Back to School!

(Kitty) The very things that happen in life to give us something to tell you about are the very things keeping us from making frequent blog posts. But this one is just too good to miss telling you! As of today, I am officially a grad student at University of Technology, Sydney!!!

I am enrolled in the Master of Arts in Creative Writing program. School starts next week!! I'll probably have classes on Wednesday and Thursday nights from 6pm to 9pm. And I already own one of the required books!

Also, our friend Debbie and her friend Calista arrived on Monday to visit us for two weeks. They are seeing every possible interesting sight to see! It's only been three days and I'm already exhausted from trying to keep up with them! LOL! But then, I'm not on vacation and I'm also trying to get work done while trying to hang out with them as much as I can.

Last night we took them to a local pub, The Doncaster, for dinner and a celebratory drink. (I got the official school acceptance letter yesterday.) My friend Paula is taking us all (John got the day off) to the Blue Mountains Friday to show us the sights there. And my friend Shannon is taking us girls down the South Coast on Monday. Then Debbie and Calista are going to try to see the Great Barrier Reef and the tropical rainforest for a couple days, then back here to see more things with us.

It's going to be a GREAT but exhausting two weeks for me with friends and school all happening at the same time. But I am so excited about it all I can hardly stand it! LOL!
