Lana Lately

Hey y'all!
Want an update on my life?

This post is being interrupted for a short, public service announcement.
PLEASE go check to make sure your email is visible on Blogger.  I love all of you and love reading your comments, but it makes me sad when I can't respond to your lovely comments because you're set as noreply-comment@blogger.com
Now back to the regularly scheduled post...

For clarity sake, I'm going to break this update down into sections (feel free to skip over the ones that don't interest you).  

Foster kids: As of right now, we still have three under the age of 3.  
Baby C is still with us because they haven't been able to find a Tribal home for her.  
March will mark one year since we took G & J into our home.

Grad School: I'm halfway done!! August can't come soon enough...

Work: I love the company and am hoping to go full-time (an additional 5 hours) soon. 

Mini-Vaca: I rearranged my schedule and spent a long weekend with a friend in Phoenix.
Friday, we went to a book singing for one of the authors my company represents, which allowed me to mark meeting a Holocaust survivor off of my Bucket List.
Saturday, we went to a Medieval Festival and got hit by a biker on the way home.  Yes, you read that correctly--the biker hit US.  Luckily, everyone was okay.
Sunday, we spent some time with his family and he dropped me off at the airport.  
What I thought would be a short layover at LAX turned into a paid overnight stay in LA (and a $500 travel voucher). Gotta love overbooked flights!
I finally made it home on Monday.
Overall, I had a blast and can't wait to go back : )

Until next time, 
The Intelligent Blonde

  7. I still think it is so amazing that you take care of foster children! It takes such wonderful & amazing people to do such a thing! & how do you like being an MBA student. I have been toying with the idea to get my MBA for quite some time now but I just don't know.
