Moock Travel

Last night we cashed in some of our Christmas and birthday gifts and enjoyed dinner at Red Lobster in Ames, IA. Everything was delicious (Brian loves the Lobsterfest) but when we got back on the road the wind gave us a bit of a headache. There was lots of patchy ice but we made it safe and sound into Owatonna. We probably saw 100 cars and semi's off the interstate between our house and the hotel but we're not sure how long some have been there.

Today we're going to Medford to look at some outdoor gear and then we'll drive into Minneapolis. It's nice having time to relax and talk. We both had very funny dreams last night so we're wondering if its the room or the fatigue, or maybe the Red Lobster.

And then...

as the couple was approaching their six month wedding anniversary, they went on their honeymoon =)

Brian and I will be leaving tomrorow at noon for almost a week in Minneapolis and the surrounding area. We will shop, eat at our favorite restaurants, try some new things, sleep in and enjoy a week alone. We both have to do homework while we're there but we're still looking forward to getting away =)

Things are still incredibly busy, we're hoping for improvements in our schedule with the next term at school but no promises. We're starting to make plans for spring break so if you're going to be around Lincoln we would love to see you. We're trying hard to spend time with all of the wedding party during that week and a half. Hopefully we can find something really fun to do!

I am surviving my speech class, but just barely.... and I'm only crying about it twice a week now, so that's an improvement. I think that hopes for my 4.0 this term may be dashed against the rocks, but I'll pass!

Sometimes Life Isn't Fair

Oh the immortal words of my grandmother. As I have whined about before I am taking a difficult math class and an EVIL speech class. That is truly the only "clean" word that I can use to describe it. My teacher is unreasonable at best and despite the fact that I'm doing everything that I can think of to look at things from her side and to be the good student I have historically been she is wearing me down.... I knew prior to beginning the class that I would either have to be available to speak in front of the class OR that I would have to arrange my own audience and AV equipment for my presentation. I have made all efforts to compromise with her but to no avail.... so now I have to decide if I can round up 10 people over the age of 18 to get together this weekend long enough to record my presentation. UGGGHHHHH!!!!!
