Break out “Pomp and Circumstance”

Tonight, our house proudly holds a recent college graduate. Though he opted not to walk in the graduation ceremony tomorrow afternoon, my parents and I are compensating by throwing a big graduation bash for Mitch, complete with burgers grilled on the back patio and a giant homemade cake.

Sandwiched in there between Good Friday and Easter is a feast to celebrate this freedom, the one that allows Mitch evenings free from deadlines and projects, that gives him the time to pursue (for once) things outside his area of study. He can take up hobbies! He can read books, just for fun! He no longer has to ration out the few spare minutes between study sessions.

Right now, though, he’s putting his college education to work setting up our brand-new bed frame. It’s proving more difficult than he anticipated.

    Good work, Mitch! and I hope your bed came together easily – I love assembling furniture, although the finished products are sometimes a bit wanting.

    The bed looks pretty darn slick, I must say. Now we just need a mattress to fit it and then we’re all set!

    Also, the party was absurdly fun. It’s 7:30 and I am ready for bed.
