It has been a busy hectic weekend. Our friend came over and we celebrated Christmas with the girls in Georgia via video chat. It was fun if a bit awkward. I need to figure out how to put the computer on the tv so we can all see. It was amazing to be able to share our holiday gift giving with each other even though they are nearly a thousand miles away.
I spent my weekend working on different things. Mostly it was busy work. I did, however, get some submissions done. I also got my stuff organized for my final exam. I’m still waiting to see if I get feedback on the journal for the one class. I’m pretty sure I’ll be getting an A in that class. I also think I’ll be getting max a B in the other class.
I have once again been proven wrong about people. I made a deal with the professor that he would give points back to the class if I proved my point in my formal project. I worked my ass off and did a great job on it. I proved my argument and still he isn’t giving any points back. I am disgusted with him. I am disappointed in people. I trusted that he would have integrity and stand by what he said. Instead, he didn’t. If I think about it too much – I get exceedingly angry. The cynic inside of me is saying of course this is just how people are.
The girls gave me a gift certificate for Amazon. I bought As Time Goes By – it is my favorite BBC comedy. It is HILARIOUS. I don’t care how many times I’ve seen the episodes they always make me laugh. It was on sale for about half off. So I snapped it up and am excited that I was able to get it. There is one movie to go with it and I can’t wait to be able to afford that too. I’ll keep my eye on it.
It was a good exchange of gifts with everyone. Our friend was very surprised by the AMAZING quilt Stephanie made her. It was beautiful and detailed. It was definitely gorgeous and everyone wanted it. Virginia also made her matching pillow cases which were incredibly beautiful too. We tried to steal both from our friend but she wasn’t letting them out of her sight.
I’m looking forward to my vacation and hope I’ll be able to get a book prepped for publishing on the kindle. The book is done. I am very happy with the result. Initial response from a couple of readers seems to indicate that it should go over well. I just need to walk through the steps of getting it prepped and published on the kindle. As usual I have a long list of things to do during my vacation but this is my top priority. I hope the next four days goes by quickly
