ONE STEP AT A TIME!

“ That’s the beauty of a secret, You know you’re supposed to keep it” -Halsey

 

The class is officially over and I have another “A”. Thank fuckin gods, it is all done. 20 weeks is a long time for that 2-part class. It is now behind me and it is on to the classes considered to be more fun. I am actually really excited for this next course – Social Psychology.

ONE MORE CLASS TOWARDS MY DEGREE!!!

 

I had my monthly pain clinic appointment Wednesday and we discussed my fatigue and exhaustion lately. Apparently this goes with Fibromyalgia, chronic pain, and types of arthritis. There are days lately that I can barely get out of my own way and I feel like no matter how much I sleep; it is never enough. It is painful on my body, only adding to the sheer frustration I have with it all. I am down 6.5 lbs. since my last visit though so I guess that is a good thing. Especially considering I was not totally careful through the holidays and my birthday. I guess I did something right however! I think I need a full body transplant. Maybe that will help……NAH! I like the way I look and who I am so I guess I will just keep on pressing through it all!

 

I almost have things back to their places since Xmas has ended. ALMOST. Doing it piece by piece is a pain in the ass but the best I can do. I am working room by room in my house to throw things away…spring cleaning in winter. But I feel better tossing the junk out and opening up some space. I need a new couch though. Mine is definitely on its way out. But tax time is coming and I love that almost as much as Xmas. Anyone else look forward to their tax returns?

QOTW: We keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things, because we’re curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.” -Walt Disney

 

Popcorn Worthy: The BFG was my favorite book growing up and the movie is so worth it! Watch it a few times like we did! <3 I cannot wait to see A Monster Calls! Liam Neeson does the voice of the monster in it!

 

Press Play: Carole King has been stuck in my head. I love her album Tapestry Revisited. Amazing remakes of timeless classics! It’s Too Late is an awesome song!

 

Kitchen Kauldron: Tonight we are having crock pot spiral ham and mashed tatos. The house smells like brown sugar and pineapple!

 

Bean’s Wisdom: “You should put your feet up, lean back, and turn on your vibrator!” (spoken as I sit in my new recliner with a massage feature. We were laughing so hard I was crying and my ribs hurt. She had NO idea why it was so funny but it was hysterical.)

 

Weekly WTF: Do school districts understand that 504 Plans are agreed upon documents and signed to be used legally in a school? This is the second child I am battling the school district with and I am so tired of people thinking I know nothing because I am not an educator. FIRST OF ALL, I am her mother. Second of all, I know more than they think. Assholes!

    Hey SIN!

    The BIG A, congrats, that is super. Way to Fight Thru that 20 weeks, wow that is a loooooong class. I’m sure another A is on the Horizon in the next class

      She is a spit-fire….just like me!

      The class was actually one class but split into two pieces. It was grueling but I did learn a lot and my instructor was amazing. I have had pretty good ones so far.

      I am now embarking into the world of social psychology and focusing on how people work in the world around others. It is fascinating and so exciting to me. I love it! I cannot wait until I have my Masters and I can work as a forensic psychologist. I have already begun looking at Doctorate programs and talking to my adviser on what happens after I graduate, despite having a bit more to go!

      I love learning!

      BTW: IS IT JUNE YET!? I wanna come play on Sunday!!!!

    I can’t think of BFG without saying “Big Fucking Giant” in my head.
    I decided to go through all of my shazams and add them to the Furious Pub Jukebox. I got from jun 2010 to jun 2011 and it took me 3 hours.
    We should start YouTubing recipes!

    If you haven’t hit the 10.00 button yet (not Frank cause he did) THEN FUCKING HIT IT BEFORE WE CLOSE SHOP!
    Good NEWS! Chat is back….hopefully not for a short time.
