I was reading a friend’s blog entry earlier this morning. Betty wrote so well about the joys of life. Way too often we try to find the happiness elsewhere when we already have it in our hands, or we take too many things granted.
Our Sunday has been a good one – overall, it has been a great weekend. I let J and Tassu to sleep in, was working on my Psychology homework and research project when it was still dark outside and quiet in the house. My research paper on Traumatic Brain Injuries is getting longer and longer; the minimum for the paper is 8 pages, and I am approaching 20 pages of text, without references and other formalities. I also finished another homework of Learning and Cognition – online quizzes were slightly trickier this time but results were (surprisingly) very good. I can’t stop thinking how lucky and blessed I am for having an opportunity to continue studying, and pursue another degree in the field that truly fascinates me. Even better though that J is supporting me 150% – no matter what. Sometime last week he came home with some new books. The library on post was giving out books from their collection, and he stopped by and collected all the psychology ones that I might be interested in.
J will be in the field training this week, so afternoon went by packing his gear – once again. And as always before his longer trainings, I baked peanut butter cookies for him and his troops. Baking cookies has become a habit that I can’t get rid of; and on the other hand don’t want to. I am sure he and his troops agree!
Also, our good friend Steve stopped by in the evening, and we cooked Jaegar schnitzel with mashed potatoes, mushroom sauce. It was a delicious dinner, yet so easy to make.
But over and out from the last frontier for now! More updates will follow when I get bored without having J around, and our dog is driving me nuts by crying at the front door and waiting for his best pal to come back home.
