Ok, so I'm one of the crazy people who went out today and shopped. I first went to walmart, which wasn't bad at all. They just didn't have much stuff left by the time I got there. I then went to Kohl's and spent 30 mins in the cold and then 45 mins waiting in line to check out. I met some really nice people, who I had fun talking to. Then for some crazy reason I went to Target. You would think after those first two stores I would have stopped and gone home, no I had to get the four things I wanted to get at Target. So through the crazy crowd I went. I got what I needed and head for the line, to find out that the line was going in and out of the aisles. I went in line for an hour and 30 mins to get the four things I wanted. I did this because what the kids in my family want for christmas is important to me and saving money is even more important to me. With a baby on the way, I need to save all I can. Hope that everyone had a great and save holiday and if you went shopping today, that you were happy and safe too.

My thanksgiving is great and sad. It was great because we had an awesome turkey, but the side dishes we ordered were not so great. We worked through it. I also got to be with my husband. It was also sad because our son with grandma. He was having lots of fun and that made things better for me. Now that thanksgiving is over, the christmas mania begins. Good luck to anyone going out on black friday.

Well this week has not gone anyway I wanted to. My doctor said no traveling for me. I don't get to go to Minnesota with my family, but my mom still wanted me son to go. After lots of thinking, I agreed that my son should go spend time with our family and my husband agreed. Five days away from him is a long time. With my husband working long hours, cause he is in retail, well I wish I had to go to school this week. Never thought I would say that.

I think that the waiting for Thanksgiving break is the worst. All the people I talked to agreed that the break will help to refresh them for the remaining of the semester. I think that it will help me get better ideas for all the papers that I have to do for the end of the semester.

Oh man, I can't believe that spring registration is around the corner. I just got my notification of the date I can do early registration for classes. Since I am pregnant and due in the spring I think that I will have to pick my classes better. I know one instructor who said that they would be willing to work with me for when I have the baby. That makes me happy to know I don't have to stress about missing class to have a baby. I think that most of my classes may be online for me. This will also give me time with my son before I have our second child. It will also give me time to prepare for anything that I need to and open my schedule for my appointments. Drive from Iowa city area to Cedar Rapids for classes make my schedule hard to fit everything into. I have always worked things out because I want to complete school no matter what. Good luck to everyone and I hope that you get the classes that you want to.

Ok so I am so tried of writing papers and taking test. I swear that everytime I turn around I have a paper or test all most everyday. It sucks when you can't even have a minute to breathe. I am so counting down until Thanksgiving break because I will be running from school. I just need a day or two to breathe and do something for myself. I know that I am not alone. I hear talking people talking all the time when I am studying in the library or eating at lunch. Sometime people are even talking about it in class. I think that a day off every few weeks would be good. I think that will help students from burning out.

This month has been one that has been very busy for me. I have done like three walks, fundrasiers, and lots of work to help raise money for breast cancer. My family has breast cancer is our history and I have had many people I know who have survived and passed. This month to me is important. I get out there to support all I can. For anyone else who has been involved or donored, I thank you from the bottom of my heart.
