Playing Hooky

Playing hooky from studying for ten minutes

My last exam for the term. A big, scary one and I SHOULD NOT be playing hooky! I have to go to work today and the exam is ten minutes after work (just down the hall) and I've barely studied all weekend.

But I can't help myself. I have big plans.

My husband is having surgery and I have to stay home with him next week. But after that, I decided to only take online classes this spring. I am tired of the commute. I am tired of two jobs. This spring I want to work in the garden for the first time in 3 years. I want to hike with my dog. I want to do the virtual hike across country to virtually see my brother, who lives in Virginia, where I used to live. I don't have much time before this crazy schedule starts all over again.

I dug up a photo of myself hiking really slowly while I was feeling ill (angina) and I look like HELL! This is what happens when my asthma gets too bad and I've been leaning on my inhaler too much. I am now on better medication and in control and think I'll be ok.

Plus, I look like a migrant worker in the photo. I am 5'6" but the way I am built (no hips), all my fat settles on top of my muscle from my waist on down to my ankles so that I look like a big, solid column. I'm like the stubby guys you see coming in from the fields, all covered with dirt, just a foot taller.
