Day three hundred fifty

Vegan fudge for work. I also cut my finger AGAIN in the EXACT SAME PLACE. Remember this? This is the THIRD time in less than two months that I have cut this this exact spot. You'd think that the scar tissue would be thick enough by now that it wouldn't be so prone to getting cut open. When it happened, I seriously thought the universe was playing a trick on me. Thank goodness for these bandages. Best things ever.

Day three hundred forty seven

Finally replaced the blower motor. We first noticed a problem when it got REALLY cold mid-November. Only $38 plus $6 shipping and 30 minutes of time and we're good to go! I'm thankful my dad showed me how to replace it when we were there for Thanksgiving, saved us a lot of money!

Day three hundred forty five

This is my "grinder" at work. I'm in the process of requesting a REAL grinder (see here) but this is what the old CPed had about 20 years ago.

Day three hundred forty two

Made it home mid-afternoon after getting up at 2:30am (Mountain Time) to catch my plane. It's not even 7pm and I am struggling in a huge way to stay awake. I even took a nap on the plane AND when I got home. So happy to be back though. Next time I travel a long distance by plane, I hope it's for fun!

Day three hundred forty one

The test is FINALLY over. Finally finally finally. Honestly, I would not be surprised if I fail. But on the other hand, I wouldn't be surprised if I pass. The test is just that way. I can only really remember the stuff I messed up so I don't know. That 5-hour period is so stressful. And then you get done and at first I was just completely out of it. Then I got almost silly. Then I thought I might be hungry. My internal clock is SO messed up right now. I ate at 6am this morning (eastern time, which is 4am mountain time) in preparation to leave at 6:30 for the test, and I got back from the test around 2 or 2:30, having only eaten some trail mix, and I wasn't real hungry, then got hungry around 4pm. I don't know what time zone I'm on, but I think Tuesday at work will be rough. Tomorrow I fly back. I'm also really super tired and it's only around 7:15 eastern time. Umm what? So anyway, amongst all my crazy ramblings ^^, here's a photo I took lying upside down on the bed. And in crazy effects. Sorry, Lisa crazy = photo crazy. I tried to knit but I was too spastic. I think they need to provide counseling with this exam. It makes you crazy. Not that I would know. It's supposedly 78degF in my room but I'm cold. I had the AC on earlier but I was chilly so I turned it off, and it just kept getting warmer and warmer and I'm still cold. Maybe I'll do some jumping jacks and pushups. That'll warm me up. Or maybe a shower, that sounds easier.

Day three hundred forty

Reviewed for my exam part of the day, and relaxed some. My coresident from Seattle, Dan, is here as well so we studied together a bit. Then Dan (and his wife Alyssa) invited me out to dinner with Alyssa's aunt and uncle. I got a crab cake BLT (yummmm!) and saw tons and tons of lit-up palm trees in downtown St. Petersburg. 80 degrees today, it sure doesn't feel like Christmas! There was also a pretty intense protest (anti-police) so it was crazy.

Starting to get nervous for the test. And I got news that my grandfather is not doing well and has hours to days left. Trying not to process that until tomorrow afternoon.

Day three hundred thirty nine

Flew into Tampa, Florida today for my exam on Sunday. Here's the approach. My connection from Boise was in Phoenix so I flew over the Gulf. Lots and lots of water.

Had to wait for these duckies to get out of the parking lot before I could park the car when I came home from work today :)

Day three hundred thirty six

Sooooo I should be studying. My test is in only 5 days. Instead, I took a photo of my pajama pants and then proceeded to mess around with the editing program built into my phone. I haven't played with it much but it was fun. I guess. Distracting. Ugh.
