Too much to do and no time to do it...

I've been working extra hard lately trying to get as much OT as I can while they are offering it. Kidlet is going to OK for Xmas break so I hope to be pulling 11-12 hr days while she is gone. Started up an astronomy class last week. Gotta get that science credit, you know. Still making A's in school and trying my best. For those of you who read this, sorry I didn't post a Happy Thanksgiving Day post but better late than never, right? so Happy Thanksgiving! hahaha

Wanna see a cutie?

I just realized I forgot to post a picture of my little pumpkin during Halloween! Isn't she adorable?

Thanksgiving again...

Well it's soon to be Thanksgiving again. Where has this year gone to? It seems like just yesterday it was NYE day and the year was beginning. Things I am thankful for:

I'm sure there are other things I'm thankful for but that's the most important I can think of at the moment. I am having my one year anniversary at work next month. Wow! Time is flying by there too. I seemed to have moved from the mail room to scanning department though and still trying to figure out how that happened. I like the scanning though because I can sit down all day. Not sure if I will stay there or not but we will see. I have another class that starts up on Tuesday (Astronomy). I have to fulfill my last science credit then its back to main core classes. I'm supposed to be reading my chapters today but I haven't felt like it. It's early yet though...

In the spirit of Thanksgiving, what are you thankful for?

Okay, my mug is posted...

I joined Facebook, why? I have no clue...people keep sending me gifts and I keep forgetting to accept them. If I had more time for it, it would be okay, but hopefully they'll forgive my lack of time to accept them. I can post comments from my phone though..isn't life grand? hahaha

It's tough...

When team mates have emergencies or drop out of class. I've been so busy with my Economics class that I've barely had time to do anything else. Luckily, I have other team mates willing to help take up the slack and that makes it more easier.

On a different note, we are expecting more rain! I think we are in for a very wet winter this year. Not sure if it will be cold or not, just wet.

Got to see my Grandbaby today! She is sitting up by herself and eating baby food now. They grow so fast. Spoiled rotten too! Can't be too far from her Momma or she throws a fit! But she's sooo cute...

See what I mean?

Less than a week to go...

Why is it that time flies by so quickly? I take two weeks off between classes in order to have a break and spend time doing the first assignment for the next class but for some reason this two weeks is flying by and I've not had any time to do anything. I'm not ready for my class to begin! Am I getting burned out by this stuff? I'm thinking I need more than two weeks. Maybe after this class, we will see. Economics is going to be difficult because I have a hard time reading those stupid graphs. Fortunately, I've had both economics classes before so hoping I actually retained some of it. Anyway, guess what I get to spend my last weekend of freedom doing? Writing my first paper for class in order to stay ahead of the game....

Some days...

I don't like waking up. I have a headache this morning and I don't know if its from the weather (which is fanstatic) or PMS. Kidlet awoke me at 2AM this morning and it took me an hour to realize it was WAY too early for her to be up! Made her go back to bed and my head has gone downhill from there. I think a hot shower and back to bed sounds pretty dang good right now...

Another class ended

Well, I survived Humanities 102 and I believe I made an A. I haven't received the final grade yet but going by what I've made so far, it should be an A. I was pleasantly surprised that our final team project passed with such flying colors (14.7 out of 15 points). I had a good team this time but one of the people didn't do much for the last project. I hate waiting till the last minute to do things and she waited until Sunday to finally post something. By that time I had written her part as a backup. But I guess it doesn't truly matter, since we did so well anyway, right? My next class is Microeconomics. I've had Micro and Macro before but this school wouldn't transfer the credits so I have to take them again. I hope it isn't as boring as the regular classes were when I went to campus. That class you could take a nap in it was so boring. There is a lot of reading and writing of course but I hope to get an early start this weekend. I have another week to go before class actually begins and I want to get a head start on the first paper that is due.

Not much else is going on. Pulling as much OT as I can at work in order to have a decent check. Taking care of kidlet and loving my grandbaby, Caylee. I'm off to put on my shoes and head to work. Happy TGIF!

September already!

I can't believe it's already September. Time is flying by so fast this year. Every Saturday I tell myself I'm going to slow down and enjoy the day. Wait! Maybe when I die....

