Hooray, Kris is officially well!!!

Kris had his last doctor's appointment today to get stitches out. Dr. Copeland told Kris he never wanted to see him again. (I think he meant that in the nicest way possible though). That's exciting. I'm heading home this weekend to attend a wedding and Kris and I are going to take our engagement pictures. Hooray! This should be fun. Fortunately his mom's pretty handy with a camera (she always wins a prize at the Natches Trace Festival for her photography), so we don't have to pay an arm and a leg for them.

Right now life is a balance between school and wedding. The wedding was on the back burner, but since it's just a few weeks away - and I know this because I keep getting annoying little reminder e-mails from the and various other places - it's become a priority. When staring at the brain in neuro lab today all I could think about was what I needed to wear for my pictures. What about the florist? What about the diamond that fell out of my ring last week? It's enough to drive a girl crazy.

You know what else can drive a girl crazy? A cumulative physiology final with 167 questions on it (that's 50 pages thick, y'all!!!). It was ridiculous. We had it Friday. We were supposed to be given 4 hours to take the thing, but we got started 15 minutes late and ended 10 minutes early. Then as we're all rushing to finish, the teacher comes in and tells us he'll give us 30 minutes. So really they gave us 5. But at that point we were all so freaked out that none of us could think straight. I even forgot equations. I never forget equations!!! Anyway, we got the thing back today and the class average was 79. That makes me feel not so bad about my 76. I'm usually 5-10 points under class average, so 3 under is actually an improvement. I can justify anything really.

Must study neuro now. It's bizarre and hard to remember. Oh goody.
