My Weekend To-Do List

Posted by Angie at 9:00 AM
So I have mentioned before that I am currently writing a thesis for my MA degree.  I try not to drag it into this blog too often (the poor project gets dragged into just about every other aspect of my life), but let me just give you a peek into my weekend:


While I find this comic hilarious, the sad truth is that my to-do list really has experienced this transformation.  Laundry became pressing, closet organization critical, and e-mails simply couldn't go a few minutes without being answered.  In the list of ways I love my thesis, I am currently weeping the absence of pages:

My third chapter is due next FridayOne week.  For the sake of utter and embarrassing honesty...I still have 20 pages that need to be written.  In the past two weeks I have been "working" on my thesis, I have managed to eek out a measly 3 pages.  3 ya'll.  3.  Pathetic by any standard.  My superpower of procrastination has also left me in an even worse predicament:  in just a few hours, my kiddos (aka undergraduate students) will be taking a midterm. Which means that I also have this to look forward to:

Followed by this:

And eventually this:

Oh boy!  What a weekend/week ahead of me.  It's just a week, right?  In a week I'll be laughing about this sleeping.  Ha.  Anyone else have problems with procrastination?  Grand tips so that I don't dig myself into a hole for the next deadline?  I am so kicking myself now.

I hope you all have wonderful plans for the weekend.  Let me live vicariously through you!  You know what I think you should do?  Check out THIS BLOG because tomorrow they are starting their adoption auction!  Side note...I just LOVE their blog design--isn't it just the cutest?  And don't worry, I haven't forgotten to update you on our own auction!  I can count the number of people who I still need to donate on one hand and hope to announce our grand total very very soon!

Much love,
Future Mama

Prayers for your thesis! When we were expecting our first I was finishing up my thesis and it was a bit crazy! :) But it was nice to have it done by the time we were a family of 3!

Busy busy girl! I definitely don't miss writing papers in college. I LOVE to write, but not when someone forces me to write about something. :)

Hope the words come quickly and you can rest and relax soon!

I will say some prayers for you. It is tough writing a thesis. I have a Ph.D. so I had to write a thesis and a dissertation....I can sympathize. BUT you will feel so good when it is finished. And it is good to get all of this done before you adopt:)
