Fried Turkey....

is really really good!!!! This was our first year doing it, we were a little late jumping on the bandwagon, but mmmm was it good! I think we are starting a new tradition. I love having 4 days off, unfortunately I am going into work today (Sunday) for billing and other stuff, I have been putting off. : (

No new news on the law school front, just that one of my recommenders made a mistake, which I found out after I sent out 11 applications! She stated in her letter of rec. that I have a MA degree, which I do not! I have a teaching certificate but not a MA. So now I am waiting for her replacement letter. Also the 3rd person who is writing a letter for me still hasn't finished it (she said she would write it a year ago).......

* this is not our turkey, ours wasn't quite so pretty but just as tasty

Let the negotiating begin...

I got into law school via a phone call today (my absolute safety school) and they offered me a 70% merit scholarship. I was surprised I was expecting 90-100% from them, but they told me if I got other scholarship offers to send them copies and they would "reconsider" their offer, even though "they don't bid for students" it sounded like an opening offer to me. My husband told me not be a snob (and so I'm trying) and to be happy. Hopefully this is just the first of many to come. I THINK I AM GOING TO LAW SCHOOL!!!

I don't post enough pictures

So here is one, my hot husband oiling our new wood ikea counter tops, on top of our new ikea cabinets, with our new ikea sink in between. He is doing all the work himself, so our kitchen remodel has taken 3 years and it is still not done. I don't remember what it is like not to live partially out of boxes.

I LOVE MY SINK!!!!!!!!!!

I just have to say I was shocked it passed and I am embarrassed for California right now. It was a bitter sweet night Nov. 4th.

While I am waiting for my rejections and hopefully at least one acceptance. I have been a little light on things to talk about. I would post more about monkey but everything I write doesn't even come close to the magic I experience everyday watching her grow up. My marriage is solid and my job is boring, so I decided to steal some memes to get my writing juices started again.

Here is one:

1. Have you ever pooped in the woods? No, I have car camped only once when I was dating an outdoorsy person, but I am defiantly an, experience the great outdoors from scenic drives and cabins, person.

2. You are starving. You have not had anything to eat for days. In front of you is poison ivy, a live hissing cockroach, and a rotten stinky piece of some sort of mystery meat to eat. Which would you pick and why? I want to say cockroach but I have a real thing about them, they seriously freak me out, so it is a toss up.

3. Bottled or Tap water? Filtered tap

4. Your dream job, what would it be and why? Right now pro bono coordinator for a firm, so I can keep the better pay and benefits but still do the work I want to do. However, that could change in law school.

5. Do you have any snow globes? Yes, one. I have a Fargo snow globe it has Marge leaning over a dead body in the snow.
