I said yesterday that I was going to drop Biology but the instructor phoned me personally and asked me not to. I told him I didn’t think I could finish the first assignment by next week’s deadline but he told me to just submit it and even if I fail I can retake it. The deadline to have this assignment is pressing because after the deadline the BC government will step in (Christy Clark!) and charge me for the course. I can’t afford that right now. Anyway, I studied all afternoon and will study tomorrow and attempt the first assignment. I don’t think I will pass because it is just too much information to learn in a short time but that is OK.
I had my mammogram and breast ultrasound this afternoon. Because I am just a few days before my period starts the mammogram really hurt. I could feel myself tensing even as I was telling myself to relax. My neck and shoulders are all tight now but nothing a hot bath with Epsom salts and Ibuprofen (yes, I am taking Ibuprofen!) won’t get rid of.
My husband and I are planning a short trip to (drum roll!) Saskatchewan next month. It is mostly to get away but we have a few little things planned. My great-grandmother is buried in a teeny little town called Pilger. I would like to see where she is buried because as any of my long time readers know I love geneology. I will also get to see where my grandma grew up. As it is now, it is a community of less than 100 people. Wikipedia says this,
“The town’s industries include farming, a bar & restaurant, and a general store providing groceries, a coffee shop, gas station and postal outlet.”
It isn’t a town that has a whole lot going on. It does have a bar. But hold on! Pilger is home the the Annual Pilger Pumpkin Growing Contest. It is proof that there are people that have even less going on in their lives than I. Well, probably not. Close though. And get this. You can go out to lunch when you are there. Dairy Queen! And not only that, you can go out for dinner as well! Guess where?
