Hope everyone’s weekend has started off great. I am here in the office waiting for 5:00! I’m also waiting for the phone to ring! Anyway… enough whining.
Luckily, the Husband is at home today and able to run errands and get the laundry started. I plan to get myself completely organized for our trip tomorrow so that I will not have this major knot in my stomach all week. I am not sure if the Husband and I will be buying gifts for each other. I am hoping to at least find something small for him and for Maggie tomorrow while we are out gathering the last little pieces. Then on Monday, I get to stand in line at the Pack and Ship store. Stay tuned for some great boredom photos.
Besides packing, arranging, and shopping I also have to ship some gifts and get a book read and review written. At least I am enjoying the book so far. Review will be posted after Christmas! I also have to work on my grad school application. I emptied my brain into the computer the other day and came up with a rough 500 word essay. With some polish and some fleshing out, I am aiming for at least a 1000 words by the end of the week. It’s supposed to be a statement of educational goals. I of course put in some background about why I am choosing the program I am but I am not sure how far out they want the goals. Do they want my plans for their program or my plans until I retire? Do they want to know my interests now or what I plan on writing my first book on? So much to consider…
I want to have that big hurdle taken care of before/during the trip. I have been enjoying PhD comics and found the one below. Afraid this 1000 word essay will haunt me for the next 4-6 semesters… and possibly beyond.
What last minute holiday item is still on your list?
