Well, it's 10:40 pm and I am officially calling it quits, as far as schoolwork goes, for the evening. Since quitting the afore-mentioned homework, I have ordered my mom's Christmas cards for her (I got her into Shutterfly, the website I'm using), and burned my wedding pictures CD for my Nana to see. Now I am typing for what is probably an imaginary audience. But oh well....it's kind of soothing to just type away and ramble. I am currently listening to Chicago's "Baby Please Don't Go" and loving it.
I just talked to Kurt and he literally hasn't stopped at the hospital since 7 am. He is in the middle of a surgery...when I talked to him I could hear the heart monitor beeping in the background. I thanked him for working so hard. It felt like such an inadequate thing to say. Here I am, listening to Chicago and typing just for the heck of it, and he's keeping someone alive while a surgeon operates on the other side of the curtain. However, he has told me before that what I do is just as stressful...in a different way. It helped to hear that. Sometimes I feel guilty complaining about my stress level or how tired I am...and here he is with the worst hours imaginable. But he is so good about giving value to my feelings. That's a trait that a lot of guys have trouble with. Bless him.
It's been fun looking at my wedding pictures. I'm still waiting on my DVD...hopefully I will get it soon so I can actually watch my wedding. That would be nice. It was such a blur. However, I do remember specifically trying to memorize certain moments. I think I did my best under the circumstances.
A song that I recommend listening to: "Grow Old Along With Me," originally sung by John Lennon, but redone by Mary Chapin Carpenter (I prefer this version). It's romantic and melancholy and just soothing. I love songs like that. One of these days I'm going to write out some of my favorite songs and movies. I would like to know other people's recommendations also.
I am currently reading "Trophy Wives Club" by Kristin Billerbeck. If you have not read any of her books, go immediately to Lifeway and buy "What a Girl Wants." It's a 3-part series, and I think the funniest of all of her books. If you've ever spent time in a SINGLES ministry at any point in your life, you will cry you'll laugh so hard. The book that I'm currently reading is about a girl who lives in L.A. and her husband just left her. It's kind of about healing..I just love her books. So, with that said, I'm off to read a chapter or two. And take the shower that I haven't taken all day :)
