Hump Day Happenings

So, I'm a week late, and I'm very sorry!

Last week was crazy! Most know the issues we've been having with the roommate...well they came to a head a week or so ago. Accusations were made, the landlord got involved, his decision to add Jimmy & I to the lease in December didn't go over well with her, she said Oh Hell No, she gave her notice to vacate, and last Wednesday she moved ALL her stuff out of the house. By the time everything was said and done, I was too emotionally exhausted to even try to write my name, let alone sit at the keyboard. So, again I apologize and will make sure I get here at least every Wednesday evening to give you an update on the weeks happenings.

Classes are going well, I'm in week 3 of my second class, PSY202. Today I submitted an 8 page "Reflective Paper" including the title page, outline and reference page, summarizing my life up to this moment and laying out the plan for my future goals. It's in rough draft form, and I'm waiting on feedback from the TA so I can tweak it and make it all pretty for the final submission in week 5. So far my accumulative grade in this class is 92.42%. I didn't do too well on last weeks quiz, so my grade reflects that.

Miss Ravyn is beginning to crawl all over the house! Actually right now she seems to be doing the inch worm thing but still makes it across the room in nothing flat. Jimmy & I still take care of her 5 nights a week so Tanya can work, and we love having her here with us. Today we were talking about her and Papa said she's already got him wrapped around her finger, I can't wait til she can talk and bat those baby blues at him when she wants something, LOL!!

I'm still kinda disconnected from things, there isn't much that keeps my interest for very long at a time. So, I've been reading and listening to my music, burning candles and meditating. At first, I thought the seasonal depression was coming on early, but the weather has been beautiful and I'm still able to sit outside, so I don't think that's it.

Thanksgiving is next week, I think about my Mom a lot this time of year. Our holidays were so full of craziness, with cooking the big meal and then spending the entire weekend decorating her house for Christmas. Then there were those marathon shopping trips we used to go on. It's about 45-60 minutes from their house to the mall she likes to shop at so we'd get in the truck, and make a day of it in town. I know, crazy! But it was fun, and we laughed our butts off all the time.

I'm cooking here at the house for Jimmy, Tanya, Ed and Samuel, Tanya has to work that evening, so we'll be eating around 1PM and then I'll have the baby til she gets off at 10 or 11 that night. We're having some of the traditional things: turkey, stuffing (homemade, not StoveTop), mashed potatoes and gravy, dinner rolls, pumpkin pie and chocolate pie for Jimmy, with a few of my own concoctions as well...sweet potato casserole with a pecan crunchy topping, cranberry sauce and then leftovers! YUMMY

Well, I guess that's all for this week...I'll do my best to be back next week with another installment of Hump Day Happenings...sheesh, I gotta come up with a different title. That just sounds SO lame, LOL!!
