Milwaukee Zoo

Steph and I took the girls to the zoo today and they had a blast. We got to ride on the little train and make "choo choo" noises as well as ride the merry-go-round. I absolutely love doing kid stuff! You know you've had a good day when you come home with a stuffed monkey.

Weekend Stuff

Well, Jason is in Milwaukee helping Billy move his stuff to Rockford so I'm kind of stranded for today at least. It's not so bad though since the weather is beautiful once again. Juliana and I spent a lot of time outdoors yesterday and she played in the dirt while I laid in the sun reading. That's my girl, loving the dirt. I asked her what she was doing and she replied, "I gar-de-ding!" I'm reading Marion Zimmer Bradley's last novel, "Priestess of Avalon" and it's quite good. It was actually completed by a good friend of hers after she died so I was kind of wary at first, but this author seems to have really picked up on Bradley's style. It's still not as good as my all-time favorite "Mists of Avalon" but it's enjoyable and I can't put it down. It's nice to read some good fantasy fiction again after reading a string of non-fiction books for school.
Not that this is related to anything I just said, but I thought this picture of me and Billy at Brad's wedding reception was really cute so I'm posting it.

Yay Me

Well, here goes the first entry. I still haven't quite figured out exactly how I'm going to separate this weblog from the "newbie" one, but I'll worry about that later. Hopefully this site will not languish for two years like the previous one with heinously outdated information! My big news for today is that I got my final grade report from Columbia in the mail, complete with 3.687 cumulative grade point average. As I said above, Yay Me! I actually should have done better overall if I hadn't slacked in a few of my general studies classes, but I can't really change that now. The important thing is that I reached the magic number of 124 credit hours (and not a single credit more or less, I might add!) I'm hoping to get my actual degree in the mail any time now. I still feel like I won't completely believe it is true until I see it in writing. Well, that's all for now. I've got a lot of designing to do with this site before I get it just right.
