I can’t say that this happens regularly, but this Saturday feels like a Sunday. I’m already dreading the impending return to the grind. Luckily, it has been a fairly productive day for me. Sespiand I had a good talk about that earlier…
I’m one of those people who judges my days based on my productivity. A good day for me balances down time (sleeping in, taking a nap, watching a favorite show, playing on my comp) and getting a lot done. I was eager for spring break because it meant that I’d have time at home to get something done around the house. After a full week at work, I don’t tend to make a lot of progress on the weekend, which has been been upsetting lately. I had co-workers that were heading off to exotic vacations, and as much as I lust for one of those, I hate returning from a vacation and plunging headfirst into work.
So, let me do a feel-good list of all of the things that I’ve accomplished over the break!
Got my POAs (Power of Attorney for my non-mil folk out there) for DH and Trinnie (she’s my back-up).
Created a 46+ slide PowerPoint presentation for DH, with step-by-step instructions on how to pay all of our bills. Yes, he really does need this.
Created a calendar for DH of all of the approximate bill due dates.
Revamped the blog.
Washed my car.
Vacuumed my car and threw out trash and needless items (like those electronic chargers for items I don’t own anymore).
Re-organized my dresser drawers and hanging clothes. Put all folded clothes in there proper place, e.g., not on the bedroom floor around my vanity.
Eliminated clothing items that don’t fit, putting them in a box for my school’s clothing drive. Took box of clothes to school for donation.
Cleaned the master bathroom.
Tidied up DH’s daughter’s future room. I use it for the packaging of sold Etsy items.
Found a lesson planning calendar for next year. Wrote down all of the calendar days, determining how many days I actually have to plan for. Began writing down plans for first day of school.
Finalized packing for BMT, including my important documents folder. Made photocopies of important documents to keep at home.
Picked up prescriptions for glasses and contacts, sincethis websitetold me to bring them to BMT with me.
Worked out consistently, alternating run days and pushup/sit-up days. On Monday I start Week 3 of thehundred pushupsandtwo hundred sit-upsprograms.
Finally purchased Tricare Reserve Select insurance for DH’s daughter (actually, the family plan) and United Concordia dental plan for reservists. [MUCH more on this later!]
Overall, it was a pretty good week for me. I wish I had more time, as I didn’t get as much done for school as I would’ve liked. Lesson planning for next year is a daunting task for me, since I don’t lesson plan to begin with, let alone for a long time period that’s so far out. I also have two IEPs coming up on Wednesday, on top of CSAP testing (Colorado’s state testing) this week. It should be hectic, to say the least.
I hope everyone’s been having a great week and an even better weekend! Fortunately, we were blessed with great weather this week, aside from some gusty winds!
I’m a 31 year old Navy sister, Army wife - Air Force wife to a prior service Marine/Soldier, and an Air Force Reservist. I am a happy wife and mother. My husband switched branches and joined me in the Air Force Reserve. We look forward to a future of dual military service!
