Snow day!!!!!!

7:21. My alarm goes off. I hit the snooze button. 7:30. It goes off again, this time I get it. Sounds kind of quiet around here. So I got ready and went downstairs for breakfast. My mom was still home, she should have been at work by then. I turned on the TV. Obviously, GRCC was not cancelled. They never cancel. I cut a slice of coffee cake, then my mom suggested that I check the online site to double check and see if school is cancelled. Go upstairs, log on, click on faculty absences, scroll down. Yay!!! My teacher's name was on the list! I only have one class on Tuesdays, so I didn't have to venture out in this yucky weather. Go back downstairs, eat a leisurely breakfast. Then I realized if I did my homework in the morning, I wouldn't have to do it after work. Brilliant. So I did my homework. Then I installed Dance Praise on my computer. I highly recommend this game. It's like Dance Dance Revolution, except that it's on your computer, but it is all Christian songs. So rather than dancing to "Hips Don't Lie", I can dance to songs by Hawk Nelson, Audio Adrenaline, Newsboys, or David Crowder Band! Amazing! It's fun, and it's great exercise. Anyway, enough of my advertisment for the game. So I installed it, but the dance pad wouldn't work. Nice. I emailed the company to see if they had any suggestions. Watched Rachel Ray. Who'd have, her show was about weight loss. :) They tried 3 products in their human lab. Only one of them worked, what I found interesting was that this one was a motivational picture, seeing yourself after you've lost the weight. Apparently that motivated the person to go out and lose the weight. But nothing else worked...just diet and exercise. :) Then I had to go to work. I got out an hour early, which was very nice! I checked my email and found out that when they made Vista, they forgot to include certain drivers that allow you to play certain games. So the company sent me a link where I could download the drivers, plus it gave me two new songs!! Sweet!!! Well, I got it all hooked up. Balanced my bank account, checked email, blah blah blah. Then I finally did some exercise! I had forgotten how much I love this game! I was out of breath after doing a few songs. My enthusiam was short-lived however, when in the middle of a song, I realized that I have a quiz tomorrow that I'm allowed to bring in a note sheet for, and I hadn't even thought about it until then!!! Ahhhhh!!!! Quick take a shower and de-sweat myself. Then, start on that stinkin' paper. I finished, in time, I thought, to watch American Idol, but no, it was only on for an hour tonight, so I missed it. Oh well, maybe I'll go to bed early. Anyway, I think I got a lot done today...homework-wise that is....ahhh, the life of a college student!!! :)


  1. I love dance praise! We got it for Kaitlyn for Christmas a few years ago. We have gotten her a song expansion cd each year since. It's the ONLY excercise I ever get ;)

  2. Dance praise sounds very interesting! Sounds like you had a productive day!

  3. Wow! That's quite a day. And nice that you could have it off of school. I should get myself a dance game I think. :)

  4. Sounds like a great snow day to me!

  5. Libby got Dance Praise from my folks for Christmas.
