Procrastination Reigns

I really need to be cleaning my house right now.  But I’m not.  I’m on the computer and watching t.v. and avoiding responsibility.  I suppose I’ll get to a little cleaning at some point, but I’m not in a rush.  My week at school continued to be full of dealing with misbehaving kids.  I wrote another referral on Thursday and kept a log for another student that was constantly out of class all day.  On Friday, I literally chased down another student that refused to go to class.  I finally got her to a principal that said she would deal with her.  Instead of processing books on Friday, I had to go all over the school and do a count of computers for a report that the principal has to submit. 

On Thursday at Scrabble practice I had a really good game against Matt.  I beat him with a score of 484 points.  I also had the high turn of the night with a 112 point play with a double-double bingo.  (I used all 7 tiles and built a word that covered two double word spots.)  Matt was a little discouraged, but I didn’t rub it in.  I think deep down he was impressed with how I played.  Of course I still lost three other games that night, but sometimes I do draw and play well. 

Last night Matt and I went to Red Lobster for dinner.  He has been wanting some lobster and I enjoyed the seaside shrimp trio.  I was pretty good in that I only ate half my meal and saved the rest for lunch today.  I’m really trying to cut back on my eating – especially when I eat out. 

Matt and I are going to go back to Canyon for Easter.  I haven’t been back there since I moved here in August.  I can’t wait to see some of my friends and eat at Taco Villa!  Well, I guess I’ve procrastinated long enough.  I need to take a shower and get ready to head uptown to see Matt.  We’re going to church and then will get his friend’s t.v. set up and then go to dinner.

Dad asked me last night who was my favorite online friend and I said it was you hands down. You and I have really been through a lot and we still seem to be on top. I told him all you've done lately almost reinventing yourself in the process. I wish I had your courage. Anytime you need some help I am already there. Matt, too, is one hell of a lucky guy. I hope he appreciates you. I am glad you have have him. Life a lot more fun going through everything with a friend with benefits.
