Happy 4th of July!

Ahh, what a week it's been. My finals for my last block in school were due on Monday, and I got them in. Never mind the fact that I waited until the very last day to write one of them. I just had a really hard time deciding what to write about, and while writing is something that is usually easy for me to do, sometimes I have projects that I have to think about for a couple days before I actually sit down to write. I haven't gotten my grades back but I think I should do well. As long as my class grade doesn't go below a 94 I'll be set for an 'A'. If I go below that then it means I've done something really really bad. Fingers crossed! My GPA is sitting at a 3.82 right now, and it would be higher except for this dreadful nasty thing called...algebra. So, I'm trying to keep my grades high to bring my GPA back up to make up for the C+ I got in algebra. And I should be able to do it...just in time for my next algebra class in December. Sigh. Oh, and I know it's silly for me to worry about my GPA. I totally know that when I go to apply for a job, they're not likely to ask what my GPA was. And thankfully, there's almost no chance that they will ask me what I got in algebra. It's just a personal goal for me. I figure if I'm going to go back to school, then I want to do the best I can. And it hopefully will pay off in some way, particularly now when I'm having a harder time paying the tuition that my loans won't cover, maybe someone will actually give me a scholarship if I maintain my grades.

I finished those finals on Monday and Tuesday I immediately began my next block. This is the same day I came down with some funky stomach crap that my son gave me. Is it wrong that sometimes I think he's trying to kill me? I seriously felt like someone had run me over with a big truck. And then backed over me, and ran me over again. Like 5 times. Fortunately it was only a 24 hour thing, because it SUCKED!!
In very happy news, my Blog is officially updated. I am so happy with it. I could have never done this myself. I just don't have the know how to...trust me, I wish I did. However, just by sheer luck I stumbled upon Louise's blog, and even though I gave her very basic information about what I wanted, it was like she crawled into my mind and read my imagination because I couldn't have done a better job, even if I had the abilities she does. It's so...me. I then went and registered my blog name as a domain, so if you are hitting this site through the lorrix.blogspot.com address, please update your bookmark to reflect the new address, which is http://www.MidolAddictedKnitting.com because if anything, it will be easier to remember!

Clara will be turning 15 months old, this month. I can't believe it. She's such a character! She walked for a short period of time and then immediately went to running. She's outgoing, will wave and smile at anyone, and is very bold-if it can be climbed, she will climb it. If it can be crawled into, she'll get in there. She knows quite clearly what she can and cannot touch. She prefers to touch the things she's not supposed to touch, because it's so much more fun. Her favorite toy is a ball, and we can't go through any toy isle with a ball in it without her having a fit over it. And she LOVES loves LOVES her books! She's coming up with quite a vocabulary too, these days, but her favorite word seems to be "sip" and her favorite phrase is "what's that?" She's a smart little cookie, and never ceases to amaze me!

Well I'm off to the neverending circle of school work, ChaCha, laundry and trying to keep up with the mound of toys littered across my living room floor that, no matter how many times I try to clean it up, seems to only multiply.

Hope everyone has a safe and happy 4th!
