I'm joining in on a blog hop with The Gnome's Mom to share a little bit about the life I lead here. The Gnome's Mom is one of my favorite blogs to read and follow on a regular basis as well. If you're a blogger and would like to link up, feel free! And add us on Twitter with the hashtag #MMM
Here we are again. Manic Monday. Today seems slightly less manic than my last few weeks. I am nearing the end of my medical transcription course. I'm now at about 92% total completion, so the end is VERY near! I am hoping to finish up before Fuss turns 2. If I can do that, I will have finished it in about 18 months. The course is supposed to take 9-12. Of course, the people who decided that didn't have a toddler/high-need child in their home. And Fuss has certainly ALWAYS claimed a lot of attention! Two extensions later, and I'm almost done! I'm 67% though the final module of the course. As long as I get in 2 hours of transcriptions a day, I will at least finish before the end of this last extension.
The other thing is that we're planning Fuss's 2nd birthday party. She picked out Dora as her theme and I'm taking it from there. I have already decided to do a cupcake party. 1. Because cupcakes are small and easier for little kids to manage, but 2. Because it's cheaper than buying a cake! I can make my own cupcakes. I have a pan already and have bought a few boxes of cake mix. I have been spacing the purchases of party supplies out over the last few weeks so it's not crazy expensive. The star sprinkles will be the, um, star attraction. However, Fuss picked up a container of "Princess" sprinkles at the store and her Grandmommy bought them for her. They will make a nice addition, though, as they are pearls and pink, etc. Fuss is so excited! We can't say the word "party" around here without her starting to talk about her "party cakes" and her "Dora party." Sadly, we're still about a month away! Oh well, I can't help but let her be excited. So, that's where we stand right now. Invitations will be sent out soon for our family and close friends. Unfortunately, we won't get to have a large party because we're having it at my in-law's house, but I know Fuss will have a blast anyway.
