Rain, rain, go away....

It has rained for the last week. And it will rain for the next 6 days. It has been a nice break, but enough already. All outdoor activities have come to a halt, with the exception of running the dogs down the road between showers. We will be harvesting mushrooms soon, me thinks!

Today was a red-letter day, as my grandmother would say. This was the day that I had to take my ACTs. These are a requirement of my back-up plan of getting into the nursing program in the Spring. You know, in case I try for the Radiography program again in June and STILL don't get in! Got to have a plan B!

So, anyway, today was the day. And I knew it was going to be a long day, because the start time wasn't until 12:30 PM. That gave me plenty of time to worry about getting there in time (Did I mention that it has been raining? Hard?), or remembering to bring my ID and pencils and a calculator.

But I did get there in time and joined the line with 50 or so other people. Who knew it would take 30 minutes to show IDs and fill in little bubble to spell out your name? Seemed that the actual test would never start, and if you don't start, you can't finish!

All in all, I think I did pretty well. Certainly Hopefully, well enough for admission into the nursing program. I only had to out-and-out guess on a handful of questions, otherwise I could at least pretend to know how to eliminate some of options.

I'll get the results in a week or so.

Other than that, all I do is school work. Oh, and dry off wet dogs. Just ask my neglected husband. He'll confirm that.

On the plus side, I am all but finished with the Math class. I just need to take the mid-term and final, which aren't available yet. I found that this class had a lot of the geometry that I needed to review for the ACT, so it made sense to power through it.

Also, I finished that ice cube experiment and am now on to a nuclear reactor simulation. Unfortunately, I keep having a meltdown (literally) but I will conquer this experiment and make cheap electricity available to the masses!

So, there you go. To recap: Rain, rain, and more rain to come. ACTs taken, Math almost finished, and the world still safe from my handling of nuclear fission!

Hehehe! You make me giggle :) I'm sure you did just fine on your ACT... much better than I could ever do. Please stop watering my dogs, they are going to grow mold soon. I love you mommy!
