It really is the little things that count.
Rolled myself out of bed and dragged myself to university this morning. There was quite a bit of back and forth between Financial Aid and the Business Office, and then between Campus Security, the Registrar, and IT. Apparently (for the latter) a name change is a bitch when there is more than one system involved. However, after much patience was expended (and no tears… I am grateful I took an anti-anxiety this morning), I emerged successfully checked in, my tuition paid for between scholarships, grants, and loans, a new parking decal, and a new student ID proudly showing my new name (I opted to NOT have a new picture… Campus Security was making me grouchy and I wanted out of there).
I came home and my partner had french toast waiting, and swiftly added some maple sausage to that. We snuggled, we watched Phantom Menace, the kitties snuggled, and the cable guy came to bring us a new cable box. Turns out if we want to watch Outlander, we have to watch on the HD channel — which we didn’t know we got. At least we’re set for next Saturday…
Progress was made in the house. Several loads of laundry and dishes have been done. The hallway and living room have been vacuumed. The table is now in the hallway, as opposed to the (C)raft room, awaiting a clearing of space in the basement. My desk is set up in the (C)raft room, and I am awaiting one school book. I can register for classes after 10:30am tomorrow… I’ll be at work, then, but, am hoping to do so from my phone. Crossing my fingers. ;)
My poor sunburnt legs are getting better… I wore jeans today and they’ve only bothered me a little. Taco-seasoned hamburger is on the stove and a bottle of mead is opened. Soon the sound of rolling dice will carry me away until it’s time to sleep.
And yesterday was good. Yesterday, we built character’s for the D&D session that J is running. I’m playing a High Elf Sorceress. Acolyte background. It’s gonna be fun… especially since I talk Orc to the half-Orc in the party. I speak Common, Elvish, Orc, Sylvan, and Goblin. Let’s hope that’s enough… at least I’m proficient in Perception, at any rate.
