Dan and Eli both got sick last week, so I finished up as much as I could on my own. I'm hoping I can sneak back over this week and get as much as I can from the yard, but it looked like Mr. Landlord's truck was parked in front of the house today so I just drove on by.
I have given up on passing my Trig final. With all the work this move has required, I can't see how I can possibly catch up now. I'll try to talk with my professor tomorrow and see what my best option is - I would like to be able to re-take the class, maybe next fall. I have consistently been an A student, so this is a little bit painful for me.
I am slowly getting unpacked, but I really (REALLY) need some better bookcase options. I am not at all sure I can build them myself, but the off-the-shelf options I've found are disappointing and I'm not finding much on Craigslist besides junky laminate bookcases with saggy shelves. It's going to take a lot of work to get the sunniest part of the yard prepped for gardening - It's covered in that horrible "landscaping" gravel that seems quite popular with mobile home owners. I can get most of it off fairly easily (it's on top of heavy-duty landscaping fabric), but there is a fair amount embedded in the dirt underneath so I will have to build a sifting screen to get more of the rocks out. THEN I have to figure out what on earth I'm going to do with all of that gravel. Maybe I'll make a "free rocks" sign and cross my fingers.
