Just a few things I'm thankful for

I'm happy! This week has been a little on the cold side but it SNOWED! Every time I see little white flakes fall from the sky it makes me smile from the inside out. Of course I'm a winter baby so that makes me love it even more. I hope that I can go snowmobiling this winter. What fun that would be.

So I have a goal that I'm trying to reach. The goal might be stretching myself, but I'm determined to get it done. Now lets just see if I do. Recently I've been reminding myself that I CAN do it.

I received great news yesterday. As of a few days ago I had a bill that was due within the next few weeks. I knew there was no way possible for me to get the bill paid, but I was trying to figure out ways that I could come up with the money. Needless to say I was getting a little nervous but now I have no reason too. God has supplied my need and my bill has been taking care of! He provided for me even more than what was needed. Yes, we serve an amazing God.

I have plans for the weekend. I'm going to get caught up on sleep. Before I do that though I plan on ice skating sometime in the wee hours in the morning, working, and of course the dreaded homework.

Band is going to southern Indiana this weekend. I'm excited because I will be able to see some old friends that I haven't seen in quite awhile. I hope also that I get to see my family, but if not I will get to see them Wednesday.

Thanksgiving I'm looking forward to. I'm ready for the break that I will have from work and school. More than that I'm excited to spend time with family and none other than eating from the best cooks in the world. I miss my mom's cooking, but between Mom and Aunt Karen I will be able to know what real home cooked food is like again. I also am looking forward to cooking, something I miss doing here at school.

All we are missing now is SNOW!!!! I can't wait!

Early Morning Adventure

Friday morning I rolled out of bed around 4:30 a.m. to start my day. Around 5:00 a.m.Esther, T, and myself left for IHOP. We listen to Late Last Night songs on the way there,(which were silly songs) studied, and ate breakfast.

My pancakes :-)

The reason for this early morning excursion was to do some homework. I tried studying Thursday night for my test on Friday, but for some reason my mind couldn't process the information. So I had to do whatever it took to make it stick. That meant getting up at such an insane hour. I got a lot of studying done while there and was wide awake for the rest of the morning.
