Happy Labor Day!


Happy Labor Day!

Lyrics from One of my Favorite Songs!

As we go marching, marching, in the beauty of the day,
A million darkened kitchens, a thousand mill lofts gray,
Are touched with all the radiance that a sudden sun discloses,
For the people hear us singing: Bread and Roses! Bread and Roses!
As we go marching, marching, we battle too for men,
For they are women's children, and we mother them again.
Our lives shall not be sweated from birth until life closes;
Hearts starve as well as bodies; give us bread, but give us roses.
As we go marching, marching, unnumbered women dead
Go crying through our singing their ancient call for bread.
Small art and love and beauty their drudging spirits knew.
Yes, it is bread we fight for, but we fight for roses too.
As we go marching, marching, we bring the greater days,
The rising of the women means the rising of the race.
No more the drudge and idler, ten that toil where one reposes,
But a sharing of life's glories: Bread and roses, bread and roses.
Our lives shall not be sweated from birth until life closes;
Hearts starve as well as bodies; bread and roses, bread and roses.

Wow!

August sure flew by quickly!

Guess looking forward to something, being nervous, and having a whole lot of fun will do that to ya!

Tomorrow will be my 3rd week of law school!

I have my first "paper" due tomorrow morning by 9am! It's done! I actually worked on it before tonight!!!!! Yea!!!! Productivity can work!!!!!

I spent all day Saturday in the library... I'm glad I have at least something to show for it... as I still didnt get ALL of my work done for this week. I'm trying to stay ahead of the game...just for good measure! I'm sure I will be back on schedule tomorrow though!



Our little Lady took her first steps Thursday!!!!!!!!!!!!!

She was standing, holding onto the couch.... she turned herself around and took two steps towards me!!!!!!!!!! She still prefers to crawl....but I have no doubt that she will want to walk soon! At least I hope so!!!!!



I have spent a lot of time watching tv this weekend... not to just watch tv...but I've been watching all of the Gustav coverage. I missed the Katrina stuff... I knew it was happening...but I didnt really pay a lot of attention to it... I figured it was just another hurricane.... hmmm... it wasnt.... and I found the aftermath amazing.... so, I wanted to really watch this one.



I'm bummed I didnt see Obama today. We were supposed to go to the parade and such...but... someone... not me... *cough*.... decided they didnt want to go.... *cough*



I did get a new pack to put my books in though! My old roller bag just wasnt cutting it. Ive had semesters where I had quite a few books...but wow... this really takes the cake... The books i have now are leather bound, thick, and quite heavy.... the zipper kept splitting on my other bag...and I didnt want to risk breaking it since we use it for other things. If it didnt look so stupid I would prefer to use a suitcase. I usually dont really care what people think about me...but... I think that would cross the line!



Well... I'm convinced it's gonna be a good week! Supposed to be in the 60's by the end of the week!

I'm ready to go!!!!!!!

I got in my rocking chair all by myself!!!!
