"Help! Help! I'm being oppressed!" - quote from Monty Python and the Holy Grail (1975)
This is my favorite quote from that movie, and that's saying a lot since it is one of my all-time favorite movies (I must admit that the British sense of humour really appeals to me). During grad school I actually hung this above my desk for awhile. I was not feeling the love from my grad program at that time, to say the least. I am feeling a bit oppressed this week with all the work I need to catch up on (although not nearly to the same extent). I have to turn in some tenure-related materials by Monday, so I've been slaving away at that, while trying to keep up with classes and get some writing and research done. Whew!
Last week I didn't get much done because my parents were visiting and the hubby and I celebrated our 4-year anniversary. It was all quite fun! We went to Laguna beach on Labor Day, which was lovely, and then hung out and tried to stay cool for the rest of the week (temps hit 100 early in the week).
The hubby came home yesterday and said that someone at work told him that marriage goes downhill fast after five years. At least we still have one good year left! ;) I promise that there will be actual knitting in my next post, but in honor of our anniversary I thought I'd post a wedding photo (one without the hubby, since that might embarrass him; he's quite camera shy). This is a digital photo taken by a friend, so the color of my flowers didn't turn out quite right (they were actually deep burgundy). I can't believe it's already been four years!
