Our friend took this iPhone picture of us a couple of weeks ago when we were at the pumpkin patch and while I think we look so silly it makes me smile. Especially because I am smizing so hard.

This semester is rough you guys. Jord is gone all the time with school, work, meetings, presentations, research, blahdy, blahdy, blah. It just so happens when he is usually home, which is practically never, -- I am usually teaching. Most days he leaves with me in the morning around 6:30, or so, and doesn't come back home until 7pm or 8pm that night. This is all after pulling the usual all-nighter and so he is either ready to go to bed for the night or go to bed for a nap to get up and pull another all-nighter. This may sound to out there to be considered the norm but let me tell you. It is the norm. It is exactly what happened today and four days last week and who knows how many days the week before that.

While this semester is a tough one, supposedly it has nothing on the first year of pharmacy school. Which makes me again indeed thankful that I chose to get my Master's degree and was so busy with that I didn't realize exactly just how much time Jord and I spent back to back studying at our desks.

I'm so happy for this time in our lives that we are able to educate ourselves and prepare ourselves for a better future for our family but today is one of those days that I'm ready for pharmacy school to be done and residency to be here.

Okay. Rant over.
