I received my degree in the mail the day before yesterday! I knew that I had earned one, but did not have the certificate in front of me, but there was something about seeing it that just was wonderful. Since, I have showed it to anyone who will look! I can not believe that it took me so long to complete that. It just felt like a huge accomplishment.I'm happy. Now, I just have to get that Bachelor's degree under my belt and then hopefully I will be able to find a better job. The job search is not going so well at the present time. I really hope that changes too.
On a lighter note, nearly my whole immediate family ended up at my sister's house for dinner last night. She had already invited my parents, then I called her up and invited myself, and my brother did the same! The only one who was not there was my baby sister and my nephew. I don't know why she was not there, but she wasn't. It was fun. I have found more and more since I have been associating with them more that I want to be around them more. Maybe it's because I spent so much time away from them that now, I want to be aropund them, I don't know why, but it has been fun and it feels like bonding or maybe reconnecting with them.
Oh, yeah, Dustin turns 13 next week, have I mentioned that already? It is giving me a headache to think about it. My first boy, a teenager! Oh, jeez, what am I going to do?
