Its nothing personal, its just economics

I have been awfully quiet around here. This is because I am busy. Busy back at school.. yeah - school! With a 4.5 month old, crazy!! But - why not?

In June I said to myself "Gee this whole two kid thing isn't as challenging as I thought, why not have a crazy life and head back to school?" (I didn't - who would say that?)

So I am only doing one unit a semester.

I'm doing an online course in Business Accounting. I'm studying Microeconomics this teaching period.

It's crazy.

I have no idea what I am doing.

It is the best fun.

There is SO much reading. I think I may die from reading.

Can you die from reading too much?

It is a definite change in direction.

Contemporary Arts with a major in Photography to Accounting. ACCOUNTING .. like a bonified smart person. (Even more surprising they let me in... are they letting anyone into University these days or is it just me?)

But I realised something over the last 5 years while I've had the longest study break in history...

I love art, but I am also good at other things. Other things which don't mean going on campus to study, other things which will give me the flexibility in the workforce I am looking for when I graduate.

The best thing: I got heaps of credit.

There are a few other life changing decisions going on at our place.

But I have to go read 3 chapters of a text book so I better go...

wrapping up 5 years

Next month will be our 5 year anniversary.

I am pretty sure I absolutely have to be one of the luckiest girls alive.

In all the mess of life I have a true gentleman by my side.

What's changed in 5 years? Not much really.. 

Except now we get to mug on each other over our two greatest accomplishments.*

The Happiest Boy

Happy Birthday to our favourite son.

You are kind.

You have character.

You are the best big brother little Cheli could ask for.

You are the funniest cat I know, with the best facial expressions this side of the world.

5 Things we love about Boy.

1. How you say Tiger with a C. "Ciger"

2. How you mug on Cheli ALL the time.

3. How you do yoga with us and on your own.

4. How you wear a singlet now because it's cold. (An upgrade from just undies)

5. Your shy smile, your cheeky smile... well just your smile. (with a side of dimples of course)

We just love ya, and we know you love our guts back.
