Three Things Thursday

1.  The fire alarm went off at 3am this morning.  At first I thought it was the alarm going off on Patrick's phone, then I realized it wasn't.  Talk about freaking scary.  Poor Patrick had no clue what was going on and was flailing everywhere.  And I must say that it's really hard to see when you have this bright strobe light flashing through the darkness.  I'm not sure what set it off because there wasn't actually a fire (probably just someone 3am).  Anyway, that is an experience I would not like to repeat.

2.  Patrick graduates on Saturday and that means packing up this apartment!  While I'm excited that we're heading back to NH for the summer, I am also not looking forward to the fact that I have to do a lot of this packing myself.  Patrick is still student teaching so he's gone all day and we've go to be out of here by 5pm on Friday.  That doesn't leave much time.  Yikes!

3. I'm starting to feel like once I get home I will be pulled in a million directions to do a million different things.  There's work, and triathlon training, wedding stuff, birthday parties, starting my thesis and appointments.  I hoping I still have some time for myself somewhere in there!

Happy Thursday!


  1. bummer about the fire alarm, but good there wasnt a real fire.

    i hate packing...but the worst part is unpacking and trying to figure out where everything needs to go and then wodnering why in the hell this item made it into the KEEP pile...

    i hope you find time too!

  2. Yuck to fire alarms.

    Congrats to Patrick graduating! Have fun packing, girl! :)

  3. Congrats to Patrick!

    Sounds like you have a super busy and exciting summer ahead. :)

  4. Ugh! I hate when fire alarms go off in the middle of the night- I am not a fan of being woken up especially for no reason!
    I hear you about being pulled in a million different directions- wedding planning seems to have that effect on us!
