I got the results from my mid-term on Tuesday, and I received a 90%. I was overjoyed, and felt much more at ease. Thanks to all of you who have been praying for me!! Now I have to finish a book on teaching that seems to me like the longest one in history. I have been trying to read it for about two hours but keep nodding off. I have read about 50 pages, though, so I'm getting somewhere at least.
Jake and I are excited for next week-end. A friend of mine blessed us with the opportunity to stay over at a local hotel. She had a complimentary night's stay, including a breakfast for two, and hadn't had a chance to use it in the past year. Since it expires on April 1 and she is going away, she thought we might like to use it. I can't wait, eager to be able to have this mini-retreat to look forward to (even if it's only five blocks away!) I need to set some goals for myself so that I will have most of my homework done by then :)
This is what I have been dreaming about for the past two days, ever since Jake and I went to a local restaurant for dinner. We ordered a piece of chocolate cake to split for dessert, and were immensely pleased (not to mention our chocolate appetites were more than satiated). You'll never get a better piece of cake anywhere. I promise you.
Enjoy the sunshine, and go find a piece of cake. Just do it.
