That is the longest our little family unit will ever be separated from now until graduation! Ten weeks is the longest we have had to be apart and 2 weeks the shorted. Ten weeks sucks big time, but we won't have to do it anymore. The general amount of time apart is at 3 weeks-3.5 weeks and after 2 years that seems a hell of a lot more manageable. I actually took out a little extra in loans to help pay for flights. It's a bit harder with a baby now. For flights over 7 hours she needs her own seat. And the "child's discount" on airfare is a joke. So Z is going to have tons of travel experience and hopefully become an awesome traveler/flyer so I don't go insane on the planes. We fly tonight and are going to visit Liam in Ireland. We're so excited and I can't wait. I wish most international flights weren't at night. It's taking so long to get there!
Liam and his dad are flying in together just an hour before Z and I arrive. They have the same connection in Adu Dhabi. His father is coming back from a golfing holiday with Liam's friends in Thailand. There was a set of older gents (60+), regular gents (40s) and the youngins (30-40). I can't wait to hear all the stories, but Liam has already said that he told the boys not to tell him about the trip b/c he would tell me b/c he can't keep anything from me. I think it's all a rouse and I'll get all the juicy details out of him!
Finals are right around the corner. I only have 2, which is so nice. I just have 2 short papers to complete and then I'm DONE! Well until summer classes begin...should be interesting to say the least. I'm looking forward to the tax class because I actually liked my Tax course last semester. It will help take the pressure off of me next school year, which is much appreciated. Registration is also happening. I always loved when the course schedule was released in undergrad, it's just a fun now! I'm looking to have all of my classes one day/wk in the fall. I will have class from 9am-10pm, but I only have to do it 11 times. I'm looking forward to it! Then there is only one semester to go. It's all so close...
