Today I am just thankful for my life, and that I still have a job.
There were major blindside layoffs at work today.
I think I'll keep paying my tithing. The blessings keep pouring out on us.

A few things.

I got my student teaching placement....Mountain Crest High School. Yay!
I passed the U.S. Government Praxis exam.
I have an unopened Xbox 360 taunting me because I promised not to open it until after finals.
I applied for a few scholarships....crossing my fingers.
We had a great Thanksgiving with Mark's family, and for once Brian didn't win the board game we played.
Our little Christmas tree is up.
I really need to go back to writing my 10 page paper.
Procrastination is my friend, and so is Grace Helbig.

The Thing About Being Busy.

It sure feels nice sometimes. To always have something to do. Plus I feel super productive when I know I'm busy and I also tend to get the most done.
But after getting married I don't like being busy with anything that doesn't really involve Mark. Like school for instance, which is slowly taking over my life as the end of this semester hits.
And when Mark makes dinner for the third night in a row I feel really bad. I'm supposed to make dinner, and I love cooking. Mark hates it, so I should be doing it right? Well right now that doesn't seem to be working out. So Mark cooks and I attempt to make it to the gym, so he ends up doing the dishes too.
It makes me feel so guilty about taking more time away from us in order to go to the gym or go to Hobby Lobby (Which I really need to do because I need more yarn...never thought I would actually use a whole thing of it...).
Mark is so good about it all. He is constantly asking how he can help me get things done, and I feel guilty adding to that list with, "Could you maybe start the laundry?" or "Could you make me some lunch?". This man is wonderful because he is so willing to help me out, but I will not be complaining when life goes back to "normal". And by normal I mean my schedule of the summertime and last semester, when I always had dinner made, we made it to the temple once a week, and my laundry didn't stay out in the living room for two weeks.
I'm a little nervous about the upcoming semester and I'm worried that I will be more busy than I am right now, if that is even possible. Because let's be honest, I'll be spending the majority of my time at a high school somewhere not getting paid to work, just to come home and actually get paid to work. I'm thankful that I have been able to be full time this semester because next I'll be going to part time. I'm also thankful for a husband who is awesome enough to do school and work full time so that I can graduate.
Really though, this week can just be over...well actually just tomorrow. Also, anyone willing to do my take home test from hell for me?
