    Now and then I like to read about what you guys do in the course of your day, whether at work or at home on the weekend. I thoroughly enjoyed this day in the sun outside, with the views of the mountains, doffodills in the yard blooming along with peach trees, the cherry and other trees blooming or starting to put on leaves. The sun felt so good on my back, but man am I ever tired !!!!! tomorrow I think I'll take it easy and visit some friends. What did you do? or what are your plans? Whatever you do have a good day !!!!!

    It's Saturday! I cleaned up the apartment, spent the afternoon with my boyfriend, we had dinner, then we slept a bit after ... you know, then we went to a Rocky Horror picture Show production. He dropped me off at home and now I'm checking my messages and RJ.
    Tomorrow is a gym day.

    I am the lazy one in the bunch here.

    I had a head shave, beard trim, and manicure. Then I did a little shopping and had a bite of lunch at home. Afterwards I went to a charitable foundation meeting in the afternoon (which went on till the end of the afternoon). I took a long nap and then had a late supper. After I futzed around on RJ till about two, enjoyed a nice short bourbon, and went to sleep.

    I just woke up at it is 11 on Sunday with all of the church bells of our little Italian town pealing for 11am Mass.

    I'm trying to (finally) bring my thesis to a close. So I'll be spending all day in the library looking at the approaches in different jurisdictions with regards to the legal defences to murder available for battered women who kill their abusers. Yes its that fun!

    At some point I may go down to take part in a demo against the National Front, however I don't feel like I have my activist head on today...its Sunday!

    Tonight I'll be helping draft a new Constitution for my Students' Union due to a change in the Charity Law.

    Fun day...but its all good as the sun is out, and its quite warm...a stark contrast to the rest of the country!

    My muscles have been feeling tight lately. To much hard work at the gym I guess mostly in my arms and shoulders. So I decided to take a yoga class today. Haven't been to a yoga class in like two years. Needless to say 90 minutes in a 85 degree room (Bikram yoga) wore me out! I had not realized how stiff my muscles have become. Guess I will have to start working yoga in my weekly rotation.

    Well good on ya. But since One has been landscaping Ones four terraced acre garden, for past 8 years. Such things are a normal days activity. Took One seven years to dig into rock and clay, one big motherfucking hole. Just to refill with good garden soil, to plane a Grandiflora Magnolia.

    Have some dry rock walls, have to get done one day.

    I ran with my doggies in the morning (before it gets hot) down at Colahatchee Park, then had lunch with my parents at their country club. They're leaving to go back north for the summer soon, so very soon no more weekly visits for a while. Oh, then I bought the "Looney Tunes Golden Collection vol. 3" DVD set. It's going to be a Bugs and Daffy kinda night.

    I went golfing with some friends. First time in about 10 years. You could sure tell that I haven't done something like that in long time.

    2 hour bike ride, vile pace with a bunch of other crazies, shower & nap then wrote final reports & invoices for 2 jobs recently completed (I don't get paid unless I move the paper stuff out the door). Then, and here's something most of you probably don't have to deal with, I spent another couple of hours fooling with finalizing a financial aid application to Tufts University, where my son is in school to the tune of $49.5K per year. Tufts is NOT one of the places that has recently decreed tuition forgiveness to students of "middle class" means....

    I know what you're going through. I put 2 kids through university, one of them took a graduate degree in his field, and now they both want to go to law school.

    Yikes. When I went to the University of Michigan, right after the Civil War, the tuition was $800 a year if you lived in the state (as I did).

    I also walked barefoot to classes, 9 miles each way in the snow, after chopping the firewood and milking the chickens on the farm.

    Thanks jprichva, I too put myself through school (& grad school) before the beginning of time when things didn't cost a whole lot...my son & I are borrowing a bunch of money even with financial aid, to enable him to do what he's doing. But he's in engineering school, a hard worker, on the Dean's List etc, I think he'll be able to get a good job right out of school & we'll get through this OK. Just makes it difficult to relax on a Sunday that happens to be two days before April 15.

    jprichva, and vacyclist !!! You have my full respect for your efforts on your kids college education. Now I am more than ever thankful my son wanted to go into the Missile tech program in the service, and take his education the "Free" way. You guys are to be commended !!! now when I went to college I had to walk both ways up hill, and in them days there were no snow plows in michigan, so I shoveled em for the state in trade for my tuition. tough times fellas !!! tough times !!! LOL !!!! Oh !!! back on subject !!! today I mostly loafed, but did a little work on an old chest of drawers, now I'm sipping coffee !!!
