Oh dear goodness, do my feet HURT.

Today was move-in day at WMU for everyone but the Bronco Buddies and the freshman. Mom was supposed to be at Grandma's between 9:00 and 9:30 in the morning, so I set my alarm for 7:00 so I'd have time to grab the last-minute stuff and haul almost everything upstairs and cram my car full of boxes. I went to bed at midnight (this was my fault, as I wasn't paying attention to the time). At 1:00 I got up, checked around for some things, threw my sheets and mattress pad in the washer, waited for the load to finish, threw them in the dryer, and went back to bed around 2:00.

Mom, Rob, and Rob's friend Adam arrived at 9:30, and we managed to get the remaining stuff in the truck and drive to campus -- which was already full of cars. Mom had a good parking spot, but she lost it because I had to move my car, and she followed me. We ended up a good hundred yards away, down by the apartments. We did manage to get a cart, so we got everything into the room in only three trips. Finding the room, though, was another matter entirely. When I turned in my info card to get my key, the key was gone. The hall director grabbed the master key, assured me that they would get me an extra key, and let me in so that I could start moving in. But when we got there, there were already two girls moved in.

It turns out that one of the girls was supposed to be in G18, but she was given the key for 118. One of the girls in G30 wanted to be in G18 with her friend, so we agreed that I would live in G30 (which I would have to stay in temporarily anyway). I think I handled it fairly well -- I was patient, I didn't yell at anyone or raise my voice or get frustrated, and everything turned out all right.

Ironically, my roommate is also a Sarah S. There's also another Sarah Nicole on our floor. I find this infinitely amusing.

I didn't have anything to eat for most of the day. I was operating on five hours of sleep, a glass of milk, 800mg of Motrin, and a third of a Hot Pocket until 7:00 tonight. Never have I been so glad to see one of the sandwiches from the dining hall until today. They aren't the most delicious things in the world, but they do their job nicely.

I'm going to go to bed now, as I have to be up early in the morning to go to my cousin's wedding near Detroit. Have a good weekend, guys!
