Boy, am I glad for the three-day weekend! Having today off was great. I went up to Lexington to watch a basketball game and visit my friend whom I haven't seen since before Christmas break. It was fun, even though I was there for only a short time. I hope this week flies by since it is a four-day work week.
I also liked being able to use my slow cooker today. Normally, I don't use it during the week because I don't feel safe leaving it on while I'm at work. I also don't like the smell of something cooking while I'm trying to go to sleep since I don't have a door that separates my room from the kitchen. I made Chicken Adobo, an easy recipe that I can put together in minutes, forget about it for hours, and devour within seconds. And have enough leftovers for the week - the best part.
Only two more midterms to go and then back to a normal bell schedule! I'm going to miss the three-hour planning periods though ;)
