the first full week after Christmas and New Year's sucky-suck-sucks. always.
not only do you have the holiday hangover/burnout, but it's the first full week back at work/school, and that, my friends, is just full of it.
not only that, but i'm suffering from photo withdrawal. i'm so in need of some good subject matter, but dang it, by the time i get out of work, when the light is golden & perfect, i'm too beat to do anything.
speaking of photos...here's reason # 4,578, 391 why i am the Queen of the Doofuses.
this past week was the beginning of my next stage in the photo class. i had signed up for it way before Christmas, and last weekend asked Brendan to drive out there so i had an idea where in the heck this place was.
(we had been there once before, for an organizational class. the only thing i got out of it was a different way to fold socks. man, that was boring.)
Wednesday, i drove out to Yorba Linda right after work. Yorba Linda, where a lot of our summer/fall fire was, is about 35 minutes from our casa...but of course, driving at prime drive time can boot the time up. luckily, traffic was light, so i made it out there in good time.
the fun part is, the school where this class is, is in the middle of reconstruction to become a junior high. the REALLY fun part, is that this is up in the hills. coyotes are there. not much lights. not even the campus is well lit.
i was trying to not freak myself out...imagining i was hearing the theme from Friday the 13th or Psycho. thankfully, no murderous rampages happened that night.
once i got in class, i managed to drop my brand new $300 glasses onto the floor. and watched in horror as the lens popped out on one side.
oh dadgum it.
i spent the rest of the night trying to get the bloody thing back in.
the instructor wasn't there that night...which i knew. he's on a cruise until next week.
so, while i was fighting my glasses, the sub handed out the class outline.
funny - it looks exactly like the one for the class i just took.
i signed up for the beginner class. again.
i have no problem, really, taking the beginner class again...but i'll be a monkey's uncle if i'm a-gonna take it out in Yorba-freaking-Linda.
then she mentions the intermediate class (which i wanted) is full with a waiting list.
knowing what i do know about Dave, the teacher, is - i should be able to crash the class. man, i hope so, i don't want to have $70 go down the tubes.
although it might teach me to pay more attention to what i'm signing up for.
naaaaah. once a goof, always a goof.
in other news...
the Husband had a phone interview with a company in Mission Viejo Tuesday...a town about 20 minutes from us. now they want to meet him this week for another interview.
prayers, please that this works and he can become once again a productive member of society.
