Monday morning

I didn’t even plan to be up right now, and yet here I am, sitting in an empty classroom, waiting for another 20 minutes before class starts.

I wanted to stay in bed and sleep because I was feeling run down and sicky last night (for those who don’t know, “sicky” is that feeling before you get sick but you know that if you don’t take it easy and get some sleep you will get sick) and the class today is simply review. I was prepared to lie in bed and wave bye bye to T heading off to work and then stretch out and hog the whole bed for another couple hours.

T had other ideas. He guilt-tripped me into getting out of bed by telling me that if I was going to pretend to be sick to justify being lazy, that was just fine by him but he also reminded me of how much I am paying for tuition… And then Lisa chimed in (and what the fuck is she even doing up at that time??) and said that if I went today, maybe I would spend less of my own time studying later for my final. Yeah yeah yeah good advice. Shut up. I’m at school now, okay? *grumpy* (Update: half the class has not showed up. What am I doing here again?)

I did stop by and see my best friend, B, at work. We are going to hang out today for the first time in about a month – dunno how that happens but life just gets busy. It’ll be worse in September when she starts the nursing program at Langara but we plan to be study-buddies so we can see each other at least a little bit.

I got a chance to show off the new car to her and to Rich, my buddy from my old stomping grounds. He was very impressed with me – new car, quit smoking, yadda yadda. Even after all this time it still means a lot to me when he is impressed. Probaby because it takes so damn much to get him to say it!

I think tonight I am going to curl up in bed really early with “The Fiery Cross” (which I have read three times before but I’m rereading the series because I *love* them) and a cup of tea and take it easy. Tomorrow I don’t have school and I will use that time to clean the house, do laundry, study a bit, and basically do all the things that I haven’t done the last few days because I spent the weekend at T’s house. As much as I love spending time there, I must confess that I am looking forward to sleeping in my bed and hogging the whole queen sized thing.

      I have read the first four so many times that the covers started to come off and they are all taped together. Found the fifth in hardcover at the used bookstore – yay! Just need the sixth and I’m a happy camper.
