Feel Good Friday

Oh Laura Erika, how I've missed thee!

Erika is the lovely writer of The Girl Next Door Grows Up. Not only was she one of my very first followers, but her Feel Good Friday meme (ps, still looking for an alternative word to use here), was one of the very first blog posts I did! I L.O.V.E. this woman and her blog and her quirkiness and, oh, I just want to give her a hug!


Anyway, I haven't participated in Feel Good Friday in way too long and I've really missed it. I think it's such a great way to remember the great times from the week and forget about the bad. If you'd like to play along and share some of your good times from the week, hop on over to her blog and choose one of the 5 prompts. Don't forget to link up!


I have decided to write about a couple things that made me really, really happy this week:

1. On Monday, I had my Microbiology final exam. My grade in this class all summer has been a mid B because I did horribly on one freakin' exam. I was really nervous the last few weeks because I had to get a B in order to be able to apply for the nursing program I am interested in. Well folks, I totally ROCKED my exam! 56/50 (there were 10 points of extra credit.)!!! WOOHOO! I pulled out an 89 in the course, which is a high B. And, actually, I'm really glad it was an 89 and not a 90 or 91, otherwise, it would have been a repeat of what happened last semester with Anatomy (grade scale discrepancies between campuses of the same school).

2. Wednesday morning I received a call from one of the school's in which I am enrolled. I had been on a waiting list for a 5-week course of Business Statistics, but wasn't too hopeful of getting in because there were 8 people ahead of me on the list. The plan was to take it next semester, until Wednesday when I was notified that I had gotten in!!!

3. The best part about getting into the class is that all of my classes next semester will be online. My parents plan on going to Florida in the winter for 6 weeks. You better believe I'm shimmy-ing on down there for a week or so to escape the cold, and now that I don't have to show up to campus for class, I should be able to do so!

So those are my highest of highs from this week! Hope you all had some great moments, too!

I'm nannying for three kids all weekend, so here's to maintaining my patience and energy and will have great stories to share when all is said and done :)

Happy Friday, y'all! And, if you're new to my blog, WELCOME! Thanks so much for stopping by, I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoy writing it :)

Found you on Feel Good Fri & wanted to say hello! Jealous that you get to spend weeks in FL during the winter. Although I am just north in GA, going south is always wonderful in the winter!

Great that you're getting into the program you want. NICU is a special place and if you know that's where you want to go, all the power to you!!

Awww... Marianne, you are the best! That was so nice of you and I feel the same way!!!

Except for now I am a little jealous that you are going to have such an amazing winter!!!! Oh that is so cool! Or, should I say, hot - ha ha!

Great news about the grades and school!!

Have a great weekend! Have you ever painted rocks with the kids? Sarah and Emily and I have been doing that a lot this summer. Then they throw them back outside and spend a LOT of time trying to re-find them!
