Super Duper vacation

This week was supposed to be bad. As in 8-hour, five day statistics bad. I signed up for a minisession at Super Duper University for statistics. BLAH!!! But it's a three hour credit for five days of torture.

Turns out those five days of torture aren't so bad...

Yesterday, our professor let us out at 11 a.m. (Class was from 8-11 a.m.) Today, class went from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. What's a girl (and her wonderful hubby) supposed to do for the rest of the day?

Anything they want.

Yesterday, we drove a couple of hours to the beach. That's right!! This girl got to go to the beach...and eat fudge...and shrimp...and shop at the outlets...It was amazing. I forgot that I'm actually not supposed to be having fun on this trip!

Today, I'm getting all of my homework done for the week. I'm 2/3 done now. So, to celebrate being 2/3 done with my weekly homework, we're going to watch a movie. Then eat by the lake.

Three hours of doctoral credit never was so sweet.

Wouldn't it be great if we could all take classes that allowed us to spend our free time at the beach. I must make this a requirement if I ever decide to go back and get a master's degree.

That's a tough life. :) I've taken several 1-week 3-credit course and loved them!

Congrats on the running endeavour...you won't be sorry. (well, actually you will be sorry, often, until the day when you cross the finish line. then you won't be.)
