This Open Thread is Taking the Weekend Off

Happy weekend everyone!

Never fear, our usual Saturday recaps will be coming to you on Monday. In the meantime, make sure you remember to cast your votes in all of the Middlemarch Madness polls since the first round will be closing Saturday afternoon.

And of course, Happy Pi Day!

So much for a lazy weekend! Had to get up early yesterday for the kiddo’s soccer practice and then she played outside with the neighbors for like 3 hours in the afternoon. I stayed out for most of it, but eventually got cold and came in. (I love that she plays with kids who are much older and can be trusted to keep an eye on her!) My mother-in-law’s dog also decided to take me on a nice long walk. Then today we did pretty much veg all morning, but then we went and rode in a firetruck in one of the local St. Patrick’s Day parades. Sleepy now, but have editing to do after dinner.

Good things that happened this week:

I finished most of my grad school application (just waiting on the GRE, which is scheduled for next month) AND they waived the application fee because I am broke! YAY! AND I have an appointment next week with Dress for Success so I can get grownup type clothes!

Less good things:

I am broke and couldn’t pay my phone bill, so I have no cell phone! yeehhhhhhhshit.
