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 test...ug.

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 song...it 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!

Oh Mel! It's so good to hear from you. I'm glad your studying is going well and excited to hear about the test. I HIGHLY recommend Howe Caverns and The Farmer's Museum for sightseeing.

Is your internship in the city? I'm so excited for you! You'll do great. I love clothes shopping, lol, but totally agree about the makeup thing- I'll shower, shave, do my eyebrows and style my hair but that's IT. NO makeup for me (besides chapstick).

Post some pics of your new hair style! I'd love to see it!
