FIP went rather well on Friday. This means that I no longer have that conference to think and worry about (worry — well I didn't need to worry as it went really rather well) and whatnot. And I madly wrote a paper on Sunday (as it was due at midnight). Yesterday was also homework-ridden (mostly as writing that paper meant a lack of time to get the other things that I needed to get done done on time).
And boy do I have homework to work on. The online class is a lot of work. My other classes are reasonable (and I guess so is the online class) but there are so many other demands on my time that I find it difficult to keep on top of everything that I need to do and work on. That said, I'm rather enjoying my classes and my assignments and the challenges thereof… it's just stressful as I don't always feel like I have enough time to get everything accomplished that I would like to do. I guess that's where my mind is at at the moment.
Yesterday was Valentine's Day, and unfortunately we didn't get to do much special (other than JD making a very very yummy pumpkin pie. Today we'll go to the ballet (thanks to Beth for the tickets!). And on Saturday I had a remarkably good time at Rednex for their Valentine's steak and lobster dinner (the steak was yummy!) and date auction (but I kept JD from being auctioned off… I still rather like spending what little free time I have with him — it is afterall pretty new to have him around). I think yesterday would have been far better if JD hadn't been suffering from headaches (migraines?).
Anyway life is pretty damn good, but it's also damned busy and I'm not yet at the point where I've found the right balance of getting things done and enjoying myself… but in due time I'm sure that I will get there (or at least closer to there).
