What a rough couple of weeks!! It wasn't that we were doing any grueling activities or anything - it was just one thing after another. Hopefully we are settling back into our routines and schedules now and life can start to look a little bit normal - for us anyway. (It's all relative!!) Eric has 3 more weeks of classes and then 6 finals in 7 days -yikes!! So he is already gearing up for that. He has stacks of notecards sitting around and it's not uncommon for my printer to be tied up while he prints out more. He's so dedicated and so stinking smart but it is still a lot of work and wears on all of us. I think it helps to know that he is in the homestretch! He scheduled his classes for his last semester!! I'm not sure who's more excited me or Eric! We'll be moving home in about 7 weeks. This town has been wonderful to us. We've made great friends, found a wonderful church, enjoy easy access to all the fun stuff to do in The City, wonderful summers full of easy water access, and LOVE the food here :) but it will be good to get back home. I'll miss being able to go to the grocery store in my pjs - since we know so few people - but even that is changing. Last week I was at Wal-Mart at 8:45 on a Thursday morning and ran into 3 people that I knew. Charity commented on it as we were leaving. She said, "We knew lots of people today!" My response - "Yep, that must mean it's time to move!" Bittersweet since we DO like it here. Why can't everybody we love just come up here to stay?!! Of course we would need to find a new place to live because I NEED a washer and dryer!! More later!
