I passed!

I got the news that I passed my capstone exam today.  Very happy and excited about that.  That means I will definitely be able to graduate in May.  So now I need to make plans for hotel and travel and such. 

I was at the UIL district tournament today.  We had some good successes but also quite a few disappointments.  For the first time in many, many years, the speech team did not win the district trophy – they actually placed 4th.  But a nice surprise is that we had a student that placed first in feature writing.  Our history team which is the reigning state champion took 1st through 4th place.  So I’ll be taking a group of about 8 students and 4 sponsors to district. 

Matthew went to the emergency room today to have tests done to see what is causing the pain since it hasn’t gone away.  He didn’t get any definitive results other than they can’t blame it kidney stones or constipation.  They think he is just having muscle spasms caused from moving and lifting stuff.  They gave him a shot of pain medicine so I had to go pick him up – officially.  I picked him up in front of the ER, then drove him to his car and he drove home which was only about 3 minutes from the hospital.  I then went and got his prescriptions for him and some ice packs.  The medicine and ice was helping today but he has not recovered yet.  I’m going to go over tomorrow to bring him food and we will just hang out and watch a movie or something. 

My new washer and dryer will be delivered tomorrow between 1:45 and 3:45 p.m.  That means I can sleep in tomorrow before I have to clear things out of the garage.  I did get the corner painted and it looks really nice.  Now I really want to get the rest of it painted. I think I’m going to go read a little bit and then call it a night.
