because it is that time of year again.

It is.

the end.

of fall term.

Praise God.

5 terms left.  In a few weeks, I'll be halfway through the program.  It's more chaotic than normal this year -- I went over the river and through the woods (literally) (and snow) to Shoes' hometown for Thanksgiving.

 A Very Full weekend completed by a fierce shopping trip with Shoes' mom (she is a Champion), lots and lots of niece and nephew play time, and saxaphone playing.

You thought maybe I was kidding?

Shoes and I had a down night and I made him get out his saxaphone from the 8th grade and his high school year books.  Why he humors me, I'll never know.  Why we almost died laughing, I'll also never know.  You should have heard my Lisa Simpson solo.  These times when it's just us - away from work, away from school, away from stress - are amazing.  So thankful for this boy who's so, so good at long distance.

Now.  This is how these next few weeks will wrap up.  Flying out tomorrow to go to Apple Cup (I've packed my ski clothes!!).  Finish my last 2 projects.  Complete my last 3 days of internship.  Dinner with Shoes and the Magees.  A fancy schmancy Graduate School of Social Work party.  Preparing to have Christmas with my entire family (maternal) for the first time in 8 years.

Hopefully these sparse posts will pick up winter break ....
