Check me out, I won the PE!

I am SO THRILLED. So happy I don’t have to take it again, proud and accomplished and excited. After my not sure what to think reaction to the test, my historically gruesome gpa and college test performances, and my almost last minute freakout, it’s so satisfying to have it OVER and DONE WITH.

I can’t wait to get a stamp and to emboss all my holiday cards. Whoot!

(of course, more practically, this is a REALLY REALLY GOOD THING professionally. It leads to a bonus and perhaps a salary increase and a KarinaJean, P.E. business card, and puts me solidly on the project management track. and I think I might be the only lady PE in the north regional offices of MyCompany! and even more practically, how the HECK did I pull this off when I read 14 books the month before the exam?! Interrobang!

December 2005 Books

The grand finale of all the books I read this year. 96!*** I almost made it to 100! Bet I would have, if I hadn’t started watching DVDs in December.

88. A Murder is Announced by Agatha Christie
89. Cards on the Table by Agatha Christie
90. The Mystery of the Blue Train by Agatha Christie
91. Cat Among the Pigeons by Agatha Christie
92. There is a Tide by Agatha Christie
93. The Murder on the Links by Agatha Christie
94. To Ride Pegasus by Anne McCaffery
95. Pegasus in Flight by Anne McCaffery
96. The Rowan by Anne McCaffery

All of these books were books given to me by my mom or dad and that I wanted to read before donating.

You can access the full set of book lists here I updated with my full 2005 reading list b/c someone said the tag line of my journal (crafts, books, fish sandwiches, and other shiny things) and I realized that heck. I haven’t updated books very frequently. or crafts. but I’ll get to that…

*** edited – this should be a grand total of 97, because I just realized I hadn’t listed a book I read in March 2005. Affluenza: an all consuming epidemic by John de Graaf et. al. [[12/26/06]]
