Weekend Recap

Friday I finished up my second week of school. Time flies when your having fun? :/ I packed a lot in on Friday - a pre-class workout, class, phone banking for a student organization I joined, a clean-out-the-fridge lunch, a little work, and a brief hike to the bus station to go home!

Let's start with Fridays lunch. Spinach salad with the last of the sun sprouts, last of the tomatoes, a peach, balsamic vinegar, EVOO, and s+p. And to the right a turkey (last of the turkey), hummus, and sun sprout sandwich - delicious!

Next up was the bus. This was my first experience riding the Greyhound, and it was memorable. Most notably because of the intoxicated man who hopped on the bus during our first stop shouting "Hola! Como estas?" while blinking and squinting his right eye. . .

I have to be honest, I was slightly relieved to be off the bus at that point but I am sure I will do it again. I had a great (too short) weekend at home! It was so wonderful to see my Mom, Dad and sisters. I also saw quite a bit of my extended family when we celebrated my Grandpa's 82nd Birthday on Saturday night - it is a rare but special occasion when everyone is able to get together. AND then I saw my other Grandpa and Grandma this afternoon before I left to come back to school! I am so lucky to be surrounded by such a wonderful family.

I tried to carry the excitement and enthusiasm of the weekend back with me to school (in hopes that it would fuel the homework that needs to be done ASAP). However when that fails we must turn to lattes with our names spelled wrong on the side for fuel.

Have a great week!
