New Fridge Day!

We get our new refrigerator today! I'm very excited, let me tell you. Last night I cleaned all the magnets off the old one and it looks so empty and clean! I keep wanting to put the magnets back on because it looks lonely, sniff sniff. I can't wait for the new one, although I am a bit concerned that it won't fit through our doors.... I measured the back door and it's 27 1/2'' wide, the new fridge is 31'' wide. Hmmmmmm.... guess that's why I'm paying someone else to deliver it and haul away this piece. I figure they can always take off the fridge doors to buy a couple inches, right? Here's hoping.
Not much else happening these days, Joc bought a new car (I should say we since I'll be paying the bill too but she drives it.) A Ford Escape (say it like Dory does in Finding Nemo, it's funner) and traded in her lemon of a car. It's nice and fun to tool around in. The color is copper technically but I think of some pukey red when I hear copper so we call it burnt orange, that better qualifies it. I'm a little jealous of the new car thing but my car is perfectly fine so I won't be trading it in any time soon. Bummer.
You know, I wrote a bit ago about being excited for my new class and now that I'm in week 3, yeah, not so excited anymore! Jeez. The honeymoon phase is over, now I have to do some serious reading. Wish me luck, off I go.

Christmas 08... or MLK jr day...

Well, the Gable girls (plus David) finally managed to find a weekend to get together to celebrate our Christmas exchange. It was also conveniently, MLK jr. weekend... so that worked for our celebration too. Nothing overly celebratory but it was nice to be all together again.
We did go check out a group of women singers called Earthworks women and it was actually pleasantly surprising. I enjoyed it very much, some exceptional singers, who needs American Idol?
I attached some pics that I snapped, hope you enjoy! You can also check me out on Facebook for other pics (i'm relatively new on there so look me up!)
Stay warm out there!
Happy Inauguration Day!!

New Class!

I'm a nerd, I know this and that's why it is okay. I admit to enjoying school, sure I roll my eyes appropriately when stressed by it and talk poorly about it when it enrages me, but I like it. I like the regularity of it, the expectations of it and really, the busy work it creates for me. It guarantees me work throughout the week. Today, is my first day of the Spring semester and my class is gonna be a good one, Curriculum design. I know, I lost most if not all of you at "I enjoy school" but this is going to be a great class, I feel it! It's totally relevant to what I want to be when I grow up and how I want to teach. I'm so anxious, I might even start the reading today even though it's not due to start until Wednesday evening.
Didn't I say I was a nerd, now I've confirmed it for everyone who shook their heads no. I am and it's okay. Now, I have to go read... leave me alone! (c: hee hee

Life 102

Greetings and Happy New Year!
Just uploaded a few shots from the last few weeks of life at 225 Baynton, nothing much happening these days.
Had dinner with my old (not in age but in length of time as friends) friend Sara, who had a good time playing Tyra Banks with my camera and in front of the camera...believe me I only uploaded two here but there are plenty more in my computer!
And then the ever adorable, totally cute and lovable nephew of mine, Lucas. Rockin' out on the drums! Love him!
Hope all are well!
