Odds 'n Ends

My head hurts.  I just took an exam for one of my classes that lasted three hours.  Yikes!  It's my own fault; I didn't study hard enough.  I could have taken four hours if I had needed it!

Classes are...going?  Good news is that I was able to drop two of them so now I am only taking four classes.  Lucky me, right?  Since I'm so late getting registered for everything, I've spent the last week just doing the assignments for this class that had the exam today (educational psychology) and am consequently behind in all my other classes.  I'll catch up, I think?  Luckily the other three classes are less date-oriented so I can do them at more of my own pace.  As long as I finish them by the middle of June I think I'll be okay.

So who is still excited about all the snow we're getting?!?!?!  I love snow.  I wish I could go out and play in the snow like kids do but I don't have snow pants.  Otherwise I would totally be there!  It helps that I'm not driving and don't have to go anywhere, I'm sure!  I can't believe how much snow we're getting this year.  On Tuesday and Wednesday we're supposed to get 7 to 12 inches.  Can't wait!

I haven't returned to any of my volunteer projects yet.  I tried to meet up with my literacy learner but she's even more flaky than I am, so that hasn't happened yet.  The classroom that I was volunteering in I think I'll return to a week from Monday.  It will depend on how my weakness is.  I'm still pretty weak, having trouble getting out of chairs and walking upstairs, and that isn't really conducive to working with kids.  Hopefully I'll feel up to it, and hopefully my learner will be ready to start up again1  Although to tell you the truth, I don't know how I'm going to have time for these two things plus school work plus doctor's appointments.  Fingers crossed that I can get time management under control! 

Sorry for another boring post.  I'm still getting back to normal from the brain thing and radiation.

Oh yeah, that little blip! You are too much.

All my best.

Do students taking classes at home get snow days? I think you deserve one like the rest of the US who doesn't have school tomorrow.

I admire you. I did not post anything yet since my radiation finished!! It just does not click in my head. And you take classes!!
I also love the snow, Reed got a snow day from work!!

Shannon - thanks!

GYSC - not such a big deal to get those, right? ;)

Emily - Ha! I wish I could take a snow day. I'm so behind in all of my work that I really can't take any time off...

Alex - thank you! I'm glad Reed got the day off of work. I just read a lovely piece on your blog, btw.

Hmmmmmmmm, no request for Friday Night? I had the lead off spot set for you!

All my best.

Still no Friday night request....

I have to pay a crew of roofers $1000 to get all the snow off my roof on Monday. Snow: maybe pretty, but a pain in the aXX.

Oh man! I'll try to think of one for next week. I can't believe you have to get the snow cleaned off your roof. That means you've really had a lot!
