What an amazingly relaxing day it has been. I literally did nothing today. Well, actually I had a great dinner this fine evening. I had great company too. I am bummed that the weather wasn't a little better. I hear it is supposed to be in the seventies. I can't wait. This rain is great and all, but this girl needs some sunshine.

I am taking one of many certification tests tomorrow afternoon. This exam is the Learning Behavior Specialist certification. Basically, this is what the major is all about. I am excited and nervous at the same time. I have a great support behind me so I know that no matter what happens, I am going to do my best.

Okay, so I have been invited to go to a Cubs game. My family are Sox fans. Choices choices. Hmm..... The game isn't until July so I guess I have some time to deliberate.

Until then, I hope everybody is enjoying what is left of April because it's going to be over before we know it. Lots of Love!

Isn't it amazing how a cell phone can be the best invention ever and an evil enemy the next? I also say that about the WheatThins box. It was great because they are soo tasty, but not so great when I happen to get a box-cut. If you don't know what a box cut is, imagine a paper cut and multiply then pain by three. Ouch!
Back to the cell phone thing. You see, I just switched carriers from Sprint to Cingular. Yay for me! I like my new phone and all, but I am having problems figuring some things out. I suppose it will give me something to do during class. Also, did you notice that with phones, the wrong person always happens to call and the person you want to call, doesn't? We have all been there. I am not going into detail about it, but just know that I am going through that now. Grumble.

Wow, another beautiful day. I celebrated the weather by taking the little boys I babysit for to the park for almost two hours today. They had such a good time and that made me happy.

Enjoy this weather and remember to smile. After all, smiles are contagious! :)

What a beautiful day! I truly enjoy these days when the sun is shining bright and there is not a cloud in the sky. I feel like a kid, wanting to go and play at the park. Anybody want to join? :)

I certainly cannot await for the flowers to bloom. My favorite flower is the Gerbera Daisy. I love this type because of the vibrancy of the flower. They come in any color or size. They are simply unique in their own way.

Well, I hope that everyone can stop and smell the roses every once in awhile. Enjoy the sunshine!

Could this really be spring? With all of that snowy weather we had not too long ago, I almost forgot what nice weather was like.

Just an update: I am well into my last clinical of my college career. This clinical consists of working with students with developmental disabilities. In other words, these students are extremely low-functioning. I was hesitant at first, but I am coming around to like it. I still would not choose this level to teach, but I am glad to have experience. I feel like I am learning a lot.

My parents have moved, again. Now, when I speak of my family, I refer to us as the nomads. Seriously, we need to stop moving. We just moved to Wheaton about two and a half years ago from Orland Park (Orland Hills). Now, we moved in the same complex, just different apartment. This is a lot of moves. Keep in mind that I still have to move to-and-from school every semester. What a hectic lifestyle! haha. It does keep things interesting though.

I certainly hope this weather hangs around for awhile. I, myself really enjoy feeling a slight breeze and the sun warming my skin. Enjoy!
