I got to fly into Austin yesterday and spend the day with the nephews and fam (Luke and Becky). It was so fun! It was pretty much perfect, I just wish that Mom would have been able to come.
I landed in Austin at 10am, and then I got back to Houston at 5pm. DREAM!
We went to the children’s museum. The boys are so big, and cute, and sweet. I wish I got to see them more. I LOVE THEM SO MUCH!
It was really good to see Luke and Becky!
Here are some pics from the day.
Needless to say, A GREAT DAY HAD BY ALL!
But I was supposed to meet Asher in Paris, and I can’t and I am so sad.
Being in IAH yesterday just made me want to get on a plane to meet her there so bad. I knew I would feel that way so I left my passport at home, to avoid the temptation altogether. BUT it was still there, and I do really wish that I was there with her.
MISS YOU MUCHO.
Ashlee and I had such a great time when we went there in 2008 and I am sad we can’t have another great time in 2011.
In other news….
I got an over-the-door ironing board so I can finally get crack-a-lackin sewing in my room. I AM STOKED!
I am almost done with one credit of my MSN program. So it’s time to CELEBRATE good times come on. Let’s wait til the class is over, but then it’s time to party like it’s 1999. I found out that I was taking way more credits then you are supposed to. But I didn’t make my schedule, someone else did. So I have just been partying with the work load, and trying really hard to do well. It’s okay that my work load is doubled right now because I don’t have a job. At Walden they split the semester into two terms, and I guess that in a grad program that 6 credits for one whole semester is considered full time. Most of their students are working so they take one three credit class during the first term of the semester, and another three credit class during the second, for a total of six credits, making them a full time student. I had no idea. So this term, I am enrolled in seven credits. But I love the work. I spoke with an adviser and we changed it so I am taking another three credit course during the second term. Then I decided, I am not working so bring it on, and I am going to try to take 2 – three credit courses. I have to get special permission, but I think it will be great.
That means that by the end of this semester I will have 13 credits of my graduate degree completed!!! There are only 35 credits in my whole degree. There are 13 foundational credits that you have to take before you can start the specialization of your program. After this semester I should have all the foundational credits complete, so I can gets a’ specializin’. HORRAY.
So I will only have 22 more credit hours to go til I have a master’s degree. WHAT WHAT!!!! I love it, I love it, I love it!!!!
Then if I get a job in the winter I can reduce my credit hours to what is considered full time, and everything will be grand. If I keep up at this rate I will be graduating in December of 2012. A GIRL can dream right ladies!?!?!?!??!
