Vacation Photos

We’re Baaaaaaaack!

I’ll have some photos to share tomorrow (I think — I’m so exhausted!) but we’re home safe and sound.

And we had a great time ;)

We’re on Vacation!

Summer VACATION Plans!

Summer VACATION Plans!

As of this morning, Jazz and me are off to Southern Ohio to stay in a little cabin deep in the forest. Yes, that’s an upgrade from camping in a tent that I’m really happy about ;) But even better is the fact that… :D Alec and Carter are coming with us!


Now, before Deedles, Pat, and Kimberly can say it, or Mary and the Krises can think it, there are two bedrooms so Slutty McSlutterson will not be visiting :P Doors will be closed at night and that’s the end of that. Seriously. It will all be very chaste.

{sigh} Stop laughing.

Yeah, I know… :P {hehehehe}

Stories and photos on Tuesday! Be good out there while we’re gone ;)



Happy Mother’s Day!

normanrockwellthanksgivingpieI just want to let you know
You mean the world to me
Only a heart as dear as yours
Would give so unselfishly

The many things you’ve done
All the times you were there
Help me know deep down inside
How much you really care

Even though I might not say
I appreciate all you do
Richly blessed is how I feel
Having a grandmother just like you

And to all the moms out there who care for a child, regardless of your title or theirs, I wish you a day of peace and joy and little treats so you know, without a doubt, you are wholly loved for your devotion.


My Final Final

That’s it. I’m done.

And it’s really hard to process that I’m finished with my bachelor’s degree. It doesn’t seem possible. Way too fast. I just started!

Didn’t I?

But I’ve taken every course and checked it all what seems like a hundred times, had other people and even computers tell me the same thing: I’m done.

I finished my last final and actually started getting weepy right there in class. Not sobbing or anything, but tears and sniffing and just sitting there trying not to cry all over the booklet containing my last essay. The prof was alarmed and rushed over, assuring me my grade was already excellent and not to panic over the essay, I could do it. Of course, then I felt bad for being a big emo baby and explained that I was just done, I knew it was good, and it eas my final final. In a few months, I’ll graduate.

I’m done.

She hugged me, took my essay, and wished me luck. I crept out while trying to salvage my mascara and some dignity.

I went to Jazz’s office, of course :) There’s a spot on the floor behind his desk where I sometimes sit because it’s out of the way and I can spread papers out or whatever. This time, I curled up right there and took a nap on my backpack. Everything was just so draining! I still felt like a big baby, napping on the floor like that, but I did it anyway. I’ll be a grown-up later :) There’s time yet.
