So, Mike and I had orientation last night for college. They talked a bit about when the school got started, how many people attend each year, why it is a smart choice to go there, all that stuff. I thought "We drove all the way here for this?" Then they started giving us a tour of the campus, showing us all the little things I never knew about, where all the places to get food were, best places to hangout and study. And I started thinking "OK, this is good information!"

It's alot of walking to get everywhere you need to be. I have three classes Mondays and Wednesdays, and each one is in a different building. Alot of stairs, alot of walking, alot of the time! I may very well get my exercise in whether I choose to or not! And alot of the food they seem to serve at the cafeterias seem fairly healthy enough. No McDonalds or Taco Bells, there are some sandwich places, a Blimpies, and a place where our tour guide says serves "real food." This pleased me alot, I was worried I would end up eating alot of junk food if I didn't brown bag each day. There are ways to get junk, vending machines all over, coffee shops with sugary specialties. I just have to continue practicing self-control and only order what I should instead of what I want!

The boys spent the night at Mom's last night, since our orientation went til 9pm. When Mike and I got home it was so relaxing. We made dinner, watched a movie, and went to bed. Of course, Mike kept thinking he was hearing the baby waking up! Funny how we get used to hearing things. Today, I caught up on much needed sleep. I'm starting to feel a little more human again. I forgot how good it feels to sleep all the way through the night with no interruptions. And to actually sleep at least 8 hours! I need to do that a few more times before school starts if I want to get my mind working right!


  1. Actually, there is a Taco Bell on campus.

  2. Oh, I don't remember seeing one.

  3. It was inside the Kennedy Cafeteria. Which we did not go inside. I remember it being in there and the guy mentioned that it was still there.
