So, after reviewing my list, it appears we're making progress. That makes me happy. We've been working our butts off. However, it seems as soon as I cross one thing off, another pops up. I'll be happy to have the office *completely* functional. That will make the rest of the things on the list seem almost leisurely.
Things have been okay. It's been hard to sleep. I've discovered that the boxspring to my bed is broken, therefore creating a dip in the mattress and causing terrible sleep. We're going to put the mattress on the floor for the time being. I did not sleep AT ALL last night.
School is okay. I'm sad cause I got an 81% on my assignment last week. I'm striving for 100%s every week. Still, a B.....but it was due to the fact that I did all my responses (rebuttals) in one day than over a few. That's the only reason why! So, I need to keep discussions going to get a 100%...I'm working on my research paper for the next month. The month after that will basically be a team project which I am SO not looking forward to. I don't really work well with others since I have such high standards...Anyway.....
I can't wait til spring/summer. i'm sick of two feet of snow in my yard at all times. I'm sick of the high gas bill. I'm sad for my dog since she can't run around. I told Aaron tonight the official drink of the summer will be MaiTais. Just you wait. It's going to rule so hard. There's a kiddy pool in our garage that we're going to bring down for Bella and possibly Marley (he loves water). I can't wait to come home from work and chill out outside and grill stuff!!! I have officially stopped taking weather for granted..........Secret: I wear long underwear every day. I have to walk about a quarter mile from my car to our building each way everyday. it gets super cold and windy. Plus, i'm on the 11th floor, so it gets super cold!
I've been super conflicted about my gym membership. I joined Curves in November. Some days when I go, it just seems like a "Cathy" comic strip. "MEN!!!!!!!" "CHILDREN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
That's about it for now. I'll update soon....hopefully with pictures!
