My Weight Loss Journey

Oh Man, Where Do I Start????

As I reflex back on last week it really is a blur but my first week of school is in the books and my head is still spinning. The first day was pretty much signing endless amounts of papers stating we understood this and that. We got homework right away in every class. One of the classes is an online class which is fine but it took me 2 days to learn how to use the online site which is called blackboard. Thank God I have made a friend in class who has taken online classes before so she helped me muddle my way through blackboard and taught me how to understand somewhat of how blackboard works, (thanks Lindsey)!!!! The online class is on Tuesdays, so Tuesdays I don't have to be at school until 2pm which is sooooooooooooo nice...(that will enable me to hopefully keep my blog updated otherwise, I am doing homework pretty much until I go to bed at night which does not leave me anytime for blogging).

All the teachers are very nice and helpful. But....wow, do they cover a lot of information FAST and FURIOUS!!!!!!!!! I KNOW I will get used to the pace but until then, I am trying to keep my head in the game and keep up. I have been able to get all my homework done on schedule but there is always a new chapter waiting in the wings with a new deadline......wheeeeeee.....it sure does not leave any time for primin. I am hoping after this first nine weeks is over (which is when the homework load is the strongest) things will slow down a bit so I can make some Christmas items for our craft show in November.

House Progress

To top it all off, we went home last weekend because we have to keep the house progress mov'in along. We picked out our paint colors for each room and this coming weekend, we will be going home to paint up a storm. We have to get the whole interior of the house painted and ready for the next step which will be my husband laying our maple floors. We will have 3 days to paint because of Labor Day, the extra day will be nice........we will certainly need it!!!!!!

Dry Walling almost done....it looks like a real house now:)

A view of the kitchen and dining room....love it!!!!

Our bedroom.

Our bathroom.

And here are our color choices. Of course there is one color choice per swatch but it would take me too long to point out which color we chose from each swatch so.....you will have to tune in next week when I update my blog because I will have pictures of our finished painting project.

School Daze

I took a few pictures I would like to share with you from last week....my first week of school.

My mom was not here to take my first day of school picture so I had to take it myself, lol. So here I was just before I left for my first day of school. Sorry, I know it's cheezy but I wanted it to remember how I looked my first day....hopefully I won't have blue or pink hair before this is all over with. My goal is to say "NO" but you never know???????

On Friday, we starting learning how to wrap a perm. I really liked it!!!!!! I am going to LOVE the hands-on....the homework...not so much!!!!!! Here is a picture of my mannequin head...not bad for my first try.

This Friday we are going learn the rest of the wrapping process....can't wait.

In haircutting class we learned sectioning for a blunt cut which we will be doing on Thursday.....I had taken my sections down here but took a pic of my gal anyway just for the heck of it.

Here is a picture of where I sit and who I sit by. Where the blond mannequin head is is where my desk it. Jessica and Lindsey are in the back ground.

An here is some mannequin heads all lined up ready for whatever is in store for them.

Well, that's about it for now. As you can see I will be very busy this Fall between school, going home to work on the house and trying to fit in primin I will probably be meeting myself coming and going. Speaking of busy, I better get going and start my on-line class for this week....I have A LOT to do. Have a great week everyone.....Blessings, Rhonda

You go girl. You are doing great. Very pretty picture of you but I do think you would still look great with PINK hair!
Your new house is coming along nicely. You will have it finished before you know it.

Memories, I went to cosmetology school so I remember what you are going through. Just hang in there. And I graduated from nursing school in 2005, and if I can do it you can do it. I am so proud of you!!! hang it there!!!

Rhonda said...

Thank you Amy, I am very excited to see the house finished and even more excited when we can move back home and live there!!!!

Thank you for your support and kind words about my schooling, it is hard but will be so worth it. Right now though, the homework is brutal!!!! There is a gal that I am becoming pretty good friends in my class who is also going to school to be a nurse, she took a year off so she could get her Cosmetology degree because she always wanted to do hair. So there will be another hairdresser/nurse out there lovin what they do. Blessings everyone....Rhonda
