This was a very nice week. Mom and Bob were out of town for the beginning of the week, and Sara spent Sunday night at a friend's house at a sleepover. So Matt and I had a ncie quiet Valentine's day. We rented a movie (Ghosts of Girlfriends Past, which was very sappy and romantic). I made roasted fingerling potatoes and my first attempt at Beef Wellington ( The pastry came out a bit soggy, but other than that it was really realy good!

I started my new job interning at the Pulminary Phsician's Group in Syracuse, and I LOVE it. The job is interesting, and the women in the office I work with are incredably patient with my constant questions, and great to be around. I'll be interning there at least until I take my certification test on the 6th of March. After that, I'll be in job search mode (but still working there 'till I find something permenant).

I did actually have time to do some clay work this week. I finished a cute little lizard necklace, which I think I may keep for myself, since a few of his toes got a bit darkened in the kiln.

I also worked a bit on my Dragonfly necklace. The clay part is finished, but I cannot get a pattern of beads I'm happy with for the rest of the piece.

I have a few ideas on what I want to do, now that I've gone out and gotten some more seed beads.

Wow, another one of those month long Blog gaps. Well, the time HAS been put to good use. I've been spending most of my free time studying. I have my national certification exam on March 6th. The test is in Cooperstown (which is a couple hours away) at 8 am on a saturday. So, Friday after Matt gets out of class we're heading over to Cooperstown. We're going to go sightseeing (mom says there are a lot of nifty antique/collectable stores there to browse), have a nice, quiet dinner (mom is ALSO watching Sara while we're gone) and staying at a hotel for the night. 51/2 hour

I also have an internship I am straing this week, so hopefully by the time I pass my test I can have a job lined up. Matt starts SU in the fall which is NOT going to be cheap. We want to get him through his master's with no student loans, which means searching for financial aid, and saving everything.

Last week was my birthday, which was very nice. Mom got me an ice cream cake and Sara wrote (and sang) me a was SOOOOO cute! I wish I had had a video recorder!

We rented and watched Cloudy with a Chance of meatballs last nigth for Sara, and I must say it was one of the cutest kid's movies I have seen in awhile. Not only does it have Mr. T in it (which automatically makes anything awesome!) but it was really sweet and didn't have a ton of those "stupid" scenes/moments that seem to pollute most kids movies, where you have to be 5 to enjoy the raw retardedness of what is on the screen.

I'm finishing up some housework then mom and I are going clothes shopping. Seems I can't work in a medical office wearing sneakers and t-shirts ><. Blech, I HATE to clothes shop (and I don't even wat to start in on the fact I have to go get my hair cut/styled too). At least I don't have to start wearing make up...I draw the line there!
