ETA: Emily and her due date...

Hey, looky...a post from me!
Been a busy month. Too much happening at work, lots of people announcing pregnancies, and trying to get caught up enough to head down to Orlando and see my nephew being born.
In case you were wondering, here are the pregnant ladies and due dates...
My sister Shannon - due 12/22, inducing next Thursday (my anniversary!) the 15th. (Boy)
Sandra - February 17th (Boy)
Julie - April 10th (Boy)
Darcy - April 15th (Girl)
Carey - May 4th (Boy)
Danielle - May 6th (Boy)
Sam Kagy - May 8th (?)
Jen Charles - May ? (?)
Emily (from work) July 9th (?)
Mary - July 17th (?)

I just found out that someone is reading this stuff...that makes me smile.
(Thanks Danielle)
I baked like crazy today. I picked up one of the youth girls and we had some quality time. Vance and the boys were getting the wood floor installed in the Bennage's bedroom, so Sandra and Adah stayed over in the guest room last night. Poor girls, didn't sleep a wink. But Adah had a blast at the Nutcracker this morning. It was supposed to be an abbreviated 'Children's version', but it was still 1 1/2 hours long!

I'm trying to figure out if I have time this week to work on a packet to submit for an the Southeast Region New Advisor Award for the National Academic Advising Association. I have zero time to do it, but I'm really tempted to try. I think if I work late through Wednesday I can pull it off. I'm tempted. It's a great honor to be nominated (really!) 'cuz it's by your peers. I found out I was the only one at FSU to be nominated by two different people. So I kinda feel like I'd be letting them down if I didn't submit my stuff. The thing is, is that it's a lot of paperwork to get in order, and I have to write a 'personal statement' AND update my resume', which I haven't even looked at since I started this job 2 years ago. The packet has to arrive in Atlanta by Friday, and since I'm leaving town first thing Thursday, I'd have to express mail it Wednesday afternoon.
I really appreciate being appreciated at work. The folks I work with are really good at letting you know when you're doing a good job. I found out one of my students nominated me for the FSU Advising Award. I hear that packet is a piece of work too, but if I do this one, I'll be more than ready for the other, right?

I guess it's time to go.
