My last assignment...I hope!

I am currently taking a break from my LAST two papers of the semester!!! I need to go back and edit all 18 pages, of course, but I am ALMOST finished. The papers aren't actually due until Wednesday, but the thought of finishing my LAST assignment is very motivating. Truth be told, I don't really have to do all that well on these two papers to do well in the course, but I am a bit of a perfectionist. Therefore, I will press on!!!
I have already been thinking about what I want to do when all of this schooling is said and done...
#1. Well, if you haven't already figured this out, I really love the "idea" of decorating. I am constantly checking out decorating blogs, stealing decorating magazines from my mom, and watching HGTV to get ideas. My mom, as many of you know, is an interior decorator, so I am also picking her brain all the time for ideas and suggestions. I know she gets tired of my endless list of ideas and possibilities for our home. One issue I've had with decorating thus far has been that I have had NO time for it. You guys saw me painting like a crazy person on my Snow Days! However, my largest problem with decorating is that I think too much about it. I am a perfectionist (as stated earlier), and this does not really work well with decorating. As my mom tells me constantly, I need to think a lot less about things. There is no perfect way to arrange items on a mantel or pictures on a wall. All that being said, I am really looking forward to spending more of my time turning our home upside down. :) I love the changes that we have made thus far, and I look forward to many more. Get ready for many more home updates on our blog!
#2. I also look forward to coming home from work and deciding what I would like to do with my time. No more projects and papers hanging over my head! Andy and I used to take walks ALL the time when we were first dating. I loved those walks. I look forward to many more in the near future.
#3. Also, if I want to experiment with my cooking and baking, I will have time to do so! I have resorted to staple meals that I can make quickly lately because I don't have enough time to worry with anything complicated. Get ready for some experimental meals, Andy!
#4. I also look forward to actually starting and finishing a book in a reasonable amount of time! Harry Potter, here I come!
#5. Lastly, I can't wait to get back into my scrapbooking. I LOVE to lay out the pages and see it all come together. I gave Andy a scrapbook of our dating-engagement memories on our wedding day, and I have been itching to complete another. I will have the time to do that now!
So many things to do, so little time. :) How will I ever decide where to start???
P.S.--Andy has spent much of his weekend editing my EXCELLENT video footage of his football game. The outstanding video of their mad football skills is currently on YouTube. Yes, the Cricket Spiders are that awesome. :) To be honest, I saw enough of the game in person, but perhaps one of our 2 blog readers would want to check them out? If so, look them up!
