undergrad

Maybe I should title these posts after I write them. Sometimes I just write and have no real direction to go and I just GO there. We're doing fine. We've had some major hurdles concerning our financial aid that aren't really taken care of yet. :| I think Paul is just as stressed as I am. Today and yesterday we have argued way more often than we usually do. We actually don't argue too often, but I think we're just feeling this awful stress. I wish with all of my heart we could afford some sort of vacation. There are major drawbacks to going to college, sure, but I think that the benefits will outweigh the drawbacks. Right now there are days we just don't believe it. But logically thinking, we'll be able to afford more vacations post-Bachelor's than sans Bachelor's. Plus we'll be getting our MAs. I just need to take a breath. It sure would be nice to have a break, though.

As far as my education is going, I am immensely enjoying the psychology program! I love looking forward to my classes! I'm just afraid that my psych classes will keep having coinciding tests--ugh. The good news on that front is that I got a 98% on one of those tests and the next test I'm not sure yet. We'll get those results back next week. I think I'll be lucky to get a B. I was exhausted and my brain was mush by the time that second test came along and I struggled through it. I'm hoping I'm being my usual self--thinking that I did worse than I actually did. We'll see.

I think I'm going to take this time to sigh and hem and haw until I go to bed at around 3. Good-night.
