First Two Months of Summer

It has been about a month and a half since I've posted anything here. Mainly because I've wanted some time to be lazy.

So what has been happening in my life?

Not a whole lot of anything. I've been working 40 hours every week and will continue to do so until school begins. Some days I hate it because I just want to enjoy the nice summer we are having but other times I think it is nice because it keeps me busy with something productive to do. Not to say I'm not being productive away from work because I am. Nathan and I are thoroughly cleaning and reorganizing our entire house! Boy! Is that a job. Although, right now if you were to walk in the house it looks horrible and messy. It is a work in progress that at times becomes frustrating. We are getting there. Last weekend we cleaned out the master bath and bedroom and this weekend we are cleaning out the closet, this may take a few days.

Last week was my mother's birthday. We met my parents at the Cumberland County Playhouse and watched Oklahoma. It was very good. My only negative thought about the play is that it was so LONG! It lasted for three hours and definitely felt like it. We then had dinner at Chili's which wasn't as good as we remembered Chili's being. However, it was nice spending the day with my parents. The next day we went to Memphis to see my grandfathers and I'm very glad we did this because it has been a year since I've seen them. It would be nice to see them more often but being 8 hours away makes that difficult. All in all it was a wonderful weekend spent visiting my parents :)

In other random news....I have begun reading Herman Melville's first novel "Typee". I like it but it is hard for me to read and follow because we don't use many of the words he uses anymore. I try to read at least one chapter a day which is about as much as my brain can handle. I'm purchasing tickets today for Nathan and I to go see the last Harry Potter movie. It's very sad and yet very exciting all at the same time.

Well, I think that pretty much catches things up :)
