Here it goes...

One of the added bonuses of being a student means sitting in germ-infested desks and catching undesirable bugs. I'm taking it easy today- I've been plowed over by a cold and I'm hoping to knock it out fast with Vitamin Cs and Zinc because tomorrow is the big test out day in lab and Monday starts our clinicals. (Had orientation last week, now it's the real thing.)

The next five weeks are going to get a bit crazy. At least Ryan and I have opposite clinicals so he's able to be home with the kids on my clinical days and then I'll be home when he has his clinicals. I'm already looking forward to my clinicals being done and his beginning because I'll only have one day of classes at that point. So the last six weeks of the semester should be much. Easier. To deal with.

On a brighter note, we saw some beautiful fall colors on our drive to I******d yesterday- a good added bonus of having to make that drive every Thursday. I have to remember to take my camera along next week.

Well, the kids have broken into the stash of paper bags and are filling them at alarming paces with toys and treasures. Jack's lugging around five of them himself. Lydia's single bag consists of a pile of dress-up clothes that she scored from her auntie's house the other day (my sister found a huge bag of dress up dresses, shoes, crowns and wands for $2 at garage sale!) So for the past couple of days I've had a princess teetering around on plastic heels over here.

OOh. The kids are in for a treat today. I just was telling Jack- for the third time- not to monkey with the vacuum cleaner cord and I felt my voice giving out. Something tells me it's only going to get worse from here.

Have a good one!

Hope you feel better Sarah! It's hard to have a cold when your pregnant and not able to take much for it. And good luck with clinicals next week! :)

You have that tough Sisu in you, so I know you'll be fine w/ your challenging upcoming weeks:) What a find w/ the dress up clothes! As I write, the girls are fighting over the 1 ballerina suit- just hauled out the Halloween bag. And the bag stuffing- the other day I found dad's missing wallet under a kids bed...the stuff Chelsea has stuffed into those bags and purses and hides in corners over the least it helps explain why I feel so scatterbrained;)
