So. What's New?

Well, I'll tell you. I got all my grades back and I got A's across the board. Yay for me! My summer semester starts in about 2 weeks.

C's on leave right now. He took 4 days this week. We're not doing much of anything besides finishing up projects around the house. We broke ground (heheh) on the sidewalk project today. We're about half way done with the digging but it started raining AGAIN, so we had to call it quits. We're hoping to get the thing finished tomorrow if the weather would just cooperate. We bought a couple shrubs and a lilac bush to plant as well. When we get the flower beds finished I'll buy some flowers to put in. I haven't decided what I want to get yet though. We're also going to try and get the dining room floor finished. Eating at the coffee table is getting really old. Doesn't sound like C's getting much of a vacation does it?? heheh.

Meanwhile, it looks like Vickie and Candy are going to pick the girls up for the summer. It'll probably be the second week of July. The girls are pretty excited.

In other news...We have a mouse in the house. Big UGH!!! Seeing as how our house is in the country surrounded by open fields, I think this turn of events was pretty much inevitable. The weird thing about it is that the mouse seems to like the drawer that I keep Saran Wrap and aluminum foil in. I also have a package of cough drops that it likes to eat. C and I heard it in the kitchen last night and tried to sneak up on it so we could see it in action. As soon as I got into the kitchen, the smell of menthol was overwhelming, heheh. Now, we're in the market for a cat.

Let's see. I think that's about it for now. Until next time...

10 Years

Today is our ten year wedding anniversary. And you said we'd never make it. Ha! Showed you.

Talk about ups and downs though. We sure have had them, that's for sure. What doesn't kill you only makes you stronger, right? It just sucks that we had to have this milestone on recruiting duty. C isn't even going to be here. He has to take a kid down to MEPS for the night. Figures. So maybe we'll get to celebrate in some way over the weekend. We haven't really made any plans. On to other things...

My semester is about over. I have to finish up my Psych final and my Art final and then I'll be all done. I've already registered for my summer classes: Intro to Ethics, Women in U.S. History, and Meteorology. Why Meteorology you ask? Well, I'm trying to be prepared in case we get to go back to San Diego and I can get accepted into SDSU, my school of choice. I needed a physical science class to satisfy SDSU's gen ed requirements and that's the only one my school offers over the summer that didn't sound too horrible. I feel like such a nerd for taking it, but we'll see how it works out. I only have the summer and Fall semesters left before I'll have my A.A.

The girls only have a month and a half of school to go. This year has really flown by. It's still sort of up in the air about their plans for going to Ohio this summer. I don't know when they're leaving, who is picking them up, or how long they're staying, lol. Guess I should be figuring all that out.

Everything else around here is pretty much normal. It's still chilly and rainy here in Vermont. Spring, otherwise known as the Mud Season, sucks and we're just holding out for summer. I think that just about catches everyone up on us. Till next time.
