We have both been counting a lot lately.
Michael is counting down for this:
as for me, I am counting down my client contact hours. (At the end of this month I am up to 266, only 234 left- I'm finally half way!). I am still hoping to walk in December, and hopefully finish my hours a few weeks after that. I met with the supervisor of my thesis yesterday. He said "try to do something every day that takes you a step closer to graduation. So, if you are waiting on clients that don't show up have something for your thesis to work on so it is not just wasted time."
Although the concept is simple and not earth shattering, it was motivating to me. Perhaps the simplicity of just trying to take one step a day seems more managable than a looming goal I feel I can never get to.
We have been busy on the weekends lately with weddings, birthdays, and doing some work in our yard. Michael is already busy preparing for OC's homecoming in November. They cut the funding for a lot of the graduate jobs at school this year. But I just got hired for a few hours a week working for the graduate office starting this Friday. So that will be good.
That is about all that is going on here for now. We are excited about fall, cooler weather, and Michael probably won't be able to sleep the next few nights with OU's season starting on Saturday. (It is pretty much like a child on Christmas Eve). As this blog is titled "our life in pictures" I will post some pictures soon of our trip to Chicago, and some of the other things we have been doing recently. We are doing well, and hope you are too! :)
