Weekly Wrap-Up.

I cannot believe it is already June 9th -- we have a busy few weeks ahead of us, and I have a feeling this month is going to come and go pretty darn quickly. It doesn't help that I work six out of seven days of the week. The longer I continue with this work schedule, the more I begin to resent it. I would love to have two days off in a row, but I have a feeling that won't change for awhile longer. Maybe in the winter I will start looking elsewhere.

Normally, D and I are homebodies on the weekend, so having my best friend in town and going out to celebrate her 30th birthday on Saturday night was a nice change and lots of fun! You know you're old when its 11:00 pm and you're ready to go home and fall fast asleep as soon as you hit the sheets. In my defense, I had been up since 6:00 am and had a long day at work!

Today we slept in a little bit and started to organize our apartment. In two weeks, his family is coming to stay with us for a few days. We have a spare bedroom, and four people coming to stay with us. In other words, we have a lot of cleaning and re-organizing to do to make room for everybody. I have almost filled up a green garbage bag of old clothes that we don't wear and plan to donate. We also have a lot of old furniture that we are probably going to take to the dump because we don't have the time to try and sell or give it away. I can't wait to clear out some of the stuff because I hate all the clutter.
