I love your kidney post. You are so good to me, even when I do selfish and/or reckless things. Your post inspired mine! I have five finals to get through before our trip consisting of togetherness, sun, cacti, family, food, sleep, exercise, Christmasy goodness, and altogether joy. Just five finals. 

Piece of cake. (Oh, add cake to the above list.)

Also, I love you.

The human kidney. All I have to do before I see you again is dissect and learn as much as possible about the human kidney. I am excited for our time together. I look forward to sleeping in, maybe even with the occasional nap. I look forward to treats. I look forward to exercise. I look forward to you. I just have to get through this kidney first.

Also, I love you.

Today was a fairly busy day. I didn’t end up getting everything done that I wanted to, and that always annoys me. I did get some things done, however, so I am grateful for that. For whatever reason, I am completely wiped. I think my brain has been working overtime for the past three days prepping for tests, and it is saying it needs a break. Maybe tomorrow I will work for two hours and leave it at that–I can take the rest of the day to run some errands, maybe work on presents and ornaments, maybe get a little workout in…do you approve?

On an unrelated note, I purchased some Smart Water (the best of all waters) and have been enjoying it very much. Remember when we made the decision to cut Smart Water from the budget? What a sad day that was.

Also, I love you.

I have loved being married to a person that is not interested in fighting or getting upset about little things. I like that we try to be as peaceful and civil as possible. Oh sure, one of us can get a little fired up at times, but when this happens it seems that the other is able to keep a cool head and calm things down. I guess we could always use more peace though, so how about some meditation?

Also, I love you.Image

Well I am now in full finals mode. I spent the whole day going over evidence. I have two more handouts to note card, then I can put the whole class together and study the crap out of that class. Perhaps the class I should be more concerned about is Constitutional Law II. There is sooooo much information to know, and it’s all closed book so it actually has to be in my head for the exam (and later, for the bar). I have another busy day ahead full of studying and getting other school stuff done.

All that said, it is important to take breaks. Sometimes I worry that you don’t take enough breaks on your long days at school. I just decided I needed a break, so I went outside and practiced double unders for 15 minutes in the freezing cold. I got three in a row, by the way. But a slap by the rope hurts pretty bad when your fingers are frozen!

This is me trying to warm my hands.

Also, I love you.

Another pen you got for me died a little while ago. I am so thankful that you were thinking about me while you were working at the cell phone shop, and that you would bring me pens as gifts. I am pretty sure that you think about me and my needs a lot. You always seem to be thinking about how you can help others, sometimes ignoring your own needs. Thats why I remind you to do things for yourself sometimes. I am glad I married such a thoughtful and selfless person.

Also, I love you.
