We traveled to TX for a few short days and it was heaven. I planned nothing which made for the most relaxing time.
hang out by the pool a few times, went running, visited with family we don't get to see often, caught up our favorite shows, finished a book and started a new one, created a few small crafts, and traveled down to Austin to visit more family and have some dental work done (now hopefully I'll stop having nightmares about my teeth deteriorating and falling out). Of course the trip was interspersed with special TX treats like Blue Bell ice cream.
My favorite part of this trip was that we BOTH got to sleep in several times!!!!! A luxury I thought I would never know again. My parents woke up with Olivia so that we could both catch a few more Z's.
This may not sound like fun to anyone else, but to us it was magical. That little list up there doubles as a list of all the things we haven't gotten to do this past semester/year. Such is the life of 2 full time students who are also parents of a cute baby. Even though I basically don't get a summer, this semester will be so much better in the aspect that Brady is DONE with school. Of course there is always more work to be done. In between taking care of baby O and working, he'll be focusing on rounding out and submitting his applications to med school (this month). Then the waiting game is on yet again.
We did not:
study (partly due to the fact that I forgot ALL my study materials- wish me luck on my HUGE end of year 1 exam on Tues, especially since I picked up a nasty cold at the end of the trip)
*Brady did not officially graduate because we want to wait until he is accepted to med school in case they require him to take another class. He has 1 credit left to complete next fall :) And I will be making him walk and get the cap and gown even if he does have several more years of school ahead.
