It's 1 am and I'm awake. Anyway, I registered for classes Saturday and so far my schedule is as follows.

Mon: Survey of U.S History I from 5:30pm to 6:45pm

Tue: Algebra :( from 8am to 9:50am

Tue: English Composition I from 11:00am to 12:15pm

Tue: Intro to Human Communications 12:30pm to 1:45pm

Wed: Survey of U.S History I from 5:30pm to 6:45pm

Thur: Algebra :( from 8am to 9:50am

Thur: English Composition I from 11:00am to 12:15pm

Fri: no class

I'm not jumping for joy over all my classes . Algebra sucks and 8am sucks but I do enjoy history and human comm is a hybrid class that is taught partially on-line. Take note of how I did manage to strategically place my classes so that I would not have to miss class during Dragon Con. Next semester I should be allowed to self register on-line and I will be able to register earlier so class options will hopefully be better.

I have been waiting along time to go to college so I am happy and nervous.  It was for the best that I waited until now to attend college. Being a military wife and teenager mother was all I could handle at the age of 19. Maturity will be hopefully my ultimate advantage.

I feel like Willow in the opening of Season 4. Yay! School!

I'm thinking of getting a frog.......I blame Sabrina. She is always posting pics of her tree frog and now I want! 

Also, frogs are Good Luck.

The Frog has been a symbol of prosperity, wealth, friendship and abundance in some cultures; a symbol of fertility in others.

In the Native American culture of the Southwest, the Frog carries a piece of wood in its mouth, because the Mojave people believe Frogs brought fire to humans.

For the Romans, the Frog was a mascot believed to bring Good Luck to one's home.

The native Aborigines of Australia, believed that Frogs brought the thunder and rain, to help the plants to grow.

Frogs are also said to be effective in speeding up recovery from disease.

Among the ancient Egyptians and Greeks, Frogs symbolized inspiration and fertility.
In Egypt, Hekt, the Frog goddess, protected new-born babies, hence Frogs are symbols of fertility and birth.

The Frog is also said to attract true friends and to help you find long-lasting love.

Stuff to do.....

This is a brief Warning to Wayne don't read this post if you don't want to be tired and stressed at my list of stuff to do............... 

I had an OCD breakdown yesterday and cleaned out every room and every closet in the entire house and then when I finished that I cleaned out the garage. I started at 8:30am and finished at 6pm. I was exhausted and now I want to clean out the storage room in the basement. I have been feeling stressed lately and cleaning and organizing is physically exhausting but it helps me clear my mind mentally, literally and figuratively, "NO, I literally mean literally". Sorry HIMYM flash back, anyway cleaning is my Zen but today I am tired. I think I will go buy giant plastic containers today so I can start cleaning and organizing the basement tomorrow.

Wayne now has 2 giant piles of stuff to take off in my Dad's truck. Pile number 1 goes to Goodwill and pile number 2 goes to the dump and pile number 3 is so we can have a yard sale and use the money to buy costuming supplies for DragonCon.

When I'm done with the house it should be warm enough to do yard work. Pull weeds, put out pinestraw, and then plant lots of flowers and redo my herb garden. I would also love to plant tomatoes and peppers this year.

Oh, I also plan to paint the garage and stain my front porch this spring and then I'm going to spend the summer sitting on my porch drinking beer and doing nothing.

New Television shows that I really love....

From the website:

"Life," from Rand Ravich ("The Astronaut's Wife") and Far Shariat ("Confessions of a Dangerous Mind"), focuses on a detective who is given a second chance. Golden Globe nominee Damian Lewis ("Band of Brothers") plays complex, offbeat Detective Charlie Crews, who returns to the force after serving time in prison for a crime he didn't commit.

Crews' new lease on life has provided him with a Zen-like outlook, peace of mind and no need for vengeance, an attitude which can be challenging to maintain when someone he cares about is threatened -- or when he is investigating the mystery surrounding the murder he was falsely accused of.

Lewis is joined by cast members Sarah Shahi ("Rush Hour 3") as Dani Reese, Charlie's skeptical and demanding partner; Brent Sexton (HBO's "Deadwood") as Officer Bobby Stark; Donal Logue ("Grounded for Life)" as Captain Kevin Tidwell, and Adam Arkin ("Chicago Hope") as Crew's former cellmate Ted Earley.

I have decided on this Amber Sweet costume from Repo. I showed it to my mom and she says it will be easy to make plus I just love it. I have a few other costumes to do for DragonCon but I'm going to focus on this one first. Oh and I have contacts now to wear with all my costumes. YAY!! Going to Jo-ann's for fabric this weekend.

Blind as a bat

I can no longer get around the fact that I must go to the eye doctor before the end of the week. My vision has gone from bad to worse in the last month and I am having awful headaches. I am very blind so my glasses are very expensive and I hate to spend the money but I have no choice. I'm going to get a trial pair of contacts this time. My desire to do costumes for Dragon Con has made me decide to try contacts again. If I don't wear the contacts all the time it would be nice to have them for costuming because I can usually tolerate them for at least 3 or 4 hours.

Fun Stuff.....

Tomorrow we are taking the kiddies to see Coraline in 3D. First Taco Mac and then the movie. Sunday is going to be a wonderful 67 degrees and I plan to be outside doing anything. I'm so excited about the warm weather the cold makes me completely miserable.

Next friday Wayne is off work, my mom is picking up kids from school and we have no errands to run all day.  We'll probably go to lunch together and then to Best Buy to look at things we can't afford and then later Sweetwater and Friday the 13th with Ziggy and Meg. Dean is my favorite but I don't mind seeing a little or alot of Sammy on the big screen. I just hoping he takes his shirt off. Dean didn't remove his shirt even once during My Bloody Valentine and I was extremely disappointed. Sorry about the no shirt spoiler.

Oh I almost forgot Dollhouse premieres!! and Sarah Conner comes back! WooHoo!
