Rocky?

Maybe that is his name. Check out who we saw wandering down our road the other day. In the middle of the day. Not a good sign. These guys aren't usually out just leisurely walking down the street in the middle of the day. Just in case, I brought in all the pets until this guy was gone.





In other news, I signed up for my first class for my doctoral program - YIKES! I read though all the information and started immediately thinking "What in the hell am I doing?!?!" I know it will be worth it in the end but it is going to be really hard giving up my "regular life" to go back to school. I just can't see wasting an opportunity to get most of my degree paid for so - I'm taking the plunge. I am already starting to freak out thinking about my dissertation. I want to do it around distance education for nursing programs but I haven't really figured it out exactly just yet. I need to do some research around what has already been done.
I also found out that I'll be teaching my first class at the University of Phoenix starting February 22nd. So, I have lots of fun stuff to look forward to!!
Tonight - we are having dinner with Molly and her husband since they are in town. If you don't know Molly - she is awesome! If you are ever in Pensacola you must visit her yarn shop - Yarnside Gathering. I am really looking forward to our dinner tonight! What's everyone else up to this weekend?
Have a great weekend!!!

My boss is starting her doctoral program also. I should teach her to knit, she's going to need a little stress relief.

As for the weekend... it's too cold to do anything other than knit while the Bluegrass pickers come over and do their thing.

Dr. Knit Witch has a nice ring to it.

I don't know where you are going for dinner but be careful on the roads...I can't even get out of my driveway, much less my neighborhood!!

Wow.. sounds like you're gonna be pretty busy soon! But, you're right, it'll all be worth it in the end :) This weekend I get to work and read 8 chapters in my textbook for my class monday night lol... talk about a fun weekend ;)

Oh! That would make her a Knit Witch Doctor!

Then you could do some of those Dr. Pepper commercials. Except with yarn. :-)

I think one of his cousins paid us a visit last night. Good luck with the grad program. I loved going back to school, and in fact, wish I could figure out a way to do it again.
