I'm at that point in a semester (beginning of Week 4) where the idealist excitement of the first couple of weeks has worn off, and the first unit tests from week 3 are mostly behind me, and while I'm trying to get excited about the next units, I am absolutely exhausted.
It's a good thing I'm married this semester, because if I were in an apartment with 5 other girls up til all hours of the night, I would not have survived these first weeks.
Last week Casey was wonderful (as always) and made dinner (or bought pizza) on a few nights, seriously alleviating my insane work load. He was rewarded yesterday with German Pancakes and Pot Roast.
Yeah, you wish you could eat at my place every day. The German Pancakes were a little different as I was short an egg (but still delicious!) and the roast was spectacular! I got to use my brand new food thermometer and everything.
Some of you may be thinking "But I had to fast yesterday!" Oh, but we fasted last week, as yesterday was Stake Conference.We skipped the Saturday session, as we were providing babysitting service to the Thackerays so they could go see the Avengers. A noble cause if you ask me.
We saw the Avengers Friday night with my friend Gerri, and I immediately asked Casey if we could stay and see it again. They were all sold out of course, but I wasn't joking about wanting to see it again. Must see again! If you haven't seen it, go see it. The blockbuster kicked off the summer by smashing previous box office records, bringing in a whopping $200.3 million. I wish I had thought of that movie, I would be swimming in dough right now... but there's no way I could have done it half as well as Joss Whedon.
As for the rest of the week, it was eaten mostly by my Kierkegaard project. Especially Thursday. Please don't ask me about Thursday.
Off to class!
