April Scenes

I couldn’t quite get it together to look through my weekend pics last night.  It was our first weekend sans school pressure in nearly three years and so we made the most of our time together.  But interestingly we weren’t quite in sync (yet).  Our sleep schedule has been off for some time and so when we actually went to bed at the same time, it kind of threw me off.  Neither one of us slept all that well; especially with our little kitty waking us up periodically too.  It was a funky weekend weather wise too.  It rained and rained on Saturday and didn’t quit until early Sunday morning.  I love spring storms though; the lightening and thunder were strangely comforting.

We did start off great though.  Thursday evening we went for a nice long walk to the grocery store, and the hubs literally stopped to smell all the roses in bloom.  Plus, we got cake to celebrate our new freedom.  Friday night we finally used a coupon for Alamo Drafthouse.  So fun.  Dinner and a movie in one place; the food was pretty good, but better yet, I had wine with my flick.  And the servers really were discrete and didn’t disturb the movie at all.

Saturday I had to mentally prepare myself to go to… the mall.  I am looking for the perfect walk-all-day-in-the-city-shoe.  No luck yet.  (More on that later, I’m sure.) While we were inside it’s started pouring and didn’t let up.  It rained so much that we ended up having to cancel dinner plans with friends; so instead we watched a movie and cooked at home…all while it stormed.  All that rain made for a beautiful sunrise/moon-set on Sunday morning.  And then we finally made our way to the hubs’ studio to clean out his space… for good!  It still feels surreal.

This new life is going to take some getting used to for sure.

The hubs stayed buried under model making supplies.  When I picked him up from his studio on Friday, I hardly recognized the space… it was a disaster!!  I could literally feel the pressure cooking in that building.  (I don’t miss finals!)  He will have to have pencils down this Sunday night.  Basically his entire week will look like this.  (And I’m sure next weekend will look eerily similar this this weekend.)  I wondered why I couldn’t seem to get enough sleep this weekend and then I remember that I had been working 10+ hour days last week (I even worked on a Friday!!!) and I’ve just got until Tuesday to keep it up.  (This is a reminder, file your tax extension rather than calling an accountant in a panic today!)  The weather was just wonderful — especially in the evening.  Texas in the Spring really is marvelous.  Friday found me on steps with a glass a wine (in our new cups!) and Saturday night we grilled (again), and Sunday I went for a run.  The trees in our neighborhood are wonderful, and this time of year everything is so fragrant.  It was just the rest I needed to deal with the craziness that awaits me at my office this week!
