End of Semester Craze Plus....


Vicki is moved and settled in to her new place.  She will start her new job Monday.  It was a long weekend of a lot of stress and work.  She has organizational things to do with her books and dishes but I think everything (or nearly) is unpacked.

This week has been crazy with move stuff at work and end of semester work stuff in addition to the culmination of my own classes.  Tuesday after a long work day I came home and finished off my last chapter of science.  I just have the last exam to do.  Wednesday I read part of the book and picked out stylistic things to write my paper on.  I wrote the rough draft and put it away.  Thursday morning I asked my chair if he had time to read it – he took the time.  He gave me GREAT feedback that I was able to use to refine my writing.  I turned in the paper on Thursday.  Now I just have to do my final project, which is a ten-page paper. 

This weekend will be working on that paper, bills, and sleeping.  I also have to finish a baby gift and work on the afghan for the grad gift.  I’m hoping to have a rough draft by mid-day on Sunday and then revise, revise, revise until Thursday when I have to go to class and turn it in. 

Once my classes are done, I’ll turn my free time to self-publishing the romance and meditations book.  I’ll also go back to working on my novel.  However, this summer I have a long list of things to crochet and write. 

If you've read my blog before you know my to-do list always outreaches my ability to get stuff done.  I plan to get a lot done including rearranging the house now that we no longer have kids or pets.  (pause to enjoy the thought)  I’m looking forward to having a quiet peaceful house.  No idea whether I’ll actually get that or not. 

I just have to get through the end of semester stuff and the move at work – then some of my sanity will return (if I had any to begin with).
