Reasons why today is awesome:
1. I finally got a grade on my first project (one paper on Death Comes for the Archbishop and one on The Sun Also Rises. I’m not really sure why these were combined as one assignment, because they’re two entirely separate papers). 97 out of 100, with the comment “supernally good”. Never mind that I had to look up “supernal” (of course, I could infer from the context, which involved the word “good” and a high score, but I like to be sure), I’m rather happy about it. And relieved, because I’ve almost finished the second project (papers on The Unvanquished and Jonah’s Gourd Vine) and this means I don’t have to scrap the entire thing and start over.
2. Tomorrow is the last regular swim meet of the season, followed by Division Championships next week. Starting on August 2, I can sleep past 6:30 on Saturdays. I could weep with joy.
3. I just had lunch with a friend I hadn’t seen in over a year. She was lovely, as always.
4. My children were hilarious this morning. If you haven’t seen a 7 year old boy and a 3 year old boy sing “shake shake shake shake-a shake shake” while actually shaking what I (their mama) gave them, let me assure you that it’s pure gold comedically, all the more so when the boys in question have no idea that they’re being observed.
