Anthropology is so fun!

I can't write much today as I have an appointment with a woman in the anthropology department at school. Yes, I think I've decided to double major. I just love anthro too much to *not* get a degree in it. It's been a passion since I was a child, and I can't let the opportunity pass by. It may take me an extra semester, but who cares?! LOL.

I went to the doctor yesterday for this strange pain in my back, between my shoulder blades. The doctor said it could either be a compression fracture (I hope not!), a pinched nerve, or a herniated disc.. I think it's the latter. I hope it is anyway. That's the easiest thing to cure. :)

She said I can't do any gymnastics or lifting, spotting or anything with my hands/arms until next week when I find out. That's kind of a pain. Last night I went to gym, and the only thing I could do was splits. Not that it's a bad thing... I need to work on my over-splits anyway. At least I'll get good and flexible this week. :D

Another thing... Jeremy's leaving again. I'm going to miss him SO much. At least it's only two weeks without him this time. AND I get to join him the last week. Woohoo! We get to visit his parents, which is pretty cool.

OH! And, AND, AND... I might get to go to the Fort Worth Zoo! It's like five hours away from his parents' house so we'd have to spend the night. Jeremy said if that's the case, then we're not going. HUMPH! No! How often do you get a chance to see bonobos (my favorite animal)! There are only about eight or so zoos in the world that have bonobos, and Fort Worth is one of them! I NEED to see them. It's not just "want" now, it's a NEED! It's for... research! Yeah, that's it! I'm an anthro major... I NEED to witness their behavior! ;) Hopefully, I'll be able to convince him...

So... it's almost eleven now. I probably should get in the shower and start getting ready. I'm very excited. :) (Not about my shower, but about my appointment... ) AND I get ice cream today! I hope Baskin Robbins because I haven't had that in a long time. If not Baskin Robbins, then I'll get this super-tasty, soft-serve stuff. We'll see how it goes.

Okay, oh! I wanted to say one more thing. I really would like to be a better wife. I'm not sure how exactly because Jeremy said I can't be better (how sweet!), but I really do feel like I can better myself in many ways. I'm going to think about it a whole lot and track it all in here. :)

I told myself I wouldn't leave Diaryland. I've been there since 2002. I didn't want to leave.

But... but... then I found LiveJournal. I know, I'm a sell out! A big, fat sell out! I don't know what to do.

I also found MySpace... and I have tons of friend there, and that is cool. I suppose I can have three online journals, right?! Maybe?! *sigh* Well, maybe I'll see ya? I still love you, Diaryland. Don't worry. I won't forget about you... the one who introduced me to online journals/blogs. :)

*emmett* ~ who thinks maybe she can keep up three online journals...

Home Sweet Home!

Well, I'm back. I actually got back last Tuesday, but I've been super busy. I had school orientation and registration on Wednesday. That was fun and crazy. I couldn't get ANY of the classes I needed because I'm an incoming junior. UGH. That sucked. So... I talked to the Dean, and she got me in to all of them. Woohoo. :)

I really, really, really would like to double major in Nutrition/Dietetics and Anthropology. That would just be awesome. I'd have to stay another semester or two, but I think it's worth it. I want both so badly. It would be great if I could pull it off. We'll see...

So I was able to register for Primate Behavior, and I'm stoked! I should have probably registered for one of the preceding classes, but I wasn't thinking of the double major at the time. I was just thinking I really wanted to be in that class. I'm going to see what classes are still open. I'm also going to try to get a hold of the dept. chair. I gave her/him a call, but I haven't heard back. I need to drop an email. That seems to work better these days.

Being back home is good, Jeremy and I are "spring cleaning" and moving things around, which is always fun to have a nice change. We turned the "cupboard under the stairs" (tee hee) into the computer room. And it's awesome! Jeremy calls it the "Micro-Room," because he has a sign that says so (that may or may not have been taken from his school in CA...). LOL.

He's so cute. He told me he wants him to make him breakfast and lunch every day, not to mention, dinner by 6 pm. All I have to say is... it's about time! Gosh! I was wondering when he was going to let me do that. Sheesh. It only took 2 1/2 years! I LOVE making him lunch and breakfast. I'm so weird. Last night we had pizza. Yummm...

And... I'm finished with my Harry Potter Ravenclaw costume! Yahoo! (please don't mind the no make-up or hair being done... LOL)

Okay, technically, I don't have the robe yet. It's on its way, but it should be here in a few days. Then, I'll just have to sew the patches on. YES! I'm so excited. And Hanna will be here in about two weeks, and that will be so awesome. No Jamie (her ex-husband), no Leif, no Jeremy. I get her all to myself! I'm so silly.

