He left this morning and I already miss him. It's lonely being a homemaker all by yourself!! Luckily I already have a sub job lined up at my favorite school this week but I'll still need to keep myself busy.
Here's the plan:
Tonight I have a class chat at 8:30pm. Wanna know the BEST thing about online classes? You can drink and participate in class! I will most definitely be chatting with a glass of Riesling tonight...makes for better conversation.
Also, tonight is tv heaven! Desperate Housewives (I'm starting to think I fall into this category. ha!), Brothers and Sisters, Madmen, AND Sister Wives.*swoon* I am super interested in TLC's new show Sister Wives. Polygamy is a weak spot for me. I find the lifestyle is so so interesting. Plus ya'll know about my deep love for Big Love. This is gonna be real life Big Love!
For the rest of the week-
I am sucked into the Hunger Games series. My little sister E, or L for short, gave me the book after she read it for school. I read it in one sitting. Then bought the second book. Now I'm on to the third and final book in the series.
I plan on watching Letter's to Juliet...don't think my darling husband would want to participate in the viewing of this movie.
I plan to bake some homemade, from scratch, yes martha, goodies. :)
I'll be going to the farmer's market.
Enjoying the newly crisp fall air but cleaning out the garage and subsequent outdoor chores.
Can you tell I don't like being home alone? I like to keep myself busy, busy, busy.
Feel free to call and add to my schedule.

I find nothing more relaxing that snuggling up with a good book and devouring the pages. When it's a particularly good book, something very intellectual...like Harry Potter or even better Twilight, poor D gets a bit neglected while I read.
Anywho, reading is a ritual for me and I don't think I could ever enjoy a reading from a Kindle. There is something special about holding a well loved book, thumbing through pages, and laying it down opened to save a spot.
I don't think I would get the same satisfaction from a Kindle. Plus, wouldn't you get eye strain from staring at the screen?

After the wedding D and I traveled to Traverse City to spend the rest of the weekend. Let me tell you, I loove Traverse City. The minute our car rolls into town I instantly relax and am in vacation mode.
love, love, loved Traverse City! We plan to try to visit again in October for the lafe fall foliage.
This past week flew by quickly. D and I finally got a break? on Friday when D had his wisdom teeth removed. He was such a trooper and a good patient. He surgery literally took 5 minutes. Not joking. When they called me back to the recovery area, I was alarmed and thought something had gone wrong because they called me back so quickly. Nope. D was sitting up chatting with the nurse like nothing had happened. He did make a few loopy comments about making important engineering decisions in his current state, but over all he was great. He came on and rested for the rest of the day. I am so thankful he's recovering well!
Now you are all caught up and I can start blogging about my new fabulous fall decorations! :)

This past week I decided to complicate my life even further and begin a full course-load of Graduate level classes.
ha ha ha
I thought I'd "make my life easier" by taking online classes.
ha ha ha
While it IS easier to work from home and not attend traditional classes, the amount of printing, downloading, chatting, e-mailing, etc. is excruciating. I'm going to need a blackberry (hint hint, dear husband) and several ink cartridges just to keep up!
On the bright side...I started reading one of my textbooks today...you know for an assignment due tomorrow...and am finding that I so love the topic. My BA is in Early Childhood Education and this M.ED will not only certify me (early!!) to be an Early Childhood Intervention Specialist but will meet the state of Ohio's requirement for a Masters and hopefully open some job opportunities in a field I love.
Me and little little kids? We work well together. Don't ask me how or why I have the patience for them, but I do. Me and little kids with special needs? We work even better together. Again, I can't explain it. : )
In the mean time, I am off to finish my homework and buy some ink cartridges.
