Officially: "Just a College Student"

Tomorrow is my first official day as "just a college student". It has been several years (like more than 5), since I graduated from high school. It took me 3 years to get my Associates Degree, and now I am working toward my Bachelors degree. I will graduate in May 2011, so I am making decent progress being that I have been a part time student until this past semester.

Tomorrow will be my first full day (9:30 - 5) of college. I have always taken 1 or 2 classes a day, but never a FULL day. I'm planning on being completely exhausted, especially since tomorrow will be extra long with a night class that ends at 8 pm. I am not working yet, and it looks like I won't be working anytime soon, as I don't have any prospective employers banging down my door from the 30 something applications and resumes I have submitted.

I am looking forward to focusing on school more, and a job less. I'm excited about the opportunities I will be afforded with my new found free time.

Hope everyone had a fantastic weekend!

AWESOME Saturday!

Today was an awesome Saturday! Besides the obvious that I have my health and my family, it was great because it was stress free and relaxing, and I managed to slip in a late afternoon nap.

I had to be up early to do some employment testing, cross your fingers for me. I don't have to work, but honestly - I get bored at home. I did well on my test, but now I have to see if they think I am "capable" of doing the job - whatever that means.

In the afternoon I went shopping at my favorite store, Kohls. If you don't have a Kohl's in your neck of the woods, you seriously have no idea what you are missing. I would venture to say that 98% of my wardrobe is purchased in that store. After shopping we ate at my favorite restaurant, Cracker Barrel....yum! Chicken and Dumplings, fabulous! Then, a quick trip to the grocery store and home to watch the Dallas/Philadelphia game.

I'm not a fan of either team, but darn...can the Eagles do something?!?! It's not over yet, but I think it's safe to say Dallas has it.

Tomorrow I'm going to whip up a big pot of White Chicken Chili and watch football and get my money's worth out of the Wii. Fun fun!

It has been far to cold here in the south lately. If it's below 30 again tomorrow, I'm not leaving the house, for anything! It's too cold to start the car and get out of the car, and then have to warm the car up again. It is just too cold. Hello Mother Nature? Do you hear me? It's too cold! Bring the sun back to the south, warm it up.....50 would be fine with me, heck - I might even settle with 45!

Life As of Now.....

So, whats new with me? Well, for starters I have gotten really good at neglecting my blog. I plan to rectify that, and spend more time updating my blog. I really enjoy blogging, so I'm not sure why I don't do it more often.

Right now I am enjoying a break from school and find myself getting bored. It only takes me one day to clean the house really good, then the rest of the week I pick-up in the morning and I am bored for the rest of the afternoon. I need to find a hobby or something! I bought the supplies to make a knot blanket for a friend who is having a baby in March. I haven't started it yet, because I'm nervous! I just don't want to mess it up. I need my Mom to help me get started, then I will be OK to do it on my own. Other than that, nothing new is going on.

My weight loss is progressing and I feel better than ever. I am trying to get on an exercise routine, but I've been lazy. It's too cold to go to the park and walk, which is what I really love to do. I have a Wii Fit, but exercising in the house isn't any fun, so I put it off every chance I get. After school starts next week, I plan to get into a routine and then start exercising.

That's all for now.

The Life of the Unemployed...

The end of the semester came up quickly, I am very grateful for that. I am finished, except for 1 exam next Thursday. I am enjoying a little break until then. Yesterday and today I busied myself with laundry, dishes and baking. This morning I had some errands to run, and floors to wash. Of course, I enjoy some down time now and then.

TiVo is amazing! I love the Real Housewives of Orange County, and Jersey Shore. Let's be serious though, who takes their daughters who can barely walk and talk to get manicures and pedicures? Crazy! These people have too much money!

I'm ready for Christmas. Our house is decorated, and all the gifts are purchased and wrapped. I'm planning to try some new recipes, which is exciting. I actually have time to try recipes, because I am home to make them!

That's about all that's been going on.
