To-do list. I’ve got one!

I hate when that happens. But I’ve been so busy and have so many things to do, well, my hand was forced. Happily I just managed to cross off a couple things (and one that wasn’t even on the list – hey there WordPress upgrade). Let’s see, I gave Chris the money to deposit into the bank (delegating tasks – check!) and was then able to pay my tuition for the Fall semester’s class. Fees went up $6 a unit.
