Still Alive

In the past few weeks, I have survived a CT scan (to check on the liver abnormalities found on the US for the gallbladder attack), been sick with allergies, thrown out my back, and given a presentation for class (I HATE giving presentations in front of a class).

On the other hand, I also got an A on that presentation, got an A on one test, and a B on several others. So, aside from the back pain and the limitations it's imposing (no riding the ambulance recently, no serious fencing), life hasn't been too bad.

Tonight is a drill night at the station, and then dinner with friends at Hard Times, where food is cheap and plentiful, and I will have leftovers for lunch tomorrow.

Tomorrow. Which reminds me, there are some phone calls to be made tomorrow, since the school saw fit to reimburse me for a not-insignificant amount of money that I didn't actually spend. At least, I don't think so. I knew that whole loan snafu would come back to haunt me.

Making do

School is kicking my butt. Not in the 'study, study, study' way, though there certainly is a lot of that, (in fact, I have a test tomorrow), but more in the 'up early every day' way. Compounding the issue is the fact that C is in New Jersey for the next 6 months, which means I am chief cook and bottle washer for the dogs and the house. C does come home on weekends, but that's generally not enough time to get everything done. Basically, I'm still working out my schedule, trying to get to bed early at night (clearly a FAIL for tonight), and it's kicking my butt more than I expected.

Time to study. Maybe I'll have more to post about when we start clinicals....
