Next semester I am taking 6 classes again and it is going to be rough and I get to drive in the wonderful Minnesota winter weather - last night was slick with freezing rain. My teacher let us out at 9 PM but I drive with a friend and her teacher didn't let them out until 9:45 - so I walked around the place and put more steps on my Fitbit. Augsburg College in Rochester is at Bethel Lutheran Church and it is an enormous building with stairs rooms galore--you could get lost with how large that place is - I also had to walk off dinner Augsburg serves dinner to its students and last night it was baked chicken---my favorite...yummy..I am a hobbit at school and have 1st dinner when I get there and 2nd dinner during our first class break...yummy!!! We all pay a 35 dollar student activity fee to cover food, printing, and tutoring for the semester.
Family - We are going to Brainard for the week of Thanksgiving to reconnect with each other and have a bit of fun and family time. I need time away from distractions so I can concentrate on the kids and David. We are taking the kids out of school for two days because they messed with our Thanksgiving holiday by having school Monday and Tuesday instead of the whole week off like we have always had in the past. I look forward to sleeping in, eating junk, swimming, playing games, knitting and other crafts we are bring to do and watching TV and movies. I am truly thankful for this time away to regroup. No homework since I am caught up and ahead of the game-but I have wondered if I could get started with next semesters work? HUMMMMMM.....maybe after Thanksgiving I will email my upcoming teachers and see if there is anything I can work ahead on.
