Because I just did a little mini photo shoot with myself...


Well I've been busy since my last blog, but also I feel like I haven't done much. Kay and I went to Orlando to Universal Studios but I haven't gotten those pictures back yet. Then I ended up going to Indiana with my aunt on a kind of spur of the moment trip last week. Left Saturday and got back last Friday morning. Lots of driving.. which I'm not a fan of.

But I got to see my sisters and my nephews. Also one of my cousins just had a baby so I got to see them. I ate a lot of good food and explored Bloomington a bit.

We had some pretty nasty weather while I was up in Indiana. There were tornadoes a couple of different times but luckily they all missed our house. But it meant a lot of watching the weather and spending some time in the basement. Ah, the joys of living in a state with tornadoes.

Today we're doing a Memorial Day cookout with Kay's family. Woohoo. Off I go to get my brownies out of the oven.

Lazy Days

Well it’s almost been a week since I got my wisdom teeth out. I’ve still got a bit of pain in my jaws which is really annoying. I’m so ready for it to all be gone. I think I started eating solid food too soon, but I was just so darn hungry!

We’re leaving for Orlando tomorrow. I’m so beyond excited. I’m ready to just relax by the pool and fit in some time at universal. Hopefully I’ll be feeling good and be able to stop taking my painkillers. Hahah. Oh well, we’ll see.

Over the weekend we spent some time at our friend’s condo in orange beach. The weather as really nice but being in the sun made me feel super tired so I spent most of my time underneath an umbrella on the beach. But that was okay. I still managed to get a bit burnt though somehow.

The rest of the time I’ve been spending a lot of time in bed reading or on the computer. I’ve read Divergent (a great new YA novel), Baby Catcher (memoir about a midwife), Tina Fey’s autobiography and the first Hunger Games book. Reading books for pleasure is the thing I miss most about being in school. And why I loovee summer.

Up next on my list to read is the next two in the Hunger Games trilogy, The Good Man Jesus and the Scoundrel Christ, and rereading the His Dark Materials Trilogy.
Well I’m off to watch Glee.

Well I survived my oral surgery. I’m actually feeling pretty good. Usually after I get put under I sleep the entire day. But I only slept till about 3 or so. I was missing one wisdom tooth so I only had three to be pulled. So one side feels pretty much fine and the other is a bit sore and achy. Not to mention there are three lovely holes in my mouth

But I’ve been chilling in bed all day. Kayla stayed with me so my mom could go back to work and I even convinced her to read to me because I didn’t have my glasses most of the day. We’re reading a great new dystopian fiction called Divergent. I ate some frozen smoothie and broth from the hibachi restaurant. I love that stuff! So it hasn’t been too bad. I’ve been taking my pain meds on time so hopefully I won’t be in too much pain. Only one side is swollen a bit and not very much.. so hopefully it will stay that way.

Other than I created a tumblr for Kayla because I decided she needed to be included in the obsession that is tumblr. I don’t know that she’ll like it as much as I do. But oh well.

I need to take a shower and wash my hair.. but I don’t know if I’ve got the energy for that tonight. We’ll see. My dogs have been laying in bed with me most of the day. I don’t understand how they can sleep so much every day and still sleep all night long.

I start my online lifespan development class starting next week. Hopefully it won’t take up too much of my time. But it actually looks like it will be pretty interesting so it shouldn’t be too bad. Kay and I are going to Orlando next week to go to Universal. I’m so excited. It was one of the only things that got me through the end of the semester!

Speaking, of which my grades finally went up.
Jazz Dance for Non-Majors – A
Voices of Oppression – A
Marriage and Families – A
Multicultural Film – A
College Algebra – B
Islam in the Modern World – B

Not too bad. And I hopefully ended up graduating cum laude. I think. Either that or I’m VERY close.. I won’t find out till I get my diploma in June.. but I really hope that I did. That would be awesome.

Anyway.. I’m off to sleep

Me this morning before I went. Just in case you were wondering what I look like at 7:30 am.

Party time at my house. On the other hand my dogs are delighted that I'm spending so much time in bed.
