Last Year

Yesterday was the first day of my last year of law school. Can't wait for this to be over!!

I'm already swamped, and won't catch a break until Thursday... I still need to update my sidebars, but it'll have to wait until then. My loan funds were already disbursed, so I'm looking forward to paying down some of my credit cards!

PineCone Research

I received the below e-mail from PineCone and thought some of you might be interested. They're probably the only survey site from which I've consistently made money!

PineCone Research is growing and we invite you to help! We are offering select members the opportunity to recommend membership to a friend or relative who is NOT a member of their household.

Do you know of households that would like to join the PineCone Research Panel? If so, please FORWARD A COPY of this email to each household you would like to refer so that they may click on the registration link shown below. That household should complete the registration form themselves and submit it. REMEMBER THAT ONLY ONE PERSON PER HOUSEHOLD MAY REGISTER. Multiple registrations of the same Household will void all registrations.

Here is the link to the registration:

As a member in good standing, you've already seen the benefits of being part of PineCone Research. So please, share the benefits of membership with a friend. Don't forget, please don't tell them about any of the products that you have seen in our questionnaires or tried in your home. Remember, it's important that your PineCone Research survey and product testing experiences remain confidential.

If your referral has any questions, they can email us at or click on the attached links to learn more about PineCone Research.


I promised in my previous post to explain why I need to book hotels in France and Germany. Well... because I'm going with M! For two weeks!! I'm excited (many many exclamation points worth ;))!

And no, I can't afford it. Which is why my lovely lovely boy is treating me! It's our 5th anniversary in a few months, and this is his gift. :) He also feels he "owes" me for all the time he's been away (almost 5 months of him working everyday til 12 and most weekends)... It was definitely depressing me for awhile, but I've been ok lately... I know the project is coming to an end, and we've been making the most of the time together we do have.

I do feel he owes me a solid block of alone time once the project's completed, not necessarily a trip, but... who am I to argue? ;) This is a HUGE departure from our conversations/arguments in May, when he didn't want to even consider going anywhere... It's been somewhat less hectic lately, so I guess he took a moment to think about things. I'm very happy this was the outcome. :) I'm doing all the planning, trying to keep that stress away from him (he still has a few more weeks of long hours). I would love to hear your input about interesting sights to see in Paris (off-the-beaten path sights - I have all the main touristy things down)! :)

Obviously, the trip to New York is off; maybe we'll go for Valentine's Day next year? That would fit in with my 5 year plan! ;) Now the only thing left to do is find a full-time job, and lose 20 lbs!
