Happy Tuesday!  Before I begin today’s post I want to send my sincerest appreciation and shout out to all the members of the military.  Happy Veterans Day.

Kickstarting the day at the gym is the best medicine for feeling a little frumpish.  I started with an easy run of 3 miles on the treadmill and then complete two rounds of the “Muffin Top Melter” workout.

It really made me sweat and I was glistening with achievement and a desire for food!!!

Breakfast

While I was eating breakfast at the Metro Diner with my family yesterday, I received a phone call from my admissions counselor at Southern New Hampshire University. (GO PENMAN!)

Alyssa informed me that my FAFSA issues were resolved and I would be officially enrolled in my first two courses by the end of the morning!!!  I am so grateful for her diligent work on ensuring that I would be taken care of before the beginning of the new term, which is Monday the 17th, ya’ll!  Shout out to the Admissions Dept at SNHU – you guys rock!

Later in the day, I received my login information for SNHU’s Blackboard program and downloaded the syllabi for ENG 550 and LIT 500.

SNHU Courses

It looks like I will be doing a lot of reading, a lot of writing, but I am extremely excited about getting start in just a few short days.
