So, apparently it's almost Thanksgiving and I am continuing the slacker blogger tradition. I'd like to say it's because I've been really busy, but you could look around my house and call me a liar.

So I'm going to be honest here. I finished school, essentially, and have just been lazy since. I finished my clinicals November 7th and had all my assignments turned within a week of that. I studied a little for my practice exam and took it today. Passed the first time, with a nervous knot in my stomach and a headache creeping on. It's not like it's a pass/fail thing, but it was timed, which always makes me nervous. Plus I want to be done so if I failed it, I would have to study more and take it again. At this point, I'm hoping the school gets everything together so I can get my name sent in Dec. 1 for my comprehensive exam. I plan to chill for the rest of this week then hit the books hard to be ready for that test. It is pass/fail which is just way too much pressure if you ask me.

Let's see, what else has been going on? My scale has declared mutiny. At least I hope so and that I'm not really gaining a pound a day. I've opted to ignore the mutinous bastard for the rest of this week.

I found white hair........ on my head! And not just one, but seven! At least that's when I stopped counting since I finally recognized if I kept looking there would be more.

The fam is coming over for Thanksgiving which I suppose means I have to clean my house. Damn.

I've decided we need to implement some changes around the home front. My chicklets are turning into ungrateful little heathens. Perhaps this week of thanksgiving is the time to teach thankfulness.

Some reflection on needed changes coming soon........

Where did it go? I'm pretty sure there was one but we just skipped right over it.
Or rather, I was too busy to post about it.
Pee Wee cheerleading ended with a cheer competition last weekend.
I am finishing up my clinicals. Have caught 40 babies so far and need less than 40 hrs to be done.
Which unfortunately means I'll have to start studying soon for my biggest test ever.

We did go to a Fall farm festival a couple weeks ago and helped celebrate cousin Braeden's 6th birthday at Magic Castle, which I would never recommend unless you have a saint's worth of patience or maybe some Xan*x.
I think there are pictures somewhere.

All the little cousins went trick or treating last night, and as you can tell from these pics, getting 5 kids to look at the camera at once is not easy.
I think Mia might have been looking in the first pic but you can't tell since her beak is in her face.

We didn't have alot of luck around our house last year so we went to a smaller local neighborhood where the houses are closer together and were more likely to participate.

Plus, I liked checking out the beautiful houses. Makes me almost want to move there except for what would I do with my chickens, and how could I afford the taxes? Anyway......

The boys discussing next year's costumes. Apparently they think Ghostbusters would be pretty cool.

The big boys stayed near home and went out with their buddies. Tanner did his own makeup while Travis basically threw a bandana over his face and called that a costume, hence, the lack of a picture.

Now to keep them from having candy for breakfast every day.....
