I survived!!!

At first I was afraid, I was petrified….

haha, fake-out – No more songs Smile

But, I did manage to survive my Comps HELL week…barely. I’ll tell you what – I don’t think I’ve ever been so thankful for 5:00pm on Friday to hit!

For half the week I had this note stuck to my door


“Not Now, Chief….I’m in the F-ing Zone!”

If you don’t know what that’s referencing then (1) I feel sorry for you, and (2) you need to watch THIS right now! (maybe make sure there aren’t kiddos present).

Monday I started out strong. Tuesday I almost had a panic attack. Wednesday I recovered. Thursday I was a complete zombie but I just kept writing. And Friday there was a lot of this


and this


but that’s okay because I pulled through, finished up & sent it all in right at 5:00pm on the dot.

Then Chris surprised me with some of this (sorry – no flash!)


and we went out to eat & drink in celebration with a friend.

Today I woke up and enjoyed a leisurely morning. Went on a little run, then came back to pick up Rocky (who hates runs, unless it’s running for a ball), and walked around the neighborhood for a bit. SOOOOOOOOO nice to see the sun! Seriously!

It’s even totally worth the horrific nasal congestion I’ve got going on right now from some wicked allergies I’ve got flaring up (NO IDEA what I’m allergic to!)

This afternoon the grads are having a little end-of-semester “picnic” (they are ordering pizza) at the local park. I made some of Chelsey’s “crack bars” to take, but with my own recipe modifications, of course (I’ll share that tomorrow).

I hope you’re all enjoying your Saturday!

I’m off!

How do you usually celebrate? Champagne? Food? Time with friends?
