End of another long day

I'm still making progress, it's still seems like I have a million things to do. I did bring some of it home today so I'll try to do a little work here. I didn't sleep well last night. I went to bed by 9:45 and slept pretty well until 1:30. Then I woke up and couldn't really get back to sleep. I kept thinking about tournament stuff. I think maybe I dozed off around 3:30 but had to get up by 6:30. Tonight I think I'll take a benadryl to ensure a better night's sleep. I hope to get to school early and get a lot done. Today I did get all my judges names entered into the tournament software program. We had more schools enter today and now I'm up to 15 CX debate rooms. It's just crazy! But it's also a lot of money which will be nice.

I finally got my GRE scores in the mail. I did score a 400 on the verbal (which is low), 560 on quantitative (which is average) and a 5.0 on the analytical writing (which is above average). I feel o.k. about it but would like my verbal to have been higher. Oh well... now I just have to wait to hear from the Library school and see if they'll accept me. Thankfully I've been so preoccupied with tournament stuff that I haven't had time to worry about it.

There's going to be a basic automotive class offered at the high school on Thursday evenings this semester that I would like to attend. Unfortunately, I don't think I'll be able to. Tomorrow is the first class and I'll probably be working on tournament stuff. Next week I'll be gone to a debate tournament. I think I would miss too many classes to really get something out of it. But I think it would be good to learn about basic automotive maintenance. I do know probably more than the average woman thanks to my dad and brother and being a single parent but there's a lot more that I could learn.

I may have two teams that qualify for CX state because they will be the only entries from our district. I'll know for sure tomorrow. That will mean a trip to Austin at the beginning of spring break. Then as soon as I get back, Josh and I will head to Nacogdoches to visit the University there. So much for a relaxing spring break.

I went to SFA in Nacadoches! It was a wonderful school, not too expensive. The city is there because of the university and it is a nice college town- BEAUTIFUL tall pines and the campus is so nice! Now this was in the late 80's, so I hope it is still that way.

I'm not sure you know what the meaning of relaxing is girl.

I too know much more than most because my dad was a mechanic and I took a basic auto class in high school.

Watching the weather out your way. Should get interesting for Dallas fomorrow. I'm glad you got the GRE scores as well. I am so excited for you and graduate school!
