Random Meanderings

It's been about a month since I updated my blog, so I'll start with a random thoughts, meanderings, and updates.

= Happy Birthday America, a wonderful day to celebrate, be thankful for our freedoms, and to remember that Freedom never is and never has been free. A huge thank you to everyone serving in our military, and may you all come home safe and soon.

= I spent the weekend without answering my cell phone, checking my email, or listening to my mp3 player except for the few hours I was writing. I did have a deadline, so I had my laptop with me.

= I finished a book. One I wrote. WOO HOO!!! Happy Dance for me. I'm excited and thrilled!!!!!!!!!!

= I may have a new hobby - I so don't need another one.

= I got financial aid for my last year of school.

= I may or may not move, not quite sure.

= I actually stitched on TW's Castle. I'll upload a WIP pic soon.

= It's only 2 months until school starts

= I'm not sure what's scarier your dd on the brink of becoming a pre-teen and dressing the part or the rest of the stuff that goes with it. DD asked if she could wear her clothes a certain way, and I said that within reason I don't care. If you start to look like a tramp, then we'll have issues. She was thrilled. My DD will be 10 in 4 months and will be driving in 5 years.

= I have started the application process for grad school. Lots of money going out. OUch.

= I get to do the coolest shadowing program in August. I'm excited. But too many people will think it's gross, so I'll leave it at that.

= Oh, and the picture, that's Lake Michigan at sunset. That was taken in May, but a friend came up to visit and saw our 'little' lake that you can't see the other side on, and stuck her toes in. We popsicled her, because the water was maybe 50 F degrees, and yes, people were swimming in it.