Alive and kicking

I'm still alive and well. Things have been hectic trying to get kidlet's bus schedule worked out for school. I'm still making A's in my classes and start up another one on Tuesday. Changes are happening at work but they don't involve layoffs which is good. Caylee is growing like a weed and I'll be seeing her again on Sunday. That's my life, what there is of it....

A poem or ???

On silent clouds the wind draws nigh, floating quietly through the sky...

That's all I have for now

No motivation...

I don't know what it is about this Marketing class but I can't seem to get motivated. I have no energy to write about anything. I have a paper coming due on Monday and so far I've only started the introduction paragraph. I need motivation! Any ideas anyone???

It's too hot! I'm already wanting winter to get here. This 103 plus is for the birds.

Finally got the iPhone in I was waiting for and now waiting for my new Dell Studio one19 to come in I'm such a gadget freak...

Who knew...

It would be so difficult to order the new iPhone 32 S. Lauren and BJ are buying it for me but the people who take orders are idiots! Here's hoping it ships out tomorrow. On a different note, I'm putting off writing a paper. My next class starts in week and a half and will have a paper due first week. I'm hoping to get inspired this weekend. Cross your fingers for me..,

I downloaded a new app for my iPhone to better stay in touch. Of course nothing major is going on to write about but you never know, right???

It's gonna be my birthday!!!

It's my birthday tomorrow and for some reason I am sure being depressed today. I keep thinking is this all there is??? Will the rest of my life consists of worrying about sitters, work, health, and Vicky without anything for me? No love life, no peace of mind, no rest? I know this mood will pass but for now I seem to be wallowing in it and keep wishing all my worries will go away...permanently. Oh well, Happy Early Birthday to me...

So much for babysitters...

Well, the new sitter welshed out on me. After watching her on Friday and yesterday, she decided she couldn't devote the time for Vicky on top of watching the other kids she does. No notice, just a phone call. Another girl, Erin, called yesterday evening and wants to try her hand at watching her. I think it's going to get harder and harder as she gets older trying to find someone for her. I may end up having to move to Waco just to find more available sitters. I can't do that until she finishes school. This is so hard as a single parent. I have to work to pay bills and take care of her. The stress of all of it is eating me up. Isn't life grand? NOT...

I'm so behind on posting lately. This Business Law class has kept me busy and my next class, Finance for Business, will also, I am sure. I've been having a sitter crisis lately. My wonderful sitter of two years had to move out of the area and I didn't have anyone to cover for her. Fortunately, after much nail biting and no sleeping, I found a new sitter. She'll start with her on Friday and it's such a relief. I pray they will get along. Vicky is a big flirt and this new sitter has BOYS!!

Caylee is doing great. Gaining weight and still purty! Grandma hopes to see her on Sunday! Wish I had more going on in my life but I think my plate is pretty full.

More Caylee...

Can you tell I'm a proud Grandma?

Thursday, March 05, 2009

Welcome to Caylee Stella!

Caylee Stella was welcomed into this world a little after 9:00 PM today. She weighed 7 lbs. 11 oz. and was 20 inches long! Mother is doing fine, Grandma is eggscited! Kidlet doesn't get it yet but will when she sees her sister doesn't have a belly anymore and can see Caylee for the first time. : )

Catch up day...

Wow, I didn't realize it's been over a month since I've last posted. I'm so busy doing classwork, working, and taking care of kidlet, that I have no time to get online and do other things. I do have some news though. Lauren will be having her baby on March 5th!! The doctor is going to induce it (don't ask me why, I don't know). I'm sooo excited. I am taking the day off but have to work that whole day Saturday, which will suck. Small price to pay though for watching Caylee being born.

Kidlet will be 21 on March 21st. I can hardly believe it. Lordee, I feel so old. That's about it for my life. Nothing new going on besides the baby and birthdays. Hope everyone who reads this is doing well.

Baby Shower...

I went to Lauren's baby shower today. She got the cutest things. I thought I would post some of them here. Her sister, Sarah, drove up from Baytown as well and got a picture of them both too. Enjoy the pictures!

Lauren and Sarah


Opening presents!

The Browns and ME : ) (I'm the one behind Lauren with the glasses on)

Beautiful Baby Mamma!
