Back to the grind

Oh man, what a week....

Just let me give you a brief run down....

I had 14 400-word articles due for one of my jobs and a 1,250 word article due this morning.

On Monday, I left Tulsa at 6:40 a.m. and stayed in Stillwater until 7 p.m. I got back home around 8:30 p.m.

On Tuesday, I left my apartment at 8:15 a.m. (although I am going to start leaving at 6:40 a.m.) and jumped on a bus at OSU's Tulsa campus at 9 a.m. and rode the bus to Stillwater. I only had to be there for a couple of hours, so I was back home a little after 2 p.m.

On Wednesdays, I would usually leave my apartment around 8:15 a.m. and get back home at 9:20 p.m., but Chase's mom was in the hospital so we went to see her. We left a little after 8 a.m. and got back home around 7:30 p.m.

Yesterday, I left my apartment at 11:45 a.m., jumped on a bus at 12 p.m. and got back home by 7:30 p.m.

This commuting thing is going to get old very quickly, but luckily it's only for a few months! Every free moment was spent writing and I felt "go, go, go" all week. I asked Chase a couple of weeks ago when things were going to slow down and he replied that they probably wouldn't. He was so right.

It is probably going to take me a few weeks to get adjusted to everything — I love living in Tulsa, but every time I leave Stillwater, I drive by my old apartment and I can't help but think, "I would already be home!"

But, oh well. Today has been spend finishing the article, drinking coffee, watching daytime TV and I just baked an original pound cake —one pound of butter, one pound of sugar and one pound of flour. Yikes! It's good, but the texture isn't quite like a pound cake.

Tomorrow, I have to go back to Stillwater for a class, but Sunday, I plan on relaxing and grilling with my husband! :)

Have a great weekend everyone!
