Back to School

Well it is that time of year again. Not only is DF back to his dorm room and I have the apartment to myself, but today is my first day of classes for the spring semester. Four more courses and I will have that MBA. Two this semester, two in the summer. Come August, I should be graduating. And then a wedding in September. I have a feeling this is going to be a busy year.

It's been interesting to not only have my own place but to also have it to myself. DF will be spending time here on the weekends, but for now he's back on campus and super busy with what will hopefully be his final semester. Last night I found myself a little restless. I curled up on the couch, lit a candle in the fireplace for mood, turned on a CD...whipped up a batch of waffle batter to put in the fridge for the morning. Just did whatever struck me without worrying about running into people or getting in anyone's way. I am so happy to be back to a roommate free life.

In book news, I read a very satisfying story by Liz Carlyle. Never Deceive a Duke. After a string of so-so reads, I am happy to say that this merits at least an A-. If I have time tonight I may try my hand at a formal review, but for now I'll just say that the characters were well developed and showed growth over the course of the book. And despite some potential for Big Mis behaviour, there was no dreaded long separation to slog through (something that makes me really twitchy). So yay!

Now I need to go pack a lunch and tidy the place up before I go to work.

The best thing I remember about being roommate free was coming home and finding everything the same. No mess, no dirty dishes... The apartment was undisturbed. That was so blissful.

This is the first time I have ever lived alone and I have to say I love it! It is so nice to do whatever you want without worrying about others being in the way, or their stuff being used, ect... Congrats on wrapping up the degree!

I love living alone! This will be a challenge if I ever got married, but for now I'm enjoying it.

Glad you've enjoyed your recent read. SEP has been hit or miss with me as I'm on a binge of her books. Right now, definite hit :)

Oh isn't having your own place wonderful? At least I think it is. I never managed to live on my own. Always had roomates or lived with my hubby before marriage. Enjoy it!

Isn't it nice to be able to relax? I just love Liz Carlye too.
