I felt a lot better after my little whine session. You know how sometimes you just need to say something, I mean not just think it, but actually put it into words? That's what I needed.
Last week wasn't much different from normal. We are a person short, but to be honest, most of the time I didn't really notice. I mean, of course we're a lot busier, but I didn't spend my time thinking about the fact that we were a person short. I decided that I had two choices, either whine or shine, so I put on my shine and tried my best to not make others feel how irritated I was. It didn't hurt that I had Friday to look forward to.
Friday...aaaaaah! My mom, brother and I went to Kansas City for the day and ended up having a really great time. Awesome BBQ and frozen custard, a little shopping and just time away from home.
It was great!
I didn't even feel guilty about being gone on what turned out to be a crazy Friday of Dead Week. I should be looking forward to working on my own...no one to deal with! Just four more days and this semester will be nothing but a memory!
I can definitely see a light at the end of the immediate tunnel...although there are longer and darker ones ahead, so I'll just have to get a bigger and brighter flashlight!
