I am shocked that it is FRIDAY. I have had quite the busy week.
First off, I am thrilled to say that I survived my second semester moonlighting as a professor. Final exam was Tuesday night and Grades were submitted Thursday morning. PHEW! I am relieved that that is over and that I have a hiatus for a while. I took the fall semester off and told them to contact me for Spring 2011 if they were interested in keeping me on, but we'll see how it goes. A lot is going to happen between now and January!
My FIL and I took a road trip on Wednesday. It was a fun time. He even packed a bag of snacks (Red Vines! MIL's Caramel Corn!) for me and Baby Schlotty. If ever a FIL was excited about the arrival of a granchild, my FIL is it. It is very fun when people are as excited as you are to have a baby!
I finished reading Sophie's Choice. Very well-written, but I guessed what the "choice" was long before it was revealed. Lots of context clues. I wasn't as distraught about this book as people told me I would be. I didn't even cry. Maybe because I was expecting it given all the looks I got while reading it. I'm interested in seeing the movie adaptation.
The remainder of my non-work time was spent crafting. I took a plunge last Friday night and started a project for MB's baby shower tomorrow in the ATL. I finished it at 10:30 last night. Phew. Just in the nick of time. I'll discuss more details with photos next week when I return. My flight leaves this afternoon - I'm excited to see the ATL crew. I'll be back home Sunday night, just in time for the Amazing Race Finale!
Here are a couple recent photos:
