| Weekend's Over
|Well, Easter Sunday was another non-holiday for us non-religious folks. Beloved and I both got the girls some candy (I got them bunnies, he got them a crapload of other stuff), and he got eggs and dye -- but they weren't up for the dye-ing and the decorating.
All they wanted to do was play with their Tamapoopy and watch Star Trek. I kicked them out of the house for a while to play outside, but otherwise, it was a pretty laid-back day. I went for a run, Beloved made his first pasta since Ash Wednesday (yes, he was MUCH better than me). We had game night (Clue, again).
All in all, a nice, mellow day.
Oh yeah, and I finished my book.
Now I'm back at school, with my Securities Regulation book open, and my highlighter poised, trying --- trying --- to be a good student.
Fortunately, I'm short a class this week, which gives me time to read a little slower. With a little less stress, and after a little more time taken at the gym each morning.
Next week, I'm short two kids. They're spending time with their father in a different state, and Beloved and I are left on our own. I also get Monday off. It's "Patriots Day" and "Marathon Monday."
Our first spring here (2005), it was very warm out on Marathon Monday, and Beloved and I were wearing shorts. We wandered up to a main road right near our home, and were faced with Boston Marathon festivities. Meat carts, sidewalk sales, lawn chairs, etc. We strolled toward downtown, watching some of the front runners as they went through the last couple of miles of the marathon. One woman from Kenya passed out at my feet.
She was so skinny.
Then we went to an air conditioned theater and watched a movie. We took the T home.
Last year, I think Beloved had to work, and I did outlining or some such nonsense.
This year --- I don't know what we'll do. It probably wouldn't hurt me to start outlining IP (closed book exam ... OUCH). But it probably wouldn't hurt us to have another day of movies and Marathon-watching.
We shall see!!
