Weekending + 7 years + 9/11

This weekend I...

...graded papers to get ready for the onslaught of questions I will get about midterm reports.

...fixed something with duct tape, as we are at that point in a deployment where shit randomly will begin to break. 4 deployments in, and I'm still not ready for this. 

...watched some TV. I started Supernatural. I already consider this to be a terrible mistake. I foresee nothing getting done for the next 218 episodes. It's not that it's THAT good. It's just good enough to hold my attention. 

...cleaned a little. 

...went to the grocery store and nowhere else and enjoyed that very much. 

Cheers to Monday and a very busy week ahead!


I'm not trying to get super deep here...just a thought I had...

Today is our 7th wedding anniversary and I reflect on this almost every year by remembering September 11th. Our rehearsal dinner was on the 11th, and it's easy to set aside what happened on that day as we go through our day-to-day life. However, it quite literally affects everything Scott and I have ever done or ever will do. He has been deployed for over half of our marriage. It is our reality. While I may not have lost someone on 9/11, I had no idea that it would mean all these things for my future as I sat in drivers' ed when the attacks came on the news on 9/11/01. 



  1. Happy Anniversary to you both! Hope he'll be home soon! I watched Supernatural when I was a teen in high school and loved it for awhile, but then it got to be really weird/freaky type of stuff, so I stopped watching. haha

  2. Happy anniversary!

    I never saw Supernatural but know people who love it. I would possibly watch it.

  3. Happy anniversary!! Isaiah and I were talking about 9/11 yesterday (of course) and thinking how strange it is that we know teenagers now who weren't even born when that happened. Kids in drivers' ed this year don't remember!

  4. Happy anniversary and thank you to your husband!

  5. As we learned in The Martian: "duct tape is magic and should be worshipped."
    I think of military families when I think of September 11, 2001. Because of that day, our military and their loved ones faced a new(ish) enemy.
    Happy anniversary!

  6. happy anniversary :) i think about it as well, and how different our lives would be if KC stayed in the military.

    i used to LOVE supernatural. i don't remember when i stopped watching it, it all got very same same same same. there are some super hilarious parts though, and i did enjoy it. just goes on forever, and my attention span for tv shows is not great.
