Monday Ramblings

Monday is over! Whoo. It went by fast. Mondays are usually good for me  - *knock on wood* don't wanna jinx it-- I was a little nervous going into work today…I was doing a new task today. New is always scary. I did okay though. I hit a few bumps along the way, but in the end it all worked out. I felt a little bad though because I could tell my boss didn't want to give up this task completely. Believe me though, I totally understand,  it's so much easier to do thing by yourself when you know what you're doing. I'm grateful though for being given the opportunity to learn something I know very little about.

So, what's going on? Not much really. Jake and I are coming down with a cold. I just ate a spoonful of honey and I'm sitting here with a box of tissues choking down some nasty tasting throat coat tea hoping it doesn't turn into a full blown sore throat/cold. It's that time of year though! I probably should just go to bed, but I need some me time!

I'm also busy with school. When I first applied, I had my positive pants pulled up way over my head, thinking I'm going to get honors, straight A's, do extra credit, be involved in everything….Hahaha. Now that I'm exactly a month away from the end of the Semester I realize the need to be realistic. I'm doing okay. Not straight A's but I'm passing so that is a plus.  All I know is that I'm doing the best I can with the resources and time I have. Now, if I were straight out of high school, free from any obligations such as work, and taking care of a child, that goal would be realistic. Now though, I'm happy with what I'm getting. Taking this English class was a slap back to reality…with 2 books to read this week plus 2 chapters in a third book, plus a 300 page book I have to read essentially by the end of next week in order to write my final 5-7 page paper on…I've decided I need to pretty much 'wing it' in every other area. I will be happy with any grade I receive in this class, as long as it is passing. Which I'm not worried about because my midterm grade was 85 and I don't think my paper was horrible, so I'm hanging somewhere in the 80's and that I'm happy about. I will be glad when it's over.

I'll need to celebrate. I've really been thinking about throwing a party or get together of some sort lately. Hearing all the conversations at work lately, I really feel like the most boring person on the planet. I used to have parties…not wild ones, lol…tame ones, just hanging out, eating, talking and having a couple of drinks. I miss doing that. This may be the perfect time. I've got to think about it. 

 What else? Hmm, I did a little bit of scrapbooking/paper crafting. I haven't finished that mini album I mentioned here  yet…I planned on showing it some time this week but I need to get some pictures developed which I have yet to have a minute to edit and send off to get printed. This thing I did today, took less than an hour. It's just a quote. I may hang it in my cubicle. I love quotes and sometimes I need reminders. 

Now I'm going to take a shower and browse Pinterest until my hair dries…I should probably read though, huh?
