challengers.

After another great weekend comes one productive Monday.
A good way to spend the fifth day of October;

-Classes (Geography, Math, History, Ethics) 9-1.
-Stopped at the grocery store to pick up items for my mother
-Came home and conquered some math homework
-Did a load of laundry

-Transfered my bath products to my newly redone bathroom. For years and years I have always showered in the downstairs main bathroom. Growing up, my two older brothers shared the upstairs one while my parents have one in the master. An even distribution that I got used to for 18 years of my life or since I have been showering on my own. Even for years after my brothers moved out I didn't find the upstairs bathroom appealing (It had been run down with teenage boys for quite awhile.) Thanks, but no thanks. Recently my parents stripped the awful wallpaper that was in there and gave it a nice light face lift. Ah! Appeal in the upstairs bathroom! Who would have thunk it! It was nice to get all settled in.

-Cleaned out my room. I get in patterns where I clean my room and love it and try my best to keep it up. After a few months, it starts to slowly get more cluttered and messy. Each time I vow to keep it up. It gets hard, especially when I'm not here on weekends anymore and here for substantial time only two days a week. I must have gotten the vibes from my mom who cleaned and re-organized the house yesterday. She cleaned out all her old workout clothes (really nice workout clothes!) and I inherited them. This will be perfect because Eric just added me on his membership at Lifetime so they will be put to good use. I cleaned out my closet, drawers (to make room for all those new sweat soaking ensembles), my desk, and bookshelf. The room has a new organized appeal to it & I'm happy with that.

So today I was watching, as usual, The Weather Channel, and there is a documentary featured often called "It could happen tomorrow." This program pinpoints different areas in the U.S. and pairs it with a disaster that is most likely to hit that area due to research or simply just because it's been so long since it has last happened. Examples have included: what would happen if a huge hurricane hit New Orleans (this aired two years before Katrina hit), A Tampa hurricane that would wipe the town out as well as a Hilton Head hurricane that would do the same thing, a huge earthquake through Memphis, and the eruption of Mt St. Helen's in Washington. The thing that shocks me the most is that they tell you what will happen, how it's going to happen, and features the destruction that would likely be probable and these predicted things DO happen and do exactly as predicted, yet it prevents no one from leaving and it beings no new ideas to the table of what to do to prepare for potential disaster. Of course, you can never stop a natural disaster from happening, but you can stop some of the damage that occurs. It's just bewildering to me how accurate they are.

So this weekend, starting on Thursday I got this song/melody in my head. I only knew one part of the song but didn't know lyrics, just the tune. It was driving me crazy, I had no idea where I heard it except that I DID hear it more than once. I figured it was something new Eric had given me or something we heard on one of our playlists. After telling him this, relaying the melody, and telling him who I thought it could be, we went through some songs and thought of who the artist could be. After a weekend of curiosity, he figured out the song! He sent me it last night and I am so relieved! Here it is! I love it!

Ahead for the week is the usual showdown. Skating and work tomorrow and Thursday, classes and ballet on Wednesday, and Friday is filled with classes, followed by work, and a great weekend! Eric's cousin and her husband are coming up and hopefully we'll get some fun things in! Have a great week! Enjoy yourselves!

Sounds like you've been super productive! I really need to clean and reorganize.
