I just returned from 4 days in Florida with Tim. It was great seeing my in-laws and relaxing.
We had a good mix of having fun and doing nothing. We got in midnight Saturday morning and spent Saturday being lazy. Sunday we drove around suburban Tampa and Tim beat me in mini-golf. Monday we visited Tim's brother at Eckerd College in St. Petersburg and had an ocean-side lunch. Tuesday we went to Gainesville to see the University of Florida. It's a great campus and there's bikes and scooters everywhere! I met with two professors who will hopefully put in a good word for me! When we got back from Gainesville, Marilyn had a Thanksgiving dinner ready for us. It was very tasty and nice to have Thanksgiving dinner with them.
Other than that, I soaked in some sun, bathed in the hot tub, and found out I'm really good at Wii!
Some time away from home was just what I needed. I've had a hectic couple of weeks. I got into a car accident (everyone is fine) and the car is totaled. A little time away is just what I needed to regain my spirits. Now amidst the craziness of grad-school applications and finals, I have to buy a new car.
