At Super Duper U

Superman and I are sitting at his favorite coffee shop, both typing away at our computers. It's Week 1 of spring semester at Super Duper University. I have an hour and a half before my next class. It's 5 p.m.

While I was slightly irked to find out that my 2 p.m. professor plans to let us out early Every Time, I did see the silver lining. We have a group project due April 1 (seriously, do you think it's an April Fool's Joke????), so this gives me and the other two members of my group time to plan. It may also be used as study time. We'll see.

I'm praying that my 6:30 p.m. prof lets us out early. Please!

In good news, though, Superman and I had an Ah-MAZ-ing windfall (well, after the fact -- you'll see). We got a prescription for his testing strips for his diabetes, thinking they'd be cheaper that way (they're $1 per strip normally). Well, guess who was wrong!! I'm sure my face held a Kodak horrified moment when I scanned my debit card for $106 for 100 testing strips. I might have fainted, too. It's possible.

However, as I called my insurance company today to discuss the stupidity of this (especially as Superman is supposed to test twice a day), these awesomely brilliant people (seriously) gave me a phone number to call...and the person on the other end has already shipped Superman testing strips and lancets...for FREE!!

WOO HOO!! Let me do my happy FRRRRHHHEEEEE Dance!!! Go ahead, shake that booty!

So, yeah, we do have to eat the $106, but that's okay. We learned, and they're free and being delivered to our doorstep. I'm pretty stinking happy.

Heading down to N'awlins this weekend, too, for a wedding. I doubt I'll get time to see you, Rachel, but if get out of the wedding festivities, I'll give you a call!!

BTW, give a hand to Rachel for designing this way cool site. She's so ridiculously talented. I might be a wee bit jealous.

Just a wee bit...maybe...

But the wedding will be tons of fun, as it's one of my close friend's (and one of Superman's) who are getting hitched, and both Superman and I are attendants. I'm so excited. I haven't seen C since last July (they live in Ohio), so it's going to be a great time.

Happy Tuesday!!!!!!

freebies are awesome!!! :)

we're fortunate that a rich dude with hemophillia gave a poop load of money to the UT hospital - and now Jay has a caseworker and free doctor visits and such. woot!
