My big news is I finished my church history paper yesterday and got it turned in with 10 minutes to spare. Whew! I just hope it is adequate. And now I am exhausted.

In other news, Molly saw her doc. yesterday and had her meds. changed. We hope that won't be too disruptive, but we also hope it will be really effective. She had an odd experience at work today. Check out [ profile] theofem's journal for the full account. Molly's birthday is Monday :) I haven't thought of a great gift yet, but we'd like to go out to Buco de Beppo again. Unfortunately, Monday I have class until 9:30 and Molly works until 10. So it will have to be another night.

Our 1 year anniversary is October 31. And yes, I have class until 9:30 and Molly works until 10. So that also will have to be celebrated another night. I'm excited we've been "together" a year now. So much has changed . . .

We've watched a few films lately at home. We saw Serenity in the theater a few weeks ago, and we watched the series Firefly in the weeks before the movie came out. The movie seemed more violent than the series, but it was good. I like the music in the series and in the movie.

Mostly we've been watching movies at home. Lately we've seen Yentl, Better than Chocolate (which we loved), D.E.B.S. (Jordana Brewster is very cute in this movie!), Beetle Juice, The Motorcycle Diaries, and Amelie. (I haven't posted in a while!) We relax with movies (and computers) a lot. We belong to one of those online movie rental things.

Other than that school has been keeping me busy. The last few weeks have been tough, with all the papers. The next ones aren't due until November (don't tell me that is just a few weeks away). I'm enjoying my classes, but I lack much of a sense of direction these days, which is frustration. Plus Molly's anxieties have been stressful all around. Hopefully things are looking up!

We've been filling up on movie goodness lately. It's been too hot to do much outside, and my shoulder hurts too much to do a lot of things. Friday night Becca came over, played with the kitties, and we watched In & Out because it is one of Becca's favorite movies. It was funny, but it made me think some, too. Saturday Molly worked most of the day, but she brought home Maverick, which was quite funny. Today we went to church because Molly was leading children's summer Sunday school for the two children who showed up. We listened to Bible stories and colored pictures :) We stopped at Blockbuster for some movies (we had a coupon) and rented Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, which we haven't watched yet, and Stone Reader. Stone Reader is about a man who tracks down the author of a book he read. It was really great for me because it had a whole section on Iowa (where the author lived) and Iowa City (where the author had been in the Iowa Writer's Workshop). Sections were shot in Iowa City at the University of Iowa and in the downtown at Prairie Lights, my favorite bookstore. Several parts take place in the University Main Library, where I worked at the time the film was made! It was cool to see people and places I actually know!

I'll get back to finishing my trip report soon, I promise :)
