Thoughts on a Thursday

I was trying to post about Easter and the weekend, but blogger is acting funny with pictures, so I'll try that later. For now, just some thoughts and observations:

There are officially only two and a half weeks until classes are over and finals start! I didn't even realize it was winding down so quickly, but I cannot wait! This semester seems to have gone by quickly, but at the same time last for an eternity. My last final is on May 8, and you better believe I'll be all packed up and ready to go as soon as I am done!

This Virginia weather is crazy and is driving me nuts! This morning at practice it was 37 degrees out there... and now it is beautiful. Just got back from a nice run and it was perfect... not too hot, but warm enough to break a nice sweat. I am so grateful that I picked up running back when I joined the crew team!

I am going home tomorrow afternoon, and my friend Kavya is coming along to join in the craziness. Can't wait. I was supposed to see the Hunger Games with Bryce, but I don't think he finished reading the book, so we'll have to wait! We aren't going until he finishes reading the book--maybe we will just have to rent it later on.

Grandma is back in the hospital. She's been in and out all year, mostly in. Her health is a little crazy lately, and she's definitely putting up quite the fight. Thankfully, she was able to be home for Easter weekend and she had all of her family together and we celebrated with a great weekend.

I'm headed to GERMANY this summer! Woo! Can't wait to see such an awesome family that moved way too far away! This will be my first time out of the country, and man am I excited on so many levels!

Speaking of traveling, I'm headed to Tennessee next weekend for another regatta. Crazy, crazy.

Over the summer, my family is going to try out Tim Ferris' Slow Carb Diet together, and I am basically leading that. I've been finding a lot of recipes for the diet, and I am excited to see how it helps out the family and hopefully we will have a more active summer this time around. The kids always do swim team, which is great. I'd like to do some hiking and camping, too. And running in the summer heat is going to blow, lol.

Suzanne chopped off 8 inches of that beautiful hair today. She's a brave one.

Today I threw my school ID card in a VCU trashcan after my Nutrition class (it was in the bag with the trash from my breakfast). I went to take an exam in my Biology class, and you need your ID to turn in the exam. Well imagine my anxiety when halfway through the test I realized that I threw away my ID. Thankfully my professor is kind of an odd ball, and he let me go grab my idea, then come back and show him that yes, I was actually the person taking the test. I reached my hand into a nasty, VCU public trashcan. Today's low point, for sure.

Alright, off to study for a chemistry quiz tomorrow and then grab some dinner at the luxurious Shafer Dining Hall. Always a pleasure.

I love your blog, Megan! Always enjoy reading how things are going there and what you and your family are up to. I had a good laugh at the ID card. Good thing you got that before the garbage was emptied! You'd be searching in bigger dump areas if that were the case! LOL :) Can't wait to see you!!!!
