Holiday weekend but still working!

Scott keeps telling me I need to relax. I keep telling him that I don't have "time" to relax. LOL! Such a vicious cycle. Basically, I am 12 days away from CHA and have SO many things that still need to be done. Therefore, I'm ready to pull out my hair.

This weekend we're heading to Lake Cumberland to spend some time with my family. I'm still bringing all of my "work" just in case I get some time in the evening to finish some projects, etc. I have three more classes to complete for my teaching in Florida (I had to wait for the paper) and I need to finish my handouts for CKU. I even had a nightmare that I forgot them and that my class was a disaster. Now I'm paranoid, so I've been very meticulous and sure to include everything.

Classes and work aside, I am going to enjoy myself tonight. I plan on taking some great photos, too! I need some scrapbooking material, even though goodness knows I haven't scrapped in so long that I have photos piled up. (Well, organized in photo albums waiting to be selected.) I'm hoping that on the 4th, I will get my "day of scrapping" that I've been BEGGING for. We'll see...

Wow!!! I have read all of your posts and am wondering where you got the biography of my life lol!! This is my new favorite thing lol....

But now, seriously, when I read your fat girl post, I cried. I got mad at the jerks in the SUV. I got annoyed when the well-meaning friend showed up with her self help book.

Although I won't go into it here, I'm basically looking at a mirror of my life. I can still remember the song that my supposed friend sang to me in fifth grade when I walked down the hall and all our classmates were there. I remember the "well-meant" comments from friends and family. I remember the pain of being the "token fat girl" in a small close-minded high school.

I also remember NKOTB!! Oh How I LOVED them, Jordan in particular. I remember the thrill of getting the ir newest allbum on my 13th birthday. I remember fishing, but with my granpa. I KNOW the pain of losing someone you care about deeply suddenly. I love the 80's and anything that goes with it. (Do you remember 16 Candles. What's a happening Hot stuff!)

Anyway, that's my rant. I have a feeling that if we were closer we would be kindred spirits. Thanks for the inspiration. I LOVE your line!!
