Friday Favorites #2


Well, it's my second week of Friday favorites with Janana Bee. We are to post things that got us through the week. Friday is the day of the week to take pause and say, "hey, these are the things that got me through the week this far and thank goodness the weekend is right around the corner."

Monday

I am grateful to the hubby for waking up at 5:45 AM to take care of the little ones for school. He dressed them, fed them, and packed their lunch, and then walked them to the bus stop to catch the 7 AM bus to school.



It would have been a very difficult task for me, as I was sleeping off the monthly cramps. How cruel Mother Nature can be!



Tuesday

Thank you Amazon.com for sending me ‘New Moon’ by Stephenie Meyer. The 48-hour wait was long enough. I now have to take my finals by the end of the week before I can delve into you and figure out the continuing plot to the Twilight trilogy.



Wednesday

Took the risky trip to Richmond with the hubby driving and trying to keep him awake. You know the story. I’ve had a bad dream since that we had crashed with hubby behind the wheel. That’s for another post.



Thursday

Grateful that my child (Tamara) is getting the hang of school. With only seven weeks left to school, it’s a relief to see that my threats and warnings of “no Wii time” have paid off.



Grateful also to the many people who have read and responded to my posts this week. You all are too kind!



Friday

Took my final and aced it. Got a 96%! That was for one class, the other is due by Sunday. Uh yeah, it’s an internet class. Can you see me going to campus now with so much to do?!?



Glad to know that my muscles can still hold the big girl frame up when challenged by Jillian on the Wii. Ha! And she thinks that she is so tough.



*groan whine* I ache all over!



I hope that you all enjoyed your week as well. Have a great weekend!

Congrats on the 96% on the final! /cheers and /applause! Have you read much more to New Moon yet? Beware, Bella is really whiny in this book. :P After you are finished with Twilight, have you considered reading the Sookie Stackhouse books? They are very good too (and actually have like a few sex scenes even) lol.

BIBI said...

Oh Yeah!! Sounds good to me. I also heard that Bella was real whiny in this book (based on reviews on Amazon.com), but I still want to read it.
I've heard of these Sookie Stackhouse books as well. I just might look into them. Especially since you said that they are good.

Thanks for the comment and the congrats on the exam. IT WAS HARD!! Haha!

I was the worst student. I just signed up for a course and I get so nervous. I never learned how to study and I'm really determined to not let it get to me this time

Congrats on your exam. Well done

Lucy said...

Don't you just love it when your husband does a chore that typically you do, it really is nice!

Glad you survived your drive.

Well, at least the last seven weeks will go relatively smooth? right?

Not into the whole Twilight thing but enjoy your new book.

A huge CONGRATS!!!! on that exam grad!! Doesn't that just feel great.

Rachel said...

But's it's a good ache, right? And way to go on the final! :)

carma said...

It is always good when threats and warnings start to pay off ;-)
You are kickin' some serious butt at school. Good work!

Charles Gramlich said...

OK, now you've put me to shame. All I did in my blog post today was whine. Woah is me! ;)

*Akilah Sakai* said...

Good job woman! 96%! W00t!!

When you ace your next final, enjoy the Twilight book. That's a nice way to end the testing - curled up with a good read.

Tina said...

Glad to hear that you had a pretty decent week. I completely failed at posting anything this week. UGH. May have to make up the Friday Favorites.

Janna Bee said...

Good job on the test, and great favorites!

That sounds like a real treat for you to get from your hubby.

Great Favorites! You should link up on my page!

Hope your weekend is going well!

Christine said...

96% wow, you're smart, congrats. busy week you had.

Brenda Lou said...

Congrats on acing your final!!! Now I LOVED the Twilight series, but Bella aggravated me to no end right up until the last book. There were times I could've just wrung her neck! LOL But I couldn't put any of the books down!

Lady Jane said...

First time here and I really enjoyed your positive thoughts about the week. What a great way to think about things instead of stating what went wrong. I too recommend the Sookie Stackhouse books by Charlaine Harris. I love them. They are fun:) Look forward to more.

Lilly said...

96% you star, that is fantastic. You have much to be thankful for and I cannot believe your little ones catch the bus at 7am, ouch! your husband sounds a keeper too!

BIBI said...

Thanks Jessica at bernthis.com. I know exactly how you feel. I just signed up for the next semester and I am a nervous wreck. I start April 13!

Thanks for your comment!!

BIBI said...

Oh yeah Lucy, it felt great. He can really show his sweet side when he wants (or at least when I am not bothering him). :)

Thanks for the comment!

BIBI said...

Definitely Rachel! Thanks !

BIBI said...

Thanks Carma. I hope my child does not think I am crazy beyond belief when school is done! It's for her own good! LOL!

Thanks for the comment!

BIBI said...

Oh it's okay Charles! We are allowed some self-wallowing at least once a week! ;)

Thanks for the comment!

BIBI said...

Oh yeah Akilah! That's exactly what I have been doing for the last two days - reading!

I have to wind down and take advantage of the two week break before I start my other classes for spring on April 13th. Wish me luck!

Thanks for the comment!

BIBI said...

Hey it's okay Tina! We all get into a slump now and then. This week will be better for you!

Thanks for your comment!

BIBI said...

Awwww thanks Janna Bee! I thought I was linking to your page, I am so sorry for not doing so last Friday.

I will do better this coming up Friday!

Thanks for the comment!

BIBI said...

Busy week indeed Christine! It's a normal occurrence now and I am so used it by now that I don't know anything else. I even feel lost when I take some little time to rest! LOL!

Thanks for the comment!

BIBI said...

Thanks Brenda Lou, I am hoping to love the series as well. And Bella is VERY whiny in book two, but awwww well. Like you I couldn't put it down! Hahaha!

Thanks for the comment!

BIBI said...

Why hello Lady Jane! Thanks for visiting. I hope to see more of you.

Yes, the ingenious idea was Janna Bees' idea. She is incredible! You should visit her!:)

I will definitely be checking out the Sookie Stackhouse books. Thanks for the recommendation.

And thanks again for the comment!

BIBI said...

Thanks Lilly. I feel like a star and the hubby has been acting really proud of me. The counseling MUST be working. :) I guess I will be keeping him. Hahahaha!

Yes, 7 AM is killing me, and I will be soooo happy when school ends!

Thanks for the comment!
