I have actually read books - fiction! This is an exciting perk of 3rd year I never anticipated. We had a really great relaxing weekend. Saturday, after my donut-eating, movie watching rest time we headed up to Superior CO for the Mile High Chili festival. It was great! For 5 bucks each we got all the chili we could shove in our bellies and 2 free beers. Plus there was a great live band too. It rained a ton for a long time, and it was really cold, but overall it was a great day!

I also read the Time Traveler's Wife. I cried like a baby. I don't think I will watch the movie.

It is really starting to feel like fall, which always seems like the time for starting new things. I know I feel this way because I've been in school for-well- ever. But I think I'd like to try a new hobby. Any ideas?

I have to say a little about the TTW. It is my favorite book, Josh's too, and it was odly a big part of us falling in love and getting married and getting me to move to Chicago. I've read it more times than I can count. I love it.

When we saw the trailer for the movie we both booed and hissed at the tv, and swore to never see it. But curiosity got the best of us and we did see it... and we both really liked it. I wouldn't recommend it ot to anyone who hadn't read the book, but it was surprising. And it made me cry like 70 times.

Yowza, that was some comment. I'm glad you're getting to relax a bit, good luck with your next assignment.

I'm reading TTW right now... I should be through it quickly :)

Everyone I know seems to be knitting... maybe that's the new cross stiching?

I just TTW last month. What a story! I can't decide if I want to see the movie... if you want to take Drea's suggestion and see it, I'll go with you. -Kathryn
