New View

The view for the last 6 1/2 weeks...

The new view for the next 2 weeks...the boot is off!

I think everything is healing up nicely.

We decided to check out the Sundance Film Festival last weekend. The atmosphere was charming. The shows were not that amazing. We went to Shorts Program IV, but ended up leaving because the films were not all the great. But all in all, we had a grand time.

My Last First Day of School

Today was my last first day of school.  A blog posting about an event such as this typically promotes a nostalgic recap of one's journey down the road of academic success and a walk down years of his/her social memory lane.  It might end with an inspiring quote about their feelings and looking forward to the future, yada, yada, yada.  Well, not this time.  I only had one class today, which happened to be accounting (yuck) with all of the 1st years since I did not take it last year.  Let me just give you a few highlights:

1. I was late.
2. The ONLY seat left in the classroom was front and center.
3. We had a reading assignment due... from a $150 book that's not even that many pages long (I don't read blackboard BEFORE school starts).
4. We had a homework assignment due (see paranthetical enclosure from #3).
5. We had a quiz due (ditto #3 & #4).
6. My teacher went OVER the allotted hour and 15 minutes.. on the FIRST day.
7. The room was completely full, really hot, and someone kept tooting the whole time, which stunk up the ENTIRE room.
8. I may or may not have told my teacher that I was engaged, had a job already, am in my last semester, and don't really care about the class and that accounting was a necessary evil that I was being forced to take.  Just maybe.

On a happier note, I am really looking forward to my other classes!!! :)  Happy last first day of school!!!

Christmas Break

This Christmas break was filled with a lot of family and friends! I also had my stitches removed by our friend who is an endodontist; we figured stitches in the mouth are the same as stitches in the foot.


Removal of stitches

Friends--Katie & Jennifer came down (Lacey insisted that I post some of these pictures.)
