This is how freshman year ended up! Hooray! I could not be more pleased. WHEW! Because you just never know what you are going to get with school.  Socially, there were other places that would have been a better fit, but the academically challenging route is what we chose and I think (hope) it will pay off when college applications roll around.

I had another iron treatment at Good Sam, this time, and it was a horrible place, much less nice than the cancer center at Adventist.  The nurse wasn't at all nice (although she was much more proficient at getting a IV started) and didn't offer me even a glass of water, despite the fact that I was the only one there, for most of the time.  Her son is a firefighter and had been sent to Bend to deal with the big forest fire.  While I had a great deal of compassion for her worries, she still did a shitty job of taking care of me, leaving me sitting for almost an hour with a hep lock, in my arm, and no medicine.  So far I feel mildly better.  I had to work in a toddler classroom the other day and was able to RUN around our toddler track with a pack of two year olds chasing me, for several laps.  I was pleased that I did not have an allergic reaction while having this treatment, as I am not convinced this particular nurse would have been composed enough to revive me.

He was testing my level of sentimentality by ordering a COKE.  I allowed the transgression.

I had some preschool directors over for dinner to talk about a new quality rating thing that is most likely going to become a big thorn in my side soon.  I made a fantastic roast chicken, a chicken so fine, Julia Child herself would weep with joy.  Also a salad of butter lettuce, with black and red planed radishes and homemade Roquefort dressing that people were licking off their fingers.  It was unctuous meal of excess.
