I am horrible about being a consistent blogger, having said that, I am going to just blog about some random things, as there really is no method to my madness.

School is going well although I didnt do as good on my last test as I would have liked too (BUMMER) I am still passing, and grateful for that! The thing  that gets me about tests, is that when our instructor hands them back and we get to look over them, usually the questions I get wrong are ones that I know, and when I see them, I am like DOH! Why did I choose that answer, I knew it was this one....Yadda Yadda.... So I was at a 92% and after that last test I went down to a 88 %, and it kind of hurt a little BLAAAAAAAAH, BUT I am stil passing, so that is really all that matters. Oh and I figured out that on my final I need to get 65 right, and can get 35 wrong to pass LOL

Yesterday my mom and I went out to Romeo, because we like the Salvation Army 2nd hand store out there, we always find a good treasure or 2, it gives us something to do that is inexpensive and we get to spend some time together. My youngest Brianna was with us, so I couldnt look around as much as I would have liked, I was more less trying to keep her entertained, but I did end up with a couple cool things.

This book that just caught my attention. It is called The Rest of My Life by Laura Russell Hunter it is a true story written by an 80 year old widow, recovered from the shock of having to move into a nursing home, she began regaling her family with stories about her life among the "ancient, Infirm, and odd" people at the Nursing home. At her daughter's suggestion, Laura started this journal, which grew into a sensitive, colorful, and revealing chronicle of this dauntless woman's life in the "Hopmeadow Home".  I read some of it last night, and I just really enjoyed it, cant wait to read more tonight. It is an old book, I couldnt find another copy of it online anywhere, but if you want to borrow it let me know. I think I like it so much because I love hearing older people tell stories, about times when life was different, I have worked with the elderly population many times through out the years , and I have always loved to hear about thier lives, and how they grew up. Old people are fascinating!

I shopped at SAMS club on Monday, and I came to the realization that I do NOT like goat cheese, the sample looked delightful, but ACK, goat cheese is not something I will try again.....

I did a little bit of looking into my Family tree. There is a reality show called Who do you think you are, and it helps celebrities trace their heritage back as far as they possibly can, I have always found genealogy to be pretty interesting anyway, and my sister has traced our family's History back to Germany. I went on Ancestry.com  and started just  A couple branches on my Family Tree I hope to spend more time on this someday, but as for right now, I am mostly spending time on school and studying, taking care of my family, and home.

This past weekend one of my very good friends got married, Congrats to you Sue Ann & Richie, You had a beautiful wedding, and I hope you two both enjoy many blessed years together ♥
