some good advice for everyone

Thanksgiving weekend was awesome. I got to relax for a few days and didn’t even look at most of the homework I brought home. I didn’t get quite as much sleep as I hoped for… because Julia slept in my bed with me on Thursday and Friday nights. Before bed on Thursday, my mom gave Julia some tips. She told her to tell Aunt Mooey not to snore, not to tickle her feet, not to wet the bed, and not to steal the blankets. At about 3 AM, I felt a little hand rubbing my face. I rolled over and asked what was wrong only to hear a groggy little voice say, “Aunt Mooey, don’t wet the bed.” We both giggled then went right back to sleep.

She woke up at about 7 AM on Friday and I was not ready to be awake. So I turned on some cartoons and went back to sleep. I was startled awake when Julia yelled, “look Mooey, there’s a mouse!” I shot up and looked around my room for the unwelcome rodent. I asked her to point to exactly where she saw the mouse. She pointed at the cartoon on TV.

This weekend was a nice preview of what Christmas break will be like. Only 3 weeks left!

Spa Day!

I spent yesterday at the spa with just the girls. It was a nice little break from reality and really great to spend some quality time with everyone. I realized while we were getting our manis and pedis how different our family is. Katie and I were trying to explain our connection to our... uh, pedicurist? (foot lady? professional foot scrubber?) It is a pretty strange relationship, but really cool that everyone is so close.

I have an outline, a powerpoint, and a presentation to put together for tomorrow. So it’s back to reality for now...

A Little Late...

I know it's late for Halloween pictures, but I had to share this. I remember thinking at the time that if I wrote on my blog, this would definitely have to go on it. So I went downtown for Halloween because it seemed like a good idea to go out on a Wednesday night. A sketchy guy was walking around taking pictures, claiming to be from the Buffalo News. A few days later, I checked the Buffalo News website, curious to see if the sketchball was actually telling the truth...

Yes Mom, I was in the Buffalo News doing the YMCA.

The Ultimate in Procrastination

It seems I have inherited the blogging gene that the rest of the family has. Or, should I say, I was peer pressured into it. Mikey set the whole thing up for me, which was the only thing really holding me back. He told me about it months later and I told him I’d think about giving in. So, here I am!

I am super busy right now. I know I always say I’m busy, but usually I’m just lying so you think I’m being a good student. This semester has been the hardest so far, and on top of that I’m taking the GREs in 2 weeks and I’m trying to get grad school applications ready. Don’t let me fool you though, I’m doing everything but work right now (hence the blog…) My room is clean, my laundry is done, and I refolded all the clothes in my drawers. So you can expect to see a lot of posts here for the next 3 weeks :)
