{much needed weekend}

i have made a discovery i'm assumed has been made by many a grad student before me...


for real.  who knew that extra sleep could do so much for a person?

this weekend has given me the extra umph i think i need to get through this last month of grad school (that and the fact i am no longer waking up at 5:45 am!  everybody reading this needs to give a cheer for that...)

it was so great to relax, to cook (ian and i baked!... homemade bread, homemade cupcakes)

we took my favorite munchkins swimming, and swimming with an almost 2 year old and a 3 and a half year old is just fun!  they have so much fun splashing and swimming and jumping in, ian and i laughed with them for 3 hours while we swam and played... hello joyful heart!

we woke up super early yesterday to go cheer on lots of friends at the bluegrass 10,000 (and made a commitment to run next year...), we relaxed and played lots of cards, made a campfire and roasted hotdogs, brats, and marshmallows, and got to hang out with wonderful friends while we watched the fireworks.

today, it's back to the grind, but honestly, i'm not dreading it.  without speech camp, life gets to slow down just a bit, to a slightly more manageable pace, and i only have 1 month left of sitting in a classroom.  1 month.  how crazy is that????

**side note... does anyone know of someone looking for a place to live?  or a job... i'm currently looking for both.  if you hear of either, my gratitude towards you will be immense :)

happy tuesday, everyone!
