Back to school AKA work!

I can't belive how fast my spring break went by. I only had 1 day of doing nothing and for the life of me I can't tell you what I did do!! The bright side is I am past the midpoint for the semester so it's all downhill now.
I started my second cake course last week. This one is Fondant and Gumpaste (sounds yummy, huh?) It is easier to do than buttercream! I actually like the look more. We have to "design and create" a cake for our last class. I will post pictures once I decide what to do. I am not sure if I want to keep going in April or take a month off. I have to have physical therapy on my right shoulder/arm (and lower back) so it hurts to do too much right now. If the pt doesn't work, I have to have surgery. Needless to say, I do NOT want to do that so I am really "babying" my arm.
I guess that's all for now...

Spring Break!!!

Finally!! I didn't think this weekend would ever get here. I am posting some pictures of AJ and my class projects. We are heading out to the observatory to watch the lunar eclipse tonight. I hope you all have a great weekend.

Over already?

I can't believe the weekend is already over. It really just started....
We managed to get the majority of the house cleaned, still have a couple of rooms and some laundry to do. I am on spring break next week so I want to get the house clean so I don't spend all week cleaning! I will post some pictures this week once I get my grading caught up.

Have a great week...

And the winner is....

AJ! He won a blue ribbon for his science fair project tonight. I will post pictures as soon as I can get them off the camera. All of the students did a great job!
I am so glad the weekend is here, I am so tired. I have not been home a single night this week and I can feel it - plus my house looks like a tornado hit it (actually, I think a tornado would even avoid it right now). I have nothing planned for tomorrow except AJ's regular visit to the lab. I plan to cross stitch and watch TV - assuming I can find something during the day to watch.

Let the weekend begin...

Ever wonder

why women can't put on mascara with their mouth closed?
why you don't ever see the headline "Psychic Wins Lottery"?
why doctors call what they do "practice"?
why the man who invests all your money is called a broker?
why Noah didn't swat those two mosquitoes?
why they sterilize the needle for lethal injections?
why they don't make the whole plane out of the material used for the indestructible black box ?
why sheep don't shrink when it rains?

if con is the opposite of pro, is Congress the opposite of progress?

Some funny label instructions:
On a Sears hairdryer: Do not use while sleeping. (darn, and that's the only time I have to work on my hair).
On some Swanson frozen dinners: "Serving suggestion: Defrost." (but, it's "just" a suggestion).
On packaging for a Rowenta iron: "Do not iron clothes on body." (but wouldn't this save me more time?)
On Boot's Children Cough Medicine:"Do not drive a car or operate machinery after taking this medication."
On Nytol Sleep Aid: "Warning: May cause drowsiness." (and...I'm taking this because???....)

I don't blame the company. I blame the parents for this one: On a child's superman costume: "Wearing of this garment does not enable you to fly."
On the tag of a reversible jacket: "Wash inside-out" (which way would that be??...)

My First Post

Well, it's a start anyway. I have found there is way too much I want to add so I will have to rotate my pictures on the site. So, this should be fun. Please post any comments to the site as only friends and family will see them.

It is rainy and 64 degrees here today, not your typical February day...must be global warming (I also think that is why my car wouldn't start on Monday). Munchkin managed to stay at school all day today. She has been sick since Friday with a viral infection and she has been miserable. I just hope AJ doesn't get it. We had AJs party on Saturday which went really well. He made off like a bandit. He has more money than I do now and his will last him longer than mine will me. "Somebody's Gotta Say It" came out yesterday and I can't wait to get my copy. I know I am going to enjoy this book. I had my next to last Wilton class last night. I am going to post pictures of my first cake and some other stuff we made in a couple of days. The kids are here so its time to begin the afternoon drill...take care!
