I have to finish getting ready and get out of here soon.

I think we need a road trip to Sugar's for dinner. It sounds so delicious! What is your recipe for crockpot lasagna?

I had jury duty yesterday and I didn't get picked - thank goodness! I did my civil duty. I also had a meeting at work, right after, so I had to rush there. It was a busy day to say the least. DH did take us out to dinner though, so that made it all worth while!

I just found out today, a day before my test, now the postponing it. I am not very happy about it, since I have been studying so hard, but I guess I will soon be finding out when I will be taking it. I won't get into all of the issues on here, but needless to say, the book I was studying from, was an outdated one and there was new ones, which the info was changed. None of us got them and people failed because of it yesterday and this was because our nurse manager. I will just leave it at that. It's been very frustrating lately. I hope something is done soon.

Anyway, EA is at preschool today, so DH, DS, and I have just been having out. I am going to read a book here shortly. I am doing lasagna in the crockpot and Parmesan zucchini fries, plus breadsticks. I can't wait!

I will check back in later! Hope you're all having a great day!

Local tradition says that on a warm day, you can still smell molasses in the North End.

Went to see CalSTRS to sign retirement papers and all is said and done! My last day of work will be Thursday, January 31, 2013 and my first day of retirement will be Friday, February 1, 2013. YEAH!!! I have to go down to Edward Jones and sign papers to get that special fund rolled over with the other money they have for me. I am getting happier and happier by the minute!
