What's going on here?

Sorry to be out of touch for a day or so there. I have been stressing pretty hard about a huge test in Anatomy that covers all the material we've learned so far. It's worth way more than basically everything I've done in the class to this point, so it was kind of make or break for me. I took it while the kids were napping today and I got a 90%! Cannot complain about that at all. 

Now I just have to take the lab version of the test, which is all paragraph answers and makes me want to throw up. I could use some prayers and positive thoughts for that one! This class amazes me every day with how difficult it really is. I'm thanking my lucky stars I didn't take Statistics or Microbiology this semester as well! That would have literally killed me. My other classes are labor intensive but don't kill my brain the way Anatomy does. 

So I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. We have several quizzes a week and four big tests a semester, but they are thankfully NOT cumulative and after I get done with these I can kind of focus on the new material. After a while all the terms and parts do seem to make it into my brain, so I am slowly but surely retaining some information!

Mandy and I spent hours online last night looking for cheap plane tickets to Iowa to visit our beloved Gitzengirl. For those of you who haven't "met" Sara over at her blog, she's amazing. She suffers from Ankylosing Spondylitis, which is an autoimmune disease that affects basically all aspects of her life. She's homebound and in constant pain and yet she is literally the happiest and most at peace woman I have the pleasure of knowing. It hit us yesterday that if we don't visit now I won't have the opportunity for an indefinitely long period of time, and it's impossible to know what her health will be as time goes on. My mom offered to watch the kids so we can pop in and out for about 48 hours before I move. So now I'm just trying to find a magically cheap plane ticket. I should have been a flight attendant, for real. They get all the perks. Buddy Passes and free peanuts. Win Win! 

That's about all that's going on here right now! School and packing and trying to fit lots of visits to our favorite places before we leave. Jace has his first loose tooth and I am literally holding him back from tying a string around it and slamming the door to get it out. It's a top front tooth, which is really odd for a first tooth to lose, at least in my experience. 

Oh! And Seth has started calling Evany "Ebby." Why don't kids listen when their parents give them approved nicknames? I mean, her nickname is Vivi. Get with the program, Seth. There are no Ebby's here. I have to admit it was pretty cute when he came running out of their (newly shared) room with a headband and bow, yelling "Ebby! Ebby! Your hot!" (he meant hat) He's so funny. 

I really need to come up with some content that is not random tidbits from my day, huh? It's pretty bad, I know. Hope everyone is having a great night!
