Okay, school just kicked my ASS.

I walked all over the campus trying to find everything--library, bookstore, classrooms, restrooms, computer lab, geek lounges, everything...and it decided to be a hot day, so by the time I got done, got over to Al's and checked on all critters, and then got home, I was BEAT.

Wednesday I used for recouperation--and tried to clean up this house. Amazing how dirty the place gets in 2 days when I'm not there to maintain it...

I got to swim Thursday, and enjoyed it so much I stayed in the water for an hour and a half (the teacher has two classes that overlap, so I was able to get in early.) This was probably--no, DEFINITELTY-a mistake. I was so sore that when TTK got home and I got up to greet him, he asked, alarmed, "Are you okay? You look horrible! You look like you're in pain!"
I did the octogenarian shuffle around the house getting ready for bed, at ten o'clock at night.

I woke up this morning with 3 dogs, two cats, and a kitten on me, and a raging migraine. And cramps. And colitis.
So why am I still awake? That's easy--I fell asleep at 7pm and just now woke up.

Believe it or not, I am REALLY going to enjoy these classes. Hell, I already have my homework done for my computer class! It was scary, though , to realize just how out-of-shape I am...I was winded after 10 minutes of slow-motion water exercises with the other partially mobile members of my "APE" class.

My "acquired brain injury" specialist wants me to take her class, "Coping with an ABI" which I would be fine with (I need the coping skills!), but it meets Mondays and Wednesdays, and I REALLY don't think I can deal with a 4-day a week school schedule. Making it 2 days a week will be quite an accomplishment for a person who has left the house on her own probably 6 times in the last 4 months...
We'll see--I'll give it a chance, 2 weeks, then drop it if I can't keep up with it.
