Spring Break?

I guess technically you could call the next two weeks my Spring Break. Since I'm not in school full-time I don't really get a Spring Break, but I do get two weeks off between winter and spring quarters. Speaking of winter quarter I finished the quarter with a 'B' in Econ and an 'A' in Marketing. The only was only after I questioned him about a zero on an assignment that we didn't even have!

In other not school realted news. My trip to SC was great and low ket, just what I needed. Now it's back to the grind of work and life. The step-son is on spring break next week and will be going to PA with MIL to spend the week there. This is an annual thing and we thought he wouldn't be able to go b/c she's in school but she wants to make it work. Which means hubz and I get the week for just the two of us. It's during times like this that we get to be the newlyweds I always picutred myself being but aren't b/c hubz has a son. We definately take advantage of them. There's always at least one trip to Hooter's for dinner and a sometimes we get wild and crazy and go the movies in the middle of the week!

I can't believe that next week is Easter. Where is the year going?! Although I can't say I don't appreciate the year speeding by it just puts me that much closer to graduating with my Master's and looking for a new job. While I enjoy most of the people I work with, I don't enjoy my job and can't wait to find something more challengning and fulfilling. Now it's back to said mundane job!

A baby, a mini-Reunion and School

Well my newest nephew, Josiah Marelle, decided to make his appearance into the world 3 weeks early. He was born yesterday, via c-section, at 320ish am weighing in at 6 lbs, 5oz and 19 inches long. He's so little but totally PERFECT! I can't wait to give him a cousing close to his age...here's hoping that happens sooner rather than later. Picture of this cutie are forth coming.

I'm off to South Carolina this weekend to visit a good friend from my college days. We haven't seen each other since my wedding a year and half ago. She was living in Cali but got a new job in October at the University of South Carolina. We've been trying to get together ever since then and finally are able to do...I'm so EXCITED!!! My UT girls are one of the things I miss most about college.

I got my first final grade. It's from Econ and it's a....'B'!!!!! HOORAY!!! And as a little icing on the cake I got a 100% on my take home final! What the hell is that all about?! Now I'm putting last minute touches on my Marketing Plan, the big grade for my Marketing class, and then it's in the hands of the professor. Right now i'm about 2.5pts away from an 'A' in that class so with any luck this paper will push it to an 'A' but if not I'm happy with a 'B'. This quarter definately wound up better than I ever expected. Next up...Law and Stats.

Yard Work

So we bought this house 7 months ago and it was a foreclosure. Though it was way better than most of the foreclosures we looked at it still needs a little TLC. Lots of paint and tons of yard work, especially in the back yard. Well, this past weekend we started with yard work and while it doesn't look like much yet with the right eye you can see what is has the potential to be. Unfortunately for me, my allergies do not enjoy the yard work and after spending Saturday and Sunday outside most of both days I woke up yesterday with sneezing, sniffles and watery eyes...oh the joys. Add to the allergies sinus pressure and it's like a day at the carnival! I then thought it'd be a good idea to bowl yesterday where at least 1/2 the bowling alley smokes...HELLO ASHTHMA!!! My asthma is pretty mild and really only acts up when I'm sick or my allergies are really bad. Needless to say I had an asthma attack at bowling, thank goodness for my inhaler that I found out was almost empty! DAMN IT...it was enough to help a little but by the time I got home I had to have a breathing treatment..where the only bright spot was that little Gozer was freaked out by the machine and barking at me like a vicious killer. Lucky for me I've learned to not overreact when I can't breath, it makes it worse. Now I'm at work, I remembered to take my allergy med and it's a whole new day. I tell you what I sure hope this isn't just a glimpse into what allergy seasons going to be like this year!

The Fever

The fever's stronger than ever. It baffles me that when we're younger we do everything we can to NOT get pregnant. Then when we're older and married, assuming you take the normal order of the things, and are ready to be pregnant it's not as easy as our parents led us to believe. So that's where I stand trying to figure out how to move this process along. I want a baby NOW!!! It was my decision to wait until I was a least half way through my master's program and I will be in June, but if we're not pregnant by Julyish then we have to take a three month break so I'm not SUPER pregnant for my sister's wedding next May and it's just come to my attention that my other sister is apparently getting married, but once again she decided not to share anything with me...now I'm starting to take it personal, but first I'm going to talk to her about it before I put her on blast on this blog.

EDIT: it's not that she wasn't telling anyway she's trying to be sisterly and not take the other sister's spotlight. looks like i'll have another wedding to plan this time next year and this ones a destination wedding...ST.THOMAS watch out the dawson girls are coming to town.

Just Kidding

So I thought I'd do better but apparently not so much. Ehhhhh...oh well.

In other news... my sister's still pregnant, I'm still going strong with 'Bs' in Econ and Marketing and I'm done next week. I'm happy with 'Bs' sure and 'A' in Econ would have been nice but it's whateva.

We're working on the backyard this weekend excited and dreading it all at the same time. I'll be happy when it's done that's for sure.

My best friend has this weird ability to kind of know when someone is pregnant. She dreams about snakes and probably about 95% of the time it means someone she knows is pregnant. Unfortunately this time it's not me, but it might be her. She and her husband are trying for their 2nd. She's younger than I am but was ready for kids way before me. Here's hoping we wind up pregnant at the same time. We'd love for our kids to be best friends like we are and waht if we have a boy and girl and they get married, then we'd be related! But I'm but the cart before the horse...first we have to get KTFU!

Holy hell it's been almost three weeks since my last post...i'm such the slacker which was quite evident last nite by my marketing homework not being done until about 1030, my bed time's 10 i do get up at 430. Speaking of school I'm still carrying a 'B' in both classes two weeks left to go. I'm hopeful I can maintain or maybe even get the marketing, which is an 85, to an 'A'..fingers crossed.

In other exciting news...my youngest sister is only 4 short weeks away from delivering my newest nephew and my other sister has begun the wedding planning. What an exciting time for my sisters and mom and me really.

As for me no news on the baby front, not that I'd be announcing it here before the 2nd trimester anyway. My best friend and her husband have decided they're going to start trying for their second so maybe we'll be pregnant together...that'd be cool.

It's slow as work this week, all the powers that be are at a meeting, so I'm sure I'll be updating on my mundane life everyday this week.
