Adjustment (+deals)

Today's the day the tables turn.  Tonight is my first review class for my Professional Engineering exam in April.  Time to switch modes from movie nights to study sessions.  I know it's something we'll work through, but I'm apprehensive how this will affect Ben and I's routine/schedule.

Usually I come home from work, walk the dogs (now dog), and exercise.  When I get back, Ben's usually getting home, I shower and make dinner then we spend the rest of the night doing things around the apartment or watch a movie.

Now that I have an online class 6-9p Mon and Wed, plus oodles of studying to do. The anticipated new schedule is walk Oscar, make dinner, eat dinner and hop on the computer.  On Tues and Thurs, I'll walk Oscar, studying at home, make dinner, eat dinner and then head to the library or Starbucks for a few additional hours of studying. Depending how comfortable I feel with studying, I will probably try to squeeze in some work-outs or runs.  I would be miserable going two months without any exercise!

Hopefully two months of this routine will pay off!
