Monday Randomness

Life has been kind of crazy the past few weeks but I feel like it has the right amount of balance to it!

School's been kind of a whirlwind for me. I have three classes left which I should be able to take between the next two quarters so I can student teach beginning in March. However, one of the three classes wasn't being offered. I have felt like the school has really jacked me the past few months and I've just become a "number" to them. So once I found out I couldn't get one of the three courses I needed, I arranged for a meeting with my advisor. (which has been no simple task in months past) I was told that the class would probably be offered as there is a new cluster beginning in the fall which will have that course. My advisor also calmed some other fears I have had and it seems that everything is planned to go smoothly which means I can student teach in March. Today I registered for all my classes so as long as there are enough students registered for the new cohort, all will go well on my end. Fingers crossed because I have finally reached that point where I am ready to to be done with school and start this new chapter of my life...or at least start a real job again!!

Over the weekend I have definitely gained a sense of peace for where my life is going. Its a feeling I haven't had since about 3 years ago, even before the lay-off. I will share more about that in months to come but am really excited!

Jason and I have been out of town for the past 5 days, and I am so ready to get home to our Cooper (and Sam!). We left him at a DayCare/Boarding kennel which was great for day care, but not really my cup of tea for overnight stays. I worried about the little things, like: What if he plays too hard? (especially being there for 5 days!) What if he can't sleep? What if he stops eating? Who will give him his 10 minutes of cuddling/petting time in the morning which he HAS to have? What if they feed him too much/too little?! Amazingly, I haven't worried nearly as much as I would have thought. A huge thank you to Brooke who is picking him up tonight and taking care of him until we get home. I cannot wait to hug him and see if he's grown since we dropped him off. It amazes me how sad it made me to drop him off. He's s dog. Seriously Stephanie, a DOG. What will I be like with children!?

I was able to have my goddaughter Katie spend the night last weekend. It was a blast! She was such a joy to have around! I still plan to post about our weekend together. I will just as soon as I have time. :)

My back was giving me a lot of trouble the past month, was seeing teh chiropractor every other day and once even had to go back to back. It was pretty awful so I am really excited to report that it's been pain free for over a week! I'm hoping to start riding my bike or doing something physical in the next few days!

Well that was a pretty bland post but I wanted to get a little caught up so I could start writing again!
Happy Monday!

  1. I have a pet sitter who takes very good care of Brady, but it kills me to say goodbye and close the door on him. Luckily, she picks him and up, kisses him and loves on him, but no one does it like his momma!!
