must've been tired last night (Monday); i fixed myself some chili and rice and dove into my book around 6pm, and was asleep on the couch by around 7. sleep is good. woke up around 4 this morning. i'm not a morning person by any stretch of the imagination but it is nice to go about your business in the morning without being rushed.
one of the things i had time to do this morning was check up on Loren's grades. i'm happy to report that it looks like he managed to pull his arse outta the fire. his GPA is hovering around 86.x%, 79.x% in his academic classes, and though he turned in what i'd have to call a less-than-stellar performance it all adds up to meeting the minimum requirements i set for him- barely. there are some really simple things he could have done to make significant improvements in his grades; when he comes this weekend i'll see what i can do to set him up for improvement in the 3rd quarter. last year's 3rd quarter was his worst of the year; this year i expect to see a different story unfold.
guess i should get ready to head for the salt mines.
can't wait for the weekend- BRING ON THE SUPER BOWL BABY! GO SEAHAWKS!
