Sure 'nuf

Did I tell you or what? Up .5.... About what I figured. Not going to let it derail me in anyway. I've had two really good days. I'm doing the broccoli & potsticker thing again as I write. Stuck in a bit of a rut Kate? I want to get the digestion going before Alicia and I head to swimming class. I need....NEED...to write 4 summaries for biology this week. How am I ever going to do it? How I ask?

Off the subject...and completely random....did you know that not everyone can smell asparagus pee? You require a particular chromosome in order to detect it. Weird huh? Or maybe it's just me? Have a great evening!

Wiped out!

Its almost 10pm. I just finished my paper on coronary heart disease. What a page turner this one is! Just a bit of sarcasm there.... I can't believe I finished the paper! I was really starting to panic about getting it finished. I'm so tired! I wish I could have accomplished 1 more this weekend.

Chris and I emptied out our storage unit this morning, then we celebrated my sister Judy's birthday ( I won't say the number Jude!) Don't feel sorry for her....she's leaving for Hawaii in a couple of days....without her sister, I might add. Aloha Jude!

I don't think I'm going to have a very good loss on the scale tomorrow morning. I ate out like 4 times this week. I tried to make good choices, however. I did have a piece of my sister's ice cream cake today. Also having my period. I'm just full of excuses aren't I!? I'll keep you posted...pardon the pun! Night!

Some extra protein....

Did you know that the average person will ingest up to 8 spiders during sleeping in their lifetime? I know...I know....I didn't want to know it either!

The results are in....

So I didn't tank the exam exactly....got a 78%. High C I'm thinking. Not exactly an A, but I knew that wasn't happening anyway. Last night we had our first lab quiz. Joe, my teacher, set up 20 stations around the lab. Each had a question. Most were slides of different things we've seen under the microscope before. Some models like the heart, brain, and skin. I think I aced it. Now I have to write 2 summaries this weekend, and somehow get the rest of my boxes out of storage before the $70 price goes up to $130. Not sure how I'm going to accomplish both.

Going swimming again tonight if anyone wants to join Alicia and me! You should have seen us on Monday. How dedicated are we? It poured on us, and was rather cold. We did it though! Good for us!

Have a wonderful day!

It's raining...and it's cold, but we're going swimmin' anyway! You should join us! It's just the best! I seem to be using a lot of exclamation points!!!

It is what it is....

Ok. Biology exam #3 is over. My whole body aches. We went to the anatomy lab for a "field trip" afterwards. I thought I could handle it, and perhaps it's because I'm so tired, but that was awful! I can't believe I have to take that class. How do I take that class? I still have the smell in my nose....and the image...gonna haunt me in my sleep! Can I really be a nurse? Really? Do I want to be? Deep questions....fueled by fatigue. Night! Going to bed!

Holy cow!

I lost 5.6 lbs this week! I can't believe it! That's awesome! I was really on track this week. It really works if you do it properly I guess! Way to start out my Monday! I have a ginormous biology exam tonight. I don't feel as prepared as I'd like....We have to go see the cadaver (spelling?) after the exam. Yuck! Have a great day!

Dinner is served....

Chicken potstickers and garlic broccoli for dinner. Yum! 4.5 points for 7 of them puppies! Thank you Trader Joe's! I had enough points to have 11, upping the anty to a tiny bit under 7. They were sooo good! I was hungry after taxing my brain all day with facts about mucous membranes and stuff! Now I enter the danger zone. The late night munchies. Please or please be good to yourself Kate! Any of you have some ideas?

Random fact of the day: Did you know that your skin varies from .5 to 6 millimeters in thickness, depending on what part of your body it is? Just thought you'd want to know....

French bulletin board

My son Chris and I recently moved into a new space. I had seen some French bulletin boards in catalogs before, but they were majorly expensive! I knew I could make it myself....so I did. What do you think? It was fun! I also took some antique buttons and made them into tacks to use on it. I'm happy with how it turned out. Gave my blue walls a shot of color.

Don't you love Fridays?

Went on a fieldtrip with the 3rd graders today. We went to a local place called Luther Burbank Gardens. I had just written a paper on him for my biology class, and when I learned they were going there, I asked if I could tag along. I aide for this class, so it was no problem. I thought it was going to be boring, but it was actually a rather interesting place. He sure did amazing things for our world!

I should be studying right now for a biology test I have on Monday night, but I'm so fried from the week. I'd rather relax. Going to kick myself for it tomorrow I'm certain!

Weight Watchers is going well. I think I've had a pretty good week. I did have pizza for dinner, but only half of a personal size, and it was a margherita pizza. Hope it was a good choice! I really have to stop weighing daily. I know it's a bad idea, but I love seeing when the number goes down! I wore a pair of jeans I've had in my closet for two years. Never worn them before today...cause they never fit before. Yeah for me! After dinner is my hard time, because I get the munchies for something salty, or sweet. I weighed and bagged all my food the last time I shopped though, so I have some good choices in the kitchen. Just got to be careful that I don't grab to many at a time!
