So, yes, I admit I am a horrible blogger these days. Multiple times a day I log into my igoogle account to check email, google docs and my reader feed, and I am always reminded that I need to post too. But missing the traditional Christmas blog post, then the New Year’s “I make a resolution to post more” blog post, and the “I went to New York again” and the “I’m so busy with school and life” and well, here we are… The wrap up post.
We said goodbye to Duke, who had been dealing with a degenerative spine disease. Although it was sad and the boys both cried, it’s good to know he’s not only with his favorite family member, but also walking around without pain now.
The boys got lots of presents for Christmas, I hung on by a thread during finals, enjoyed every minute of sleeping in during the break, and dreaded waking up early in January. Along with five other BYU students, I used my half minority side to get me into a recruiting fair, which subsequently got me an internship. Yes, I’m very excited. Yesterday I took the boys in for an eye exam. We left with the new knowledge that Mason needs glasses and Milo has to wear an eye patch for at least the next six weeks. I understand, my genes have now failed both my children.
The boys are boys. Half the time they’re copying each other, fighting over the Wii, and pushing, the other half their playing together, making pictures for me, or begging me to buy them weird fruit to try. I’m feeling everything that comes with the last semester of school, added to work and cleaning the house and keeping up on laundry… I’m busy, worried about actually having to make a decision and get a job, and so glad I don’t have to care about my last semester grades too much (oh the beauty of the advertising world).
Now that I’ve done my duty in catch-up, I’ll let you know what the future holds (since I probably won’t get around to blogging it later).
I graduate in April, the boys finish school in May, and my internship is June and July. I’m looking into selling my house, so hopefully after I graduate I’ll be moving my stuff to some lovely area for storage. Because it’s only temporary, and housing like that is harder to come by, the boys are staying in Utah with the best two sets of grandparents I could find them. (Maybe I’ll talk one of them into bringing the boys out to visit me.)
Then it’s hello world, please pay me money to do something I like, and please make it enough to buy weird fruit for my boys.
