Please don't be shocked that I have posted three times in three days. This is not normal. Don't get used to it. I actually have four and a half days off which, and this is the completely crazy part, I am spending all of them at home. In McMinnville. At my actual house. Sleeping in my own bed. I know, it hasn't really sunk in for me either. :)
Considering in the ten days prior to this I had spent a total of maybe 20 hours at home and come Sunday I will be gone for the next five days, the time at home was desperately needed. In fact Laura and I were thinking about it and this may be the longest stretch of time I have spent in our house since I moved in at the end of November. I am so done with my nomadic lifestyle. The mystique is long gone.
In the past couple of days I have worked on homework (classes started up again last Saturday) and caught up on my sleep and all the NCIS DVDs we had in the house. In fact I am missing watching them tonight. Turk and I are impatiently waiting for the next disc to show up from Netflix. And Fox delayed the newest Bones because of Bush's final address. Grrrrr. Very sad, I know but we need our fix. Though thanks to Travis's donation of a TV to the house we are discovering the joys of a remote control. Very exciting.
Today I cleaned the kitchen and bathroom, two things I have been wanting to do for awhile. I even hung a few pictures on one wall in the kitchen. I am hoping to hang some more in my room and the living room before I go back to work. It will be nice to have something on the walls to break up the white but mainly it will be nice to have them off my floor. I want space to move in my room. I have way too much crap and I have even downsized!
The tentative plan for tomorrow: do laundry, pack for five day trip, visit parents, go grocery shopping, cook for trip, finish attacking room, call Seth and congratulate him, get library card and check out reference section for class assignment, do more homework, block scarf for Travis, and possibly bake cookies and hang more pictures. Hence why I am setting my alarm or else I will sleep the whole day through. We will see how much actually gets done.
I also posted on my IF LJ. I got the impression from Pua that the link may not be working so here is the url: http://mal25if.livejournal.com
. Everyone in my class is required to keep a blog and read each other's blogs. I find it interesting that I am the only one who chose to use LJ, everyone else used blogspot or wordpress, neither of which had I hear of until last term. Then again I am not much of a blogger or blog reader.
Off to listen to more Jasper Fforde and see if I can make some progress on my room before it is time for bed. As a quick side note, applesauce with roasted almonds and chocolate chips is a very tasty treat.
