Productive Day

9:00: Wake up.   I certainly overslept this morning - but I didn't fall asleep last night until almost 3:00 since my ankle is swollen from the needle incident.
9:15:  Walk with the dog
10:00:  Start calling ETS trying to figure out what is going on with my GRE scores.
11:00: Give up on GRE scores for a while and work on my Statement of Pupose
1:00: Start calling ETS again.  This time I was succesful!  I finally figured out why my scores were lost - they had my birthday wrong in the system when I took the test last year and I let them no at the testing center. They said they fixed it.  Apparently they didn't because my test was filed under 12/12/84.  My birthday is 12/31/84.  With that worked out I was able to get my score mailed off!  Yay!  (And I got a reminder of what my score is and it was even better than I remembered it being!  Not as good as SAT score - but gosh darn I'm a good test taker!)
1:30:  Order my transcripts and have one mailed to the house and one mailed to UTD.
1:45:  Talked to 2 of 3 Professors I would like to have write my letters of recomendation.  Both of them said yes.  Thank goodness.  I had to leave a message for the third but will hopefully hear back from him early next week.
2:30:  Lunch time!  (With a little bit of The View for entertainment.  I am so disgusted with the show - but I can't not watch the train wreck.)
3:15:  Back to my essay.  
4:00:  Take a break to update Liz's Wedding Webpage - time to add photos of the wedding party!
