Edda did go back to school today, but she still seemed a bit wobbly. Because I had finals and wouldn’t be able to pick Edda up if she couldn’t last the day, Jeremy worked from home. The change of the au pair room into his study is complete (almost). It has even a Maxi-resting chair in there and last night, when Jeremy couldn’t sleep because his mind was swirling with work crap, he started work at 3:30 am. Crazy. My husband loves to think about his work during non-work hours.
Maxi has a whole new life now, she sleeps with Vince at night and not us anymore and she hangs out in the room she’s never been allowed in her whole life. I just hope she’s not peeing everywhere.
School has been so relaxed for me this term, many weeks I barely knew I was in school. I will say the first two years were stressful for me (this is my third year out of four), I was carrying too many classes and the classes were way more work than I wanted them to be, I was blindsided. And then I volunteered to do too much tutoring/teaching. Anyways – this term, I didn’t make any close friends, I didn’t do any extra work, I didn’t work weekends, I studied so little for the exams, I put what I considered the minimum amount of work for projects and I just skated through this semester. I’m not sure this was the best tactic, but it’s what I did.
Tonight, Jeremy took me on a date to help Rockville develop a master plan for 2040.
We ended up in the traffic and transportation break out session – it’s a little weird to be talking about buses or whatnot when we all know that we are all going to just call up self-driving cars from our phones by 2040.
