Where is the time going?

Considering the fact that we're in the middle of a deployment, having the time fly is generally a good thing. We are excited for Andy's return in the fall and are anxious for that time to come.

I feel like I'm in the Twilight Zone or something though.

No husband going to work every day. No classes (except for piano). No schoolwork. No meetings of any sort. I have no babysitter, so I don't attend the spouse's coffees or bunco nights.

The days are all running together. I have to remind myself what day of the week it is.

You would think with all of this time off from our regular "stuff", that we would be getting a ton of things done. That isn't the case though!

I have a to-do list ten miles long and I feel like I have barely started on it. We will be starting school again in late July, because Andy will have a lot of time off in the fall and we'll want to spend it with him. :)

So, what HAVE we been doing with our time? Good question.

Eating a lot of popsicles.

Getting eaten alive by monster-sized mutant Alaskan mosquitoes.

Staying awake super-late, because who can sleep when it's still light out past midnight???

The one thing I have been doing consistently is exercising. I bought a Wii, along with Wii Fit and Active and have been using that and the treadmill. I've had a lot of fun with both of the games and I feel like I'm getting a workout. I'm sure it wouldn't be beneficial to an athlete or someone who was in really good shape. For me, out of shape after 5 kids and unable to go to the gym, it's perfect. :)

I've had extra yard work to do. I guess that is something. With the sun being up practically all night, the grass grows like CRAZY. I just mowed it a couple of days ago and it has already grown back. Weird.

I have been working on next year's curriculum choices and general spring cleaning. I haven't really finished anything though. I think that I just need to focus on ONE thing at a time instead of 20 and maybe I would feel a sense of accomplishment then.

I'd better go actually work on something...

I think your days sounds blissful! Maybe you just need another week like that and then productivity will kick into gear...
