Busy week (tennis, swimming, doctors, mall)

It's been a very busy week so far. For one, I started a new college class on Monday (Interactive Web Animation). The textbooks is written for students who have Flash Professional CS5. Unfortunately, none of the students have that version yet. The files that the lesson plans were made with won't open in the CS4 version. I, and other students contacted the instructor, who then contacted the school, then wrote to us that we would be receiving a Suite which included Flash Pro CS5. He said that if we needed more details then we should call student support at the school, which I did. Unfortunately for us students, I was told by Student Support that they didn't know anything about that, would do some research to find out what was going on and then call me back. That was mid afternoon on Wednesday. It's now late evening on Thursday and I have not gotten any calls from the school. I wrote to the teacher and told him what I was told. He gave my the email address from the person he got the information from and said to write to that guy, which I did a little while ago. It mostly likely,y will not be until Friday some time before I heard anything. Meanwhile, in order to open the files in the lesson plans, I found, downloaded, and have been using a later version on a 'free trial' basis (4 weeks). The class only last for 6 weeks, so if I didn't get the new package, I'd still be able to do the homework. I will be writing to the teacher to make sure he can open files written in the newer version so that he can grade them. I would imagine so; doesn't hurt to ask though.

On Monday I had an appointment with a different Skin Treatment doctor about a spot of skin cancer on my ear. I have an appointment scheduled for next month to get that removed.

Meanwhile, dear daughter has been on 2 dates. 1 last week and one this week. The 2nd one they agreed to meet at the mall, so I drove her there and then walked around with my dear 16 year old son for an hour and a half while she did the same with her companion. In case you're wondering, neither of her dates had a spark so there won't be 2nd dates with either. The mall was on Tuesday. Also on Tuesday afternoon, dear son, dear daughter and I went to another park and played tennis for a little over hour. We were getting pretty tired, then it started to sprinkle rain, so we came home. Then on Wednesday, my DD and I went to a pool at a park with other home educators and had a good time. After the pool, by the time DD & I got home, the chili we started before leaving for said pool wasn't done yet, so I treated the kids and I to Jack in The Box. Today we got together at another homeschooler's home where her and her husband invited us (and the other homeschoolers in the group) to eat pizza, chips, spaghetti and brownies, and to swim in their in-ground pool. since I had a doctor appointment this afternoon to get a few spots of skin cancer frozen, we didn't get to their place until 4:30. We left there at 6:45 getting home by around a quarter after 7 or so. Got home in plenty of time to watch game #6 of the NBA championship series between The Oklahoma City Thunder and The Miami Heat. So far Miami has had a large lead the entire game (up to 25). OKC is still fighting, but there's only 6 minutes and 24 seconds remaining in the game and they're still 20 points behind. Miami won! Congrats! I was rooting for OKC because they were underdogs and live closer to us.

Plus DD & I have worked-out at the apartment's gym, swam in the pool here, as well as sat in the hot tub. Tomorrow (Friday), I don't think that we have anything planned, though I need to get the oil in the car changed. Probably do that, but not much else, except do some more schoolwork so that I have the three assignments done before Sunday @ 10:59 PM (CST).

Other than that stuff, it's been same ol, same ol. *snicker*
