Yay weekends. I spent 4 hours last night doing a 1000-piece puzzle with Cory. We finished it up tonight in another hour or two. Every once in awhile I get a puzzle craving - the last time we did one was in Seattle at Thanksgiving. I think there should be puzzle swaps though - it's fun to do a puzzle once but then you want a change of scenery next time. So I have a puzzle if anyone wants to trade.

We also went to get Cory his textbooks. Last year his books cost around $400, and this time they were something like $150 with a gift card Cory finally remembered to use. Much better. Next term it'll be even less, I think. Next term is really fall term (hopefully), and it gives me a little knot in my stomach to think that he's almost done and we're hurtling towards the finish line. It's exciting, but kind of scary too since we don't know where we'll be or what we'll be doing.

Tomorrow should include a walk. I'll have to see what I can do.

The cost of books is ridiculous. I spent over $1000 this semester for books that I am keeping through graduate school (comprehensive exams are no joke) but OMG I am trying like hell to find those small $100-$500 scholarships that I gleefully overlooked during undergrad. Every little bit helps!

It's horrible how much debt people get in to just for a degree. Sheesh. I kind of laughed when I saw Cory's puny little $75 gift card but that pays for a lot of food!
