Let's Try This Again

Well, last summer I tried to take this algebra class and it kicked my booty so I had to drop it since I was taking Anatomy&Physiology and also working. Soooo, in another effort to take my mind off of my quest to become a mother I'm trying it again. :) My first day was yesterday....didn't really feel like the first day of school since I didn't have to go anywhere! :) It's an online class ~ I have to say that whoever's idea it was for online classes is truly a genius.
After this class I will only have 1 more class to take prior to applying for the nursing program! :) Plus I have to pass the N.E.T., which makes my stomach sick just thinking about it.
Anyway....I'm sure I will do great in this class.....as soon as I find my motivation.
Now....where did I put it.......

A Visit to the Past

We went to visit Cassie and Kyle in NM this past weekend and had such a wonderful time! It had been many years since I was in Farmington and it was so exciting getting to show Matt where I went to High School and where we lived and all my old stomping grounds. It has changed SO much ~ but still the same in many ways. We also took a drive up to Durango which was even more beautiful than I remembered! Matt used to work for a window company and part of his territory was Durango. In our search for somewhere to let the doggies run around we drove down a little side street and lo and behold ~ there was the window company Matt used to service!
Cassie and Kyle were such wonderful host/hostesses and we enjoyed our time with them so much. We were able to meet several of Kyles family members and were quite entertained by his little niece who was doing her best to make everyone laugh....just by giggling!! :) We were introduced to a couple of wonderful little breweries where we got to hang out on the patio and enjoy good conversations....It was wonderful to be able to sit outside in the middle of the day and not pass out from heat stroke!
Molly and Daisy got along wonderfully and didn't even try to escape from the yard while we were gone. I think Molly thought she had died and gone to heaven with that much running room ~ and a sweet little playmate! :) Daisy decided to sleep on Molly's bed the whole time and jumped up on it when Matt picked it up when we were ready to leave. :) I think she just didn't want us to go. She even went to Molly's protection when we were in Durango and a couple of big Huskies scared the bajeebies out of Molly! :)
We had such a wonderful time!!!! Even with the horrible movie selections! :) Thank you for letting us stay and for making our time there so comfy and fun!! :) Love you ~

Take A Moment

I just wanted to take a moment to remember the victims and their families that were affected by this date 7 years ago. Not only the innocent people who lost their lives on that specific day, but all of the people whose lives have been affected since then. I don't know how this current war will end, but I pray that it's under peace and safety for the men and women who are still over there and the countless innocent victims whose lives have been turned upside down due to it. I pray that it's soon so that no one else loses their life. I pray that our next president can make this happen....whoever that might be.

Not this time either...

It's not completely official, but it looks like they've chosen another family. There were so many reasons that I thought this might be "the one", but.....instead of preparing for a new addition to our family, we're left picking up the pieces of another disappointment. Yuck...I hate this feeling.
