A Shift

Boy how things change in a week. Last weekend I was so stressed out trying to get all my homework done before the end of the semester. This weekend has been so nice and relaxing! I like this way so much more!!!

Yesterday I went and got flowers so I could get them planted. I got hanging baskets done, and the front flower beds done. I got the back flower beds cleaned out and then it started raining. It hasn't stopped yet so I haven't finished up. Maybe next weekend. I also got the items I need to build another flower bed in the backyard. I can't wait to get it all landscaped and pretty. Then I'll post pics to show you all the new fence and flowers. Good times. I'm also having dirt hauled in so I can level out some spots in the yard and reseed. The small ponds throughout the yard make it pretty obvious that I have some low spots.

Today I worked on my bedroom. Mainly my closet and dresser. I ended up with three huge bags of clothes to take to the salvation army tomorrow. I also got all my laundry done which I was way behind on, my shoes (I have too many) organized, and the closet rearranged for summer stuff in the front. Surprisingly that only took me about 1 1/2 hours. Now I wish I hadn't put it off. I kept thinking I didn't have time to do it during school and then it didn't take that long at all.

I have gotten caught up on most the shows I have recorded. I only have 6% taken up in my DVR now instead of 72%. I have gotten caught up on the three most recent People magazines, and I'm reading a book for fun not work or school! What a great weekend!!! I even got all my recycling stuff sorted so I can take it to be dropped off this week.

I had forgotten how nice it is to have just work and home stuff. No school. I feel so much calmer, more organized, less nervous and anxious! I like it a lot. It makes me kinda reconsider my plans to keep going to school full time. I wonder if I ought to cut back to part time. Feeling sane is worth a lot!!!

So I'm off to relax with my enjoyable book now!
