Mostly because I'm just ready for the semester to be over, but in order to get there I have to wade through a lot of stuff. I get one thing done and there are at least three more waiting to be finished! Like today, for example. I turned in my paperwork to petition to get into the college of ed, but I still have a gallery review to write, a Chuck Close drawing to imitate, a sculpture interpretation of a drawing to start, an essay about what drawing a human figure means to me and a stats sheet to fill out.
And since I was gone last weekend for the funeral I do have some work to make up. And now I'm going to be gone this weekend for my cousin's wedding! Talk about a range of emotions. It's a good thing I don't have anything to do next weekend, or I'd never finish all this school work!!
Tonight I'm at home, listening to my siblings bicker about a video game. I just polished off a bowl of ice cream. Delish. The only thing missing is Prince ;)
Tomorrow Dad said Reveille was o'dark thirty. I don't know if I really want to get up that early, but I did get to sleep in today because I didn't have class until 12:30. But I do like the anticipation of leaving early in the morning. There's something to be enjoyed about the fast paced grogginess that is early morning traveling. You're tired, but excited. Wide eyes held open with toothpicks. I just love it. Don't you?
And because I love you all so much, here are some pictures from the Memorial Service. It was sad, but happy too, so the pictures are all smiley. It was good to sit and share memories and update family that I don't see a lot about my life.
It's weird though, because I don't see it everyday like my family down in California, but today I had to tell one of my teachers that I had been out of town for a funeral and I caught my voice cracking a little bit.
I still have a hard time believing that it actually happened, you know?
Anyway, here are the pictures! :)
(all the cousins and their kiddos)

(L to R: DP, TheMechanic, TheKeeper, and me)
(my favorite picture. my cousin is 22 and never to old to sit on daddy's lap)
