Oh man, this weekend was CRAZY! My mom, dad, stepmom and parents in-law were here for some reason. Hmm, wonder why.
Meanwhile. before the ceremony I got bored, so my mom and I went for a walk. We found this:
So yeah, graduation with a raging case of ADHD is umm, interesting. K managed to get hooded despite being quite a bit taller than the professors doing the hooding (my husband is 6’4″). I think we are both a little freaked out that he is done since the student loans are now due and the job market is more barren than I am (what, too soon?). Anywhoodle, my mom already told Facebook that she can now say “my son-in-law the lawyer,” so I think it is safe to say our parents are thrilled. I’m glad we are done with the school part, but the bar is scary.
Also, can I get a high five for defying the odds and staying married through law school? If we listened to the statistics, we’d be divorced 3 times over already.
In other news, the mail today was AWESOME!
I won a give away from Running Like a Girl! I got a Kate Spade bracelet and some gummy candy. That candy isn’t gonna survive the night at the rate I’m going because it tastes SO GOOD!
Also in the mail a $25 reward certificate for my favorite running store, Fleet Feet Columbus, and:
In other exciting news, I had my first post-half run with MIT on Saturday and it was glorious, but really hard. How did I run 13.1 miles at once and then forget how to run 2? It was great to see everyone and there are lots of new faces. I think my goal is to talk to at least 2 new people every week until I know them all. After MIT I had a spontaneous breakfast with a few people, which was really fun. I’m quickly realizing that my running friends are my closest friends (that includes you, Sara F!). It really is quite the bonding experience.
I also did 2 miles this morning in a lightning storm. I am finally at the point of having no common sense, which means I’m ready for my PhD. It was an ok run, but I went out way too hard and paid for it later. I did manage to sprint the last 0.1, but it knocked the wind out of me.
In other running news, I’m running a 5K for homeless pets this weekend. If you are interested in donating, my fund raising page is HERE. Thanks for your consideration! I’m running in honor of Chester, who found a home with my MIL this morning! Yay!
Alright, I’m off to drink some dirt tea (I walked through a lawn this morning and realized it smelled identical to the tea) and eat some ice cream.
What did you do this weekend? I’m still catching up on blogs. Anyone else find random undergarments? Anything exciting in your mailbox?
