Very interesting...

My friend took this picture in S.C. during Spring Break. That's all I have to say about that...

Mon meilleur ami

With my family gone for a week and a half, I had all sorts of grand plans of what I would accomplish. The plan:

1. Write my major paper for a class
2. Catch up on all of my grading
3. Complete lesson plans for the rest of the semester
4. Read for pleasure
5. Make art
6. Watch movies
7. Go hiking
8. Consult on my research plan
9. Refinish our mission settle

So what I really accomplished:
1. Started, scrapped, restarted, printed articles, screamed and cussed about paper
2. YES. Grading is caught up.
3. Errr... I have Monday ready
4. Nope
5. Sadly, no
6. I watched a few bad movies, one so-so movie, and one that I really liked
7. No, but I did go for a drive once...
8. Yes, thanks to Kristen for her help. Still have a lot to develop and think about though...
9. NO!

So, it's now Saturday, and my family should be back tomorrow. I'm very excited about that, but kicking my own arse that I haven't done more while they were away. This whole "higher education" thing is psyching me out right now. Gotta get through to Summer!!!!

Anyway, as far as movies go, I HIGHLY recommend "My Best Friend". Where American "feel good" movies leave me a bit empty, this one delivered for me. Daniel Auteuil is a great actor, and I didn't even notice that I was reading subtitles after a short time.

Well, gotta go recycle. The garage is getting full!!!

Here's to a productive 24 hours...

I grew up in a very religious family and seem to recall a hymn referencing a "mansion in the sky". Do you think it looks anything like this?
