And Then She Flunked......

It's True. More Than A Single Mom isn't having fun in school. I flunked a test. Wow. I can't believe I said that. I still can't say it out loud, but I'm ready to type it. Can you hear me blogging world? I failed a freaking test. Not exactly the best way to pass this 5 week-class-from-hell. And make note that I got a 69% on the test, but passing in Nursing school is 75%.

Other than that, life is the same. I miss the Internet. I miss my email. I miss all of you. It's funny. I think of things I want to blog about when I am in school or driving, but never find time to get to a computer. Then, when I am finally here for the first time in over a week (I think).......I am blank. With nothing to say. Oh yeah, because I can't stop thinking about that test. Grrrrrrr.

I am going to try and read a few blogs right now. Then it's off to vocab words.

I love and miss my Cyber World. Be back when I can.

if I end up with a C..........

Let me first start off by saying, what in the world are all you bloggers drinking? Pregnancy is in the air. I took a week or two off of blogging to get my thoughts straight and BAM! She started the whole thing. Then it was this one showed up with TWO babies in the belly. And this gal is having her FIRST baby. But, this one couldn't be outdone by deciding to have her FOURTH! Am I missing anyone out there? I think I am. Congrats to you all! I'll join you all ........mmmmmm.......maybe someday? For now, I am hitting the books.

So this first 5 week class for Nursing school.........barely holding my head up in there. I am fastly heading towards a C and I haven't had a C yet since I started college! Ugh.

Signing out for now. Later gators!

What's A Blog?

Wow. I forgot how to use the computer. It's been awhile huh? You may want to know what my new life is like. Well, I am not sure which was harder.......the old life or the new life.

If I were to say that my first week of school was hard, it would be an understatement. Crooked Eyebrow, how exactly was it that you made it through Nursing school? Because, I almost didn't make it my first week!

Picture this......first day of class the teacher says I want you to memorize this abbreviation for tomorrow's quiz.......and read the first 10 chapters by Wednesday for a test. And there's another quiz on Thursday. By today, I am beat.

Haven't had a chance to read all your blogs yet, but I will get to them over MLK day on Monday! Going to school does have it's advantages.......I have Monday off!

Throwback Thursday - Camping Fun

Came across this picture this morning. Sure makes me think of summer. These are the little girls Missy goes camping with every year (while I hang out with their moms by the fire/pool/cabin). The little one on the chair is Missy's cousin.

I Feel 10 lbs. Less

I sit in my office one last time and blog. No worries bloggers, I'll still be on. I just won't be on during company time anymore! haha.

It's my last day in Chicago. Wow. I started back here when I was just a young girl pretty fresh out of high school. I remember walking in through the doors back on September 21, 1998 without a care in the world. I am more nervous to leave this place than I was when I walked through those doors originally. Where did the confidence go? If only I could be that care free girl without a worry like I was then.

In 9 1/2 years my whole life has change. My work friends watched me meet Missy's dad, they saw the bruises, they watched me as Missy grew in my belly, they watched me get the courage to walk away, they watched me decide to go back to school, and they watched my giddiness as I met the Tiger and we talked on yahoo messanger all day long when he was stationed in California. Oh, the dreamy boy over the internet. Boy does time fly.

I'll miss them. Not all of them. I wouldn't mind my boss losing a few toes to a cab driver at lunch today. But the rest..........I hold a special place for them in my heart. I'm sorry but I've got to move on. There's a whole other life waiting out there for me! And I can't wait to go and get it.

Enjoy some pictures from a night out with work girls a couple of summers ago........... I shall miss them all.

Eyebrows? Who Woulda Thought.........

As I am going over my list of crap to do over and over again in my never dawned on me.........until now. I get my eyebrows done in Chicago. I am spoiled. The woman works in my building downtown and has been 4 floors below me for YEARS. Ever since I figured out how to be a woman and that having ONE eyebrow wasn't "cool."

So now I look to y'all for some help! My lady will do my eyebrows next Tuesday on my last day. But, after that I am on my own.

Talk it out. Battle it out. Yell at each other. Whatever you do. Come up with a place amongst y'all for me to get my eyebrows done locally in Indiana! And that's Northwest Indiana. No names of places in Indianapolis please! hahahaha
