Thank you. :)

LOL! Isn't that the truth! The good news is it looks as if I will be going back to school in the fall. :) woo hoo! I have been out of school for the last year and very ready to go back.

So are you in the new apt now? If so how do you like it?

I actually didn't like the sprouted wheat bread. It tasted a bit dry and just had a really overpowering flavor, in my opinion. I don't know if it was just the brand or what. It ended up getting moldy on my shelf. Haha.

sorry for my late reply!! It has been a crazy couple of weeks.
:) yay for you with graduation coming up! :) That is great. :)

And how wonderful about the apt! :) It is so fun to live in an apt, although I have roommates, I can't wait to rent a place of my own. :)

So how are things going for you?
