Im finally getting organized, I think. Ive begun the arduous process of turning this blog in a book...several actually. Ive decided to make one per year. That way I can do one each time I have a little extra money. I'm just about done with 2007 which is the first year in which I started blogging. Its going to be fun to see the finished product although the details are stressing me out...it's not like you can return it if you dont like the way it turns out! Also, I have been working on creating myself an "office space" for lack of a better term. Truly, it is a school space right now...a new desk big enough for the computer and space to do homework. Shelves for stacking books, etc. Then I hung a big white board for writing down important things as well as some cork squares...eventually I will hang a picture frame above the computer with the 3 kids pictures in it.
I love my new space. It makes doing homework so much easier and I feel organized... finally.
I also got a new computer through my school. It is an iMac...
Ive been resistant to the whole Apple revolution but after seeing it in action, I was convinced it was the computer for me. So far, I really like it....A lot. The best part? NO WIRES OR CORDS!!! Seriously...what you see in that picture above is the WHOLE computer. The actual computer is inside the screen itself so there is no extra box/tower on the floor. You literally plug it into the wall with one solitary power cord. The mouse is wireless, the keyboard is wireless and because I have a wireless router in my apartment, there isnt even a cord to hook up the internet. It is a beautiful thing to look under my desk and not see a big tangled mess of cords! Its all very exciting to me, if you can't tell.
I painted a couple of walls in the front room. Green. Its a new color for me but Im really liking it right now. It feels so much more comfy in this little apartment. I figure since I am going to be in this place at least another year, I may as well make it pretty :) I ordered some new pictures of the kids from when we had those studio pictures taken a few months ago. I got one on canvas and I am really excited to hang those.
I was also really excited to get an email yesterday informing me that I made the Dean's List at the University of Utah! I was pretty happy about it considering how hard I work to keep my grades up at school. Sure, I could work less and still get B's and C's but I would always know deep down that I was capable of getting A's and it would eat at me if I didnt at least do the most that I could to accomplish that. So, all my hard work is paying off and that is good to know!
