finals week

A typical view, messy dining room table and all.

A typical view, messy dining room table and all.

Grad student life has its perks, but finals week is not one of them. They come but twice a year and while I don’t have to write the papers (thank goodness), Chris has to work ’round the clock reading and writing. He had sixty pages to write this semester and, I gotta say, he handled it super well considering the walking baby trying to touch his computer every two to three minutes and the wife who has neglected to clean the kitchen for…a while.

At 5:00pm today, his second year at YDS will be over, not with a bang but a Kant paper.

We will dutifully celebrate with soul food this evening and then it is imperative we look forward to the summer.

(See what I did there?)
