Three times a year the Ross Vet School community gets to experience that most special occasion known as “finals week.” You would think this only affects the students, but it does, in fact, have a way of spilling over into the rest of the spouse and family community.
Thus, my lack of a Monday post. (Or at least I can blame it on the Mister, anyway.)
But, really, things are getting pretty hectic around here with the Mister rushing back and forth between the house, campus and various group study sessions and leaving his notes and materials strewn about the house like so many Easter eggs.
Exams start next week but this week has lab finals and all the last-minute study stress that the end of a semester always brings with it. Hopefully by the end of next week we’ll all be fourth semester students and one step closer to being halfway done with this island.
Then we’ll get a week of peaceful rest and another week of island exploration with the Mister’s parents, who are coming to visit at the end of April. We’ve got all sorts of things planned, including a sugar mill hike, a tour of Brimstone Fortress, a day trip to Nevis and possibly a deep-sea fishing expedition. Should be blog-worthy by the time we’re all done.
The crochet creations business is doing well and I’m pleased with the results I’ve been getting. Now if only I could round up those pesky monkeys in the garden and turn them into an army of crochet minions I’d be cranking orders out like a Chinese sweat shop. As it is, it’s just me, crocheting frantically in my own little Kittitian sweat shop… but at least it keeps me busy.
Now to sit on the porch, make a turtle and watch the golf carts flee to safety as the rain rolls in off the ocean. Run, little golfers, run!
