Satisfying Missions Accomplished

December 30th, 2015 at 11:16 pm

I'm just happy as can be with these days off between semesters. I still have a load of prep to do for Monday's class, but I feel like I've accomplished so much in a few days.

I've scheduled the replacement of our 20+ year-old water heater, paid the property taxes, successfully used up all our flex spending, returned items to four stores and sent back another package. I'm catching up on household chores too. We all have flu shots.

Today I sold three books and took a bag of donations to the women's shelter collection. In something that makes me happier than it should, I called loft.com about exchanging some pants I'd purchased as they didn't have a tall in my size when I'd ordered the original pair, but now they do. I'd had them in my online cart for days--but they were $30 more expensive than my original pair, and I really didn't want to either miss them or spend that much. The loft.com folks gave me the cheaper price, and I'm tickled. I think I have all the clothes I need for London.

We're out to the movies tomorrow night for our usual NY Eve movie, casual dinner, and puzzle/game night. I only wish I had an additional week with such time and productivity.

    Sounds like a nice, productive time!

    So excited for you! Sounds like a great NYE. We usually play games at home and have snacks. Do you find the first week of classes is busy? It seems to be it could be one of the least busy...but I'm probably thinking of it from a student perspective!

    The short-term online classes like the Winterim require a lot of back loading for everything to pop up ready to roll. Three weeks is a jam-packed term; I find lots of students aren't prepared for the workload.

    Oh sure short term classes would be heavy all the way through for both teacher and student! Take care in the coming days!

    Sounds like a fun way to spend NYE. Smile
