I can't believe I'm saying this but, I am very ready to go back to school. I know I'll be complaining shortly, and I can already feel the deadlines looming and late night paper writing marathons are on the horizon but after a month off, I'd rather be busy than sitting at home. Thankfully, I'll be back in classes next week, and my course-load plus two upcoming conferences will quickly leave me longing for days spent doing nothing. But that's the way it always is, isn't it?
Thursday my love and I are leaving on a long-awaited weekend trip, and I (really, really, really) can't wait. We haven't spent much time together during the holidays, so we'll finally have a few days with nothing but each other's company. We'll be staying at a charming bed & breakfast in a small town about three hours away, and I foresee a lot of cuddling, dinners by the fireplace, snow fights and bubble baths.
It will be both a perfect start to the new year, and a relaxing re-entry into the chaos that will ensue next week.
