Marcus seems to be doing fine. No complaints of sore throat, no fever, nothing that I can see down his throat. So, I guess that's that.
Also, yesterday was my final class at IUK. It seems weird to think of not going back to school for class next week. For a while, I've always had the mindset of "now this [project, paper, test] is done, what's next?" I won't have that preoccupation any more (or at least for a lwhile-I could see myself doing grad school at some point). Graduation is officially next Tuesday morning but I am not going. It seems like such a scam to have to pay $50 for a cap and gown. And, I already had the graduation experience at Millikin, so, no thank you to this one.

We've decided the van is done. We replaced the alternator a few years ago, anyway, and, we have a sneaky feeling that the transmission is going bad too (we have also replaced that once). Now, it's on to hunt for a new-er car. We'll see what we can find.
To top the above off, I got a call from work today saying that effective immediately, graduate nurses have to pass their state boards before they will be allowed to do nursing activities. For me, this means I have to take a Kaplan review class the week of May 12th instead of in June like I had planned. This also means I need to arrange for babysitting for that week-hopefully someone that can take Marcus and Cale to preschool that week.
I realize that many people have to deal with more pressing issues. But, it feels good to write these problems out here-I guess as a stress reliever. Anyway, stay tuned to see what happens...

This would be 2 spiderman toys from Burger King, a transformer from somewhere, and a Marvel action figure named Angel.

He enjoyed his extra nap time.
We loaded up the kids and took them to Deals, a dollar store, where they could pick out what they thought Daddy would like for his birthday. As you can see, Daddy apparently wanted an assortment of firearms (and a glitter baton).
The boys had worked out an arrangement in which Daddy would open the present and then share the gift with them.
So far, the day has been good. I am waiting for the grocer in town to call me and let me know that the pie Andy wanted is in. I would love to bake him one, but, I think it will taste better if someone elso made it.

The weather was so nice today that we took the boys outside, down to the cul-de-sac, to play "hockey". They got to play "baseball" with a couple of kids that were already down there. I know they enjoyed it, and we got to meet another family in the neighbourhood. (This brings the total # of families we know to = 4-seems low, probably something to work on...)
I'm almost done with school. I finish my management clinical on Tuesday. I have 3 projects left, one for each class. But, it's pretty smooth sailing from here until May. The teachers know that we students have pretty much checked out as far as attentiveness in the classroom. Andy starts classes in May, right after I finish. I think the plan is for him to go to Ball State, in Muncie, to finish the prereqs he needs to apply to medical school. He had planned to take them at IUPUI (IU-Purdue Indpls), but the class he needed was full. Ball St. isn't too far away, just in the opposite direction. Those are the plans right now, of course, subject to change.
