Update on me

Lets see .... we'll start with Mother's Day:
my Mother's Day Blessing:

Ponderings from a mom to a "non-picky"
Reading the chef thread made me think again how blessed I am with Jackson. We went to a chinese buffet on sunday and we realized we'd never taken the kids to one- well, a good one. That day my son ate cold-peel-it-yourself shrimp, hot of the same, two oysters in shell, two frog legs, sushi with tuna, salmon, and a california roll (3 pieces all together), fish eggs (is that caviar? duh I dunno), garlic green beans, among other 'regular' things. He had nothing fried. How about that for a 7 yo? even Hannah liked the fish eggs, that was her 'new' thing :)

I started my summer semester today. In the next 8-10 weeks, I will be taking 16 week's worth of:

Introduction to Computers
Introduction to Business
Introduction to Sociology
Expository Writing

I didn't fail my last computer class, but it was not transfer. It's a carbon copy of this one, except this one has one additional project per chapter. The professor told me to save all my work on my pin drive and turn it in when it was due, I say kewl

I had Expository writing today. We are working towards writing out the research sources and thesis for a research paper, but not writing the actual paper. Okkaaayyy, I can handle that. But what do I want to research?

The other thing we will be graded on is, one more topic. We pick our topic- write a rough draft. Turn it in for grade, receive tips. Implement tips, turn in for next grade. Then receve more tips, and turn it in for final grade on paper. What's cool is, I already have a paper ready for this!! When I went to get my GED the one who implemented my practice test said that she'd never had a perfectly written paper before- mine! That she' seen college graduates' papers that were not as good as that one. So I asked that she xerox me a copy. Yep, it's sitting right over there ----------> Woo-Hooo!!!

Last but not least- I got my report card this week- I have a 4.0 average!


  1. I'm still somewhere around here, if I can just find where I put myself. I think this spring has been hard on everyone for some reason, in varying degrees.

    Wait. . .in that last sentence, take out "spring" and put in "life". It's just life. Putting one foot in front of the other, being renewed, perfected, and transformed. Wish it were easier.

  2. Well I'm so glad you're here!! ((((C)))) If that last sentence isnt the truth I don't know what it!

  3. Sending you hugs. I hope you can find ways to cope. Hang in there.
