An Outing

I woke up feeling out of sorts this morning. I didn't know what I wanted to do and then it occurred to me that I was tired of being home. I wanted to get out of the house and have a change of scenery.

So, I suggested and we decided to go to Spirit Mountain Casino and do the lunch buffet. Dad took Eddie to the children's arcade and I gambled. I lost $12. Eddie won 2200 tickets and came home with a giant slinky and giant sunglasses, among other things.

All in all, we were gone about 4 hours. It was nice to see the countryside. But I'm tired now. I don't feel much like doing anything so I'm back to watching TV.

One of our grad students stopped by with her partner - they brought us two quiches, a veggie one and a bacon one. We had the veggie one for dinner - it was good! Thanks, Courtney and Dale!

I was invited to go to my teammates' birthday celebration after their softball game today, but I'm too tired.

Yesterday, I was somewhat productive. I found a house at the coast, finally, for a handful of nights in July. I also worked on my mosaic design and rested. I think I got about three hours sleep last night.

Tomorrow? I need to get a digital file from my Humanities office so that I can finish my edits to a chapter I wrote last year. I want to get those edits done tomorrow, so I can get started on my cancer blogger analysis and write-up. I also need to pay a bill. But I might also get some more mosaic supplies and work on the mosaic.

I only have to have three steroid pills today. Tomorrow, I will take two and only one on Tuesday. Can't wait to get off that damn stuff. I really wanted to get a solid few hours sleep.

Thanks for driving today dad. It was really nice to get out of the house!
