This would not be an Honest blog without sharing... both sides of things.
Life isn't Always funny t-shirts, Ludacris songs and Surprise gifts.
Grad school, work, and extra-curricular things are catching up to us. I have seen more of Brooke and James this week than I have Jared. And Jared has probably seen Bob and Drew/other lab mates more than he has seen of me.
I would imagine that, in some regards, this is more...reality than anything.
But, we haven't had dinner together since... Last Sunday? In fact, I've had dinner alone M, W, Thursday, and Friday nights. hmmm.
The weird thing... it isn't out of a lack of friends or socialization. Wednesday evening Jared had tkd and I had friends over. We made chocolates and watch Chocolat!!! On Thursday night Jared had band practice and I had my usual Grey's Anatomy get-together (omg, wasn't that last one just heart-breaking!??!?!??!). Our schedules just don't seem to be meshing this semester.
jared is working on getting band practice moved to Tuesdays though (the night that I have night class). So maybe we'll at least have a Thursday night in there... sorry Grey's....
maybe we will just have to be extra-intentional about one:one weekend time.
Any other suggestions anyone??
(besides...embrace the alone-time/peace and quiet??? heehehehehe...trust me, i do!)
In other news...
How cool of a mom am I that I....half-way along in this growing process, RIDE MY BIKE TO SCHOOL... Not even just ride my bike...rides my FIXIE in this weather!
(and that was today's ride home...not the morning...)
I will be honest, It is mostly because I do not have a parking pass this semester. But I am finding the silver lining in it. I'm getting a 6 mile bike ride in
...and there isn't much of a choice!! It is either that, or...pay to park in a commuter lot... walk to the bus stop, wait for the bus, walk to class.... which takes Longer than the 17minutes it takes to walk out the door...ride my bike...and get up to the 5th floor studio. And sure, I usually dread having to get on my bike in the cold, but after the first few minutes the good 'ol body warms up and...it isn't so bad. In fact, its pretty damn wonderful. Gah! I LOVE riding my bike(s).
...I think if I ever found out my mom did that, I'd think it was pretty cool...
And I'm sure Jared will give me a ride on days it is pouring rain........ right jared? We'll see what....later in the spring brings...
