Happy birthday to me! I am excited about the year ahead--the changes, the challenges, the adventures.

Celebration plans: Hubby is making me dinner tonight, then we are going to the outlets (b-day gift money burning a hole in my pocket--hehe) then to Baltimore to the Art Museum and out to dinner.

I guess 26 isn't too old to be excited about a birthday--I know someday soon I will feel "old" and not want to acknowledge a birthday, but until then: time to party!

Oh, and p.s. happy blog birthday too--it is a year old tomorrow.

Stress is....

your job depending on a "coming from behind" election just two weeks away...

40 billion different options when it comes to refinancing one's house...

one job that makes you take a week off the same week that your spouse is absolutely not allowed to take off...

a school that changes one's schedule (and therefore causing a later graduation date) multiple times with no apologies for messing it up...

I love Fall

It has been a long time since my last update--life has been pretty intense lately. Only 25 more days until the election and we are inundated with political ads, volunteering, poll numbers, and pundits predictions. I am very hopeful for the outcome of the election, I haven't lost total faith in the voters of the U.S. yet! It is sad how selfish and short sighted many people seem to be with their satisfaction of the current administration going up and down with gas prices rather than based on issues like the fact that we haven't had a terrorist attack in the U.S. since Sept. 11th.

In Ronald Reagan's words: "We need more Democrats in the Senate--like Custer needed more arrows."

Bill has been working so hard lately--he has been doing two jobs worth of work load at the office and has a really demanding MBA class. This burden rests on him, but I am trying to help out in any way that I can. We just have to keep the countdown going--five more classes until the degree.
