October has got to be one of my favorite months. This October is shaping up to be a busy one for us. We have something planned for almost every weekend the entire month. Plus I’ll be gearing up for mid terms which come the fourth week of October and I also have four papers due at the beginning of November so I’ll be working on those all month as well.
We decided to take advantage of the last calm weekend we may see in awhile and get some things done around the house. As you can see I put up the Halloween decorations.
I wanted to try this pumpkin decoupage I had seen on the cover of Country Living but every time I went to buy the supplies my plans were thwarted by one thing or another. So I just have plain pumpkins sitting out front for now.
Andy is using the weekend to build our new garden shed. Yay! No more wading through tools and car parts just to get to my gardening gloves at the back of the garage.
I also baked the first pumpkin pie of the season. Yum. Perfect treat!
Tomorrow its back to the grind. Wednesday I have a Russian History essay exam so I think I’d better spend the rest of the evening going over my notes. But hey- there’s a light at the end of the tunnel. I applied for graduation this week!!
If all goes as planned and I don’t royally screw up something then come December 9 I should be D.O.N.E!! Well, at least for now. I’m so excited. I keep thinking about all the things I’ll be able to do once my time isn’t taken up with school work. At 30 I’ll finally have my bachelors. Sounds a little depressing doesn’t it? But I’m okay with it. Life got in the way and I can’t do anything about that. But at least I never gave up and it’s finally going to pay off.
