This weekend Amelia flew to Utah to support her sister, who ran in a marathon in Logan. I'm glad she got to go, but man things were boring here. Finances are a little tight right now (turns out we waste a lot of money going out to eat and then still have expensive grocery and utility bills--that's not right!) so I couldn't do a few of the things I wanted (like buy a doghouse and some other outdoor equipment). Instead I spent like 3 days straight doing the following activities: grading papers, trimming the lawn and trees, cleaning the house, and playing with the dog. Not a bad way to spend a few days, but here it is Sunday and I realized I'm still not super prepared for tomorrow's classes.
Seriously, teaching one more class is definitely shifting my ability to get things done in advance. Thank goodness I don't have to start from scratch!
On the down side, weekend tv sucks. Reruns of House and . . . that's about it.
On the plus side, I have discovered some amazing things about my iPod. (By the way, I like those new iPod touches they have, but I wouldn't trade for my 80 gig guy. I still love it.) Turns out there are some good free programs for converting video files to mp4 format, so now I can add movies and tv shows from my hard drive right onto this thing with incredible quality. It's pretty awesome.
All right, the dog is lonely. Time to go wrestle.
