I know it’s not technically summer yet, but you guys I have some exciting news to share: MY HUSBAND IS TAKING A BREAK FROM LAW SCHOOL (for the summer only)!!!
I haven’t had a free summer with my dude in two years! That probably doesn’t sound like all that long, but summer semesters anytime you’re in college are rough. That ish is condensed and you have no life. Though one year,
many years ago, I took Public Speaking over the summer and that was the best decision of my life; got that God-awful class over with in eight weeks, instead of sixteen…I digress. Add a full-time job, house, and the fact that it is law school to the mix, and I pretty much never saw my husband.
Initially, I did not agree with Mr. Crews taking a break from school. We have quite the student loan debt, and this will cause him to graduate next December, instead of next May. But he needs a break. Our marriage needs him to take a break. And our home that we bought last summer needs some real love. Last year, the week we closed on our home was the same week the summer semester started. It was not a pretty sight, my friends.
I have a bucket list full of summer activities for us to enjoy (and a separate list full of many, many house projects – yay!). The first “summer” event we get to attend together is next week’s Brews With Attitude at the Pepin Distributing Company. I received a pair of tickets through the Tampa Bay Bloggers, and usually I would make a mental list of friends that I think could attend something as fun as this with me, but this time I don’t have to. I get to take my husband, hang with fellow blog friends and enjoy the night!
