Mine was a bit hampered by the death of my uncle, but other than that it was pretty good. I didn't go to see the fireworks this year -- I was just too exhausted after the week's events.
The BF and I did grill some awesome wings, though. Check these out:
Could ya'll hear the sigh of relief when I got the grade for my mid-term exam? Thankfully, the instructor graded on the curve. However, due to our ability to "challenge" questions on the exam, we all lost 2 points on the curve. I earned an 89% on the exam. And I think with the extra 4 points for the curve, I actually ended up with a 91, which I am very happy with!
My scores for last week's quiz, written paper, and online posting equated to.... *drum roll please* ....... 100%! I haven't gotten one of those since the beginning of the semester. Call me pleased!! *big grin*
Five weeks down, three to go!

Job #2 is still having financial difficulties, and more than likely will be filing bankruptcy. As it stands, the bank has to approve payroll expenditures on a week-by-week basis. That means we never know what day we're getting paid. Their huge line of credit (almost $1million) has been maxed and they haven't been paying suppliers or loans.
Last month, the project manager and a son of one of J2's owners got together to form a new company. What is "funny" about this situation is that the PM can't stand the son -- so I'm wondering what's in it for the PM. Incidentally, the very same day they got the paperwork started for the new company, they put an ad on craigslist that sounded very similar to the one I applied to when I was hired for the job. I talked to the secretary about it, and she asked them if she was going to have a job... both sets of owners (J2 and new company) have been evasive. The PM told her that if she wanted a job, she'd have to take a pay cut. So I'm thinking if she has to take a pay cut, they definitely won't be keeping me because I make a whole lot more than the secretary does. Last week, I asked him directly if I was going to have a job and he said I would. However, I think he's stalling so that he can utilize my experience until the new company gets up and running. It's a mixed up mess!
Meanwhile, I've been lining up some alternatives... Hoping that something pans out!
Surprisingly, I have done a bit of stitching. I'm half done with the LK ornament for HOE. I put it down in order to finish the stitching on my envelope. I am still looking for a cute alphabet to do the addresses with. Since these are for exchanges, I can't show any pics yet. Blossom is sitting patiently on the back of my loveseat waiting to be worked on again.
