News From Beyond

Well not really. I've been fairly busy. I went to NJ for Thanksgiving and had an unbelievably wonderful time. I had fun seeing lots of cousins and we did a lot of fun things.

My 17 year old cousin has a growth on her jaw bone and will be going under general anthesia to get in there and see what's going on. She may have to lose the three surrounding teeth and she will also need bone reconstruction surgery as this growth has destroyed some bone. So we're very concerned. My grandfather died of bone cancer at 50 and my Aunt (her mother) 1 had cancerous cysts on her ovaries. So, cancer runs in the family.

I'm a little worried. I was petting Smokey this morning and discovered a very large mass on his ribs under his skin. I called the vet and we have an appointment tomorrow. Please keep your fingers crossed for me and Smokey. I know he's a geriatric, but I already lost my doberman earlier this year and I couldn't bear to lose another one.

So, we have a few tough things to get thru. If you don't mind, please say an extra little prayer for us. I would greatly appreciate that.

And now I have some sweet news. I went to my cousins house (mansion would be more appropriate) for Thanksgiving. His wife is Philipino and they've been married for awhile now and they have no kids. Anyway, she has family in the Philipines and she has these two little girl cousins, 6 and 7 who's mother abandoned them and their father died last year. So she and my cousin adopted these little girls and took them from rags to riches, got them tutors, beautiful clothes and toys. You name it. These girls are so sweet and loving, I can't even express it. I walked in having never met them and they asked me who I was. I said I'm your cousin and they said okay and just started hugging me. It was just so wonderful.

School is now over for this term. I received a 96% in my Stats class and 91% in my Writing class.
I hope all is well and please, leave me lots of comments, I love them.

I'm heading off to NJ for the week to celebrate Thanksgiving with some different family members. I love my family up here, but they are a bunch of downers. So I'm off to have some laughs and some fun. The dogs are at the kennel and while I miss them, it's kind of nice to wake up naturally.

Anyway, this was my last week of school for my first time, which is awesome, such a relief. Next term I'll only have to take one class, which is a bonus.

I took my niece to see Flushed Away. I wanted to see Happy Feet, but you can't argue with a 4 year old. She was so sweet, when we were leaving she said, "That was great, thank you so much for taking me." Yes, she's a sweet 4 year old. Actually, my favorite thing that she said was when I was opening her water bottle for her, she clutched it to her chest and said, "You have your own right?" In other words, she didn't want to have to share with me.

Unfortunately, I don't have anything exciting or any breaking news to report. So, I just wanted to wish you all a very Happy Thanksgiving!!!

I'll be back in touch when I get back!! Much love!

I'm Back .....From Outer Space!!

Actually, just Salt Lake City, but it feels like I was on another planet. I have to say it was beautiful out there. Everyone was really nice and I was right in down town SLC so I walked everywhere. I walked to the mall, the Temple Square and the best part was when I walked to work and back to the hotel everyday. Just something so great about that. It was a nice clean area with mountains bordering on the East and the West. It was beautiful and I had gorgeous weather all week as well. It was bout 70 and just beautiful.

I met a lot of nice people and I had a good time. My flights were awesome there and back. There were no delays or any other problems. So that was great. I wasn't even the slightest bit homesick. I went to watch the Mormon Tabernacle Choir rehearse. They were awesome. Anyway, I had a good time and I'm glad to be back home.

However, when I got home I went on a date with my ex. Yes the same one that broke my heart and left me crushed for a long time. I dressed incredibly sexy and sat down in front of him and showed him that he didn't break me. I showed him that I'm happy and that I'm soooooooo over him. It may not have been the best thing or the right thing to do, but hey, it worked for me. Plus I made him pay for dinner.

Okay back to my trip. The highlight of my trip? My brand new pink 4GB Nano IPod. I love it. There was no in flight entertainment on my connecting flight so my IPod came in unbelievably handy. I think that I will hold a contest next post of songs that you think I should add to my IPod.

Sorry I haven't been around lately. I only have 2 weeks left of school, this week and next. I may have actually made it thru the entire term in one piece.
