"The roots of education are bitter, but the fruit is sweet." Aristotle

Okay so lately I've been feeling like school with never end......NEVER!!! I know that by this time next year I'll be in the home stretch. But right now I feel like I'm overwhelmed and just plain sick and tired of it all.

I've been doing school non-stop for the past....oh....6 years. Now granted in that time I've completed my AA, my BA and half of my MBA. I've put myself in in debt for this and right now I feel like I'm slipping. I guess that's normal at times when you've kept up the pace I've kept up for as long as I have but I'm running out of steam.

Oh well, maybe if I get a weekend in a few months it will make a difference. Here's hoping. Till then pressing on. What else is there to do right, it's not like it's in me to quit.

Black and Gold

Okay so in a stunning victory of 45-14 My New Orleans Saints have beaten the Cardinals and advanced to the next and final round of the play off's where they will meet the Vikings (who beat the Cowboys today) next weekend. For the second time that I remember the Saints are poised to go to the the Super Bowl. The last time they were defeated by the Bears. This time the Vikings stand in the way of the trip to Miami. I know that next weekend I will be on the edge of my seat as I watch Drew Brees attempt to lead the team I have loved and cheered for my whole life to their first super Bowl appearance.

I wish my Dad was alive to see it. Although a native of New York, he always watched the Saints, usually didn't have anything good to say about the number of games that were lost every year and how they didn't know how to play football. He always laughed at me when I was a kid putting aside my dolls to watch football. Never agreeing on the same teams, and never agreeing about the Saints.

Well this seems to be their year, and as I hope for victory next weekend and a trip to the Super Bowl, if we don't make it there is always next season. As most people from New Orleans, I was born a Saints fan, I'll die a Saints fan and it was never about the number of games won or lost but the heart of a team that is connected to the heart of a city that will always be home.

It's effing cold and why do they keep saying "snow" and "Florida" in the same sentence

Hey so we're in the new year and lots of wonderful things are happening.....Um, ya I want to talk to the writers of this damn soap opera cause we need a better story line. If I was writing it, we wouldn't be too hot and wouldn't be too cold somewhere around 70ish would be good. I would have a mega hottie for a love interest that adored me and a bad boy on the side vying for my attention and I would be no bigger then a size 10. Oh and I forgot the amazing job that pays more then enough to pay all the bill and have money for random trips to NYC when I wanted. Yup ladies and gentlemen, that's my dream life.

Reality Check is that I'm really a 18 and shrinking (it's better then the 20 I was last year), there is no one except my friends and my spawn that adores me and no one vying for my attention, the job is okay and deals with the bills but there are no trips to NYC at random and right now it's fricking cold. At least we have heat at work again. The week of Christmas the heat went out at work, now I didn't think much of it since I was on vacation but damn it was cold the beginning of this week when I came back and there was still no heat. We got heat back yesterday. So tomorrow it's supposed to have a high of 30. I live in the middle of Florida and the high is supposed to be 30.......They said snow and Florida in the same sentence twice this week... I gotta tell you I'm good with just cold, I don't do snow unless I'm just visiting it. I live in Florida for a reason.

Well that is all the happening, oh and my next semester is starting on Monday......I have 6 more classes after this to finish my Master's. YIPPY!!!!!! Look for more "OMG" updates over the next 8 weeks as I enter a semester from hell.

Ciao for now Luvs.

Happy New Year

Welcome to the first day of the rest of your life.....Okay well the first day of 2010 anyway. So what is in store? Who knows really but it isn't what was past, that's done. Last night was awesome, good food, good friends and good times and good fireworks. Over all it was an amazing night. So with an amazing night like that to finish the year off it just goes to reason that we would have an amazing year.

I'm claiming that we will, I know that I am going to do what I can to make my year wonderful for myself and my spawn and well if anyone else wants along for the ride come on.
