The Past Week

Ahh vacation. I spent the first two days getting all the work done that I was behind on because of the trip and a week of oral exams. Then Wednesday I went to the lycee to catch up on more things and now I am really on vacation, though we’re not going anywhere. After all the hectic running around of the past few weeks it feels good just to rest.

Spring has arrived here with thunderstorms, and our grass is getting taller, but our lawnmower is broken. We dropped it off at J’s parents’ last night and are crossing our fingers his dad can fix it before the grass gets unmowable.

And that’s all the boring news of our lives that I can come up with. I’ll try to have something more exciting to say soon.
