Weekend Reads: looking ahead
Is anyone else feeling as crazy as I am this week? I just can't seem to keep up! Even after having Monday off. I feel like I'm busy in preparation for things, for the future, which is nice after having so much snow around me. I'm planning my high school reunion and it's going to be the weekend of July 4th--a big day in my hometown that's full of smiles and friendship and warm weather (hopefully). I'm asking college classmates to donate to the Colby Fund which feels both nostalgic and forward thinking at the same time, we're helping make our awesome experience possible for future generations of mules and I'm super jealous that they have 4 years to make friends, learn, all that good stuff. I'm putting a gift together for my new godson with my parents and getting him some books that he's too little for, looking forward to when I can share these special books with him and back to how much I loved them as a child. I'm paying my deposit for the beach club I've belonged to since I was a child--thinking about getting my toes in the sand and can't wait for that. What's been on your mind lately? Any fun future plans?
