Happy Happy Birthday...

to my wonderful pseudo husband.

The big 3-4. (his birthday was actually Tuesday). I fortunately don't have school Tuesdays and he took work off so we went our for a fall foliage picture taking adventure on the motorcycle...damn near froze my.....hands off. Very cold. And there were almost no leaves changing along the delaware river.... but all in all it was fun,and we stopped in at a yummy restaurant and had lunch.

I love you, bob!

It's the spongebob cult cake-creepy!

If you live in the good old state of PA...please make sure you are registered to vote. The deadline is tomorrow. Remember, it is in our hands to vote for one of, if not the most powerful person on the face of the planet. That's HUGE. I am not even going to tell you who to vote for. Just do it! It is such a huge responsibility, and an honor to be able to vote, and it makes me sad to see people apathetic about it. So.... log on, or go to a government office and register to vote. Another day I will get into my politics, but for now...I just want you to register.....

By registering you are at least saying "I might vote, and I can vote" by not registering you are say "I don't care, and I won't vote." Registering is not committing... it's just the free pass to get in :)

Be responsible Americans.

I'm just going to pretend...

a couple of things... that

A) It hasn't been 3 months since my last blog, ya know that time when I swore that I would be the *bestest* blogger on the planet. AND I know you all are all thinking "yeah, she's said THAT before"...ok, so I suck at blogging, but I am willing to embrace that.


B) That the two dogs going nutso at my feet are just going to go away so I can type in peace.....please?

No such luck....

Aren't they cute?

'Nuff about them-- this blog is all about me right??? lol

School is going well. I managed to squeak out a 4.0 last semester which puts me on track into the honor roll and got me accepted into the international honors society. I will be transferring to one of 3 schools next fall, and I *think* as of right now i am on track to maintain my gpa. I was never this good in school- don't get me wrong I was always capable of being this good, but never put the effort into it. Now it's like I am being driven by some other force-- besides myself to get school done, and the absolute best that I can do. I feel like i took my life off hold for the first time in 8 years and I am finally living a dream I didn't know even that's cool.

An update on my sister for those of you who are interested- they did all the tests and scans and stuff and didn't find a tumor or the other disease it *could* have been, but obviously wasn't.... So, they are monitoring her very closely, and are doing more tests. They need to figure this out because she is not able to function like a normal person with the migraines she is getting, but her spirits are considerably better considering it isn't a tumor or the "other possibility."

My mother on the hand had several scares with her health this month. She is having heart problems. They thought she ahd several minor heart attacks, but it turns out they weren't (thank god) they are keeping a monitor on that, and she is having gall bladder issues. I wish she would take better care of herself, I worry that she really IS (she recently stopped takign it for a few weeks...thus causing many health problems) going to just stop taking all of her medication one day, and I am going to get that phone call that I dread every day of my life. She seems better when I am out there, but I can't babysit my mom the rest of my life.

Bob and Chris are both good. Chris started middle school this year, and it's very weird. We have had a few minor issues with school policies and the way they want to do things (that make NO sense), also they have the kids "tracked" which I hate...its just a way to make the moreabled kids get further and the less abled kids get further and further behind.....Bob is well...working alot and going back to school wednesday nights with me for english class. It's interesting to go to school with one's spouse, we are two completely different studying styles, and two completely different goals (I want an A...he wants to pass). It is VERY nice to have someone to study with though, and he is very helpful with my obsessiveness on my papers ( I do 6-8 drafts of things).

Thats about it thats going on here. I don't even have any pictures to show. I haven't really taken any since June (or uploaded them at least). Oh, and for those of you who were at August SAVE I wanted to send out the pictures that many of you asked for, and what I am going to do is upload them to snapfish and send you the link. You *should* be able to order copies of them if you want, if that doesn't work and there is something you want we can work something else out.

Miss you all!
