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...
