Eight inches gone!

Yep, Saturday I finally did it! I cut off eight inches of my hair. It really needed it so bad. I hadn't been getting it trimmed on a regular basis like I should have and since my hair is so curly I had some bad split ends. I actually didn't want but about six inches cut off, but the girl I got to cut my hair just took off!!! She kept saying, "Trust me"...and to be honest, I do really like it and it feels so much better and healthier, but it is still taking some getting used to!!! Though, I plan on getting it trimmed regularly so that I can grow it out again! Before it was at my waist b/c I could reach my hand around my waist and play with the ends of my hair...now it's just above my bra strap!! I'll have to get Michael to take a picture of it so I can post it! It really does feel so much softer and the ends even feel thicker, too!!! I can't believe it's all gone, though! Michael said it made me look younger...hee hee!!!!

It's so pretty outside today!

I wish the weather could stay just like it is right now all the time. It's cool enough for a light jacket and the sky is blue! I love it. Our weather here has been all over the place the last few weeks. It'll be nice to get some constant temperatures soon!

I have so much to do this weekend. Tonight Michael is going to be heading out of town and I am going to meet up with friends for dinner and an evening of catching up! Saturday I have to study b/c I have a test on Monday (no, I won't be just starting...I've been studying), and I have to pick up mother's gift from me and my sisters. (Mother - in case you're reading - NO CLUES!) We're also getting together to cook lunch for her, but we haven't decided if we're doing that Saturday or Sunday now. We'll see! Another tentative plan for Saturday evening is to get together with some girlfriends, either out or at home with good movies - all after I study some more! I also have laundry and the floors to c…

I am turning into a weekly blogger...

though I don't mean to be. I just have so much work to do that I don't get anything personal done at work (which is the why it's called work, right?) and at night I am usually studying so I don't get any blogging done there, either. This weekend I got to study in the country! We went up to East Texas for the weekend and while Michael went off fishing I stayed behind at the trailor and did homework and studied! My parents were there, too but they did their own thing while I studied. It was very relaxing and I was able to get a lot done.

I finally got my first test grade back. I have to admit I was a little disappointed. I knew there was one problem that I was unsure about, but when I received my test back I saw that I made a couple of avoidable errors on other questions that ended me up with a B for my first test. :( Oh well...it was still higher than the class average! That made me feel a little better about it. When our professor passed back our test to look at she sa…

Happy Valentine's Day!

One year ago today Michael proposed to me!!! We've been married now just over four months!





I hope you all have a wonderful Valentine's Day!

Michael has been working overtime this week...

going in at 5:00. Work for me has been so busy that I have been working longer hours, but since I am awake when he leaves anyway, I decided rather than stay so late every evening at work to just come into the office early instead. I get here anytime between 5:00 and 5:30 and I can't believe how much work I can get done by the time everyone else gets here. When I arrive there is no one else on my floor, my phone doesn't ring, I don't get an email alert every five minutes - it's calm and quiet and I am productive! It also gave me a few minutes to write this today! I haven't had a chance to get on my blog at work much at all in weeks - not even at lunch b/c usually I'm working or studying during that time, too. And when I get home at night I really don't sit down in front of the computer that much - Michael is usually on it!!! :)

So...it's nice to have a moment this morning to say hello to everyone, too! So...HI!

Michael is also going to be working this wee…

I had my first test last night!

I really think I did pretty well on it. There was only one section that I struggled a little bit with! On the way home I called my friend who is about to graduate with his Masters in accounting and he assured me that once I got through this class it was all downhill from there! I find that hard to believe since the 500 level accounting classes I'll be in sound so intimidating, but if that's what he says, I love to believe it!

Tonight I am going to try to find out the answers to the section that I had such a hard time with. You would think it would be the actual problems that were hardest, but in fact it was the opposite for me. I find the problems so much easier...remember word problems from algebra? That's what I relate them to. The hardest part about them to me is extracting the data from the scenario - once you figure out what's what you should know what to do with it. The two chapters this test was over covered current and long term liablilites - primarily warranty…

Ah...a moment to breathe!

Between work and school I haven't got many. I don't know why, but the same time I started school work all of a sudden got busier than ever. My team is now complete, but I am running from one to another trying to get them settled in - now Ron's team is slowly coming in, too. He got his first two girls last week. Not only that, but accruals and work for the divestiture is all due when I get back next week - yeah, I'm off today, it's my Friday!

As for school, Monday is my first test. I actually feel pretty confident about it, too. I have been studying hard and the homework seems to be getting easier - practice, practice! I haven't studied today, though. Michael and I hit the floor running this morning. We had a lot of errands to do, including finally getting our DL and SS updated - well, he didn't need to update his SS, but he lost his a while back so he got a new card. We also bought some new additions for our flower beds and I bought a lemon tree today! I RE…
