January 6--Pretty girl on a tilt-a-whirl

Happy birthday to the twins--Dawn and Shawn, born one month to the day after me, in the same hospital, and delivered by the same doctor. We met in first grade and were friends until they moved away. I could always tell them apart.

I got up early today after a good night's sleep, had a cup of coffee, and went in to my office to tackle this accreditation stuff. I worked on it for close to 8 hours, and got most of it done. I will do the same tomorrow, and finish that sucker up.

lonely sunday

It was quiet there--I was the only one around for miles and miles. It started raining pretty hard after I got there, and rained pretty much the entire day. By the time I left, it was also really windy, and it blew my umbrella apart.

Now I am home, having a nice cup of tea and listening to the storm raging outside.

I feel like I am all caught up on my sleep, and pretty much back to normal after my cold. I slept a solid 8 hours last night, and my sleep app tells me it was a good sleep. It feels good to be well rested. I think I will try to go to bed fairly early during the semester, and see how I feel.

I am on page 506 of the second book of the Mars trilogy I am reading. I wasn't sure I would even read the second volume after slogging through 600 or so pages of the first, but I actually like the second one better, and am enjoying it. There is one more in the series, and then I have two new books to dive into, both non-fiction.

As I was writing the last paragraph, the power went out in our neighborhood, but stayed out for only a few minutes. I have this computer plugged into a surge protector/battery backup, so it didn't go out, and I didn't lose my entry. yay.
