ICLW and Cha-Cha-Cha-Changes!!!

Welcome Dreamers!! If you've found my blog from ICLW, you've found my little piece of heaven in the blogosphere. If your new to my blog, please feel free to poke around and get to know me. The trials and tribulations of my TTC journey can be found HERE, and if you're not new to my blog and you still have no clue what ICLW is although I've been talking about it and participating in it every month since March as part of my 101 in 1001 goals you can go HERE to enlighted yourself on that. (Geez, now I'm a run-on sentencer, oh well... LOL!)

Now, back to my regularly scheduled blogging...

In the last week some many things have happened I feel like my head is in a whirlwind. First off, I turned 27 last Friday. (Yes, Friday the 13th!!) I was all worried and didn't have my hopes up that anything important would happen for my birthday. Actually, I figured DH would forget about me altogether like he has so many years in the past. I was so wrong! He didn't forget. I got ym hair cut and colored for my birthday, and he took me out to dinner, and we were supposed to go to a movie.... but I felt bad doing all the things that we/I had done that day without *B*, so I suggested going to the dirt track races the following night instead of a movie. (That got rained out, but still I had a GREAT birthday.)

Secondly, we were supposed to camping at a local lake, but that didn't happen b/c of the third reason I'll write about shortly. Instead DH and *B* camped out in the back yard and we had a fire in our new fire pit. (I may or may not quit calling this new sometime before the summer is over, who knows... LOL! Since we've had it since late June.) We also, went to the Col*umbus Zoo and Aqua*rium yesterday instead. I'll post pictures of that soon.

Thirdly and lastly the biggest change around here and why we couldn't go camping is b/c I was enrolling in college!!! I'm sooooooooo very excited about this. I've had my ear glued to the phone all week long until yesterday getting everything situated. I completed and passed my entrance test. I submitted my application for enrollment into the Medical Administration program to receive my Associate's degree. I completed my FAFSA. Now, I'm just waiting on my financial aid appt on Monday to see what types of federal grants and loans I'm eligible for. My start date is October 4th!! So, after all of that and a week's worth of non-stop time on the computer and on the phone I'm officially a student as of 10/4/10 at

I'll have my degree in 22mths. Then I plan to apply for a radiology program at one of our local techinical or community colleges, so that I can be a radiologist. Did I mention I'm super duper excited to be going back to school?!?! Let me mention if for you again.... I'm soooooooooo excited!! This has been a long time (9yrs, since graduation of high school) in the making!! Wish me luck.
