Highlights from last week:
*I spent most of the day on Sunday getting ready for the week ahead of me. This included gathering up and printing out materials for lesson plans, and going shopping for some business casual clothes for clinicals. Having an excuse to buy clothes is always fun! I also raided the back-to-school bins at Walmart which contained tons of $.50 gems that I could use for therapy! (stickers, card games, etc). I also stocked up on some fall candles, because why not?
*We spent Sunday night at Luke's grandparents' house, celebrating his grandpa's birthday. We all spent most of the evening playing with baby Lilly.
*Mondays are going to be my fullest, most stressful days, unfortunately. I spent it at a clinical placement all morning, eating a hurried lunch in the car on the drive from one place to another, and then clinicals at another placement in the afternoon. I'm honestly glad my most overwhelming day is the first day of the week, so I can get it over with!
*Later Tuesday night, my mom dropped off a little gift for me, just because. Tuesday was the day for surprises, I guess! It is so cute, and I love it!
*I spent Friday at a workshop for children with hearing impairments. I thought it was pretty interesting, and I also get extra credit for going! win-win. I know this is going to mark the first of many workshops in the next 30 or so years!
*On Saturday, Luke went to the Ohio State game again, so I hung out at home alone all day. I made some coffee, turned on Revenge in the background, wore jeans and a comfy sweatshirt, and made neuro flashcards all day. I'd be lying if I said I didn't love it. And Ellie was feeling a little attention starved, so she sat on my lap for most of the afternoon. It just felt like fall, and I loved it.
Speaking of fall...oh my word. Is the sky ever more beautiful than it is during the fall? I really enjoyed it this week.
