A Break

Things I've had the time and energy to do since I decide to take the semester off.

  • Read 7 books, for fun.
  • Eat dinner before 9.
  • Take a hot bath any day of the week.
  • Take a full lunch break.
  • Go to the movies.
  • Spend time with my husband.
  • Watch t.v. without feeling guilty.
  • Attend appointments with my mom.
Taking a break this semester good be one of the best things I've done in awhile. Although, I will pay for it in the upcoming semesters.

A New Calling

I have officially left my CTR 7 class and began as the Young Women's Secretary. I'm a little nervous because I have never done this before and wasn't given much instruction. If anyone has any ideas, that would be great. Otherwise, I will be figuring it out along the way.

I have been debating how, when, or if I should share this news on my blog. I decided it was better that you hear from me rather than someone else. People have been known to twist the details.

My mom has been diagnosed with breast cancer. The official diagnosis was March 26 and she had a double mastectomy last Thursday. It is invasive lobular breast cancer that is at least stage 2. She will need chemo and radiation. Chemo will start in about a month and radiation will come after that. She is doing really well after surgery and is in high spirits.

I wish it were better news, but I thought everyone should know what is going on.

And What Did I See....

But, a new car where the old one used to be. They found the car a week after it was stolen. Abandoned with 800 more miles, a trashed interior and wrecked suspension. After much fighting with Geico to get our car looked at, they totaled it. We searched and searched until we found the right car for us. A 2000 Subaru Outback.
Hopefully, it last longer than the last one.

We are back in school and back into school life. Which means, boring. We work, go to school, and do homework. That is about it.

You should all go read Holly's complete version of the "stolen car, popcorn song", it's in the comments, she is so creative.
