NOW, I can relax! At least for a few weeks…

It is Tuesday. It was my last class for the summer. Final Exam. I stayed up too late on Sunday. Felt like the flu on Monday. My head and body was aching. I felt feverish. Managed to sleep a few more hours last night and go over as much of the material as possible this morning. Wouldn’t have missed today for anything.

Unofficially, I should have an A for the class. Just barely, but it counts. I missed the required amount to keep me above the A-line. I wish I had missed less. I even changed an answer from the right one to the wrong one! DUH. I hate that.

FYI for the future: Usually your first answer is the correct answer.

If I’ve learned anything in these last 3 years it’s to not second guess yourself. And yet, I did. We are not immune.

Anyway, I will keep it in mind for the next semester. 5 weeks, 5 days and counting.

Thanks to all who encouraged and supported me on the first run. Stay with me! I’m going to need you as the long, cold winter sets in!

Next up Warrior Dash! Should seem like a piece of cake–running and jumping–I don’t even have to win!

Now let’s go have some FUN!

Feeling Yucky and Feeling Happy

July 6, 2009 at 7:53 pm (Day to Day, Home Improvement, Pictures, School News, Windows) (, , , , , , , , , , , , )

I still feel a little gross. Throat hurts, but thankfully not as bad. I was at my sissy’s yesterday and there was a woman there with a worse throat than mine, really awful—hope she gets better quick!—so I promised I’d give up the complaining. I will only say that I am losing my voice. It’s not a complaint. I like my voice all gravelly and whiskey soaked.

The yucky is from being overwhelmed. I was just going over my school work to review the handouts and read some chapters when I realized that there is A LOT of reading and material to go over. And there are still 3 more weeks of handouts to learn before the Final.

Panic. Apprehension. Scaredy pants.

Starting in on the work is always the hardest. And I have a CPR class and test to take. I don’t know why it always makes me nervous to take that written test. It’s like the Driver’s Test. You know the material but you just have an awful feeling you are going to mess it up big time! Crazy.

Plus I bummed myself out a little bit with that previous post. Sad days.

I think I need pizza. Pepperoni Therapy with a Vodka Kiss on the cheek.

On the other hand, we had our first brand new non-metal, non-crank window installed today! Finally, the Modern World catches up to our house!

No more 50’s post-war row-house window for my kids! After 6, yes SIX, long years, they can finally OPEN a window in their room and get some fresh air. They won’t even know what to do with all this outside access!

I have to go and clean up the mess on the inside—happily!–and get it ready for a drywall patch and trim painting! I love it! It looks awesome!

Thank you John!!! You Rock!
