^^running errands on a warm Fall day^^
It is getting to the point of the semester where everything is a tad bit overwhelming. School assignments and tests are more intense and the pressure of finals is already hovering over me. I recently took on a part-time job at the school and I also work retail at GAP as well as manage their events team. You could say things are pretty busy around here and time to do things is hard to find. I also have a ton of things I want to create, bake, and blog about but I have found that I need to prioritize or my life will get even more stressful (notice "weekend treat" hasn't been posted).
On Thursday, I was surprised to find out I was not needed at my office and asked to take the day off. This couldn't have come at a more perfect time. I had a ton of errands to run and different tasks that needed to be completed. The best part of it all was Scott was free during the day as well and was able to do every errand and task with me. It has been a very long time where its just been us and a chunk of time to spend with each other. Ya, we see each other a lot but we are with other people, or doing homework, or distracted by other things. Thursday was a day filled with just us. We spent hours in the car, driving all over the place. We walked through a ton of stores, returning things, searching for things, and picking up things. We also were able to grab a sit down brunch that was also a treat in itself. Our day wasn't anything special but it turned out to be one of the best days!
I am so grateful for that Scott McGrath. I love the feeling I get by just being around him. I love how hard he works and the amount of effort he puts into school and work. I love that I try not to laugh at him or his jokes, but I can't because he really is funny. I love how happy he makes me. I love that I am his wife and he is my husband and that we are a team. My productive Thursday was just what the doctor ordered. I was able to get a ton of things done and I got to spend the whole day with my husband. It rejuvenated me. I'm ready for whatever the rest of the semester has in store.
