10/16 Day one of training

A really good day. I woke up before the alarm, went to the communal shower, and met the first person from my class. Funny that we met at the showers.

Anyway, the first three days I'm taking Supervision Essentials, and there are nine of us in the class--from Wisconsin, Iowa, Minnesota, and Michigan. Two people were at Hurricane Wilma with me but we hadn't met.

The course is actually interesting. We have to take an exam after each section--five of them. Today the instructor asked if we wanted to look over the material before we took the exam, but I just wanted to get it over with so I didn't read the material. We needed 72% to pass and I got an 85%. So I was satisfied.

I'm eating hot bean curd left over from my Chinese meal last night. Plus I have a sandwich left over from our lunch today. I'm saving the Red Cross money. :)

For a while, I'm actually forgetting about everything I have to do before I leave for NC. Okay, I'm thinking about it now because I'm writing about it. But last night I actually read a book (no TV, remember?). And tonight I'll do the same. Relaxing? I'm tellin' ya it is....

Yeah, hon. And without a TV I'm going to bed early and getting up early. Plenty of sleep. :)

Mom, I am happy that you are already in the training. Now let's just hope that your apartment sells quick, so you can totally relax. I can see that you have been enjoying life without a tv, so maybe we will NOT install the tv that we've planned, in your room... (ha!ha!ha!) We have plenty of books to read, Mom!

I'm bringing my own TV, you just supply the cable and dvr. :)
