It's going to be random, so get ready!
Yesterday was my 1/2 birthday! Happy half (now belated) birthday to me! My Ruggedly Handsome Mister remembered the momentous occasion. And that means a LOT because he doesn't believe much in the 1/2 birthday. Today I will get ice cream for myself to celebrate!

We ordered hot sub sandwiches at a pizza place for dinner last night. We waiting thirty-five minutes for our order. And then another ten or so, because they were cold when we got them. Funny! Poor husband was starving. It was all worth it though when Guinness came by and put our names in the books.

The red dress came. I'm not sure that I LOVE it... so I might keep looking. But, I'm going to have to wait until Wednesday evening or Thursday or sometime later because I should study a bunch.

I would appreciate prayers until Wednesday, because I really need to do well on this final I have coming up. Up to a point, how I do on the final will be how I do in the class, even though its only worth 1/2 of our grade. I didn't do as well as I would have liked on the midterm, which is discouraging, but I'm studying more and trying to get it together for the final. I need to focus and work hard and Handsome is not feeling well so I'm also trying to avoid getting sick!

After Wednesday happens, I'll be a happy blogger. I have about one whole weeks worth of good post material stewing in my head. Everything from recipes, to meal planning, to graduation invitations, and workout reviews. I'm suppressing the thoughts in favor of studies.

I'm thinking on these verses for encouragement...

 “Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us.” Hebrews 12:1

 “However, I consider my life worth nothing to me, if only I may finish the race and complete the task the Lord Jesus has given me--the task of testifying to the gospel of God's grace.” Acts 20:24

“I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 3:14

For now my task is finishing this test, and thus, finishing school. I need to run this final lap as hard as I can. Off to shower, go to church, and hit the books.

I'm not here. I'll be running this race, but I'll be back soon...

So, I LOVE that you celebrate your half birthday! I do, too! Well, now I'm down to quarter birthdays 'cause I went and got married on my half birthday; my real birthday is Valentine's Day, my half birthday is my anniversary... so I settle for quarter birthdays; I've got one coming up, in fact! ;)

Happy belated half birthday!
