February 24 – March  2

1. Family

On Monday morning at 7:15, I put my key in the ignition and turned.  Generally speaking, this causes a car to start, but not on Monday, not my car.  I did what any self-respecting single girl would do; I kept calm, and I called my mom.  She directed me to I email my boss to say that I would be late and call my grandparents to see if I could borrow their car for the day.

Pappaw* to the rescue!  Within a few minutes he arrived with a different car and offered to give my battery a jump-start.  It took a few tries, but he got it!  I drove directly to the mechanic for a shiny new Interstate battery, playing phone tag with my dad along the way.

So this is a shout-out to my mom, dad, pappaw, and mammaw** for helping me get to work on Monday!

2. Three Day Weekends

This week was PIU’s spring break***.  Staff still had to work this week, but we received Friday off.  It’s nice to get a break sometimes!

3. Pedicures

…even though I am always missing a toenail for various reasons.  I think I secretly like the massage chair more than the anything.


*Pappaw is the southern version of Papa/Grandpa/Pop/Grandfather/etc.

**Mammaw is the southern version of Mama/Grandma/Mammy/Grandmother/etc.

***PIU has an early spring break because it is placed the week after midterms.  Since we start our semester earlier than other schools, our spring break is early.
