Saturday, May 21st will be the first day of the rest of my life!

That's because Friday the 20th will be my last day of work until August.  Ok, technically I will work 3 hours a week, but, really it's just to check messages and email, so who's counting it?  Anyway, that's the day I will  start doing a few things I've been wanting to do, a few things I've been putting off.  I'll start watching what and how I eat.  I'll be watching the budget more carefully.  Because I will have time to do so. 

I will create things.  I will plant a garden.  I will clean and organize my linen closet.  I will gut the downstairs bathroom.  I will cancel my satellite tv subscription and clean up the puddle the boys will surely disolve into once they can't watch sports center every morning.  I will scrapbook and paint with watercolors.  I'll cut coupons and start a stockpile of certain things and reach my goal of being the coupon maven of Minden.  Actually, that is the only goal I'm afraid of not reaching.  This town doesn't make it easy to be a coupon shopper.  You gotta drive a distance to get any deals.  But, it is a goal.  So...... let the fun begin!

On May 21st.
