The cutest little Orange on the block...

Ok, I am bragging for just a minute. Yesterday was Abbye's MDO Christmas much cuteness. She and her class got up on the stage and banged on little drums for the song Little drummer boy and then tried to sing We wish you a merry Christmas. It was too cute. Her teacher, Miss Kari and her Aide, Miss Sole, have done a great job with her. I also have to brag on Emilye and Jessica because when we got there (to the church), the MDO coordinator, Miss Christy had programs for the parents. Emilye and Jessica said they would gladly pass them out to people and then when it was over, they took the initiative to pick up all the left over programs that were laying all over the sanctuary. Then Emilye helped our good friend Catherine keep up with her kids during the reception. Cat is a great gal whom I adore...she has FIVE kids also, except that her kids are Five, Four, Three, One and New!!! I thought I had mine close together till I met Cat. Anyway, I feel very blessed to have such helpful and courteous children. :)

Still don't have our tree up, which is so not like us, but we will get it done. Not sure when, but it will happen before Christmas. Hopefully this afternoon I will feel up to it, I know the girls really want to and Josh will be home from his visit with Uncle Lance.

School is going slow, but going none the less. My goal is to get to my mid-term by January. My friend Tracey (who is an Honors Grad from the school I am going to) says that once I get to the actual transcribing part I will enjoy it and it will go faster. Well as fast as over 800 files can go I guess. I am looking forward to finding out what Demon Toe Licker is all about. For those of you reading who have no clue what I am speaking of, basically, I have heard there is a doctor who is dictating, but their accent is so thick that is sounds like they are saying "Demon Toe Licker" and I am dying to find out what they are really saying! OH the little things right?

Well, I am just checking in....hope you all have a good friday. I am still trying to take it easy as I am still not completely over my pneumonia, but I do feel much better than I did!

Be blessed!

Orange you glad it's Christmas time?

I can't believe it's been over a year since I last blogged. Where have I been?? LOL I say that to myself and not to y'all. This time last year, Jerry was home, the kids were all a year younger and I was going to school for medical transcribing. This year, Jerry is back at work in Iraq, the kids are all a year older and I am STILL going to school for medical transcribing. I got a bit side tracked but am feeling like I am finally regaining my momentum and my footing. I am actually blogging again today because of a wonderful friend from my transcribing school. She inspired me today, to get back on the wagon so to speak. She reminded me of how excited I was when I first started school and just how much I really do want to be a medical transcriptionist.

Things around here really haven't changed much. Josh is in 5th grade this year, Emilye is in 4th grade, Madi is in 2nd, Jessi is finish up Kindergarten about to start 1st grade and Abbye is going to MDO (mother's day out) twice a week.

I am still struggling with my weight loss...sometimes I feel as though this will be an on going thing for me, but again, it's something I simply have to determine to do and get it done. So back on the wagon I go for many things I guess. I see no need to wait until Jan 1. If I need to wait then I am obviously not ready to really commit.

Christmas time is here, it's my favorite time of the year. I am one of those people who starts listening to Christmas music Nov1. Although, our tree is not up yet this year. I hope to remedy that this week. Speaking of which. I need to get upstairs and get my closet cleaned out. For those of you who follow me, thanks for still being here. I will make NO promises of coming daily or doing any a better job of keeping up, but I shall try...that is all I can do.

See you soon!
