Many have long suspected it, and now the doctor has confirmed it...I have a screw loose. My wonderful Dr. and his wife stopped by his office just for me this morning to tell me why exactly my wrist has been giving me pain. I don't know where my insurance found them but I really do like South Africans, so helpful sometimes.
What a lovely start to Spring Break. For weeks I've been putting things off saying, "I'll do that over Spring Break". So then what do I do? I decide, hey, I'm going to be bored out of my mind with all that free time, why don't I work two jobs that week too? I'm working odd hours up at LU Admissions office and cat sitting for my normal boss. She has two of the most spoiled little kitties. They frustrate me to no end but know that they have me wrapped around their little furry paws.
I went into Spring Break mode last Thursday driving back from New Orleans with Lisl. We'd gone down there to drop off the group going down to Honduras for Loving From God's Heart. Not a trip I'd want to relive anytime soon but I'm glad they made it safely and pray that God blesses their week down there. Came back after sleeping 3 hours and driving 14 only to run off to my 6:30 lab. Somehow I made it through classes Friday morning and then crashed. Woke up 17 hours later to find everyone had left on their own Spring Break adventures. I'm not sure where Saturday went, although Sunday was quite lovely. It’s been so long since I've actually looked forward to going back to a Church on Sunday. I'm glad, at least for a time, I can return to Hope Fellowship.
I've yet to do any of the stuff I actually was supposed to do this week. I did finally finish C.S. Lewis' "That Hideous Strength” It was the third book in a trilogy, I read the second over Christmas. Even though the third book was excellent, I still like the second better. It is uncomfortable I find, to journey along with Ransom, growing with him in book two; only to see him elevated above me in book three as I'm forced to start anew, on the same level as less mature characters. Now if only I can track down book one I could some how piece together the entire adventure. :-)
My poor roommate has been dozing in and out of consciousness the few times I've actually been in our room, trying to recover from getting her wisdom teeth pulled. Jessie and Chris are really the only two people I've seen this week. The campus is far too quiet with everyone gone; it's high time they come back.
