So. Eric has been gone for 5 days and I'm gettin back in the groove. Although I will admit, I'm already burnt out. I have had to do a lot of catchup with school so it's been rush, rush, study study. I also had a couple of Etsy orders to fill, so I had to make those up and get those mailed as well.
Last Friday I got to spend time with some great friends. We went to the mall and tooled around there for a few hours, then that evening we all went to go see a movie. It was exactly what I needed and those girls are the kind of people I like to spend time with...So thanks girls!!!
This weekend is my 26th birthday. Can you say "HOLY CRAP?!" It's closer to 30 than 20, so I'm freaking out a bit. Ugh. 26. ::sigh:: I'm going out to eat with friends that night, so that should be a good time. :) I will need a break after trying to throw two papers together that I am so not motivated to write.
I registered for summer classes but am confused on how to pay for them. What I understand is that financial aid will pay for them if you have left over aid from the fall and spring semesters. I don't think I do. So I don't know. I had money set aside for classes just in case, but then Eric needed $ and my "therapy" seemed to depleat it down to...well...nothing. So I will have to talk to FA to see what's up. It would be really nice if they could take it out of next years FA, but I don't think they can. As of right now I am signed up for math and a technical writing class. I was hoping to get my science out of the way, but apparently they don't have chemistry available in the summers.
My daughter is both driving me NUTS and making me so proud. The nuts part is that she has turned into a hair puller. I mean a...if you take my toy I am taking you down to the floor by your hair hair puller. Ugh. And the bad thing is, she never shows any sort of physical aggression towards me, so I can't discipline her. The only thing she does to me is talk back. So yeah. And, don't judge me, but I am the parent that if she pulls my hair, I'll pull her hair right back (not to hurt her ofcourse, just enough to stun her). At least shes not a biter. Ha. But she makes me SO PROUD. She can count to 10!!! That's the latest on her achievements. :) We'll trade off numbers and she sounds SO cute. We're working on her letters and colors. Every color is either blue or green, but she can point to the correct color when you ask her. Same with her letters. All of the letters are B, but she can differentiate between most of them. We'll keep working on it.
I made another custom order for a repeat customer. She liked her order so much she came back and ordered 2 more bows and another beanie in another color.
I also wanted to try the Lion Brand Cotton East yarn so I bought a skein and made two hats with the same design in two different sizes. I think they turned out so cute! I have them listed. :)
Thank god for my crafts because they keep me busy in down time, and my mind off my troubles...
Alright. I'm done. Haha.
