25 Weeks, 4 Days

I started classes yesterday and the initial excitement has still not yet worn off. However, I had to cancel PA 551 Analytical Methods I because the particular instructor for this course teaches it in a sequence with 552 Analytical Methods II in the Spring term. The class basically rolls over from Winter term into Spring term and they cannot be taken separately due to group projects, etc. And she's the only professor that does this! Ugh! Her syllabus read in big bold letters at the top of the page: "Do not take this course if you are unable to take 552 from me in the Spring term". I got this at the beginning of a three-hour long class. Yay. No, I can't take 552 from you in the Spring because I may be popping out a baby around then. Sorry.

Anyway, I dropped 551 and signed up for 533 Public Policy, which starts Friday evening. Luckily, the books for this course are about $180 CHEAPER than the books in 551. I guess it's not too much of a loss.

Anyway, on the baby front, Mr. Squirmy Pants is getting busy these days! A couple mornings ago, Dave actually exclaimed out loud in surprise when he felt the baby rolling around and kicking. Seriously this baby can jolt me out of a peacefull slumber these days. almost 26 weeks, that means he has 14 more weeks of growing, gaining, and stregthening. Thus I have much to look forward to!

That's exciting! What will you do with your MPA when you graduate? When will you finish the program?

14 weeks and counting down to baby boy Sander-Miner (will that be his last name?)! :o)
