It is the first week of summer and the first week of summer break, and we aren't bored yet; however, we aren't very motivated either. My to-do list is lengthy, and I feel like I spin in circles looking at it all and not accomplishing anything. I did wash the sheets on two or our four beds, though, and I am embarrassed to admit how long it has been since our sheets were washed. I hate washing sheets because that means I have to make my bed. It's been awhile, and that's all I will say about that.
Well, I guess I have to go make the damn bed now. I really wish I had a housekeeper to change my sheets and clean my bathrooms. That's all I would have her (or him) do. Instead, I will make my own bed, pee in my clean toilet (that I scrubbed myself today) and climb into the bed with the nice clean sheets (always feels so good) and read The Help. It's good so far. I have it on loan electronically from the library, and I forgot about it until today. I have to read it before it is deleted off my Nook! I love the voice the author uses; her first character (I'm only on chapter 1) feels so warm and southern. I've heard mixed reviews from friends who have read The Help, but I'm already engrossed. I'm juggling 3 books right now: The Help; Jacob Have I Loved; Game of Thrones. All three are great books so far, but I have to prioritize based on due dates!
Speaking of due dates, I may be doula-ing in August and September!
