Today has been a good day. I'm a lot less stressed, and I've accomplished a lot this afternoon in regards to my homework. I still have quite a bit of reading to do this evening, but as long as it's reading (not typing papers or working on the art project), I can sit on the futon with the cats, and drink wine, and just focus on reading closely. Reading closely is very important as an English major.

I'm starting to spend time pondering what vocation I am most interested in pursuing next year. One thing that is cool is that I found out I'm only 800 hours away from owning the retirement account Providence has been slowly building for me over the past four years. I didn't even know I had a retirement account, but I found out today that I have four vested years. The guy with the retirement program was very nice to me, and now all I have to do is work 800 hours next year (2004), and I will be all set to quit, collect, and begin a career doing something else. I'm pretty excited about the fact I'll get to walk away from Providence with an extra $6,000.00 (maybe a little less, maybe more).

Other than that, Landon and I just returned about an hour ago from NW Car Care, where we picked up his car. They had told Landon on the phone it would be 800 (plus a little extra for a part or two), and then when we got there, they said it was 950.00. We told them what the guy quoted us on the phone, and I guess the guy who did the work and the guy who called Landon got their wires crossed, but since the guy said 800 + a little extra, they had to give it to us at that price, instead of the price of 950.00, which I guess it truly cost. So, after signing over most of one of our paychecks, we are now back home.

We just finished eating dinner. I made egg salad sandwiches (on toasted wheat bread), tomato soup (with a little Parmesan cheese sprinkled on top), and fresh spring salad with mini-tomatoes, and ranch dressing (Landon accidently left our basalmic vinaigrette at work, so I had to resort to my 2nd favorite-ranch). It was a pretty good dinner.

I am now shutting down the computer, and going over to the futon to finish reading Charlotte Temple and I plan to drink a glass (or two) of white wine. That's all for now!

It's been a good day!

P.S. Highlight of the day-realizing my car keys were left in my car that Landon used today since his was in the shop, and having to climb up a tree and through the window of our apartment to get inside. Luckily, the safety lock was unlocked, so I was able to open the window far enough to actually fit my body through the window and into the apartment! It sure scared Felix seeing me crawl through the window!
P.S.S. 2nd highlight of the day-passing one of my professor's in the hallway and having him make eye contact and smile at me. That kind of made my morning that he remembered I was one of his students, and also took the time to smile. It's the little things that count.

Okay, that's really all for now!
