Starting School Again…

That’s right, last week was my first week of my first course on my second time at taking college classes! Now, I already have a Bachelor’s Degree from Northwestern College and I absolutely loved my years there. John was looking at taking some online classes to start on his degree, since the Army pays for his college he wanted to get started now. The college he decided to go with gives spouses up to $4,000 scholarship towards classes, and so I was talked into taking some online courses toward a certificate in web design.

Last week I started an Introduction to Computer Science class, and I have to say, I absolutely hate it. I’m not sure if it’s the subject or the class itself that I hate. No, it is the class itself. I find the subject matter a little confusing, but very interesting. The amount of work was insane and I don’t understand how anyone with a full time job can handle this. I had a hard time and I only work 10 hours a week. I just hope that every week isn’t as loaded with work and not so confusing. Part of it is because I haven’t taken a single class since 2008. And I don’t even remember the last time I had to use more than basic math.

Thankfully this class only has 7 weeks left, then it will be on to Web Design I

Missing Blog Posts

So I just realized when I moved my blog from crazycordy.net to here, I somehow lost almost 4 years of blog posts… I remembered my last blog post was about seeing The Band Perry last summer, but nowhere to be found is that post! Also, the old domain has expired so I can’t even go back in and find the blog post… Unless I search the database I can maybe find it somewhere in there, but I don’t even know where to BEGIN looking… guess that’s an adventure I’ll be taking soon!

Edit: they’ve been found and re-added! I feel complete!

Multitasking Is Not Always a Good Thing

Hello all! It’s been quite a long time since I have really blogged about anything, on any of my sites. I’ve become very invested in maintaining fansites and working on Screencapped.net that I haven’t really found the time to blog, and haven’t really thought I had anything to blog about.

Well, this last weekend, on Saturday afternoon, I was letting our dog Dakota back inside, and to get from the outside into the house, you have to go through the garage. There are two steps from the garage floor to the door to the outside. As Dakota came inside, I was messing on my phone, looking at Facebook, and somehow I missed a step coming back into the garage. My left foot hit a step or the ground funny (I can’t quite remember as it happened so fast), twisted, I heard a crack, I tried to catch myself with my other foot, but that one rolled as well. The right ankle cracked as well, but thankfully nothing more happened with that one. However, I fell straight to the ground, just missing the car inside the garage with my head. I started screaming bloody murder. I felt like my foot got cut off at the ankle. I was certain it had gotten broken. I’ve never broken a bone in my life, but I was sure this was finally it.

My husband John came running into the garage asking what happened. All I could do was scream that I thought I broke my ankle. I eventually calmed down enough to stop screaming, but then started crying. Just bawling. I couldn’t believe how stupid I had been. All because I was playing on my damn phone. He helped me to my feet and I hobbled inside. I laid down on the couch downstairs and John put ice on my ankle. I told him I wanted to go to the hospital because I wanted to know if it was actually broken or just a sprain. To top it all off, I was supposed to be going to work in a couple of hours.

I called work and let them know I more than likely wouldn’t be able to work and that I was going to the hospital. At the hospital I was told it was a severe sprain and I had a navicular fracture. I was given crutches and the “space boot” as the doctors called it, and am now currently still waiting to get a referral to see orthopedics. Yesterday I noticed the ankle really had swollen up, but today I am noticing that it doesn’t hurt as much as the last few days. I can actually put a little bit of pressure on it as well.

I’m still humiliated and feel so stupid for missing one damn little step, but I will definitely think twice about walking down or up stairs while messing on the phone!

No Shave November

How in the heck did it get to be November already? This year is just flying by and I feel like I haven’t accomplished a damn thing! Well, the elections are over (finally), the weather is getting colder and we have finally settled into our new home. We still have a lot of things to unpack and put away, but all the essentials are in their place and it finally feels like home

We are hosting a housewarming this weekend, and I’m a little nervous, and very excited. A littler nervous only because I’ve never even been to a housewarming so I’m not exactly sure what goes on, but I’m really excited to see a lot of our family and friends that we haven’t been able to see more than once a year for the past 5 years! It’s so good to be back home!
