New Look

I made a few changes to my blog tonight. I was going to do this while I was visiting my Dad, however, I can't get either of my laptops to go online. Neither of them recognizes the dial tone on the phone line. I will take them with me and try to get them to work while I'm there.

I finally got my ipod working today. I had to restore it to factory settings and put all the songs on it again. I didn't put all my pictures on it this time though. I'm going to rescan them and get them totally organized before I do that again.

I look forward to seeing my Dad and my nephew again. It's difficult to go back there. That old saying you can't go home again rings true. Things have changed so much since Mom and Mike died. I don't think I could ever live there again. My nephew and I talk about the "good times". I do think that each day we live as long as we are healthy and have people we love around us are the good times. Some of those people may only be here in memory and spirit, but they never really leave us.

on to less morbid things.....

Damn! someone came when I wasn't looking and bleached my hair white, at least at the roots! LOL So I colored my hair tonight. It's back to its "natural" reddish brown. I've promised myself after I reach goal weight I'll get it cut short and dye it a darker red color. I have an appointment to get my nails done tomorrow. oh and I'll do a pedi tomorrow too. Gonna be looking spiffy when I go see my Dad! He hasn't seen me since I've lost 35 pounds. He'll be surprised to see me. I haven't told him I was coming!

Countdown to Graduation

Tonight was my last class for the paralegal program. Yesterday, my instructor emailed me the spreadsheet for the final exam, I did it and emailed it back to him. It wasn't difficult, just basics. I met a classmate and we went to Senor Loco's for dinner. Yeah, that kept me within my points for WW. LOL The countdown on the sidebar reads there is approximately 2 hours and 45 minutes left. I'll be removing the countdown around midnight-ish. I will be able to mark that complete, including the 4.0 that I wanted so much. We'll be getting our grades in a week or so. We will walk in October. The past 13 months went by fast. It seems it was just yesterday that we started. I'll be taking a couple of weeks off and then get started studying for the CLA exam. "Stick" and I will be having a once weekly get together to study. We both will make an outline and time frame of what we need to study. We have numerous books to use for studying. The school and program director was going to throw them in the trash,so we students took them instead. Many of them had instructors manuals. We'll be able to use the workbooks and then check our answers.

I'm looking forward to getting on with my life. Still sending out resumes and looking for a job. If I don't get one soon, I'll go back to nursing for a while, until I can get a paralegal job.

I haven't posted in a while and I'll be making upn for that. There are quite a few things I've wanted to blog about but didn't have time. Next week, I'll be visiting my Dad and will play catch up then.
