Sorry I didn’t post yesterday after I got home, but I was beat. The two hour drive up wasn’t bad at all, plus I listened to Sonic Theater all the way too. Sonic Theater is one of the XM channels that plays audio books, short stories, old radio shows, etc. I’ve not really listened to it much, so I didn’t realize the layout of the schedule until about the middle of the second hour. Each day at the same time you can hear an additional chapter of a book, movie, play, or radio series. So.. I heard chapter 6 of Bramstrokers Dracula, a couple episodes of Alien Planet, and a couple short stories that were rather funny. It’s kind of like series ‘tv’ for people on the road all the time.

Well mom’s visit to the doctor lasted only a hour this time..record time compared to the last visit. The doctor said the same thing (that I’d been thinking) that she’d stretched too far reaching into the cabinet, and the muscle pulled on the cracked rib. We also got the results of the bone density study, and now know why she broke her rib so easily. It’s called Osteopenia. So now she’s on some new medicine to help her bones called Fosamax that she takes just once a week. The doctor gave her 4 samples, which is a good thing, considering I’ve did a little searching and those little babies are $20 each here in the states. Depending on what her insurance covers, I just might look into what it takes to purchase from Canada. Heck..if the good old city of Montgomery Alabama employees can do it, then we should be able to also.
Did everyone take their calcium today? Drink your milk? Good girl!

I made it back home around 3:30 or so yesterday. About half way home I was getting tired, so I stopped of to get a Diet Dr. Pepper or something and decided to try one of those kicked up caffiene, yadda yadda yadda, not a Red Bull drink. This one was called a Stinger. Tasted pretty good, not sour and funky like some of those energy drinks.

Well I guess I should be getting ready for class. Only two classes for today, since my 7:30 class for tonight was cancelled.

Why do birds sing in the middle of the night??

Just a quick note to say HEY and to let you know I’m still around. I’m off to mom’s here shortly but I’ll be back later today. (She re-injured her rib again reaching for something up in a cabinet -( ) Hopefully things will move a little faster this time, and we’ll be out of there in less than 6 hours. I’m taking my Data Comm book just in case.

Classes are going well..we didn’t get back our exam from last Wednesday in Operations Mgmt, but we might get it back by next Monday. Our professor has been a little preoccupied since her husband deployed yesterday for a deployment that they tell him is expected to last a little over a year, so she hasn’t really thought about getting our exams graded. I’m sure we’ll get them before classes are over in 3 1/2 weeks.

Did you wake up at 1am to birds singing? We did.. no news of a earthquake, so there must have been something else out spooking the birds last night.

Ok.. off to get busy and on the road.

Weekend update..short and sweet.

Did you have a good weekend? It was beautiful here! Lots of sunshine, nice cool nights, and no rain! Yeah! We watched a few movies, and slept in when we could. Friday we were up late watching The Crow. We’d seen it before a few times, but I always like watching it again. Saturday we slept in for a bit, but still up in time to enjoy the day. Heck..I even made breakfast! Later I went grocery shopping and watched some television.
While doing a little cleaning I decided to put a few things up on Ebay for bids. I used to sell quite a lot over there, but slacked off for a while.
Feel free to take a peek a my ebay listings.

Today we started off the day with another movie, The Core. I think we’d seen bits and pieces of it, but never the whole movie. Them it was off to start cleaning on the storage building.

I think the spring cleaning bug has hit because I’ve been doing a little cleaning around here. Mostly just out in the storage building, but cleaning none the less. I was able to straighten out the building so that we can actually move around in there, plus I was able to toss out a few things too. Now if we need to get to the mower or any of the tools its not like climbing through a jungle of dangerous objects!

After that little adventure it was time to do a little more work in the yard. Since the wind wasn’t bad today I was able to finally burn all those limbs and logs from the trees we cut down a few weeks back. Only three more trees to go too! Oh we have more trees than just three. These trees we’re getting rid of are just pests and after they are gone the grass will grow much better out there too.

Ok..time to get a little sleep (I’m sure it won’t be a problem tonight.. I’m beat!).

Is it really Friday?

I keep thinking its Sunday.. weird. Maybe its because J took off from work the past two days. Yeah.. that’s probably the reason.
Wow..it was pretty today. Lots of sunshine and warm! I even slept in for a little while..until I remembered that Seniors could register for Fall semester beginning at 7am this morning. I finally woke up around 9am..did I wake up? or was someone tickling my feet?? Believe it or not, even on school days when my classes aren’t until 11am, I still stay up after J heads to work. I’m not sure why I slept in this morning…maybe it was because it was so cool in the house and the dogs hadn’t barked to go out yet (or if they did I didn’t hear them!). I did get registered for Fall classes.. C++ II, Strategic Management, and Wellness (yes..I’m taking this for my non-business elective. Its like a PE class. I would have taken Karate but its not offered right now ;-) ). I need just two more classes to graduate, but there are issues with one of the required classes being the same time as my Strategic class, so I wasn’t able to get it for Fall like I’d hoped, and so now that will leave me to taking Java and Network Security in the Spring. At least I’ll have enough free time to job hunt too! All that over with….

More working in the yard doing a little weed-wacking. Yesterday I mowed about 3/4 of the yard, so maybe tomorrow I’ll do the last little bit. Around lunch time we had a visitor. He was so quiet and walking pretty quickly across the yard. He must have been enjoying the newly mowed grass, and was heading to the lake down behind our house. He was making pretty good time, but J still carried him over to the lake to make sure the dogs didn’t find a new play toy. Once at the lake he took off into the water. We could see 100’s of tadpoles, so I’m sure Mr. Turtle will be happy.

After seeing that Mr. Turtle found his way home, we headed down to Little Sam’s Cafe for lunch.. mmmm.. if you click the link you even see the table we sat at! hehehe! I was hoping that they would have some chicken and dumplin’s but they didn’t this time, but the meatloaf was good too. We passed on dessert..we were stuffed!

Back home..it’s nap time! Don’t you just love taking a nap on a week day? It’s just so much more fun than when you do it on the weekend.
It’s been quite the lazy day… CSI watching… napping… goofing off…

I just had to share this with you. I thought it was quite funny..but then again I’m a bit weird sometimes too.
For the man who has everything..or so he thought.
