I’m pretty tired of all this studying, but I’m still kickin’, and…. I am nearing the end!  In 48 hours I will be all done with my last final!!

It’s been a while so I’ll back track…  I took part on of my chemistry final on Wednesday.  I think I did okay.  I hope I did okay!  Then I came home and dove into part 2, the take-home portion.  I think I did well on that.  There was only one question that really had me scratching my head, and I think I figured it out in the end.

I studied all day on Thursday for stats.  That is the definition of torture!  I took a running break in the middle, and in an effort to postpone my return to stats for as long as possible, I cranked out 13.1 miles (the .1 was just so that I could say I did a half marathon distance!)  That’s the longest I’ve run since the race last month, so that was a confidence booster when I returned to my problem sets.

Rudy helped me study…

I took the stats test yesterday and I think I did well.  There was one question I really didn’t know how to answer, but all the rest, I knew how to do.  I just hope I didn’t make silly calculator mistakes!  As soon as I left my stats final, I came home to work on the biology final.  I had been plugging away at it all week, but I still had the long essay to write.  After dinner yesterday, I finally finished.  My brother, the biology major, was a huge help.  He explained a lot to me that I didn’t understand about RNA and the process of protein synthesis.  Thanks Chris!!

Today I sent in my biology final….12 pages in total!  And then it was a return to chemistry.  Part 3 is on Monday, and then I’m done!  I have 24 more hours to become an expert on Lewis structures and electron configurations (among other things.)

In all of this, I haven’t starved.  I’ll give you a quick rundown…

Spaghetti squash and broccoli slaw “pasta” with artichokes, marinara sauce, and chick peas!

An omelet stuffed with Laughing Cow, steamed broccoli slaw, and tomato, with a baked acorn squash on the side.

Dave enjoying his “North Dakota burritto,” and Jack looking for scraps!

Friday night “polenta pizza” with mozzerella and artichokes.  Mmmm!

Tonight’s protein pancakes with hot apple slices and raisins on top.

Dave took Jack and Rudy to my parents’ house today so they will be taken care of while we are away next week.  I miss them already!  But it’s going to be a whirlwind until we leave.  Between Dave’s birthday tomorrow, my exam on Monday, and packing and cleaning on Tuesday, Wednesday is going to be here before I know it!

I am giving Dave the best birthday present a person can get…I am giving him one more day before crossing over to that next year.  Even though his birthday is tomorrow, we will celebrate on Monday once my head is out of my books.  He’s a good sport!  With a big nor ‘easter coming in any minute now, it looks like we wouldn’t be going out to celebrate tomorrow anyway!  We are battening down the hatches and holing up for the next 24 hours or so.  I’m sorry the Blogger Meet-up had to be canceled because of the storm, but was sad I was going to have to miss it.  I’m excited to meet so many familiar faces in January!

I am calling it a night.  I DVR’ed Elf the other night, so I think that is on the docket.  My brain hurts and needs some mindless fun!

To all of the Boston bloggers and readers, stay warm and stay safe!
