Yeah. Considering I have to get up at 4:15, I should definitely be sleeping. BUT...I'm just thrown off this week. B is outta town this week for work, so I'm all outta whack. PLUS, I started summer school on Monday and so that has thrown me off a little bit too! I mean...i cherish my "at home" time when I can do just...whatev: lay on the couch, clean, play with the pup, go on a run, read, do laundry... and being gone from 4:30a to 4:30p everyday doesn't allow enough time to do most of those things. ESPECIALLY since I'm trying (unsuccessfully...obviously) to shift my bedtime to around the 9:00 mark.
In my defense, there IS a super great basketball game on right now and so there's no way I could go to sleep even if I WANTED to. (CRAP. The Lakers are winning again. BOO.)
Anyhow, as I mentioned, I started summer school this week. I'm taking my final 2 pre-reqs for my nursing school applic. Microbiology and Anatomy/Physiology II. In Micro, we use the microscope ALL the time...which I totally enjoy...except for the part afterwards. Microscopes cause temporary blindness for me. Sound strange? Okay...I'll give you the back story. So...at the adorable little ago of 5, my optometrist ruined me by forcing me to wear what HE referred to as glasses. If you ask me (or anyone else who knew me back then) GOGGLES would be a much more accurate description of the 1-inch thick, massive pink frames that accessorized my face every day. So... ever since then I have needed glasses. For the last few years though, I quit. And my vision has been sufficient until recently. And this microscope thing is killing me now. As soon as I look in a microscope and then look away, my eyes won't focus for at LEAST a good hour. It gives me a head ache. Oh...and it DRIVES ME FREAKING CRAZY. So...tomorrow I am making an appointment with an optometrist. Yippeeeee. Did I mention that I also can't STAND getting my eyes dialated? As you can see, I am less than thrilled.
Each of my summer classes is a month long and consists of 4 1/2 hours of class...daily. I just keep reminding myself that it's WORTH IT because I'm getting an entire semester's worth of a class out of the way in a month. But still...as hour 2 creeps along, I start fading bad. The only thing that keeps me going is eating...so I'm pretty sure I'm gonna gain 25 pounds this summer. If I'm a chunker next time you see me, that's why ;-)
As soon as my MOM EMAILS ME, I'll post some pics from the last couple of weekends....Webby's (oh, excuse me, Linny's) wedding, Reidster's graduation, cousin visit in The Shoog. I suck and I lost our camera battery about 3 months ago. That's why I NEVER post pics. ANNNND I suffer from severe denial when I lose things. I'm still convinced that the battery is NOT lost. It's simply misplaces and I will CERTAINLY stumble upon it eventually...
