Funny how life changes in a matter of DAYS. My Nana called me today and told me that she and my grandfather are taking my mom, me, and my three sisters to L.A. over New Year's!!! I was shocked. I don't do well with emotional roller coasters, but I was GLAD to be on the ride for once today. I'm so excited...again, it's like God knew how much the Disney trip meant to me, and although we still aren't going there, He gave me a trip that is JUST as awesome. Thank you, Lord!! :)
I got my mantle done today for Christmas. I'll post pictures soon. I'm still in disbelief at the amount of work I have to accomplish before the semester is over...but oh well. It just doesn't seem right when you have to pick and choose what to do well on (like projects) and what to sacrifice for the sake of your sanity and afore-mentioned projects (like tests). Ugh. But I'm hanging in there. I even gave myself a little down time tonight and watched some episodes of "Designed to Sell" and "Jon and Kate Plus 8." I rarely do that, and it felt pretty good. Tomorrow I hit the road again with work and school. And, lest we forget, I have the big HANNAH MONTANA experience on Thursday! She was actually on Oprah recently.
Anyway, I'm off to get things ready for tomorrow. Does anyone else feel like they're a hamster in a cage running on that stupid exercise wheel? Running really fast and seemingly going nowhere...?
