As some of you may have noticed, I have not been keeping up with the blog very well lately. I have a long list of items to write about, and I will someday soon. But, graduate school and my career have taken over my life. Dimitri says, "When will you stop studying and come play with me?!"

Grad school is sucking the life out of me this semester. Here's what I've been up to lately: attending lots of classes, studying, printing research articles, reading research articles, reading textbooks, reading reference books, grueling over Powerpoint lectures, studying for exams, writing papers, working on projects, working, not sleeping much, and not having a life at all - and I'm only just 4 weeks into the semester. That means I've had no time for grocery store runs, no time for errands, and no time for workouts. Oh, cooking? Seriously, no time for that. Oh, and let's add in the part-time job I have... wait, where is there time in the week for that??? Let's just say that I'm feeling a bit overwhelmed.

I am so incredibly thankful that I have an amazing husband who knows what it is like to be super busy too. Even though he is a resident and is working 80 hours a week, he's helping me out with simple things like going to the grocery store because we don't have any food in the fridge and helping clean the house. He's even cooked many of our recent meals because I simply don't have time! Don't worry, I've been documenting everything and it will pop up soon. If I didn't have 2 term papers to write, an exam to study for, and a couple projects to complete over Spring Break, I could fill you in then. But, blogging might actually have to wait until this semester is over.

This is just a short post to say, I'm sorry it's been a while, and it will probably be a while before you hear from me again. But, stay tuned, because I have some really great recipes to introduce you to and some fun things to catch you up on!

Until then, here's what my life will continue to look like:

At least reading and studying is more bearable with a snuggle kitty in my lap!
