And now for non-sleepy relatedness...
I just wanted to give you an update on my day-to-day life. Can I tell you how nice life is now that THE BAR is done and out of our lives? I say this with love as I know many of you, your spouses, friends, etc. are preparing for this monster at the end of this month. And I wish you the hugest amount of luck and love. It's not easy being the one to take it, but it's not easy being the one to watch your loved one take it either. The silver lining is that it too will pass. I would liken it childbirth, although I can't say from experience. Regarding childirth, that is. But you know how women say that the birthing is so incredibly painful in the moment and then the memory of the pain fades with time? Well, I think it's like the bar, except without the newborn infant to care for after.

I'm beyond happy with this new stage. After all the chaos of school and the bar, I'll take a little normal - hell even boring - for awhile. Now how can I quiet my screaming uterus long enough to enjoy this calm?
