Okay, so my desk
is semi-cleared, work surfaces straightened, school plans about 2/3 done and now I give myself a reward trip. I try to do this every summer, not only because I need a break but also as a kind of "carrot" to keep me working toward the goal. We'll have a family vacation later in the summer but this one is just for me and even though it's short will bring more rest and leisure than the road trip, which will be lots of fun in totally different ways, and lots more work!
So far I've spent a small fortune on sheet protectors, colored sharpies, binders, dividers, and planners, not to mention all the books I've found on ebay and half.com. Still lots to do, but now it's all "seeable" so I'm taking a deep breath and enjoying the view. How about you??
