Who thought the end of the semester would be as crazy as it was. I knew going into seminary life was going to be crazier with a family, working as much as I do and wanting to have some personal time. But this has been almost the craziness as it has been. Thursday before finals week my daughter came down with a lung infection. She had to be put on a nebulizer and we had to give her a treatment every 3-4 hours. Needless to say that was very time consuming as each treatment took 15-20 min to give. Over the weekend she did not get much better, in fact she got worse. So I kept her home and took her to the doctor’s on Monday (the day a paper was due) and she had a double ear infection as well!! Poor girl!
I tried to finish my prison ministry paper between naps and nebulizer treatments. Tuesday was better with her and Wednesday was my last swimming class to teach and I had to work. Which left me on Thursday with two papers to finish. I finally got the last one done today. A day late but I felt it was an okay paper.
I have one more paper to finish and then I will finally be done with the semester. I should be done with everything by now but with the craziness I was granted a few days extra to get done.
There are still Christmas presents to buy and holiday cheer to muster up. This year has been the first year where I felt so unchristmasy it is crazy. I hope next week I can get in the holiday spirit some more.
We will be leaving on the 25th for New Hampshire. We will spend a few days visiting my wife’s side of the family and then we will travel to Vermont to visit mine. I hope to see some friends over New Year’s but we will see. No plans as of yet.
I don’t have a class until the 21st of January. So three weeks where I will be “free.” I must be careful because my “free” time seems like the most hectic for me.
I have never gotten into the New Year’s Resolutions per se, but I am going to be true to my 100 things to do before I die list and pick 5 to accomplish. The other thing I want to do is to take more pictures. I am thinking about starting a photo blog. I think that would be pretty fun. I really would like to get into taking pictures some more. I might even try dig some old pictures out and post them.
Off to dinner, Franks and beans tonight! mmmmm
