Thoughts on Life – 4/22/2012 – A quiet weekend
It has been a quiet weekend, the last quiet one until the semester is over. I will have grading to do by this time next weekend, and that push won’t end until I have graded all of it. My dad came up to visit, arriving on Friday and leaving early this morning. We did not do a lot, as we had been so busy all the way up to that point that we could not really plan much of anything. Things have been so busy down there that we hope the quiet weekend was not a disappointment to him. We did get a hold of our realtor and got to go see the house with him. My parents have been a lot of help to us in the whole house hunting process, that it was nice to get him in there. Otherwise, we did a bit of shopping, went out to eat a couple of times, and cooked a couple of meals here.
I just finished up another set of online office hours tonight where no students showed up. Luckily, as we are now in full moving mode, I worked on clearing out some papers and other things that I would not need to move. As well, I did some organizing around my desk to have everything nicely filed and ready to go. We have not done a lot of actual packing yet, but we have been doing some clearing out of things, going through clothes, books, and other things to try and start culling material that is just not worth moving.
My wife is also in full design mode, working through ideas of how we are going to decorate and paint the various rooms. I’m trying to keep up with the practical side of things, getting insurance, utilities, and other necessities together. We are also in full baby preparation mode. We went shopping today and started pricing out the things we were going to need to have for the baby. We also looked at appliances and got a better idea of what we are going to be looking for in that range. So, it was a nice scouting trip all the way around.
Anyway, just wanted to post a short one today, so there you go.
