stressful weekends & sleepy husband logic

This weekend was awful. A-w-f-u-l.

I had to bring my work home all weekend and the tests that I was running kept giving me problems. The tests also gave one of my coworkers problems while she did work at home too, so I had to coordinate with her/our boss via text, email, and phone calls to try to determine what the heck was going on. We didn't reach a resolution so that dark cloud is still hanging over my head.

Then I couldn't even get near completing my tissue engineering homework because I have no idea what is going on in that class. After numerous hours of failed attempts EVERY day of my weekend I finally threw in the towel and accepted that I would be getting pretty much a 0 on this assignment. Luckily, I have one of the most reasonable professors in the universe and she emailed our class saying she was postponing its due date until tomorrow so we can come to office hours today (apparently I wasn't the only one struggling). Now I just need to convince my boss to let me leave work early today to go to her office hours.

Then there was the more packing and moving situation. I love going to the new apartment but with everything else I had going on this weekend it was overwhelming. Plus, when we got there we saw the kitchen light fixture had fallen down and cracked (it was plastic) so now we need to replace it. So irritating.

Finally, to top it all off, we had a rare February thunderstorm last night. We awoke to a massive BOOM around 12:21 am (I looked at my phone when it happened). Jon jumped out of bed and yelled, "WAS THAT A BOMB???" So cute. But the repeated BOOMs the remainder of the night left little sleep to be had.

I just gotta remind myself that life could be so much worse. The silver lining is all this stress/moving is helping my diet along nicely--I am within 5 pounds of my goal!
