Quick note before starting the day

I made my last morning trip to UTPA. I dropped my statistics class this morning. I just wasn't getting it. There is a lot of a priori information that I have not been able to recall from so many years ago. I will have to retake the first part and follow it by the second part right after. The professor suggested taking the accelerated program that combines Stats I and II in one semester. I'll do that. Now, I have 3 classes to deal with, all afternoon classes.
I'll be going in to work on the bathroom remodeling job today. I just need to hook up the shower drain, add the shower floor with a slope, and install the shower pan. The walls are not plumb, so I'll have to move the boards around to correct that.
Yesterday, I was out of commission. I had a banana dessert before going to bed. I had an idea, but I didn't know for certain that I have a food allergy to bananas. I grew up eating bananas, so this is a late onset allergy. So, around 4 AM I woke up with hives and shortness of breath. I gulped down some benadryl for the hives and grabbed the primatine inhaler for shortness of breath. Now I know for certain I need to stay away from bananas. Another allergy that breaks my heart, if I really am allergic to it, is avocados. I don't know for sure, but I suspect it. Getting the reaction and the ensuing stupor from the benadryl make testing it out unpleasant. I can live without bananas. I really love avocados. It's tough to see my family eating guacamole and pico de gallo with avocado. So, anyway, I slept through most of Wednesday morning before going to school.
