Procrastination and whining

I have a 2500 word paper due in a few weeks. The thesis for it is due this week, the outline is due next week (in complete sentences), and I haven't even started. I have some of the research printed out, but I haven't even read it yet. I even picked a topic that interests me (health care reform) and I am passionate about, but I just can't motivate myself to work on it. I really need to get moving. I am just sick of research papers. I really hope my next English class is creative writing.

Long time no posts and swine flu

I have been really awful about keeping up with this blog. I have been keeping busy with schoolwork, cleaning, schoolwork, knitting, schoolwork, crochet, schoolwork, learning to coupon, and more schoolwork. My teachers this block are sadistic and think it is fun to have a 500-750 word paper due in both classes just about every week. I am coping, but when this block is over I will be breaking out the champagne.

School has started for Jimmy. He is loving it, but I am not loving having to be up at 7am. He is happy to see his friends again. School has been in session for 3 weeks. He had only gone 1 week. Then he brought home swine flu. First week Jimmy was sick. It wasn't too bad. He had a fever, cough, sore throat, and was bouncing off walls. Second week everyone else had it. Jay and I both had fevers for 2-3 days, cough, sore throat, and were exhausted. Bianca was coughing, had a fever and was bouncing off walls. Yeah, apparently the tired part only affects adults.

On the craft front I just finished crocheting a sunhat for Bianca. I will try to update with some pictures soon. I still need to finish the sweater I started for Jimmy in the spring. I am pulling that out next since the weather is getting cold again. Fall is officially here. I have a yard full of leaves I really need to rake up. Christmas is around the corner. I really need a ball or two of sock yarn to start some gifts. I am still hoping to get my sewing machine for my birthday and my spinning wheel for Christmas.

The weight loss project has stalled. I need to get better about exercising daily. I have the treadmill set up in a great spot but I need to start using it more. I have been pretty good about snacking though. I mostly stick to healthy snacks and have not been buying junk food.

My obsession with nail polish has dwindled some. Mostly because I started biting my nails again. I am trying not to though. It usually happens while reading my assignments for the week. I think I will wear gloves while I read them from now on.

I think that is all the news for now. I will try to update this more often in the future. I can't promise daily updates but I will try for at least a weekly one.
