This week has been FABULOUS. I love having grad school to work on during the summer. I have no full time job (I’m unemployable for 90 days aaaahhh), There is no football season happening anywhere, and I have no shows to rehearse for, no shows to produce, no shows to stress about. This is the way to get a college education. Oh wait, that’s how I got my bachelor’s degree…by just concentrating on one task. Hmmm.
This week I built four walls in my basement (I completed all of the framing in 5 work days), I kept my 3 year old alive (mostly by not killing him), and I kept my wife from having a nervous breakdown as she approaches the end of her graduate school experience, culminating in a huge proposal in two weeks.
I’m livin’ lazy.
This class has been a breath of fresh air compared to the statistics class that I suffered and sweated through last month. The discussion of real issues is so much easier than discussing whether the number is 3.24 or 3.336 . I so don’t care if it’s one or one.other !

I've said for seven years that we should finish the basement. Seven years. I have been working on framing out walls. Two days of work and we have a little more than half of it done. Two more walls to build, then the electrical can be put in, then the drywall can be put up. Then it will only be a few more years to get carpeting and ceiling in place.

Josh was placed under sedation for his MRI today. It was quite an ordeal to get him to take the liquid medicine to knock him unconscious. The scan took about 40 minutes. Afterward the doctor on sight told me that the scan was "normal" There was no sign of anything to worry about. Great News. Now we have a perfectly normal little boy with Migraine headaches every 30 days or so. Hmm, I wonder what will be the next challenge.
