I am so bad at updating!!

I have been sick for like a week and half now. It really was not fun at all! I had no real obligations, so at least it was a okay time to just be a bum.

My bachelor's degree is officially done!! Yeah! It feels so nice to have that done.

I am studying for the CBSE (Comprehensive Basic Science Exam) with my time off. I will take it at the end of Jan. I have to get a certain score to register for the exam and another to be able to sit for the exam. Of course, the hope is you can qualify to sit for the exam with the first try, but this does not always happen.

I am looking forward to Chirstmas. Keith and I are going to my folk's house on Friday to start the celebrations. Christmas Eve the family is going to Carol Sue and grandpa's house for dinner. I am looking forward to relaxing, enjoying time with my family, and eating lots of good food.

And on Dec. 29th, the fam is heading North. We are stopping first in Madison, WI (8hr drive) to visit my aunt Carol. On the 30th, we will head East to Milwaukee, WI (2 hr drive) to see my grandparents and my aunt Nancy. We will stay with them for two nights and celebrate 2006 there. On the 1st of Jan. we are heading South to Chicago (another 2hr drive) to stay with my cousin Jeanne and her family. While we are there, we are going to have dinner with Keith and his family. Then on Jan. 2nd, we will be heading back to KC (another 8 hour trip). Then, class starts for me on the 3rd!

Hope everyone has a great holiday!

Happy Belated Birthday to Jess VB!
Happy Birthday to Lisa!
and Happy Early Birthday to Monika!

Funny quote from clinic this week:
My patient was a 65 year old female who had a lumpectomy for breast cancer in Sept. Very sweet old lady!

Me: "How has your scar healed from your lumpectomy?"
Pt: "Okay, I guess. It just doesn't look the way it used to. It just looks weird now."
Me: "oh really?"
Pt: "I mean its not bad or anything. It's not like I was going to be working in a titty bar or anything! "
Pt and I both crack up laughing.

Sorry it has been such a long time since I posted. It seems when you are the least busy, blogging is the last thing on your mind. November was a good month, but I am glad that it is December. I have a few assignments left and then I am done with my bachelor's. YEAH! Since my classes do not have finals (just papers), I will be done an extra week earlier than the rest of the kids.

Exciting weekend coming up. Friday is Lisa's 22nd birthday, so we will be partying with her for that. Saturday my docent unit is going to dinner and then bowling. It is always fun to spend time with them away from school. And Sunday, Keith and I are going to the Chiefs v. Broncos game (thanks to Uncle Steve and Aunt Monica)! It should be really awesome.

Hope everyone is doing well that reads (all two of you)! :) Maybe as I get busier studying I will post more. :)
