So I have the rough draft of a 15 page paper due on Thursday. Yeah I'm about 2 1/2 pages into it. But when I actually focus on it it goes pretty fast (I love double spacing, and footnotes). My goal is 6 or 7 pages done tonight. We'll see what happens. To be honest I'm not feeling too good, so I should probably get more than that done in case I'm coming down with whatever cold it appears half this dorm has. You'd think the honors kids would know how not to share their germs...
So this weekend was interesting. Friday afternoon dad called me and told me dinner was PLANNED for a certain time. Now dad may plan what we're eating ahead of time, but he usually doesn't plan a time for eating. And even planning the food ahead is at times a stretch for him. So obviously something was up. Yup, when we got to his house he told us company was coming over. Company turned out to be the person who he swears isn't his girlfriend but we all know she is. Even Amy knows. Jessica was invited to Easter dinner at Amy's with dad. Yeah, nuff said. Did I mention Jessica is at least 20 years younger than dad? Yeah she is. She's also the grand niece of one of the other selectmen in town and daughter of the most prominent developer in town. Way to make life interesting dad... Oh, dinner went fine; I've met Jessica before. She's nice and funny and stuff but still, awkward.
Saturday was girls' day. Mom and Laura and I went to Kohls and Target, and since mom hadn't found anything for either of us for Easter she bought us everything we had picked out while she was off shopping in another area (there were some major sales at Kohls...). I got new capris, another pair of flip flops, and 2 photo albums. Then we went to La Caretta for dinner, then to Stars on Ice (Christmas gift). Stars on Ice was incredible. Absolutely incredible.
Yesterday we had Easter dinner at our house. It was a good time. Paul, Cindy and Allison came over. It was the first time I'd seen Cindy since last Father's day, and the first time I saw Paul and Allison since around New Years. Of course it meant I had to endure all of Uncle Paul's old frat stories and such, but I survived. The food was good too. Pigged out since I knew my diet would start as soon as I returned to the school food, which in true form, is getting worse as the semester progresses. 3 more weeks and I'll have an entire summer of home cooking ahead of me!!! I can't believe I'm that close to the end of the year. Well actually with this mountain of work I've got I guess I can believe it, but I'm amazed how fast this year has gone. I never believed people when they said it would, but it really has. Next year looks like it'll be a good year, and unless I have to sign up for something totally different, I won't have to take any writing intensives next semester for the first time in my college career!!!!! WOOOOT!!!!!! And I really can't wait for hockey season to start again. You guys have no idea...
