I keep meaning to get back to posting regularly, but life gets in the way!
First, immediately after we came back from Philadelphia I had a week-long summer course on XML (and DTDs, schema, XSLT, the works). This means that in addition to running around to internships and jobs, and I had class and homework each night. I prefer this intensive format of courses to semester-long wastes of time, but it does take a toll. Especially when you're an incurably eager beaver like me and spend five hours each night adding on to assignments when we were only 'supposed' to scratch the surface of the languages and throw something together in one. I watched nary an Asian drama all week...it was like being a grown up.
Then, over the weekend, Sweetie hauled me to Who's again. It was a short stay, since my class met on Saturday afternoon too, but it was still long enough to drain me of any extra energy I may have had for things like blogging. Who is feeling 100x better than I've ever seen him (according to Sweetie, he's approaching pre-2007 levels of hygiene and high spirits). This is great because he's fun to be around now, but it also means he wants to go out and do things. And us young'uns are going to do them with him whether we like it or not. So on Saturday evening you could find me on his lawn, with a bucket of marigolds in one hand and a trowel in the other. Sweetie got the big shovel for clearing out big chunks of sod for a fresh flower bed. And on Sunday morning, he was up bright and early and ready to take us to a picnic...but that didn't pan out because we had to get back so I could do chores and get in 20 minutes of "me time" before a full work day at Job #2 on Monday.
Oh, and it was our fourth year anniversary last week. Yay. We've already gotten to the point that we stopped paying attention to it, and I come up with excuses like "We celebrated by going to Philadelphia last week," because I don't want to tap into my energy reservoirs to celebrate properly. I never thought I'd be an old married woman by 23. I always thought I'd be, well, hiding in a lab somewhere swearing off men in favor of molecules.
I have backlogged pictures of food, but right now I have to zip to my internship and don't have time to process them. Geeze. Playing blog-catchup is like trying to pay off debts--the interest keeps piling up!
