Where did the week go?

Oh my last time I looked it was Sunday and now it id Wednesday. My asthma girl is doing better. She is usually out of school weeks at a time by this point and she has not missed any days this nine weeks...knock on wood. I have been super busy with work and finals coming up this week and next. I feel like I am in my car more than I am in my house...which after tonight might be a good thing. I call hubby after class to let him know I am on my way home and to see if we need anything. He is in a really bad mood and says yeah stop and get a wax ring for the toilet. Apparently the toilet got clogged by one of the kids and hubby tried to plunge it and broke it. So I get said wax ring and bring it home but that does not fix the problem. So tomorrow I will call the plumber and then clean my house like a crazy woman because god knows I don't want anyone seeing my house like it is now. Hope everyone else is having a great week.

Sick Kiddos

My kids have been sick since Wednesday. Just a cold until this morning when my oldest woke up really sick. She has Asthma and it is not something we play with. So we give her a treatment. I had go to work after calling the doc. Doc calls back and tells hubby if she gets any worse take her to after hours pediatrics. So I come home from work and take her over there. By the time we got her there her peak flow was only 150. Normally it is 350 or so. So they gave her the biggest breathing treatment I have ever seen and some steroids and told us to do treatments ever four hours. If it falls that low again go to the ER. I am hoping the meds take affect and we spend the night at home and not the ER. She is all hyper now from the meds and will probably be up all night but at least we will be at home. Oh well off to give her a treatment.

The Big Pig Out and Black Friday

I am so full and we ate at 2 this afternoon. I think we have all been picking at the leftovers all afternoon. I made a 20 pound turkey and about that in ham. Now I am just waiting for 8 to get here so I can watch Survivor. And then tomorrow I will be rising before the chickens to go shopping on black Friday. I am going to be hitting Walmart, Best Buy, and maybe Target. My mom and I have been doing this shopping day for years. This year my sister in law will be joining us for this mad dash to the layaway line. I am hoping to be on of the lucky ones to get the laptop at Walmart. Can't post what I am getting at Best Buy here cause my kids may see it. Any ways hope you all had a great thanksgiving and for those of you brave enough to venture out tomorrow morning I hope you get everything you are heading out to get.

Happy Thanksgiving 13 On Thursday

Thirteen Things about Beanhead

1. I love Thanksgiving

2. I love to cook on Thanksgiving.

3. I complain every year about the cooking but really it is no big deal to cook.

4. This year I am cooking for 12 people.

5. I am cooking turkey and ham because my hubby does not like turkey. I am also cooking him one sweet potato because that is his favorite.

6. We are having three different kinds of pie because everyone wants something different.

7. I hope that my kids grow and love this holiday as much as I do.

8. We are going to have drama at this years dinner. My brother is invited but his new girlfriend is not. The reason she is not is because his x and daughter live with my mom and they are going to be at dinner and noone really likes her.

9. I love the x(like a sister) and pretty much hate the new girl( she's a homewrecker)

10. I plan to spend a good part of today writing my papers for my art and history classes.

11. I took the art and history classes as blow off classes and have enjoyed both more than I thought I would.

12. I have been very lucky to get some great professors. Most are very passionate about the subject they teach.

13. Hey I did it and guess what it was easy

The Meeting and Other Nonsense

I called today and scheduled the meeting with the head of the ultrasound program. I meet him on Dec. 2 at 8:30 am. I know that if he likes you then your file gets "special Attention" I have never in my life wanted a man to like me as much as I want this man to like me. I feel like a little kid on Christmas morning. It has taken me so long to get to this point that it almost doesn't seem real. WooHoo for me I can see the light at the end of the tunnel.

I have been working like crazy the past few days so not alot of time to post. I did change the colors on my blog like 5 times. I think I am happy with this for now.

Hubby and I went out to dinner with some friends tonight, it was great we have not had the chance to do that in a long time. We went to Chili's. I had two top shelf Blue Pacific margaritas. YUMMY! I wish I could make them myself those babies cost $7.50 each.

~~New Look~~

So what do you think? Still working on the sidebar but for the most part it is done. I forgot how much work it is to change all the colors until I was halfway through it and wanted to quit. I have found lots of images I like so I may be changing my look more often.

Posed a Question

Tonight while watching TV my Hubby asked me why I don't go to school to be a paramedic. I was like because I am working hard to get into the Ultrasound program. I know that ultrasound is what I want to do. But then I got to thinking how exciting would it be to be a paramedic. I mean you get to see and do so much. You basically cross all fields. Now I think that I may submit my application to both the Ultrasound and Paramedic programs in Feb. My counselor told me to not put all my eggs in one basket and apply to more than one program. What do you all think?

My New Love

I am taking an art appreciation class this semester. Last weekend we went on a field trip to the local art museum to see a Georgia O'Keefe exhibit. Great stuff! I actually got to see a Pablo Picasso in person. I know to some people no big deal but it was amazing to me. But the thing that I found the most amazing was an artist named Hans Hoffman. I love his work. They only had one at the show this weekend but it was beautiful. I could have sat and looked at it for hours. I am including two other works I have found in recent days that I like also. The first one is called The Garden and the second one is called Fantasia. What do you all think?

My Miracle Diet

So Indigo wants to know how I lost my 23 pounds. It is amazing what happens when you stop eating at Mcdonalds and Sonic. I stopped eating fast food and starting cutting my meals down a little at a time and before I knew it about a fourth of the amount I used to eat fills me up. I still have days when I eat brownies and ice cream but they are few and far between. I am hoping to lose another 35 pounds by my birthday next year. Hey maybe I will get one of those little ticker things to track my weight lose. Anyone else out there trying to lose a little weight?

1. My kids and hubby are all healthy
2. I have a job

Blog Worth

Well I finally decided that I was going to use that blogshares account I created a few months ago. I started by buying a few shares of stock in Mitey Mite and boy was that smart. Then I noticed that my blog is listed twice and that there are like 10000 shares of my blog out there(neither of which are doing so hot). I merge the 2 blogs and now my blog is worth like nothing. I am going to keep trying to play and make sense of it all but I am not so sure that I would ever do good at this in real life. So any tips from any of you that play and are doing well would be greatly appreciated. Hope everyone is having a great weekend.

Getting in the mood

for Christmas that is. I am really not in that Christmas mood yet. I think it is so hard to get into the holiday spirit when it is still 80 degrees outside. Once it cools down and the air is filled with the scents of Christmas I am sure that it will hit me. This year I am hoping that hubby took the new camera hint and gets me one!! So what gets you in the holiday mood? What is on your must have list?

PS. Don't forget to check out my renter for this week Angie over at Ficken Chingers. Her site is great. Just go over to the sidebar and click on her little thumbnail!!
