That's quite a bit for....less than 3 months. But, I'm superwoman, right?

As for this last week...there's not good reason to update you on daily things cause it was all mostly STUDY STUDY STUDY! for my 3 more exams I had Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. Then on Friday I cleaned house all day and prepared dinner for Matt and Shelsey and Chris and Carrie. They came over and we had dinner, played games, and watched a movie. Then Saturday I worked then hung out with dad until Mike got into town. Sunday we took hannah with us to church, and went out to lunch and visited Micah's sister's family. Today I hung out with Savvy all day and Micah got his grading done. Now I'm off to buy him some deodorant! Fun stuffy! Buhbye for now!

"This Afternoon"

Well, I never did get back when I said I would to update this on what I got done on the 8th. I guess I'll have to get used to not updating this daily. It's amazing...I'm usually so busy that I never get a chance to sit down and write on here. Which, is funny, considering the whole reason I have this blog is because I thought I wasn't being productive!!

So, here's the update!:

5.8.06 (Monday) I totally got Wonderwoman points! I'm so proud of myself. I got TONS of catching up done!! And I worked 1045 to 3pm.

5.9.06 I had all my classes and my lab this night. Afterwards I was so run into the groud that my hubby took me out to Applebee's for Spinach and Artichoke dip. He loves me. I have that I got 12 points this day...but sometimes I forgot, so I'm not sure how accurate that is. Oh, I also worked from 3pm to 5:30pm

5.10.06 My new nephew was born today. And, so was Joy's! We have twin nephews. Hehe...I only have 3 points marked for this day...But, I know I got more than that, cause it said I went to the bank, and to Panera. I also did a lot of shopping at Walgreens. Then we had shekel shack and I went out to finish my ASTR lab project in Topeka.

5.11.06 Today was my last ACCT lab...but technically, I turned my homework in for that and skipped it. (OH, which means I would have had to do my ACCT homework Wednesday too!) I had my REL final this day...I think it went well. We shall see. I think that's pretty much all I did this day...I was beat! Essay finals take a lot out of you!! No, wait! I worked 3pm-9:30 and got quite a bit done on my ASTR project that was due on the 12th.

5.12.06 Stop day for school! I finished my ASTR project and got it turned in by 1pm. Micah and I then took care of our internet problem, had qdoba, and then went to Topeka. He played poker, and we visited his sister who just had her baby.

5.13.06 Lots of driving...but no homework! I went to a mother's day breakfast in Frankfort then came back to Topeka, took a nap, then Micah and I left for Manhattan where we had dinner, and went to a dance recital (they also went to a graduation party). It was a nice day.

5.14.06 That's today! Happy Mother's Day! Today I went to breakfast with my mom, went to church (Where I got mistaken as a mom by 3 kids!), went go-karting with my dad, then came home for a ASTR review session, and now I'm at work. After I finish updating this, I think I will try to catch up on ASTR. First homework all weekend! School's almost done! YAY!

That's it for now! Goodnight.

Sickly ol' me

I think maybe I've been productive since the last time I posted. I've been sick and so it's hard to tell. I always lower my standards when I'm sick so that I can rest and recover. That's probably a good thing, right? Right!

Let's's been a week!
Tuesday 5/2 I would have had class from 9:30 until 2:15. That makes for a long day. I also had ASTR Lab that night. So, during the break I'm sure I worked on that, and then took a nap.
Wednesday 5/3 I had class in the morning, then it was somewhat of a catch up day. I did a lot of cleaning! I got 14 super woman points...not bad for being sick. I also studied for an accounting quiz and did accounting homework. As well as having AWANA and getting a sunset point.
Thursday 5/4 would have been class again all day. I got 15 super woman points. I also worked from 6:30pm-9:30pm.

Side note: Super woman points: My goal is 30 a day. I get them for crossing stuff off my to do list. They become wonder woman points when I've reached my goal of 30 in a day!

Friday 5/5 Friday was spent studying for my Religion Exam I had that afternoon. There was A LOT of reading and flash card making left to do before the test. I also had my last accounting lab. That night Micah and I cleaned the house all up. One of his class mates was coming over to work on a take home test they've got to get done. We invited her fiance over for dinner too, but he couldn't come. But, that's ok, cause my husband's wonderful. Not only did they get a lot of their studying done, I also got a clean house, dinner made by my wonderful husband, AND got to hang out with him when he was done studying. It was a good day.
Saturday 5/6 Micah and I slept in! Then I went to work at 11am and he went with Matt to a graduation. The rest of the day Micah and I hung out with my parents, had dinner, played games and watched a movie. No homework, but it was wonderful!
Sunday 5/7 I was forced to get homework done!! Had Econ homework that was done that night. I went to church in the morning to run the soundsystem, but wasn't needed. So I got a lot of verses memorized. Then we went out to lunch with a friends after church. After that I did lots of ECON work until dinner with the fam. Then more homework and then the bowling tournament Allen and Justin were in. Very much fun!

That's all the catchin' up I have! Today's stuff later this afternoon!!

Still no homework

I think maybe I was productive today. I got 20 superwoman marks.

I ran a lot of errands (returned a movie, went to the bank, got my pills...) I also did a lot of cleaning including laundry. I balanced the checkbook and worked on our budget. I suppose today was wife day...but no homework.

I think God's trying to teach me lots. One thing I think he's trying to teach me is that I would be more productive with my time if I gave my time to him. It's kinda like your tithe. If you give Him your money (Which He gave to you!) you're recognizing that it's all from Him, and you're letting Him have control. Why shouldn't it be that way for all of your resources? Just a thought.

Is THAT productive?

Well, I don't feel like I've been productive for several days now. But, I suppose that the things I did do were worth while things. Maybe that's what God is trying to teach me...

Friday I did my accounting homework before I went to meet my group for our presentation. We worked a little more, then went to class. The presentation went fine, I suppose. But then, instead of being productive I went to lunch with my daddy! That was nice. Then I went back to class for a while. My husband and I walked home to get things ready for Topeka. We went to dinner with my parents and I worked on the bowling money for the end of the season prize fund. It was all ready by the time we left.

Saturday was another day of no homework. I worked at 7am until 3:15pm, and didn't get a lick of homework done. I even tried less than I normally do. Saturday night was worthwhile, too, though. My husband and I hung out for a while, then went to a bbq for our apartment complex. After that we went out and rented a couple of movies. We just finished watching one of them when mom called. So we went out to dinner with my parents again saturday night, then watched a second movie with them.

Sunday I was forced to get some homework done. We went to church, and then I came home and worked on my ECON homework that was due online that night. Then I had lunch and played a game with my family. Then we were at the bowling alley all night.

Lots of family time this weekend. But, I did also get some homework done, and completely finished my duties as secretary. So, that was nice. In short: I guess all that stuff was productive in its own way.
