I think I have to admit that despite the condition of my house and my yard, I do have certain perfectionist tendencies. When my professor returned the test shown in the photo, my first thought was, "Is she messing with me?" It seemed inconceivable that she would append the word "great" to a B-level grade.
On a more mentally healthy note (okay, that's debatable, too), I went to the gym yesterday and ran a mile on the treadmill in just over 11 minutes. Then I went on to do the rest of my usual two-hour workout, including a half-hour on the elliptical. I thought that my bad knee would be in a world of pain this morning, but thanks to a prophylactic dose of off-brand Advil last night, I felt just fine this morning. There are still a few things I can't do: Hyperextensions, squats (fine, because I hate squats), but overall, despite the fact that my knee is still not bending as far as I'd like it to, I am very happy with the progress it's making.
