Weekend of Homework

This weekend I was to attend a play for my Humanities through the Arts class and I was totally fine with it. Until I got an announcement on our class webpage that when the teacher went to attend the play, that majority of the play would be in French. No big deal... except I know next to nothing when it comes to French. Too bad the teacher still had it required for our class... I was completely dreading it.

Friday came... and after work and quick stop to Tiny Tots, Rob and I were off.

First we stopped at Wingers. I have only been there once and I only ate the popcorn so it was fun to actually eat real food there. Our waitress happened to be one of Rob's old friends and they were able to catch up. She was one of Kacee's friends and she was really a sweetheart. (We plan to miniature golf in the future with her and her husband as well as another friend as his wife.)

The food was super yummy. Besides the french fries. They were BBQ flavored. Eww. Rob and I both hate BBQ flavor.

But after we ate our faces off we slowly made our way to the play. I was dreading it actually.

The first act was alright... slow at times, but kinda funny. But when the second act came... it was HILARIOUS. We were laughing our faces off. We didn't understand much of what they said (there were a few lines here and there in English) but we both a
ctually really enjoyed it.

I recommend going to see Tea With Mint or Lemon? at UVU in the Noorda Blackbox Theater.

We then came home and got all cozy in PJs to relax and watch TV.

Then Saturday came... I was able to get tons and tons of homework done... and then we had to head to the mall to the Woodbury Museum by UVU. Again, for my humanities class. It was actually really smelly. We decided it was vinegar mixed with stinky shoe. And they were in the process of switching the paintings and artwork out with new art. There was like 15 pieces total out.

I was not impressed.

But then it was nice to relax and I fell asleep on Rob's lap while we watched movies.

It was very productive and very relaxed actually.

Now, enjoy a picture of my cute man.


Life as we know it...

Happy St. Patrick's Day everyone! I hope you're wearing green or I'll pinch you.
Just kidding... maybe.

Well its finally spring break from UVU and I've enjoyed a few days off of class. I definitely needed it since I've been so unmotivated to go lately.
I shouldn't drag my feet so much about it and throw such fits... but I do.

I dread going to class, but once I'm there its perfectly fine. I probably just need to grow up.
--I mostly hate going to kickboxing. But I love actually doing it and how much of a workout it is. Definitely the opposite of what I thought it would be since we have gloves, shin guards, and even a mouth guard. Not what I was expecting.--

Rob & I are both doing well. We're just both working like crazy.

Rob's mom's (Janet's) mom passed away last week. I felt really bad for her since she never gets to see her since her mom lived in California. She flew out early the next morning and spent a few days out there. Rob and his brother Scott tried to work out a way for us to drive out there with his dad (Stan), but it just didn't work out. The poor woman had to deal with her mom's death and not have her husband or children around.
I hear she was a great woman and I wish I would have been able to meet her.

[I've really only met relatives on Stan's side of the family. An occasional cousin or two from Janet's, but not much.]

Work has turned out well. I've become much more confident that I can do it.. eventually. In fact, sometimes I get excited to play teacher now. :)

On another note, my mom has found a job! She is working at ATEC with special needs adults (18+) and will eventually be at UVU in the library supervising the group that goes down there. She came home today and said she was exhausted... now she can finally know how I feel. Even though its so fun and rewarding, it definitely takes a ton out of you by the end of the day.

It will be fun for her though to get out of the house more and plus, more income isn't bad at all!

I hate to say anything about marriage anymore. Everyone is always asking when Rob and I will get married. I would love to... very soon. But him, who knows when. He has really brought it up a lot more... in fact he told me the other day, after getting down on one (butt) cheek, that he had an invisible ring for me that he spent his whole life savings on. It was a funny joke but I had to ask when it will really happen.

The topic was avoided, mostly... I don't know if that was a good thing or a bad thing. Maybe he just wants it to be a surprise or maybe he just doesn't want to yet.

I guess I shouldn't be too anxious since Kacee & Mattie will be getting married really soon.

And the funding is almost non-existent for me and Rob.


two classes down.. three to go

Its official... I'm done with Sociology and am waiting for the stupid teacher to put the test in the testing center for Nutrition. Even without studying I doubt I'll have a problem.

It will be nice to have them both out of the way so I can help Rob a whole lot more.
