I have been kind of MIA on the blog the past few days. I haven't really done a real post since Thursday, which is just unheard of for me! Here's the deal: it's finals week. And I got called last-minute to sub on Friday and Monday! A total blessing, but it has made for some very busy days with no time to blog.
I took my first final this morning, and my next one isn't until 6:00 tonight. I'll then take my final final (hehe) tomorrow morning. I thought about using all of my extra time today to study. But I haven't blogged in so long! I guess you can see how that internal debate ended. Honestly...my brain needs a break. And I study better under pressure anyway ;-)
I'm going to have a hard time recalling how I spent last week, but I'll try my best.
~I was pretty sick on Sunday (probably with another sinus infection). And while that doesn't sound like a highlight, it did give me an excuse to chill out on the couch and just enjoy the Christmas lights. And read a book for fun.
~Luke decorated the entrance to our part of the house with the same type of big, vintage-style Christmas lights we used on the tree. I love it, and it makes me happy every time I come home :-)
~ I definitely spent most of my time studying and tying up the loose ends of the semester.
Isn't the IPA cool? I can now do narrow transcription! (it's what my 6:00 exam is on)
~ On Friday after I'd studied all week and subbed all day, I cut myself some slack, and allowed myself to have a total veg-out night. It was so nice!!!! I ordered take-out for dinner, and then when Luke left for basketball, I turned all the lights out and enjoyed the glow of the Christmas tree while I watched movies. An introvert's ideal evening :-)
I grumbled a lot when Luke purchased our projector and turned our living room into a mini movie theater. But I have to admit...it is nice for movie nights.
~I spent Saturday working on projects, and I finally began painting my dresser that I found at a garage sale two months ago! I'll have it finished tomorrow :-)
~ On Saturday night, Luke and I went out with our friends Jesse and Rachel. We ate a delicious dinner at TGI Fridays, and then headed over to Malone University's Christmas program. It was a great night! I always love Malone's Christmas programs. Such beautiful music :-)
It was an okay week, but I'm thinking this week will be a lot more fun! Especially since I'll be on Christmas break starting Wednesday afternoon!!!
