Mid-Week Review

Doing pretty well, I guess. Monday night I paid for my Easter frivolity and stayed up all night finishing tax returns and lesson plans. Tuesday I felt accomplished and, um, tired. Being tired is not good for praying and reading the Bible. I watched an Easter sermon before falling asleep and letting my computer run out of battery. Slept in a little too late this morning to have any real quiet time. This evening I made up my mind to go to a Handel's Messiah sing-along at church - kind of a preview for a performance we're doing this Christmas. Of course that was amazing (I even used the old orange score from Hillsdale).

It's sad how seldom I get up to go do things. I forget how much I'll enjoy activity and company - or conversely, I forget how bad I feel if I'm just lying around doing nothing.

So made up a little "self-improvement" chart but haven't used it yet. Tuesday I was too tired to remember; today I was too busy (the day having been cut short at both ends). Maybe tomorrow I'll be back on track.

I'm amazed at how much of the week is already gone. That's what comes with having Mondays off, I suppose. The upper school final exam schedule just came out - the entire last week of school is devoted to reviewing for and giving finals. That means, after this week, there will be only four weeks of class left! And my birthday is next week. My, how time flies.

I miss you so much. Are you going to Hillsdale for graduation?

Must make a comment re: long shirts. It's not really the torso length that matters much, but the legs. If you have shorter legs, long shirts aren't good because they have the effect of stumpification, as the FugGirls say. Longer shirts look better on someone with longer legs, I have noticed, interestingly enough. The long shirts are particularly good for my short-torso-long-legs combo because they even it out. And they look good on long-legs-long-torso because...well...they cover the long torso? But shorter legs...must say, mmmmno. Just my thoughts.
