What a weekend!

About a month ago, I decided that I wanted to go back to school to get my Masters of Business Administration (MBA). Yep, I have thought about it for a while now and guess I got a wild hair and decided it was time. The company I work for is chipping in. Whew! I decided that I would look into UHCL, because I really liked finishing my Bachelors Degree there. There were several requirements, like sending in an admission form - yes, you have to be accepted, taking the required admission tests - the GMAT- and of course payment.

I took the GMAT Saturday morning. I was not feeling the greatest, but did not want to lose out on the $250. It was kind of difficult. I got an unofficial score after taking the exam that is higher than UHCL requires for admission. :) The parts not scored were the writing sections. I think I did okay on those, so hopefully the score I got will not go down any. I will send in my admission, and wait for my scores to be sent, then wait to see if I have been accepted. Hopefully, I can start this spring. I have to save up to pay for the first and second semesters because of the delay in reimbursement. We'll see how that goes.

Our fridge went out last week. I think I ate something funky...My stomach was crazy all weekend. I tried to rest this weekend, but we had lots to do. We had to throw away practically everything in our fridge and freezer. We got our new fridge on Sunday. It's neat. I really like it. Anyway, I went shopping today. I started clipping coupons (gotta save that money for school), and ended up saving $20. We now have food again! Love it!

LYS will be next week. Super Great! I have been on the Executive Committee for a while now as General Manager. I ordered t-shirts, trophies, and have been searching for a cool gift for the Hall of Fame inductees. Each year LYS inducts people into the HOF that have given at least 10 years of service to LYS. It's a really special award. I found some cute fleur-de-lis stuff and think we may go with that. You all know how much I love LYS. I look forward to being a part of it for many years to come!

Neo will start school next month! I can not believe it is almost here. Time flies when you are having fun. He is really excited and anxious. I can not wait to see how his first days go. I got some of his school supplies this weekend at Walmart. I have a few more to get at a local supply shop.

Other than that, things here in Graffagninoland have been wonderful. Frankie and I are very happy, even though things keep breaking. We are finding out more and more how awesome our relationship is and know that the best is yet to come. Neo is having fun. And, we are all healthy. Thank God!

Well, that's the latest in my corner. Chat with me soon. Have a great week :)

  • Hey Sis,
    How wonderful it is that you are still involved with LYS...an awesome organization. Listen if you are going to any of the sessions this year please look up Eden Sutley...she is the daughter of one of my jewlers and she is from Lafayette High. She is precious and I know she would love to meet you.
    Love and blessings,
    Mom