Well, I think that's about it. I can't think of anything else going on. :)

Gosh, yesterday I was SO stressed. I leave for vacation tomorrow, so I had TONS of stuff to do yesterday. I had to drive SIX places. UGH! At least Chris went with me for some of it. That was cool. Jeremy would have gone, but he had to work. :-( Anyway, shopping with Chris is so fun because he actually *likes* shopping. LOL. I just had to return a hundred things yesterday. I am *so* the queen of returning things. But at least I'm saving money. LOL.

I cried twice yesterday. I guess I'm just nervous about my trip. And I'm upset because I've been so tired lately, and I can't work more hours (which I want). I feel like if I don't work more at my job, I'm left out. That's a bummer. Anyway, I need to get over that. Being tired because of my disease is not THAT big of a deal... really.

In other news... Harry Potter is like 31 days away. Yay! I'm almost done with my costume too. Hanna and I are dressing up as Ravenclaw students, and I'm trying to find all the pieces to our costumes. I have everything now except the robes. But I think I found them for like $25 each on eBay, which would be SO sweet-@$$.

That's probably how much it would cost to make them so that would be cool if we could minus the 20+ hours it would take to make two of them. :) This *is* costing me lots of money though. I'm going to have to sell stuff on eBay like MAD when I get back. I was thinking of buying a button-making machine and making HP buttons for the release. I actually have tons of ideas for HP buttons so that would be sweet.

Anyway, I have to go to work in a few hours so I need to finish cleaning and packing. Tomorrow at this time, I will be one hour from vacation! Yahoo!

Things have been too crazy for me to write. I was sick for a while after my wisdom teeth were pulled, but I'm feeling much better. My sister visited last week with her three girls. That was super fun. They were here for SIX days! It actually went by really quickly. Jeremy was stressed though and lost patience after a few days. LOL. Her girls are so cute though, and I didn't get sick of them. :)

So anyway, she just left Tuesday, but she's in the hospital as I write this. She thinks she has something wrong with her gallbladder, so they're running a million-zillion tests right now. Poor thing. I hope she's better soon. My brother's wife had to have her gallbladder removed after she had one of her kids. Many women have that problem after they have a baby. Weird.

Well, I think that's about it going in my life. I need to stop buying clothes. I promised Jeremy I would stop, but then I find super-cute skirts on sale, and I have a hard time saying no. Anyway... I'm sure I'll be fine. :)

Catching Up.

Gosh, I haven't written in a long time. I got my wisdom teeth pulled. Did I say that already? I'm too lazy to go look at my last entry. Anyway, yeah... that sucked, and I'm SO glad it's over.

I haven't been doing much lately. Jeremy has been an absolute angel since he's gotten back from his trip. I'm the luckiest wife alive. :)

I've started reading Harry Potter again recently. I need to finish Book 4. I'm such a dork for only reading 1, 3 and 5. Yes, I know... not truly a Harry Potter fan. Though I'm at the book releases at midnight, and I see the movies the day they come out... after standing in line for hours and hours. So fun.

This year, Hanna and I are dressing up as Ravenclaw students. I even got us some Prefect badges! We will also be wearing our glasses (we have the same exact Rx glasses!) Our hair is almost the same cut and color now too. We'll look like twins. :) LOL. Though Hanna is about 3-4 inches shorter than I am. Tee hee. My dad thinks I'm too old to be dressing up and waiting in line for the release of a children's book, but what can I say?! I *am* a child at heart. :)

Hanna is doing okay. She's moving next week, which is crazy. She's finally leaving her jerk-husband (thank God!), and things with Leif are... well, complicated to say the least! He doesn't know what he wants. He is having a hard time choosing between Hanna and this other girl, Alexis. Pick Hanna! Pick Hanna! But only if you're going to treat her right! Hanna deserves so much... I know she'll get it though. She's so great. :)

I'm leaving for vacation in two weeks, and I'm stoked! My mom and I are going by ourselves, and it will be great. Our relationship has really blossomed in the last year, and that is too cool. (I just used the word "blossomed"? Weird.)

I can't wait to spend a whole week with her. I'm very possessive of my mother; I've come to realize. And I'm kind of selfish about the time I have with her. When I'm with her, I want her all to myself. LOL. I'm like a child still in that aspect, but I think it's because I never get to see her. I deserve alone time with my mother, right?! It's not like it happens that often...

Well, Ruby and Amber are crying at me to... well, I'm not exactly sure *what* they want, but they need something! They look very impatient. And I need some food. :) All is good in my life at the moment.
