Yes I Have...

Yes I have...

Put away my Christmas stuff for next year.
Figured out what I'm going to do for the reception (I think).
Done a lot of overtime work this week (4 hours of 10 so far!).
Talked on the phone to a friend or two this week.
Attempted to set a time to go bridesmaid dress shopping.
Watered the aloe plant, though it is still on a quest to die.
Figured out that I know a little bit about APA (not as much as MLA or CMS).
Accomplished one of my 1001 goals by sheer accident.
Folded my laundry (and put it away!).
Emailed several friends (though not all friends who I owe emails).
Nearly decided which engagement pic will make the paper.
Determined I will like to use comp time in May, so I will like earning it in March.
Finished my grocery shopping.
Cleaned out the hall closet.
Restarted my computer.
Purchased whitening strips.
Walked the trail at work quickly so that I don't have to think about weight.
Checked my voicemail at home and at work.
Returned most of the stuff I bought that I don't want.
Decided to keep the black sweater because it is warm and will still fit next year.
Gotten to work 10 minutes early every day since the last time I posted.
Thought about music for the ceremony and came up with a semi-plan.

So, since I've gotten a big chunk of stuff done since last week, I feel better about life in general. Ben also did the dishes, so that's another thing crossed off my list. In fact, he cleaned up the kitchen, which was really really nice, and he has cooked our dinners this week because he's my favorite super hero, and he loves me very much.

I have made myself a promise that I will work two hours every night. That way, I will have the weekends free to sort through things and pack thing and to enjoy myself and to plan the wedding. Then I will feel better in general, I think. It has been a long time since I had a Saturday morning to do with what I will, and I miss that. I miss going to the library and running my errands and just generally disappearing for a few hours into a crowd. Or cooking in my crockpot at home. Whatever. Granted, I've only been doing this for two days, but I feel good about it. (Though it does make me very tired, but in this economy, you can't turn down work.)

Also, as part of my grand scheme, I need to get a Wii and possibly some old (but not too old or crappy) TVs. Does anyone know how to go about aquiring a Wii? For example, if you know what days shipments come in at certain stores, that could help a lot. (I think I can find TVs on craigslist or the free market, but I'm waiting to see what I need first.)

So, that is what I know. I am feeling better. Thanks for the encouragement, everybody. I feel a little less nuts. (It helps that my mom didn't email me seven times today to ask me about all the things we have left to do like she did last week.)

I hope you all are doing well, too!

we got ours at best buy and they had STACKS of them (this was around christmas), so I am sure they have some. Also, check the resell stores (GameStop here, but I don't know what they have out there), but it probably won't make too much of a price break/
