Possibly a productive week?

So today...not very productive. Or at least, not by my standards. I was freaking out about how much I have to do this week (sorting clothes for garage sale, working on scholarships, getting my wedding dress preserved, cleaning the attic, landscaping, refinishing the furniture)...okay,'s not all going to get done. Then, when I told Kyle all of this, he came down on me kind of hard.

He told me to take a break.

A break?! What for? What would I do during a break? Nothing would get done! Maybe that's the point. I took a break on Thursday, though. After our finals were done for the day, I came home, showered, cleaned, baked, and watched movies with Kyle. That was a wonderful break. But now it's summer, and there's so many things to do!

I still have an hour and a half before I have to be at work. I think I'll go get my books, get some transcripts, and drop off my dress to be preserved. And then I'll come back and have lunch before work. And maybe make out a shopping list for when we get groceries this week.

I love summer! But it's sort of hard to get motivated sometimes :(

Finals Done!

So our finals are finished and my whole body feels so much lighter! We turned in the last of our things yesterday before noon, and since then we've done lots of things:

We have watched movies (Wolverine, Iron Man, Galaxy Quest).
I have been baking (bread, muffins, soft pretzels).
I have done some cleaning (actually just done the dishes several times and removed all my Spring decorations in favor of summer ones).
I have been on top of my Visiting Teaching calling (made LOTS of phone calls over the last day or so).
Kyle read a trade paperback (that thing was like 270 pages long)!
I have begun a new book (but fell asleep after chapter two).


I took a shower and had enough time after it to let my hair air-dry! I can't remember the last time THAT happened!

So today I think I'll continue cleaning and probably spend some time with my cat. Maybe I'll go to the grocery store, too...I baked so much yesterday that now I'm out of flour :(

Hurray for summer!
