As you've heard in my last post, I hate dirty dishes! I can unload a dishwasher no problem, but dirty dishes... yuck!! I know it's just food, and I am well aware my hands are washable, germs aren't going to permeate my gloves anytime soon.. I just hate dirty dishes!
I came across this today and it got me thinking about how lucky we are. I have wonderful fresh food in my house and a wonderful husband to share meals with! How blessed! It may help me change my mind about dirty dishes... a little :)

YAY!! I officially rocked my accounting final! I got a 90! I am sooo proud of myself. It was such a hard class. Now I just have to sit back and wait for this extremely slow teacher to grade the rest of my work.
I have the next week off between classes. I really need to be a week ahead since I'm confident that getting my tonsils out and the Marine Corps ball will push me behind. So my goals for this week are to go ahead and start on my school work and get the house as clean as possible before the surgery. I'll admit, I'm terrible at house cleaning. There are some things I don't mind, but then things like the dishes that I hate. Dirty dishes gross me out so much. I wish I were a master at house keeping!! If anyone has any tips, let me know!

I am just one test away from being done with this term! Sadly, it's an accounting test. I'm so ready to get it over with. I just need to retain all of my accounting knowledge until my next accounting class in January. Next week I'll start the second half of my semester. It feels like school is going to go on forever! I know it won't though. There is a light at the end of the tunnel. And I will get a break as I'm planning to take off a semester after the upcoming deployment. The hardest thing about school is just getting back into it. I only took off two years between college classes but it seemed like so much longer. And anyone that says online college is easier is crazy! Having done both, I can confidently say this is harder. It was so much easier to show up to class and do what was asked of me. Now I feel like the teacher and the student!
While I'm not excited about the reason, I am happy that this week we bought tickets to fly home in December! I am so excited to go "home" with Travis for a bit. It will have been two years for him! I just wish we weren't going to miss fall. Fall in Georgia is so beautiful! I've always loved the crisp air and the leaves changing. There is no such thing in California. The palm trees are always green and the grass is always hanging on for dear life.
It will be a wonderful, hopefully relaxing, trip with my great husband and family.

It's been awhile. I've been neglecting my poor blog.
Well, Travis is home from the field and working his butt off at work! I am still a bit swamped in school work but I can see the light at the end of the tunnel! The first term of the semester is almost over. Three more weeks of accounting! Until my next accounting class that is.. But next term should be easier.
Last night we went to the beach to see the waves. The red tide is in the San Diego waters and at night when the algae is disturbed (waves) they glow a neon blue. So just for a moment as the wave starts to break it glows neon blue. It was very cool! None my photos turned out well but it was fun to see it. The neon waves were pretty against the black looking water.
