okay so I decided to take pictures of myself studying, therefor I must be procrastinating even more! But, alas by wed the 13th I will be done. IN the meantime I am getting through the psych content, immigrant issues, homelessness, ect the list goes on and on. On a positive note: I got a really good mark on my debate in my ethics class, and my situational transitions paper on homelessness and the elderly I got a pretty decent mark. So I am encouraged to do well on my finals! BTW I don't normally study on my bed- it's just for the self timer on my camera- I prefer the desk!

Click on this photo for more....I had so much fun- I got Michele to come with me (so Damien stayed home to put Z to bed). I think that all moms deserve a night out with one of their good friends and sometimes I forget that Michele doesn't have many chances to hang out people outside of the house (I live with her and Damien but I am thinking that maybe I need to take Michele out more often). At the Harrison Hotsprings Hotel at the Copper Room we have a nice buffet- I had lobster for the first time, ate amazing food (lots of seafood, mini potatoes, salads, chicken, and yummy lemon deserts!). I got home at a decent hour as I have to be up at 5 am for work tomorrow am. I am glad I got Michele to come with me tonight. Oh- and I work at a nursing home for those of you who didn't know- I work on the weekends and I love it!
