Jan 8th

Look at me slacking already lol. Its been a very good week overall. I'm more peaceful, calm and simply enjoying where I am in my life. School started yesterday and I'm so excited. Heehee, I'm such an overachiever and nerd it ain't even funny. Its been interesting and I've wondered how I'd spend my days once my season of homeschooling was over. Now I know and its totally awesome.

This semester I'm taking the following:
Computer Concepts ~ 1st 8wks course ~ one I can teach in my sleep lol
Physical Science ~ 2nd 8wks course
French 1
Fundamentals of Music ~ my fun class
Voice Lessons
College Algebra

Purchased my books and spent a whooping $400 but its good, Uncle Sam paid for it..thanks big guy. I'm looking forward to this semester, gearing up for the transfer to OSU. Starting to give thought to where I want to teach when I'm done. East coast is calling me but I'm thinking west coast because I've never been and it would be an adventure. We shall see and whatever the future holds, I know that I'll enjoy every single moment of it.

On the knitting OSU scarf is not moving along at all. Its an easy pattern I've done several times but the author is right it doesn't go very fast on large needles lol. I just need to sit down and watch a movie or listen to a book so I can get 'er done ;). Need to pick a project for sock yarn kal and need to finish socks for my friend in NYC. I like being busy and I like having things to do w/my hands and mind. I'm thinking 2011 is going to be an excellent year for me.

Have an awesome day! ;)

Jan 4th

Yesterday, apparently wasn't very eventful since I didn't post. Today wasn't either. I spent time cleaning my room which I'd neglected for almost 3wks. Did a little planning for school and organize my coupon piles to be clipped but really didn't do much but sleep. Work was smooth which was better than yesterday. I've already gotten ready for bed and will turn off the lights shortly.

Feeling accomplished, complete and content. Not concerned about one thing and it feels absolutely wonderful. No knitting today and can't find my needle bag. Hopefully will locate it tmorrow.

Well, off to sleep now....more tomorrow ;)

Jan 2nd

Its been a great weekend. I've been housesitting and have taken the time to rejuvenate. The art of simply being is marvelous. I've birdwatched, spent time gazing at the lake and reading. I've even gotten in some knitting and watched several of my favorite tv shows.

In preparation for returning to work and school, I've started working on a daily schedule and trying to figure out a menu plan for 1 or maybe 2 so I've leftovers for lunch. Its harder than it appears for I'm so use to making dinner for 5+. I'm almost completely registered for school which is going to be a heavy load this year being that I will be attending 2 schools while working 2 pt jobs. I've decided that my social life must cease for now and focus on moving forward w/my career. I can't wait to return to the classroom and it would give me the freedom to travel and have a decent social life. So the sacrifice now is worth it. Also by cutting back my social side, I can spend time on developing me so I can be all that I'm designed to be. Stashalong group has started up for the new year. I've posted updates and I've planned our first kal within a kal. Its called "not just for socks," which uses sock yarn to create whatever you desire. Though sock yarn is not consider stash, it still deserves to be reduced so we can buy more. lol

That's all for now. Going to continue to relax, listening to music and playing online games. May start listening to my audio book "Eyre Affair," which I've read but want to refresh before reading the remainder of the series. Looking forward to an awesome week w/my new plans. I'm excited and can't wait.

Be blessed!
