I am so ready for this semester to be over. I am tired and exhausted and need a break. I feel like I am like this towards the end of every semester. But for some reason I feel like this one has been more exhausting than others. Maybe it is creating the new cryptography course so that takes up some time. And I feel like I never can get out of the pile of papers I have to be graded. On top of that, I am teaching an online course that starts first of June and I need to have the course content put together and online before then.

Have I mentioned that the lady that watches Piper is preggo and due soon. While that is great for her, for me it would be a nightmare. I am hoping she makes it through 3 more weeks and so Piper has childcare. Otherwise, it becomes pass Piper around to different neighbors for a couple weeks until I am done with school and can watch her. Oh yeah, and then I still have to get that course created! :)

Running has been dragging too. I feel sluggish and horrible. EZ is trying to get to work on my form, and while I feel like I am, I still feel like a mess and run SOOOO heavy on my feet which is the opposite of what I should be doing. I have decided to try the Nike Free's and will be purchasing a pair this weekend and see how that goes.

Piper has been oodles of entertainment lately. She is totally coming in to her own personality. She has decided army crawling is for the birds and has taken to crawling "normal" now but she is still kind of slow at it. She has also learned to play peek-a-boo (or "where's mama") and finds it hysterical. She even takes a blanket and puts it up in front of her to hide herself. In addition she thinks plowing head first onto pillows is very fun too. Lastly, she found that our kitchen stools were the perfect height to use as her walker and she has started to become more bold in letting go of things and will take a step or two every now and then.

Don't have time to post pics or videos right now...more to come.

Course development is very time consuming, especially when you do it RIGHT! Plus, cryptography sounds like a brain-buster of a topic. Once you get everything set up, I bet the online course will be fun.

I hope your child care holds out!
