UPS. The shift is just long enough. Right when you're feeling tired, watching the clock and looking up the belt to see if the end is near, the end really is near. Which is good. After missing a week and a half for the SRP, I worried that it might take me a while to get back into the groove, but it only took one shift. What was nice was that one of my drivers said excitedly "Hey, my guy is back!" One of the supervisers said, "When the drivers miss you, you know you're doing a good job." So I'm back at work, and my fingers and knees are back to aching. I should be getting my fitty cent raise soon.
SRP. It was long and monotonous, but I knew that going in. Outside of my unit not taking care of me by having my orders ready when I got there, things went smoothly. I just checked MyPay today, and it looks like my orders finally came through a week after the fact. I could go on and on about this, but that serves no purpose. "I hate it when you talk of the service this way, it makes me so very low," as Jack Aubrey would put it. So I shall close this section by stating that my pay for 9 days of SRP was more than I'd make in a month at UPS. Huzzah!
Aisy. The scar from her night stand incident in April is healing nicely. We have some anti-scarring medicine for it (Mederma or some alternative) but we seem to have misplaced it lately. I have put up some of her Easter pictures which may be viewed by going to my AIM Profile. We have a second disc of pictures yet to be put up. I may do that this weekend.
College. Grades came out and my hard work to finish up the semester early paid off. "A" in Astronomy, "A" in Honors Philosophy, and an "A" (up from a "B" at mid-term) in College Algebra. With this semester closed, I have only four more classes to take in order to complete my AS degree. Projected graduation date is now May 2007. I started work on the degree in January 2002. Five years on a two year degree!
