I haven't really felt the need to update the blog in a while. We went up to Utah for a week last week and that was fun. We saw as many people as we could squeeze in to a week. It's not easy trying to see everyone you love in a place you lived for half your life (or your whole life, in Glen's case). But we did get to see our family which was the best part! We spent some time with my sister Caitie and my brother Dayton and his family. We also got to have dinner in Salt Lake with Glen's sisters, minus his littlest sister, Marianne. We went to The Spaghetti Factory and I shamelessly ate every bite of my garlic mizithra, which is just like their usual mizithra with spaghetti except it had garlic, bacon and mushrooms.... I want some right now.
Glen has officially applied to grad school! I am so excited! He still has to get accepted to ASU and then apply to the actual program but I know he will get in. He is so smart and has so much potential. Most importantly, he is most happy when he is in school learning about the subjects that most interest him. The 9 to 5 just isn't for him.
I am taking a mid-term this week for my abnormal psychology course. I'm not really prepared but I'm working on it. I just want to get these courses over with. I have decided that I don't care if I get a B. Bs are just fine. This means I can stop stressing so much about getting As. I started a horrible English course two months ago and I am not even one tenth of the way through it. I gave up about a month ago. There are so many freakin' papers for this course and I am pulling my hair out trying to understand what this professor wants. I have completed two assignments but I have to turn in the first three together and I haven't even started the third because the premise of the paper is so convoluted. I wrote a paper on my opinion of what the most important aspects of rhetoric are. Then I wrote a cover letter and resume. Now I have to write a paper on how my first two papers used my theory of rhetoric that I wrote about in my first paper on rhetoric and I have to use my theory of rhetoric while I write about it. If anyone would like to write this paper, let me know.
George and I have cold this week. He got it in Utah and gave it to me when we got home. This means I have not been able to jog all week. I want to go but then I wake up at 5 am to go and my throat hurts and my head feels foggy. I keep thinking I am better and then I wake up like that and realize I really shouldn't go jogging.
Anyway, life is great! I feel good, I feel great, I feel wonderful.
Can you still call an 18 month-old a baby? Well, he's my baby and he's hilarious. He does and says some funny things. I needed to go to the bathroom so I paused Sesame Street and took George with me. When we got back I couldn't find the remote so I said, "George, where is the remote?" He said, "Mo?" and started giggling. Then he pulled it out from behind my laptop where it was about a foot away from me and held it up and said, "Der it dis!" Like, "Mom, you are so dumb..." He takes after his momma in that department. Tomorrow we will ride off into the sunset on our way to Disneyland. I watched a documentary on the park with George so he could see some of the rides and maybe recognize them when we get there. I also had him watch Nightmare Before Christmas to get ready for the Haunted Mansion. He put his hands over his ears when it first started and then he loved it! I really hope he likes to ride the rides and doesn't just cry the whole time... I love this boy more than I thought I ever could. He's my best friend (after Glen, of course)!
