After almost a month of winter break, Carson goes back to school this week. He's in his last semester of grad school, so I'll be lucky if I ever see him! He's done a lot of studying on his own time this break, but it was great to have time with him to relax, too. My schedule is never the same, so over the break we sometimes had mornings together, but we mostly got afternoons and evenings, plus those super special times where Carson took me on that two-minute drive to work at 5am... not sure that counts as quality time though.
On the last day of school, we went to Sonic to celebrate, just like we did for the first day of school (we love Sonic and wish it were as close to us as it was in Spokane!)
I looked through the pictures I have from his break, and few of them are of things we did... since I don't take pictures when we watch movies or go to Target.
One thing Carson did get to do on break though?
He got a bad cold/sort-of-a-stomach-bug (he didn't throw up but he did feel bad) after we got back from Pennsylvania, which meant that he slept on the couch to avoid waking me up in the middle of the night. After he felt better, he got sick again, so he's gotten some quality napping time in. We spent New Year's Day just relaxing, and I know you can't tell from the pictures, but he felt pretty crappy on New Year's Eve.
We also ate. This masterpiece is from Melt. It's a macaroni and cheese grilled cheese sandwich, Melt's special for the month of December. Friends of ours raved about it, so we picked it up one Sunday and brought it home to share... good thing too, because that's a LOT of cheese. They have the special one day each July for a "Christmas in July" special too.
Oh, and we both got new slippers and PJs for Christmas (technically, mine are from the after-Christmas sale rack), so the break time has allowed for a lot of time wearing fleecey pajamas and warm slippers.
