Now that my sister is married, Steve and I are starting to get back to our normal life. This week seemed a little hectic still, at least until we got to the weekend.
Work has been a little more stressful lately than I would like. However, I am working on separating my work life from my personal life, so I'm not going to go any farther on that in my blog. I did take my students on a fun fieldtrip on Friday to the University of Wisconsin in Whitewater, and that was enjoyable.
Relay For Life is moving right along. Steve and I went to a goals setting meeting Thursday night with my co-chair, Kathryn, and our team development chair, Patty. It was a pretty effective meeting, so that was a nice use of time. Plus, we got a some free stuff to take back to our committee members, which is always fun.
I got my haircut this week. That may sound a little miniscule, but it was huge for me. I hadn't had it cut so that it would be a little longer for the wedding (that way I could get an up-do). So it was so nice to have it cut off again and be easy to do AND nice looking. I'm very happy.
Our weekend was definitely the highlight. Friday night, we made dinner and watched TV while relaxing on the couch. I love when Steve grills steaks, so I was pretty happy. Saturday, we went to a wedding celebration (the wedding was in June) for some family friends. It was nice to have a low-key party! Then, we headed out to DeKalb for NIU Homecoming. The Huskies won, but we didn't go to the game (we were at the party). We met up with TJ, Tim, Melissa, Eddie, and Delena at Stanley's to see the Footstompers play. It was a pretty fun night despite the soaking rain.
Steve's 10-year high school reunion was also Saturday night. We didn't go. Steve wasn't too excited or motivated to go, and we didn't feel like spending $150 to go to Sluggers. He did get a phone call from his friend Tina. Other than that, we still have to hear the full report from Phil about what we missed.
Today has been a wonderful Sunday. Steve is relaxing on the couch watching TV; I'm grading papers and updating blogs. We don't have to be anywhere or see anyone. It's our ideal way to spend the day.
So that was this week. Here are a few pictures from Stanleys! GO NIU!
