Ideal Weekend So Far

Thought I would check in since I finally have a few minutes free. Woo hoo! My last full semester with work and two classes is behind me. I am finally in the home stretch for my degree here. Two things this summer then a capstone class fall semester and I done.

So to celebrate being done with classes for a while, I'm trying to celebrate what is good about my life. Thursday evening, I went out with friends from my program and had a lot of fun. Last night, the hubby and I grilled out and then went for ice cream. (And I won some Dancing with the Stars tickets, which is exciting for someone like me who really likes watching ballroom dancing.)

This morning, I got to spend some time with my hubby, work in the yard, and go to the gym. Beautfiul weather here in the low-to-mid 70s and clear...just the way I like it. This afternoon is looking for home remodeling stuff, perhaps a bit of shopping, and visiting with my hubby's family. Tomorrow, it's church, then back south to see my family for a few hours, and maybe squeezing in some home decorating and/or scrapbooking.

I really enjoy learning, and I do enjoy my classes. But if anyone ever tells you how hard it is to work full-time and do a graduate degree in the evenings...I'd believe them. It's okay for a term or two, but when you hit year two or three of that stress's exhausting. I just haven't had it in me to write much lately. Thankfully, my load is starting to lighten a bit, so I am hoping to get back into blogging more. Stop by and hopefully there will be more here soon!
