|I think it's working out really well that my serious endeavor to get in shape coincides with my last quarter of school. What? Another 10 minutes of this funky treadclimber machine may eat into my reading time for International Law? Huh. Sounds good!
It also works out with the spring-time at the girls' school and with their extra-curriculars and such.
Senioritis is FUN!
Today I get to leave school early so that I can take J out to buy props for a speech she has to give on Thursday. There was a day, probably both 1 and 2 years ago, where this would stress me out to no end, and I would consider leaving money for the babysitter to take her in the afternoon. Today there is no stress involved!! None!
I was a little nervous walking into my early morning class this a.m., because I went to bed at 10:30 last night - instead of reading 30 pages of anti-terrorism statutes. I thought I'd be okay, since last class it was my job to "play the government" in the debates during class. I thought the professor would let me squeak by as a quiet little mouse today. No such luck. But we're behind, so the stuff he was asking about was the stuff I uber-prepared for last time, thinking I'd be called on to argue the government's position. Today, I got to be the ACLU instead of the government, and I enjoyed the discussion much more from that vantage point.
Final piece of cheeriness for the day (well, other than the fact that the sky is blue and it's in the 60s outside, and I'm next to an open window at the library) --- the scale at the gym finally got a clue that I'm really working out a LOT and deserve to see results. Stingy thing that it is - it's finally showing some movement.
