School's Out For Summer!

Actually, it's more like two weeks - but WHATEVER!!! I don't have any miscellaneous projects, quizzes, exams, postings, homework, anything hanging over my head for TWO WHOLE WEEKS!!

(BTW, can I just brag that I spelled miscellaneous correctly! Without spell check! Damn!)

I was wondering what to do with all of this perceived free-time when I realized that nothing will change much, except maybe my ability to fall asleep without worrying to death about a stupid school deadline. Being the biggest procrastinator I know, I rarely did schoolwork in a timely fashion. Often, I would leave it to the very last minute and then heave great sighs of remorse at my stupidity.

Case and point, my final exam for Information Systems Management was due to be taken by midnight on Sunday, 27 July. We had all week to do it and were allotted 3 Hours to take it. Guess when I started. Yep, about five minutes until 9pm Sunday night. Giving myself absolutely no extra time what-so-ever.

(Oh, and to top it all off there was a raging thunderstorm going on outside - so in between looking up the answers I was praying to the Baby Jesus that the power wouldn't go off and ruin my test. I think I must be addicted to anxiety. I really can't think of any other reason to behave so irrationally.)

Long story short, I have discovered that I don't actually have a whole heap of new found free time after all. BUT! I am going to enjoy these two weeks of non-procrastination none-the-less!

First - a Bachelorette party for Sissy. She's never really had one so we're going to do it up right. I'm getting some naughty frilly things for the honeymoon and make some jello shots. Other friends are bringing margaritas. I figure getting her drunk is a good start, but I'm not sure how to proceed from there. Any ideas? Nekkid men aren't really an option as my four-year-old will be camped out upstairs with Cinderella. Maybe some chick-flicks? I'm hopeless at this kind of thing.

Second - I'm going on a little extended visit to my parents so that they can take care of enjoy time with Muffin. Ah, some much needed R&R.

Third - Muffin and I are going to the beach as much as humanly possible. Whether she likes it or not. Mandatory Fun!

To wrap up: Fun will be had by all - like it or not!

"I think I must be addicted to anxiety." I love that line!!!

Well, I was going to suggest a p*nis cake like my cousin had, but I'm not sure what you could pass it off as to Muffin if she should ask for a piece!

@ Madame Queen - Too funny! I'm not sure what Muffin would say either!

Matter Of Fact Mommy said...

okay, first off let me just say that we're pretty damn similar. with the procrastination thing and the whole sucking-at-party-planning thing.

secondly, re: the bachelorette party? i think booze and movies is great. especially since muffin will be there. :)

YAY, enjoy your time "off"

@ MOFM - booze and movies it is! Plus, we're making her dress up with a tiara and feather boa. So we can get her drunk and take pictures. tee hee.
