I know I'm up late, but it's been a while since we've posted and it's my turn to write... so here goes!
We've been getting into the swing of this new semester, with new schedules and everything the past couple of weeks. Thomas stays very busy with work and school - he's even keeping up with his homework! He and his roommate, Sterling, are doing very well with their Thursday temple trips so far. They've been able to attend two weeks in a row and will hopefully continue this trend!
Social Dance is becoming a much-anticipated Friday activity. It's so nice to have a set block of time that we'll not only get to spend together, but for the majority of the class, get to interact and work together as a couple!
As the title of this post suggests, we've been making a lot of progress when it comes to making all of the arrangements for our wedding. The majority of our invitation envelopes are stuffed and await postage. I bought a ring for Thomas on Friday and it came in the mail today. I think I like it, and I hope he does too!
In unfortunate news, Thomas and I have both been under the weather for the second time in this new year. We're both shaking the last of the symptoms of a cold we both had over the weekend. After a lot of orange juice, Airborne, and Dristan cold medicine, I think those nasty germs have surrendered!
I formally apologize for the lack of visual stimulation in our recent posts. There just haven't been many photo-ops lately. I guess I could post pictures we took of a book Thomas needed information from, but that might infringe on some copyright laws and I don't really feel like getting in trouble. The photos weren't that interesting anyway.
Well, that's about it for tonight. Before I go, though, I will share a funny recollection I brought up to my mother tonight..... When I was around 7, 8, maybe 9 years old, I spent a lot of time after school playing outside. I had a dog to play with - my beloved Maty - and our yard had plenty of interesting things to entertain my imagination. I was quite enchanted by a manzanita bush we had in our front yard, about 4 feet away from the fence. This particular manzanita had grown more up than out, and looked more like a young tree than a bush. For some reason unknown to me at this time, our family had attained about a dozen 8-foot or so stalks of bamboo, which were available to me in the yard (I think we may have built a tee-pee with some of it, I really don't know). Anyway, I recall, one afternoon, using some of this bamboo - which is very sturdy, mind you - and balancing it on the fence and between the branches of the manzanita.....
And then, holding onto the bamboo with my hands, swinging my feet up and hanging there like a sloth!
Mom came out and told me to get down because it was dangerous.
Alright. I'm off to bed.
