drained

My favorite view in the world...the river.

Today has been an emotionally draining day at work. I'm tired out. A frozen enchilada from Trader Joe's is in the oven and microwaved spanish rice. Not great but I'm starving. I could fall asleep right now and probably will after I eat. It's amazing how much emotion can drain your energy. I forced myself to go to the gym after work and it felt good. Walked 2 miles on the treadmill and went to my muscle conditioning class. It is so nice to be back to somewhat of a normal gym routine.


As of tomorrow night at 9:30 I will be...


(a) done with school forever - I hope ;) and...

(b) ON VACATION! Yeah!


I'm not going away anywhere special and Cary will be working nights still but I'm looking forward to the time off to relax. But it is harder to relax when you are home...at least for me. There is always some chore to be done or something to clean up, organize, etc. I need to make sure I do that kind of stuff (maybe) the first day of my break and then RELAX!


By the way...if you all have a minute would you mind commenting on my blog with some of your current favorite reads?? I need some beach books for my vacation and am looking for recommendations! Thanks!


Well...off to eat my dinner and hopefully check out some of my favorite blogs! Have a nice night...

Hooray for being done! I hope you get some rest. Here are a couple of books I've enjoyed. Peace Like a River by Leif Enger, Gods in Alabama by Joshilyn Jackson, Annie Freeman's Fabulous Traveling Funeral by Kris Radish, The Memory Keeper's Daughter by Kim Edwards and I've just started Blonde By Joyce Carol Oates.

You're almost there! How about "The Other Boleyn Girl" by Philippa Gregory? I'd also recommend "The Memory Keeper's Daughter" like Heather :)

Woohoo for the end of school! Hope you are able to relax and enjoy your vacation. I know what you mean about not relaxing at home -there is always something that's needs to be done.
