I just realized that after working on a project for school, studying for a final exam, cooking for a potluck, then a long weekend of curling in a tourney with a three game guarantee, where we won enough to make it to the third day, then a hasty trip to Hastings, NE via Lincoln, where I stayed to break up the long drive, a lot of work, and a long drive home, just to turn around and do Vegas for five days, then rush around to catch up on work, go to Lisa's birthday dinner (at home with steak, stuffed mushrooms, and yummy ice cream cake), and chores. . . this is my first moment to actually just sit in my recliner and reflect.
I got a 96 in that class. I got 100 on the final. I guess I over studied. It felt good to slam dunk it, though. I think if I can take more interesting classes like it, my Masters degree will be a breeze. I'm already using what I learned in that class in my work.
I'm still about a day behind at work, but I had to knock off early to go buy Lisa a gift. I had a $50 Best Buy gift card, which I was given at work for my effort on a successful project. I figured I could put that with some cash and get something really nice for Lisa. And I did. I hate their broken ass TV. It's blurry and the green gun shoots too far to the right, so everything light in color has a green halo on one side, and sometimes you have to beat on the side of the TV to get the picture to sync up. They had an open box deal on a Hi-Def plasma TV, so I splurged a bit, since I watch more TV at their house than I do at mine. A gift for the whole family, including myself. Hey, I saved a lot of money by using my comps in Vegas, winning at poker to pay for miscellaneous stuff, and my phat tax refund was about to burn a hole in my bank account. . . and I love Lisa to death. Happy Birthday, girl.
