Life moves fast

It’s been a busy week around here! We hit a drive-in movie theater for a dusk-to-dawn marathon (which required a full day of recovery afterwards), kiddos headed back to school and with that we threw two back-to-school/meet the teacher nights onto our to-do, started training for a new project assignment, turned out my final paper for an art appreciation class (that drove me insane because it’s not really my thing, but pulled out a 97 as my final grade – yay!), failed a post office exam in my continuing quest to find a “regular” job, and wrapped the week up with a very wet, rainy reunion type picnic with DW’s family.

I’m so tired! I have one more art class I need to take but decided to break it up by sticking a math in next. So close to being done. After almost 20 years of taking courses on and off, I am seriously only 4 away from finally getting that degree. It may have taken me practically forever, but hey, I’m doing it and that’s what really matters.

This week’s agenda involves some cleaning, furniture re-arranging and re-charging myself. Of course, I’m sure there are other things but I have no interest whatsoever in peeking at the calendar today… It’s my day off and I’d like to try to relax a bit!
