With all my time being used for studying and not much of anything else, I find that just taking that one photo a day is going a long way at keeping me sane. It has become that one tiny bit of creativity, no matter how small that bit is, that gives the day it's spark, calms my anxiety and makes me smile.

I have not been doing much of anything other than studying. I am tired of studying. I am really looking forward to being finished with this class. That lucky day is the 31st of January. The thing is...this is only the first class. I have a lot more classes to go until I can sit for my certification. I may take a little break before I start on the next one though.
The 3rd week of January was spent pretty much at home. Lots of studying and the weather made it so that being home was a pretty good idea. We actually had a Tornado Watch/Warning this last week. Quite the excitement around here. You don't see that many tornados out here in the desert.

A traveling friend is in town and it was nice to be able to catch up with each other. It has been about a year since she was last here. If only I did not have to worry about completing my class, I would be able to spend more time with her.
Speaking of completing my class...as of today I have 8 chapters to read/tests to take (not including the final) and only 14 days in which to do it. I also still have to find someone to proctor my final. I am finding that to be a very hard task. I cannot have anyone related (or married) to me proctor my final. Since I pretty much only have my family in town it makes it kind of hard to find someone.
Well, I can hear the microwave beeping at me. That means lunch is ready and my blogging time for the day is done. Time to hit the books!

I find it a bit hard to believe that we just completed the first week of January. It feels as though so much more time has passed. Maybe because my days have been full with going to work, trying to study and starting a new 365 project. Yep, you read that right. I decided to embark on yet another daily photo project. This will be third year of taking a photo-a-day . . . BUT it is the first year where I actually start on the first day of the calendar year.
I created my blog not only to share but to remember. To remind myself of what I have done. But with only 64 blog posts for 2009, the memories and sharing just has not been there.
I don't really think of my family (the hubby and I) as people who really do much. I mean it is just us and the cats. We don't have kids, we don't really travel, we don't really do anything other than go to work and hang out at home. 2009 brought some pretty significant changes for us. 2009 was to be the year of reconnecting with my past and it did not disappoint. Looking back I have to say that 2009 ended up being a pretty full year for us after all.
Which in turn broke our computer so we were forced to upgrade. We finally got a laptop and a computer with over 40GB of space! Welcome to modern technology.
And another friend came to AZ to visit. A great group of ladies I have not seen in a long time.
