Brian and Anne

It's a good morning

It's a grey morning, but it's still good. I got feedback from my reader last night, went through it quickly, looked into a statistical analysis she wanted me to do, wrote her back. This morning I was up early, activated a new credit card, used it to reserve our hotel room for ConJose, took out the trash, started on a list of things to do and a list of things to pack to go to Spain.

We're going to SPAIN!!! My sister and I are going to spain!

We leave for Chicago Friday, leave for Spain on Saturday. I'm going to Canada tomorrow or maybe even tonight. The plan is to come back from Canada Thursday but I have a little leeway to come back Friday - if necessary (if things go really badly at school) we can even drive to Chicago Saturday morning
and still make the plane.

It was really great having Sarah here to visit this past weekend. We had a blast dancing at the wedding - I think we're going to have a lot of fun on this trip. I just hope the train situation works out - I will think positively!

And I just set us up with an ekno calling card for while we're in Europe - you all can leave us a voicemail message by calling 1-800-706-133 -press * 2
then enter this account number:

we can pick up our messages whenever we use the card.

Well, I seem to have burned out on my energetic push. I was going to go out and run errands but CVS called and there are two more days before my insurance will cover another pack of pills. I think it's really evil for insurance to require birth control pills to be doled out one pack a month. In school they just gave us our whole term's worth at one time, if we wanted. But then health insurance was purchased a term at a time, in school. I sigh.

so it's grey out and I'm tired and I called Gary and they're expecting me at his and Anne's around dinner tomorrow now. I think I'll take a nap. it was a good weekend but a tiring one and I need to get up early tomorrow to go to Canada.

I talked to my supervisor and it sounds like whatever I get done by the end of the week he'll let slide through but he wants me to consult with the statistics office and try to confirm that my analysis is valid, maybe do a one-way anova or something. He doesn't know how to do an anova so he doesn't know that it's not really complicated, but professor Macgreggor isn't sure if it's appropriate so although I've already done it I don't know if I'l put it in or not.

At least I have most of my clothes and stuff laid out for the spain trip. And I got my laundry done for the Canada trip. Maybe I can convince Bill to cook dinner.

okay. Nap, then dinner, then tackle reorganizing Chapter 7. again.
