My assistant

Poor Minnie. She got ripped off. Her Spring Break with me was hardly a break. I worked on my National Boards the entirety of my Spring Break, except one measly day to clean, run errands and cook. Here she is sleeping in one of the dining room chairs as I worked from the chair next to her the majority of today.

I rarely slept in.
I spent close to 20 hours at one of three Paneras in town working.
I went to another candidate's house two full days to work.
I spent two full days working at my dining room table.
Another two days were spent working at Mom and Dad's dining room table.
I took only one nap, and that was only after waking up early to take Ellen to school.
I did zero shopping. Insert sad face here.
I had time to see a few friends, but not nearly as much time as I would have hoped.
And poor Minnie only got to go on two long walks (and lots of short ones) even though the weather was beautiful most days!

This might go down in history as the worst Spring Break ever. When I have been home, she's followed me around everywhere. Wanting to sit on my lap or sleep next to me wherever I'm working. She knows something is up, and I bet she's anxious for me to go back to my usual, lazy self where I have plenty of time to play and take walks.

The countdown is officially on! I will have everything completed, packed and shipped off before March 31st. I don't have a choice, that's when it is due. The next few days will be stressful, so send some calming & positive thoughts my way. I NEVER imagined this process would be so taxing. I'll be proud of myself when it's finished, but until then I can use all the assistance I can get :)

Pin It!

Wow Betsy...this shows how determined you are! Keep it will end sometime soon and you can slack off for the rest of your life...well, maybe not forever, but at least for a short time. Good luck! You get my vote!
