Random Stuff

My parents are coming for the Easter weekend today. I am pretty excited. I haven't seen them since reading week in February, so it'll be nice. I got up this morning and put a roast in the crockpot so that we can have a half decent supper when they get here. Actually, I shouldn't say that, my roommates and I eat pretty healthily. We have to because of my swimming. If we didn't, I'd pass out and waste away to nothing in practice.
Christena did a mad cleaning of the main house yesterday while I was studying for my bio exam. My room is a disaster though, so I will have to tackle that before they get here. They don't expect things to be spotless, but I would like things to be presentable. I think Jetta will be happy to see them. She always gets soooooo excited and pouts when they leave. The cats have only met them once, but Loki took a liking to my dad, even though my dad does not like cats, and Sisu attached herself to my mom. Ashley and I were going to take Jetta and Medley to the local shelter's Easter egg hunt for the dogs tomorrow, but she went home so that won't be happening. I don't think I want to go by myself. It would be more fun with more than one dog. It is a fundraiser for the shelter. It was kind of a cute idea.
Our friend, Jeevan, who is currently in Australia working, phoned yesterday morning as I was heading out the door to the massage therapist's. I only got to talk to her for about 10 minutes, but it was great to talk to her. Ch4ristena and Jeevan talked for about an hour and a half! I don't want to see that phone bill. I think I would like to go somewhere abroad to work for six months or a year; kind of the way she is. It would be interesting. Ever since I started travelling with swimming, I have gotten "itchy feet" and can't seem to stay still. I love it so much! Hopefully I'll be able to do more of it in the future. This year has been a little dry for travelling to exciting places. :) Although, even if we go to a new city in Ontario I have a fun time exploring their little restaurants and such things. So, I guess things can become exciting if you know how to make them that way.
My biology prof emailed me my mark this morning and I was absolutely shocked and thrilled at the results. I got an A- isn't that exciting?! I should have no problems getting into massage therapy school with a mark like that. *breaths sigh of relief* I have three more exams to go. For some reason my exam schedule is really late. I don't end up finishing until the 22-yes, an exam on a Satturday, how evil-and that is really late. Well, I better get going. I need a shower and then I must rustle up some lunch.
Have a great Easter...or whatever you do this weekend just enjoy the time off.:)

Laura and girls: thanks! I hope your Easter was good. Ours was very enjoyable. I ate soooo much! And Jetta went for plenty of walks with her grandpa, AKA my dad.
Coffee Addict: I visited Esburg...I think that is how it is spelled, in 2004 for a swim meet. It was so beautiful! My mom came to Canada when she was 3 and my Dad is from Finn descent. I know a very little bit of Portuguese...I can understand my mom and grandparents when they are speaking to each other. I wish I knew more: some day I will learn. My grandpa on my dad's side came to Canada from Finnland when he was 15. It's an interesting mix. :)
