Today brings Timothy and I one day closer to being done with our Hell Week(s). Four weeks ago we began looking at apartments. This added extra appointments to our already packed schedule, sometimes three or four extra appointments. We also, being social people, kept adding more get-togethers with friends as a way to counteract some of the stress of finding out that we're parents. So we are drawing to the end of our Hell Week(s) and we are thankful. Timothy is nearing the end of his finals. Classes end on Friday, but he has two take home exams due in the following weeks to work on. We're looking forward to some time to just relax (although I'll still be working during Timothy's break).
One way we'll be relaxing is by attending the Lutheran Marriage Retreat held in St. Louis over February 22-24. We will be required to leave life behind for these days and we'll be staying in a hotel, with meals provided. (Read here, no cooking, no cleaning and most importantly, no dishes.) This time will be great for Timothy and I to focus on the two of us before becoming the three of us in August. It's a time we both are looking forward to, although we don't really know what we're getting into with the retreat.
We're also newly addicted to Lost, a television series (somewhat older now) about people who crashed on an island. We're renting the DVDs from the library and watching several episodes in a row. We're close to finishing Season 2 now (of 6 seasons), so look for us to have finished Season 3 by the time Timothy is back in school in March.
