Baby, It's Cold Outside!

Well it snowed here in Georgia yesterday and yes they closed the schools. We literally got a dusting - if that. You can still see the grass! Anyway, the son is home today and is thrilled. I remember going to school with drifts of snow over my head! But that was another time and another place.

I finally had a full day with my Body Bugg. I decided to wear it on a day when I did absolutely nothing...really just dishes and taking a desk to the trash. The rest of the day was spent working at the computer and reading. I was amazed how much calories I burn by doing very little. I am anxious to see how it looks Monday after my days return to normal after the break. I had my coaching session yesterday and had no idea this little jewel could do so much. It will take me a while to figure it all out, kind of like the cell phone I still only use about 10% of. Not really sure what 4G is but I hear it is cool! Speaking of my phone, I found a cool app that will allow me to scan the bar code on any item and it will automatically upload the nutritional information into a program. Isn't that awesome??? Just hope I can figure it out and get it to work.

School and work/school starts Monday. I got two of my texts yesterday and this one class is going to be a challenge. By challenge I mean staying awake. It is the Psychology of Adult Learning, even the title made me yawn. I hope the professor is interesting. The other class is Quantitative Research in Education AKA Educational Statistics and this is going to eat my lunch. The only thing I hate more than math is statistics! I don't hate math as much as I am scared of it. I have survived regular stats and engineering stats so I hope this one is similar but it looks really different. The professor used to work at the same GPC campus as I do. I thought he was familiar.

Watched the BCS Championship last night. I did want the "other crimson" to win but felt horrible about Colt McCoy being injured. I felt bad for their freshman QB who was thrust into the awful situation. I did get irritated with some of the coaching calls. Almost enough to make me switch sides...almost! I am not sure what the outcome would have been had McCoy played. I know both teams would have played a different game so who knows. Being a Sooner and having survived a year where our QB was injured twice and we pretty much started a new offensive line every game, I really felt bad for McCoy. I guess next year will be very interesting with all the changes in the Big 12 and SEC.

Guess I better go make some lunch for the kids. Ash is home sick from work today. I think she has bronchitis. Need to make a Rx run for some meds I guess.
