Done with this semester...

I'm finished with the fall semester at UAA and am happy to announce that I got a 4.0! I am so relieved about that since the only class I thought I might have a "B" in was Senior Seminar, which was also the one class I needed an "A" in to graduate with Honors in history through PHI ALPHA THETA, the history honor society. So I breathed one big sigh of relief and am now on my first day off from work post-school. I've been skiing a bunch this past week, and would go today except it is ridiculously windy and we need to wax our skis, which we will do this evening.
I've spent the entire day cleaning my house. Not just cleaning I guess, but also going through stuff and getting rid of stuff. I cleaned the bathroom, the kitchen, our bedroom, washed all our bedding, towels and clothes, and cleaned up our living room and put everything back in its place. Then I went through our second bedroom and threw away/got rid of about three garbage bags full of stuff. Another huge sigh of relief, since we will be moving sometime next year and need to start weeding stuff out that we don't want to move. I've also been baking cookies like crazy, and can't wait to bake even more for those who are flying in to appreciate.
Here's a few pictures of everything I've been up to:

It's a winter wonderland here! Hope everyone else is having a fabulous winter and a happy holiday season


  1. Wanna wax my skiis tonight too? So proud of my big sissy getting a 4.0- esp in that senior seminar class- every time I talked to you you were writing a paper for that stupid class. Cant wait to be home and enjoy the holidays with you! Love <3

  2. Wow, want to bring some of that industrious cleaning (and cleaning out) to my house?

    Great job on the 4.0!

  3. Uh huh! There are those of us who live here year 'round, day in and day out, who'd love some home-made molasses cookies too!

    Congrats on the 'With Honors' graduation! Your hard work, passion for History (and that library of books you have) paid off, didn't it?

  4. Hooray! Congrats!
    To where will you be moving?!
    See you soon...
