Home and Family and Love and Hugs

I love home and family and bon fires and long talks....and it was just the type of weekend I was desperately in need of. I will post adorable pictures and what-not later. (now I should be doing my homework)...but I just wanted to say that my weekend ended with the best possible good bye that went like this.

"Ok. Bye. I'm leaving. You can have a hug ANNNND a kiss."
"Both? I'm so lucky! Why can I have both?"
"Because I love you annnd I'm leaving."

Awww. I love you too Julia.

And note, Zack only got a hug.

If only the rest of the world thought that leaving required a hug annnd a kiss, it would be a much happier place....and you would be constantly getting hugs from creepy people, but you win some you loose some.

One more long day......

I have to finish Chapter 4 of my thesis, do about 506 loads of laundry (and make myself put it away), unpack from last weekend's trip, repack, and work from 6pm-3am..... then I am going home for the weekend and I can't wait to be able to relax.

long weekend

after driving for what seems like an eternity this weekend, (3 hrs home, 10 hours to Roanoke, 3.5 hours to Richmond, 12 hours home, 3 hours back to rochester....) I am really looking forward to next weekend, and relaxing at home, playing with Zacks new puppy and just being happy.

Please say a prayer for Adam and all the other boys that are leaving their families.
