ahhhhhhhh, it's so nice to put my feet up & rest. i've been on the go all day, but i'm feeling a good kind of tired. i love this kind!
went to my interpersonal communication class & the professor covered the last chapter in our book today. the next four weeks of class will be presentations & finals. i'm going to miss this teacher so much. i hope we can continue to stay in contact with each other somehow.
got home, said hello to a bright-eyed & bushy tailed snookms, straightened up the house a bit & greeted all my spawn with a good afternoon. they're all on spring break & are getting to sleep in late. it makes me happy to see them get extra rest. i got really restless so i dug the lawn mower out of the garage & proceeded to cut the grass in my snow boots. i decided to wear them this morning to class even though the weather is totally clashing with that decision, but i was too lazy to dig for normal shoes in my closet. my feet were so sweaty when i was done that i could barely walk. i couldn't help but wonder if that's what it feels like when you get stuck in quicksand. (me & my weird childhood self musings). kind of sucked though because the lawn mower kept dying while i was pushing it along & finally it just gave up altogether. snookms came out an hour before he had to go to work & managed to take the whole dang thing apart, fix it & finish mowing the front yard. that dude is a fucking machine, i'm telling you.
after snookms left for work i swept the sidewalk, the driveway & the neighbor's driveway cause our grass blew all the heck over the place. i was sweating so bad that i came right in & took a shower. i love the feeling of walking outside to enjoy the fruits of my labor after a fresh shower. i saw shespawn riding her bike up & down the street & it looked so fun so i threw on my hello kitty pajama boots & a hoodie & we went for a nice bike ride together. afterwards she wanted to go to the park, so i rounded all my teenager nuggets n friends up in the van & headed for the park. it was really boring so we left after 20 minutes & hung out at my mom's for an hour. she took me on her annual gardening tour to show me all the new pretty things that are growing in the yard. her & my dad have transformed their yard into a magical wonderland. i love all the pathways they paved with bricks & rocks & clematis & tulip trails & all this other crazy bleeding heart lushness. my mom really knows her way around a greenhouse!
after we left my mom & dad's house, we headed back home, just to turn around & have to leave again to take fezziwig to his bff's new house. SO TIRED AT THIS POINT.
come home, make spaghetti & hamburgers for dinner, have a nice dinner convo with shespawn & her bff about family grudges. now here i am, dazed & confused & delirious from lack of sleep. heck, i had to break in the middle of this entry just to stop & pick up fezziwig from his friend's house. it's kind of fun to drive late at night with a van full of teenagers on a pretty night like this though, so i'm not complaining. plus snookms is due home from work any minute & i've been missing his face all day. i can't wait to snuggle up to his neck & smell his special snookms' scent (tm!).
ohhhhh yeah. i got an email from one of the members of The Atrium & they said they were excited to read my submission & would get back to me within the next few months. my dad asks me everyday if i've heard anything back from anyone, which is kind of flattering to me that he cares that much. like i said, even if my paper isn't accepted for publication, just all of the things that have taken place in the meantime as a result has been really uplifting.
i think i might go play some guitar before i fall over from sleep deprivationnnnnnnnn. goodnite <3
