Oh, Thank Heaven!!! -- part 2...  
...My Mom got a call from the doctor last night and thankfully the tests she took for her kidneys were negative, so at least the worst that we expected isn't a possibility now. Whew! :) Thank you all for your kind thoughts and prayers - I really don't know what I'd do if anything bad ever happened to her.

Speaking of being thankful - Sydney is back to her old self again after that awful tick incident. She's eating, jumping on furniture, and basically being the demanding dog she once was. :) It's nice to have her back. :) And we've been checking, but we haven't found anymore ticks, so hopefully the problem is gone.

And I'm not sure why, but I got into a HUGE "I want to go back to school" mood today at work... It was strange - it all started when I tried to apply for those adult ed web design classes (remember they canceled my last class?) for the new semester. I spoke with an instructor who told me the class seemed too general for my needs and I should enroll in the credit classes they offer. So, after looking at their catalog online, I thought "Wow - I might actually be able to get a second degree in this..." since I already took most of the pre-requisite classes for my BA... Well, I'm still thinking about it, but I'm thinking a second degree in digital media production is not a bad thing, all in all. I don't even know if it's feasible (while still working full time) but I'm going to call tomorrow to set up a meeting with a counselor to talk about it... :P

And woo hoo! It looks like Julie Ann's show "Line of Fire" was picked up by a station in the UK. :) I hesitate to put the info on her site, though since Kevin once told me not to believe everything about the show that I read. I guess it's better if I wait until I hear it more officially. :P BTW, Julie Ann's episodes of "Taken" are going to begin re-airing next week Sunday on Sci Fi (this week they're only up to episode three - and she's in four, five, and six) if anyone wants to see GREAT acting, tune in, Julie's wonderful in the role. :)

Again, thanks for all of your prayers for my Mom. :) Big *hugs* to you all! :)

GLad to hear Sydney and your Mom are better! As far as school, my advice is to GO FOR IT! Even if you only take 1 class per semester
you still are that much further ahead. Check with your human resourse Dept at work, Maybe they would be willing to help with the tuition. If not, if you are using any of the education in your current job, then you may deduct if off of your income tax as well as your text book as an educational expense. Good Luck

Thanks so much Barb and thanks for your thoughts and prayers for my Mom - we're so thankful that she's okay. :) And about school, yesterday I collected a whole bunch of information about classes, degree programs, even Masters programs. I think now I have to let it all sink in and figure where I really want to go with this and how I'll be able to afford it. Unfortunately, my HR probably won't help with tuition since the area of my study is completely unrelated to my current job. :( But thank you for the luck, I know I'll be needing it! :)
