Whew--I'm wiped out!

I have accomplished SO much yesterday and today. I needed to catch up on class work and I wanted to start getting rid of stuff I have been carrying around from move to move thinking I will go through it someday

I missed a few lectures (each 2 hours) due to travel or illness. The class will be over soon so I need to listen to them and take notes. So yesterday and today I transcribed 2 1/2 lectures for my class (4-5 hours / lecture). I also wrote a short memo for my class

My mom's Christmas present to me is a jean quilt. I've been collecting jeans over 10 years so I need to somehow get them out to her. In order to save on shipping I cut out all the seams and parts of the jeans she couldn't use for the quilt. I have 20 pounds worth of material to send her, and I think I cut off about the same amount. How many jeans is that? I don't even want to know!

Went through about 50 magazines to pull out the articles I want so I could recycle the rest and clear up some shelf space.

I am totally exhausted but feeling good about getting this done. Now I just have to write my last paper tomorrow (and re-read, or at least skim, the book I am writing about), keep listening to and transcribing lectures, clean my house, wash dishes, finish writing and addressing my Christmas cards, find boxes to pack the jeans in, and take down my Christmas stuff. Think I can do all that tomorrow?

Holy Moly! If you can do ANYTHING tomorrow I'd be did as much as I do in a week...or a month. You may have inspired me to wake up early tomorrow and get something done...maybe.

I've been collecting levis forever, too! One of these days it will be a quilt - or maybe more than one!
