can I get more energy, please?

Well, it's Thursday and I have been fighting off exhaustion for the last week and a bit. Work has kept me pretty busy, along with my ASL class, and then there's finding time to be with my husband, any Church activities, and finding time to visit with friends and family. Boy, those who have children and pets and a busier schedule than I must be worn out by noon time! Not that I'm trying to complain; just trying to manage my time better, I guess. :)
Quenton has his grad pictures today. I'm so proud of him! I see him every week going to work, and going to school, and helping out around the house, and still making time for me, and some days I'm just in awe. I feel very blessed and fortunate that I have such a caring and focused husband. :)
Anyway, just wanted to let everyone know that I'm TIRED. Along with probably every other wife/mother/woman that reads this. ;)

genius, a little bit?

So I'm taking an ASL course right now, headed for my certificate and then my interpreter diploma, and I just got my first test back and I'm at the top of my class! I'm so happy! I only say that because I'm normally just an average student, and this really gives me the confidence to keep going and feel that I'm doing a good job. :) I told Quenton that I'm super smart, and he just nodded and said "Yes, you are". :) I'm supposed to say that he's a genius too. :) (It's very true, though. I'm so proud of him!)
I'm trying to make sure that I'm going after my passion, and so far that's how I feel about this course. I'm realizing how important it is to make sure you focus on the things that you love and enjoy doing, and reach for that goal. I really feel that the spirit will guide a person as they seek after this in their life. I know that so far that's what's happened in my life.

So here we are, already into October and getting ready for All Hallow's Eve....... We've already started carving our pumpkins, but realized that they won't last until Halloween, so we'll have to carve some more.... :)
Anyway, Quenton is busy with work and school, while I'm busy with school and work. Not very exciting, but it's life as we know it, and that's ok. I'm working at an elementary school with deaf children and although it's challenging, I love it. :) The kids are really great, and I love the staff I work with.
I just got back from my ASL class and found out that I'm the top of my class, as of right now that is. I feel good about that, because at least I know that this is something that I'm using and that I love. I think that'senough.
Thanksgiving was great. We were down south with Quenton's family and had family pictures and everything. :) Grandpa Pitcher even came to visit before we left, so that was nice. It was different not having grandma with him, but he seems to be doing well.
I really want a dog. Random, I know, but with our not always in sync schedules, I think it would be nice to have a little company.
Anyway, life is good. We're planning on a little trip with some friends Remembrance Day weekend, so that'll be really exciting! Fall has definitly been a time of changing and growing, and now I can't wait for Christmas to come!
