almost missed it!!

thank you Fabulous K (a blog I stalk) for reminding me!!!

Earth Hour is tonight from 8:30pm to 9:30pm -- all you have to do is turn off your lights for one hour -- TONS of cities around the world are doing it to show how much energy can be saved in an hour to combat global warming. It's so simple!

Last year Emily and Christa came over and we played board games by candlelight -- I don't know what we'll do this year, since I've only got 4 hours to plan -- maybe Pete and I will do what we had originally planned -- shrimp kebabs on the grill -- and just dine by candlelight.

If you are wondering where I'll be for the next two years....


My letter of acceptance arrived last Wednesday, I've just been behind in posting. I'm excited and nervous and scared all at the same time, but am hoping I will be able to work to deserve the spot I've earned in the program (130 applied, 25-28 were accepted).

So, the next time I'm in the workforce, (fingers crossed) I'll be a Speech-Language Pathologist!!

taking a break

I'm about halfway-through writing the first-draft of my Graduate Writing Requirement research paper (due tomorrow). I've been terrible about updating this little 'ole blog, but it's because I've been super-busy -- honest!!

I even have some little pictures and things all ready to go from when I was going to blog a few times this weekend but remembered it would be a better idea to study for my Diagnostic Procedures midterm (which was this evening at 6pm and *so* didn't deserve all the stress it caused me).

We are on the verge of Spring...I can just feel it. When I got out of my class this evening, it wasn't quite dark yet -- and all my catalogs and magazines are showing the cutest Spring/Easter things:

chocolate umbrellas and little feather duckies -- almost makes me WANT april showers!

...and on sunday I read the sweetest post-secret:

Alright, I guess I better get back to Evidence-Based Practice in Health Care and its Importance in Guiding Clinical Practice in Communication Sciences and Disorders (exciting, I know)
