On the plus side---i love the smell of cut grass. My parents are putting in a new garden so I can't wait to get my hands dirty. We always put the flowers in for Mother's Day. Its fun picking out the different flowers and deciding on colors or theme for the year.
This month is a busy month for bdays. Half of my close friends and family have their bday in April. I feel like I have doing nothing but celebrating all month. DOn't get me wrong... it it fun but my wallet is feeling the crunch!
My home decor has come to a halt. I haven't been too motivated to decorate the place. I have some ideas and need to just act on them. I just hate spending the $$ on it. The couch and chair still is fabulous but I need to get some items to finish up the room:
New frames to put up travel pics
pillows for couch
new garbage can
I have a litle over a month left of the school year. I am looking forward to my summer break. I only get 40 days off but I plan on enjoying every bit of it. My brother and fam will be coming down for a week. I hope to get out of Missouri for a couple of weeks as well. Volleyball is going well. The team I am on are loads of fun. I have been ignoring my hip issue and so far it hasn't been too bad.
Hope you take some time out to enjoy the sun!

It’s actually almost mid-Feb but later is better then never Right!?!? The Holidays were highlighted with my emergency gall bladder surgery. That put a twist in the plans. I was lucky to have it happen so close to the holiday break. I spent the first week of the break in bed sleeping. Lets be honest there is about 30 days that I don’t remember! No complications so far. I am just very impatient and still trying to get back to eating food with spice.
My family celebrated the holidays at my brother’s house in Illinois. Forgot how bitter cold the north was! We were lucky to be there between the winter storms. Had a great time and celebrated the New Year’s with my niece and nephew. My new nephew, Nathan, is cute as a button. He slept thru the New Year but I enjoyed spending time with him.
Jan went by really fast and honestly nothing exciting happened. Except for the 3 days snowed in. LOL!! WE were lucky that the ice went further south. They are still cleaning up the mess about 2 hours south of us.
Work is going well. I am between projects right now. Can’t finish any one thing yet. In a few weeks everything will pick up and I will be crazy busy. Its feast or famine! I have been applying for multiple grants while I have the time. I am hoping that some funds will come my way so I don’t have to take out student loans for my last semester.
In March I am moving. My roommate is returning to Hawaii. So this will be the first time I will have the apartment to myself….ever!! Silver lining is that she will be in town till summer at her sis’s house…..which includes a pool and hottub. LOL We will be bummed when she leaves but that just means a trip to Hawaii for me.
Plans for Spring and Summer are in the air. We lost some vacation days due to the snow so I have to reschedule my Utah plans. I still want to go overseas sometime this summer. The Brit Pound and Euro has finally fallen so the exchange right is more reasonable. Last year it was almost double. EEK!! I guess tourism is also down so there are some great deals.
That is about it. Hope all is well with you. Keep me posted.
