Catching Up

Today, I'm catching up. It feels like forever since I've been able to sit at the computer and read all the blogs I like to read. And importantly, comment on all the blogs I like to read. If you feel like I have neglected you, I am sorry. I will read you today! (and tomorrow and the next day until I'm caught up!)

We had a snow day today and have a delayed start tomorrow and I just had the last four days before that to get caught up. And there's nothing in the forecast. My calendar is empty. I feel like I've been given a new lease on life. Yep, that's right. I have time. Time on my hands. After the craziness of last semester, I feel like a new woman.

Last week, I unpacked from our Christmas trip. I put away all of the new toys and gifts, and even put together a photo book of our trip. I spent the weekend tidying up all of the loose ends around here. And by today, everything is done. The dishes are done. The laundry is done. The floors and bathrooms are clean. I cleaned out a closet today and it looks fabulous. We played in the snow. I shoveled the 18+ inches of snow off the driveway by myself. We've walked the dogs four days in a row. I even took time to refill the bird feeder.

Sigh.

Life is good.

Wow. That's the most impressive thing I've read in days.

Everything is done here too. NOT being in school is AMAZING. I never really appreciated being at home without those pressures until I had those pressures....now, what I can achieve in a day is amazing. I am wonder woman....and so are you!

Wow, that is inspiring. I am going to try and tackle our laundry mountain today. Let's just hope there isn't an avalanche. :)

I'm glad you are feeling renewed and refreshed. Now could you come over and clean one of my comments?

Yay for having time!

Sometimes I feel like I have time, but when I think I have a spare moment, the Little Mister needs extra attention. And I don't mind, but some things have been neglected. His scrapbook, for one..
