I'm officially DONE with my first semester of grad school!

Sorry for the brief hiatus I had to take to study and write my paper, but now I'm back! I took my final Monday night and I think I did pretty well. Except I'm almost positive I got a few copyright law questions wrong, because I always do. Blah.

And I turned in my final paper online yesterday. I reread it a dozen times, made changes and tweaks, had Chris read it, I reread it again, and finally, I decided I was finished with it. It was as good as I could possibly make it and it wasn't going to get any better, so I turned it in.

I spent most of my weekend studying. On Sunday we went to my parents' house for my mom's birthday dinner (which she cooked). It was fun. Chris got a glimpse of what Christmas Eve will be like. Organized chaos in my opinion. Everyone yelling and talking over each other. Oh and wine. There's always wine. :)

I only ran once last week. Finals kind of took over all my spare time. Now that I'm finished and have a full month off of school, I plan to start running again after work. Or maybe on my lunch breaks. And I get to start reading books for fun! Yay! I can't wait to finish Les Miserables.

And now for my most important news of all: We're getting a puppy! On December 23 if everything goes well at her vet appointment on the 21. It will be a chocolate labradoodle. But it's more lab than poodle. So it will have short hair and shouldn't shed much, but since it's more lab, we don't have to worry about grooming or anything. 

This may not be the exact puppy we get, but she'll look like this. 
Yay for puppies! And being finished with my first semester of grad school! Have a good one!
