Lick It

(no subject)

Ha, missed yesterday, too. I have failed, and I am okay with that.
Because I turned in the 15 page paper this evening! With the exception of giving feedback and doing course evaluations, I am essentially done until the end of January!! Woot!! I really don't know what to do with myself.....

Oops

Just realized I never posted yesterday. Welp, guess I'm 'out' of NaBloPoMo, but I'd like to keep doing it. Honestly, I don't know what I'd do if I did win a trip to the BlogHer convention. See if I could get cash instead? Skip the con and hit up the local zoos?

So, belated Thanksgiving to those who celebrate! :)

Up at 5, worked from 7-10, grabbed some lunch, came home, showered, watched some tv, made a buttermilk pecan pie and then the stuffing, then got the turkey going. Took a nap, read quite a bit, had dinner at about 7:45, watched a depressing episodes of ST:V, and went to bed a little after 11.

Today will be a Panera and cat food run in a bit, maybe hit B&N since I have coupons, and then try and get the paper out of the way. It was so nice not to do school work yesterday!

Busy day of not doing that much at work. Last day of training my newest relief keeper, so letting her do (most of) the string by herself so she can get a feel for timing.
Except it's the week of Thanksgiving.

So all week we've been doubling diets and getting hay and getting grain delievered and doubling diets and getting turkeys delievered for all the park employees (since our concessions area has a walk in fridge) and doubling diets and my string is a bear when you first start out, so we weren't out until almost a half hour late, and that was with me helping out with the 30 million education animals.

Not even pretending to do homework tonight, especially since I have to be back into the zoo at 7. Work 3-4 hours, come home, deal with foodage, try to get some paper written.

Crazy day at work. Slowly chipping away at the discussion, and added some info to the results (supposed to be finished) and action/reflection section.

I think it took me about an hour to get two sentences typed and three references entered. Bed time.

No desire to go back to work today. Slept very poorly. Three day weekend was very good, though. Wish I hadn't had school all the way through it. Great for my back.
Believe I have the results section done, and it's amazing what finding the correct article will do to raise one's spirits about the discussion section. Notes taken. Also, yay, one more source. Have the required minimum, but more is always better.
Can barely keep eyes open and it took at least five tries to type 'finding' above, so bedtime.
