I am one semester closer to being called doctor. 🙂 Scary isn’t it.
It is hard to believe that one more semester has come and gone. I wasn’t sure that I was going to make it through, but then I never am quite sure. This semester seemed really hard for lots of people, and I am not sure why that was. It seemed more fraught with drama, more filled with angst, and definitely more constipated with congestion. I am glad it is over, honestly, and I am actually ready for the next semester to start. I have quite a few things to finish before it does, but I am trying to take some kind of break for this week and next. I will squeeze what I need to get done into the last week before classes start. The most important part of what I need to do is to finish my syllabus, schedule, and assignment sheets for my 104 classes, and I need to read at least two books for each class, so I can get a little ahead.
I am looking forward to Christmas. I am looking forward to being with friends and family and I am pretty excited that Becky’s boys will be here along with girlfriends. Thy leave by Christmas Eve, but it has been fun to decorate this year. I am sure that we will have a great time drinking beers and playing trivial pursuit. There is nothing better than drunken trivial pursuit. I hope Adam comes to join us.
Now on to anticipating the Messiah and making Christmas gifts. But first, I have to say this has been the most stress free Christmas ever, because my family decided to make gifts and not buy gifts. I haven’t had one panic attack over a gift this year!
