Maybe we are done with the cold

I wonder if it’s supposed to be 80 degrees again today.  I am sure we made it there yesterday.   80 degrees right now feels HOT.  Yes, we are running the air conditioner for part of the day.  LOL, I just looked at he weather prediction, 68 and occasional thunderstorms.   So much for my 80 degree dream.   At least it’s not 40something anymore or worse below 32 at night.  But it’s all good, I’m not going anywhere, so let it be cool and thunderstorms, I will be playing Skyrim for most of the day.


We got notice yesterday that they are going to repave our street starting today.  Lord knows we need it, it’s like one giant pothole with street between it.  So that’s another reason not to go anywhere.  I’m down with that.


Bed at 10:30pm up at 6am.  I didn’t nap yesterday.  By 10:30 I was a vegetable.  Might not nap today and see if I can get used to this.  I got more done yesterday than I have in a long time.  So, not going to say nap today, although it sounds like it might be a good day to nap, I will say I am going to take it easy.  Heh, that is every day.


Skyrim for me is a lot like D&D, I like trying out new characters.  My Khajitt made it to level 30.  1st orc made it to level 20.  2nd orc made it to level 12 (when I accidently killed Lydia and couldn’t decide on a replacement follower).  And now my Nord is gonna be retired at level 3, just not feeling him.  Maybe a Wood Elf Archer is next.  I am getting better with a bow at short distances, still suck with it at angles though.  Or maybe an Argonian (Lizard person), they get bonuses to lockpicking and pick pockets.  I got 15 minutes to decide which I a going to play today.  Might try Orc 3, I was enjoying 2nd Orc when I made a stupid mistake.


Teresa made a full Easter meal yesterday.  She cooked for 5 hours, maybe closer to 6.  We had ham, au gratins, homemade potato rolls, broccoli, deviled eggs, and a home made chocolate cake.  Dinner was delicious.  The rolls were to die for.  They tasted amazing.  My wife is such a great cook.  I think I will keep her around.

We did have some unwelcomed guests though after the meal before clean up.  ANTS.  Lots of little tiny ants all over the place.  They were mowing on the slice of ham but not to big piece of ham, so we were good there.  And the sad part is the ant trap was 2 feet away and the ants just ignored it.

So today’s lunch will be leftovers from last night.  Yep, we got lots of leftovers.  Teresa made enough to feel 7 or 8 people and there was only 3 of us eating.  I’m happy though, gonna go have deviled eggs for breakfast when I finish this blog entry.   Yeah, it’s a rough life, but someone has to live it and it might as well be me.


Reminder to self:  Call DMACC today and find out about the ALEKS test.  Someone has to know how to reset that beast, so I can finally take it again.  It’s not like I want to take it again, but they say I have to.  I guess I will start with the Registration people and go from there.  Registration is being held up by the test, so it make sense to me to start with them.  I’m sure they will have me call someone else (well transfer me), who will send me somewhere else, but eventually it will get fixed.  I hope.

School starts in 30 days.  Sometime I have to get my books, but they haven’t announced 2 of them yet.  Maybe they won’t have books, that’d be nice.  Then just 246.50 for the math class and be done with books.  I can handle that.  But college classes always have books or material made by the professor that still costs some amount.  So my dream of getting away cheap is shot, they’ll have books I am sure of it.

Anxiety is almost palpable when I get thinking about school.  It’s ridiculous that I feel so messed up about it.  Even writing what I have written here made me get anxious.  30 days, books, tests, all of it just piling on.  I want to do this, I really do.  And I reaffirm my determination to do this.   And dammit, I am not a slave to my anxiety issues.
