Up in the Hills and back down again

Yesterday we got back from Hocking Hills after an awesome four day trip. It wasn't our normal, annual trip as we were there to celebrate the wedding of our friends, Jason and Diana. And what a wedding it was. Complete with a full vegetarian menu, five kegs of micro brew beer, outdoor ceremony, a killer band, and costumes. That's right, I said costumes. Jason's family is big on dressing up, so there were over one hundred different costumes and combinations of costumes for the attendees to wear. Led by some of my craziest friends, we danced for almost four hours straight; all dressed in the wildest ways. It was definitely a party for the record books. If you're on the book of faces, check out Ell's page for some pictures.

And now we're home and back to the grind. Starting an hour after we got home Sunday afternoon through the next 96 hours, Ell will spend 66 of them either in school, at work, or at her hospital practicum. In a total of ten days she will average 19 hours per day doing the same. That leaves 5 hours a day to sleep, eat, drive, and study. If I haven't mentioned it before, I have mad respect for that woman. I dare anyone to try and see if they could keep up with her or work as hard as her. (I know, I know, mothers work hard. But even the busiest mothers still get to sit down for a meal now and then; not live on pretzels and water while driving from one job to another after sleeping a half hour at a time in the back seat of a car.) Mad, mad, respect for her. That's for sure.

And mothers don't get fired for locking their 'patients' in a closet! Crazy schedule!

Sounds like a real party!

Did you take pictures at the wedding? Sounds fun!

I hope Ell's week goes by fast and that she is able to sneak in a few hours of rest.

Ell has some shots on her Facebook, if you do that. (I don't. Sorry.)
