Blessed are those whose strength is in you, who have set their hearts on pilgrimage . . . They go from strength to strength, till each appears before God in Zion.

Summer To Do List

I'm a bit panicked cause I blinked and it's already the last days of June. How the heck did that happen?!

When I dreamed of summer during those long days of educating America's future generation, I had many hopes and dreams for how I would spend my days. What have I accomplished, you ask? Well, let's see, I've gone swimming multiple times a week, my tan is looking nice, I found a place near my house that threads for cheaper than the place I used to go to last year, and I've gone swimming multiple times a week. Yup, that about sums it up.

In an effort not to waste the rest of my summer, I'm typing out my summer to do list here. Hopefully, seeing it in black and white will breathe some life into my summer plans and prompt me to get to work!

So, I present to you, in no particular order, my Summer To Do List:

1. Organize the boxes of papers I brought home from school w/ me.

2. Finish unpacking and organizing my room (honestly, this may not happen, but I really hope it does!)

3. Sort through my classroom materials (yes, this is different from #1).

4. Finish reading Watership Down, Anna Karenina, the lastest Wheel of Time book, and the numerous other books I started reading in the past year(s) that I have yet to finish.

5. Go to England (unfortunately just to visit, not to live).

6. See Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix at IMAX in 3D!

7. Visit Waco (especially Antioch -- I sure do miss that church!)

Hmmm . . . when I began writing this post I thought my list would be much longer than this . . .

Well, I guess it's enough to get me started and keep me busy. Hopefully I get it all done! Why am I such a procrastinator???

I know how you feel! Where, oh where has the summer gone? It is almost July!

Guess Mark got to you about the Wheel of Time books. :) I would love to re-read Watership Down and Anna Karenina. But, the time issue again. I've been debating about whether or not to read Watership Down to the kids.

as a fellow artsy-fartsy, for next year, i personally would recommend taking the first few weeks of summer, or maybe just June in its entirety, off completely - let a vegging marathon be your #1 goal, period. then after you're all rested up and almost feeling bored, plunge into your to-do list with renewed fervor. :D then since you would have already veged & can cross #1 off your list, it won't feel like procrastinating. (we artsy-fartsies just like to absorb life & enjoy it, ¿que no? :o)) (i need to follow my own advice... the weekend is almost over & there are some dishes in the sink calling my name...)

i like the way u think, tirzah! heck, i can add that into this year's list and cross it off immediately (i love doing that)!! AND i'm in waco and went to antioch this morning, so there goes #7! plus, i'm almost finished w/ watership down! i think anna karenina may be too lofty a goal, though . . . however, i may be on an airplane for 9 hours in a few weeks . . . ya never know!
