long overdue update

Hi there!

Here is my long overdue update. :-)

School's been working me hard. I'm in the midst of a term project, a group project, and a paper on Computer Ethics, plus lots of other fun homework :-). It's going well, though, and I'm enjoying it.

I came up to my mom's for Thanksgiving. Bubby (my older nephew) spent Wednesday and Thursday nights with us. He "helped" me make the pumpkin pie. I let him dump the dry ingredients into a bowl and mix. My mom also let him help her make break-n-bake cookies. He got to put them on the cookie sheet! He was so excited that he got to help. After we made the pumpkin pie, all day long he wanted his "pumpkin cake" that he helped make. No amount of correction got him to say pie. It was always cake, lol.

Because he was here, I did not go out this morning. I didn't trust him to stay in bed if he woke while I was gone (my mom was back in her room) and I definitely was not taking a three year-old shopping at 4 in the morning. Instead, we slept in some and hung around the house, until we left to go to ... the Fabric Shack! Bubby was really good at the store. He stayed in his stroller like a good boy. He loves to go shopping! He especially loves any fabric store.

I left my camera at the house and mom's batteries are dead, so pics will have to wait. I told myself I was not buying anything, but they had one of their sale carts outside the store and one of the fabrics caught my eye and my "no-buy" was off. I didn't get too much - less than one bagful for a change.

I'm not sure if I'll get to post again before finals week, so if not, check for me in mid-December :-).

Everyone have a great next few weeks!
