Anxious, Nervous, Excited and more,

Yes, I am all of the above. Anxious about our trip to DC. Which we leave in 6 days. Nervous about the drive. I am not sure how we are going to manage 16 hrs with the kids, but I am prepared. I have bought things to keep the kids entertained, like coloring books, games that can be done in the car, and my mom is giving us dual portable DVD players as our Christmas present.I told our family that the kids do not need anything. Which is true they have WAY TO many toys and cloths, some which they have not worn yet. I am very excited about all the places we are going to visit in DC.

I got my grades from school today and I am very happy. I got a B in ENC 1101, which is great, considering that the class was very hard for me. The professor graded really tough. I got an A in my math which I knew; the lowest grade I got in the class was a 91%. I am very happy with how school is going. Last semester I got A's in both of my classes. Next semester I am taking ENC 1102 with the same professor I had in ENC 1101 and I am also taking another Math course. I am planning in getting A's again. I am hoping that when I finish my Associates that I can get a scholarship for my Bachelors. I can't believe that we do not qualify for financial aid. I have to get loans. Luckily Jose classes are paid by his job.

The kids are doing good. We are still having issues with Anthony and potty training for the most part is is fine. It just sometimes, I am not sure if he forgets or just does not want to go to the bathroom, so he pees or poops on himself. But he only does it when we are at home when we are out at someones house or at a store if ask to go to the bathroom. I guess eventually he will get the hang of it.

I have not been going to the gym consistently but I have noticed the changes. In my clothes especially. Most of them are looser then they used to be. Even in my picture I can tell the difference. I have not weighed myself because I don't want to yet. I know that I haven't lost that much weight but I do feel that my muscles are toner and I like it. I want to tone my mid area more and my arms. Maybe in about another month or so I will weigh myself.

I finished reading the Twilight saga. I was happy with the ending. I would like to see the movie but I know that I will be disappointed. The actors can never meet the images that I have made up in my head. Plus the book is usually always better than the movie.

I probably won't write again until next year.
I want to wish all of you all Happy Holidays and a Happy and safe New Year.

I have been sucked in......

I am not a reader. The only books I really read are True crime books. I am not into fantasy books but about 3 weeks ago my sister in law gave me Twilight to read. She said that I would really like it. I was very skeptical. The book was around the house but I really was not interested. Jose LOVES to read and he does it every night before we go to bed. So last week Thursday we were in bed, while Jose was reading I said hey why not just give it a try. I had no idea what I was getting into. I read the book in 3 DAYS, yes 3 days. I could not put it down. I borrowed the 2 next ones from the series from my SIL. I read NEW MOON in ONE DAY, I am still surprised. Right now I am reading ECLIPSE which I started yesterday and I am more than half way through. I don't have the last one and neither does my SIL so I might have to buy it. I am actually getting sad that I am going to finish the series very soon and will have nothing as good to read.

There is a lot that I would like to write about but all I really want to do is read.

Thanksgiving was OK. My dad caught on fire with one of my candles and my oven broke as we were cooking the turkey. We ended up finishing the turkey on the grill. I was so glad that all our sides were already cooked and just had to be heated. In the end everything turned out fine. My dad is fine but I can't say the same about his shirt and the turkey was pretty good. So I can't complain. Luckily our family was not hungry because they both had gone to someone else's thanksgiving before coming to our house.

Well that is it, well not really I just really want to get back to my book. I am so happy that the kids take 3 hour naps at the same time.
