Catching Up

I realize I have not written a real post in a while. Truthfully, I have sat here many times lately wanting to "bear my soul". I have time and time again started and deleted posts. Mostly, though, I have just not written what I want to because it will take too much energy. So I figure I'll just go with a quick recap.

-Been busy with school and work. Lots of trips to the hockey rink with the kids. Let me tell you, just when you think it's freezing out and can't be any colder, step into a hockey rink. Better yet, step into the "warm room" at the rink. Then you will realize what cold really is!

-We have so much snow, it's enough for 4 winters! If it never snows again this year I will be happy. Honestly, the snow banks make driving so dangerous!

-I have hardly taken any pictures lately. I started a photo blog, but I am having issues with Lightroom and watermarking. Too many crazies out there...I don't want to chance putting up pictures on a photo blog without watermarking them.

-When I graduated from college in '09 my parents gave me a trip to Disney with my mom and sister. The problem is we never really had time to go on the trip, and my mom wanted to save up more points on her Disney card. Anyway, we are going the end of March. We will spend 3 days in the parks and 3 days on a Disney Cruise. The ship is brand new this year. Seriously check the ship out! I am mostly looking forward to the warm weather and going to Animal Kingdom. It will also be great for my sister to get away. Life has been so hard for her lately.

-I will be done with my Master's Degree in just 5 months. I am so ready to be done with our educational system! I think it fails us in so many ways. Don't get me wrong, I know there are many things the system does well, but I also think there are so many holes that should be and can be fixed.

That's all for now. Hope everyone is doing well. I am trying to catch up on some of my blog reading, too.

I'm off to the hockey rink to freeze my butt off (if only).

Peace out!

Holy cow! done in 5 months!! I can't believe it. And a disney vacation . . . lovely. I bet they don't have piles of gross black/brown snow/slush blocking the view of oncoming traffic from every corner.

If that freezing your butt off plan works, let me know. Because it sounds faster than Tony.

I found your blog from a blog of a blog (amazing how these blogs spread lol)

I am commenting because of your degree choice. I just graduated with my AAHSM and would love to pick your brain about the career field. I was going to UOP but am going to change to a local state university but I have not found one that has Human Service Management as a degree. I was thinking of changing my degree to Social Work ... but am still not sure!

In just a short time the freezing temperatures and snow will be a thing of the past for you! You'll be in the warm sun on the cruise and trip! How exciting, and fun to have something like that to look forward to.
