The time has finally come. School has begun. For some reason our first day was listed as MLK day and nothing was available and of course the school was closed. What's up with that? I found my Speech workbook yesterday on the program's main site. And then finally today one of my classes showed up on my Blackboard site. So at this point I atleast have both of my workbooks but I am waiting for my Speech class to show up as a course on the Blackboard site. According to the college I'm registered and good to go but they are extending registration for the class through this week, which I think may put a small glitch in the schedule to begin with. I probably lost you through that. Whatever, I got my first week's schedule done today and I hope to get more done tomorrow with having the day off. And we're off....
Just so you all don't forget, David's Birthday is Thursday. He's going to be 25. I can't believe it. Weren't we just in high school still dating at the age of 16 and 17? My how time flies. But at least we're having fun. We're going to celebrate with something small during the week. More than likely Chili's since that's one of his favorite restaurants. And then we'll head out somewhere this weekend. Probably Cheesecake Factory or PF Changs. Ya'll know I'm leaning for PF Changs but it's not my birthday and with both sets of 'rents going we don't want to make them drive almost 2 hours just for dinner. We'll see. It's not going to be an exciting birthday in regards to gifts this year. He's already received his gift from my 'rents and then my gift to him was a personalized Vikings jersey. That's kind of something that you need him involved in since you have to choose what color and the number. Now he just has to patiently wait for it to arrive.
I believe winter has finally arrived for us here on Lake Erie. We've had tons of rain and it finally changed over to ice/snow within the past 48 hours. The temperatures have also dropped a decent amount versus a week ago. But it looks as though we'll be in the 30's for the next week or so.
I have to tell you a story. I woke up this morning with no cats waiting at our bedroom door. That's odd, as they always are there to greet you saying, "feed me!" Jax finally arrived, but no Natchez. After getting dressed I decide that it's time to perform the hunt to find her. Lucky for me she was the first place I looked, in the basement. Poor thing spent all night down there. I'm sure the boiler kept her warm. Then this evening for some reason she hadn't been around. I heard the knocking of one of our closet doors, but think nothing of it because Lily was moving around in a bed next to the door. I was thinking that she was just knocking the bed into the door as she was adjusting herself. I then sit down to write this and I'm continuing hearing the knocking and finally put two and two together. No Natchez. And a door knocking. The hunt is on again to try to find what closet the knocking is coming from. Come to find her in the downstairs bedroom's closet. Crazy cat. Needless to say this isn't the first nor will it be the last that we must hunt her down. There was even one time where David and I were searching for her for an hour. We looked EVERYWHERE. Finally we found her wrapped up in David's closet blending in with all of his "junk". Ah, I love my kids. They keep my life interesting.
Natchez just chillin' while we frantically searched for her
