Happy Birthday Matt!

So, Matt turned 26 today. I hope he had a good day. I woke up early with him, as usual, but this morning we decided to play a little DDR (Dance, Dance Revolution, for those of you who don't know). We used to play all the time, but we haven't really played for a while. We put it on workout mode and danced for around 25 minutes. It felt good to get the blood flowing in the morning. Then, I made Matt a lunch, saw him off, and hit the books. I had my final Biology test today. I don't have to go to the community college campus ever again! (of course, now that I said that, I'm going to have to go for SOME reason, right?)
I had class after I took my test, and Matt beat me home. I hadn't had time to clean up, so I made up for it by making homemade calzones. I made the dough in the breadmaker, and then made a ground beef filling, and cooked them in the oven. They actually turned out very yummy. Matt liked them, and that is what is important. We have enough leftovers for his lunch tomorrow, too, which is a bonus!
Well, after dinner, we had desert, which ended up being orange cranberry muffins. Ooo, they were good. And then Matt opened up his present from me. I wasn't sure what to get him, so I got him this...

I bought the apron at Micheal's and I painted the logo on. :) Don't you think it is cute? I got the exact reaction I was hoping for...he laughed out loud. He was not expecting an apron, that is for sure. I actually messed up on one apron, and I'm going to keep that one for myself. He gets the good one :)

Anyways, not much else going on. I talked to Peggy on Sunday for about 3 hours, which is crazy, but it was a good talk. And I'm glad I got to talk to Jill yesterday, and that Matt was able to help her get her pictures onto her computer. He's such a good brother-in-law, isn't he?

Oh, and those newsletters/graduation announcements I've been working on since the weekend? Well, I will hopefully get most of them in the mail tomorrow. I have an online test to take sometime during the day (I will take my time on this one, I didn't do so well on the last. Tricky questions!) but that is about it. I have class in the afternoon at 4pm, but I should be able to get most of the stuff done I need to before that, right? Sometimes it feels like I just don't have enough time for all the things I need to do. Maybe if it wasn't so cold outside, I would feel like going out more.

Well, that's about it. Kate already told you about Thanksgiving, and since we spent it with her, well, all I'll say is that we had a great time. We played a fun game with Ben's cousins and sister and had a wonderful time. It was a good Thanksgiving.

Ok, I'll talk to you guys later!
