I can’t believe Thanksgiving is next week! November 19, 2008

Things here in Fort Worth are busy, but good. I’ve got finals in two and a half weeks and Aaron’s are the week after that. It’s really crazy how fast this semester has gone by. I am truly glad for it though because I am SO ready for it to be over. 21 credit hours, a job, and a rather unpleasant commute everyday has me about to the end of my rope. Luckily though, next semester’s 16 hours will be a breeze by comparison. 🙂 I know Aaron is also looking forward to next semester. He’ll be “working” full time (his fieldwork at the high school) with only 4-6 hours of class.

We’ll be heading down to Del Rio for Thanksgiving. Luckily our schedules work out so that we can leave on Tuesday when I get done with classes. With such a long drive, it’s good that we’ll get a nice long visit in between. We’ve mostly planned out our gift purchases for Christmas and even already gone ahead and bought a couple of them. Hard to believe that December is so close. One of the local radio stations here is already playing Christmas music! It really is rather ridiculous. I mean, at least hold off until Thanksgiving is over. Aaron and I were joking the other day that pretty soon people will be saying, “It’s already March! Why don’t you have your tree up yet?!” I hope that this somehow cycles out and we can have Thanksgiving be it’s own holiday instead of just the segway into Christmas. As a kid Christmas used to just sort of sneak up on you. Now it’s a long, drawn out game of anticipation. Too stressful that way.

Anyway, enough of my tangent about the whole holiday thing. I’m just glad that December is almost here because that means finals (bleh), but also means we get a few weeks off to recover.

That’s all for now, hope everyone is well.

oh and p.s. we got our new bed in the mail and haven’t had to sleep on the floor in two whole days!
