long time no news

I'm a boring girl these days. Never thought I'd be looking for more excuses to study, but it's the only way I get to spend any time with Jamey. He is so diligent. As I was laying in bed, alone, the other night (because he was still awake studying) I was so grateful to be married to someone I can admire/respect/want to be like. He is super diligent. He keeps pushing himself and pushing himself to learn/understand/try more. He studies I'd say, on average, 15 hours a day. Definitely atleast 12, sometimes 17! And me, I'd give myself an hour study break for lunch, not him. He just keeps pushing himself and eats his meals infront of his computer. 2 weeks from tomorrow he'll take the test and then he's home free!! YAY! So please everyone, keep him in your prayers as he's doing everything he knows how to succeed that he will have a clear mind and be able to think through all his questions and know the best answers on his 8 HOUR exam. It's gonna be a doozie. But I have complete confidence in him because he knows how to apply himself and how to set goals and accomplish them. I love him.

My wonderful family

It was absolutely fantastic spending 4 full days with my family. I drove to Palmyra, NY on Friday night by myself after class and we met up at the Palmyra Inn at about midnight. They drove from DC, again with a cruel GPS. We spent all of Saturday gallivanting around the town and seeing all there was to see. We spent a solid 2 hours in the Sacred Grove and it was my happiest time I think. I loved being there and sharing that part of my life with them. I wish I had the pictures of Grandma in the off-roading wheelchair but those are on Auntie Lynne's phone. Sunday we went to Church then started the drive home, with a fun detour to Niagara Falls! I can't even say how fun/funny it was to see them all on the Maid of the Mist! And then home sweet home to Ohio. Unfortunately, I had exams to study for so I went to school in the morning to study (skipped classes but studied) and we spent the afternoons together. It was the saddest thing to say goodbye Wednesday morning but I'm glad they spent what time they had with me. I love my family.
