Lazy Saturday

Saturday afternoon and I know there are a million things I should be doing, like housework, but here I sit looking for things I can do from my comfortable chair here.
I did manage to make a few online purchases for Christmas so I can cross those things off of my list. And Sara and I got her college loan application filled out and submitted for her next (and last, yipeeeeeeeee) semester of college. I can't believe it is finally here. Her final semester of college. Graduation is only a few months away now and I couldn't be more proud of her. The past 4 years has flown by, that's for sure. It hasn't been easy. This young lady has had nothing handed to her, by any means. She has had to work and work hard for everything she has accomplished, but she's doing it with style and grace.
We have been researching the different Anthropology/Paleontology job programs offered at some of the larger Museums throughout the East Coast and it would be awesome if she can get into an Internship at the Smithsonian in Washington, DC this summer. She feels that is where she will be able to make the most of her degree, and even if she starts out just doing displays and research, the experience alone would be worth it.

I can't tell you how much I needed this 4 day weekend. I have been putting in 11-12 hours a day at work for the last couple of weeks and I really needed several days in a row to just chill. I can see a permanent indentation of my butt on my sofa cushions but I don't even care. LOL I've caught up on the tv shows I've been sleeping through thanks to some CBS shows being on On Demand. Survivor is getting really good...I wasn't sure I was going to enjoy this season when they started out but there have been a lot of twists and turns this season and a few really interesting characters. I've missed the Amazing Race the last couple of weeks so I need to catch up on that, and I saw the last 2 episodes of Jericho yesterday. I really have enjoyed that one this season.

I suppose I should get out of this chair and get something done around here. Those dishes aren't going to wash themselves, and I really need to grab some groceries at the store.
I hope everyone is well and having a nice weekend.

Be back soon.

You have reason to be proud of Sara and her accomplishments. She's worked very hard toward her goal. I hope she can get an internship at the Smithsonian, and you're right...that would be awesome.

Glad to hear you're catching up on your rest. *hugs*

Congrats to Sara!!
You have done her proud as well :)

I wasn't sure about Survivor either last season it took me about 10 shows to get into it...
But this season has captured my attention right off the start and each week I am on the edge of my seat!
