The Tally

The end is near! There is a light at the end of the tunnel... all of the cliche things you can think of, insert here, because Jorden will be home SOON, and just in time for my favorite holiday and time of year (Halloween!!!).  I cannot WAIT.  I am dying for him to return...
On a funny note, I was trying to think of all the things I have done to "keep busy to make the time go by faster" as everyone suggested...
Well, in case you were wondering, here is what I have come up with and been busy with since May 6:

Shows I have Watched:
Mad Men season
Girls season
Game of Thrones season
6 seasons of Sex and the City (plus the 2 movies)
True Blood
2 Seasons of Boardwalk Empire
2 Seasons of Gossip Girl

I have read:
3 Fifty Shades of Grey books (one of them twice)
4 Book club selections.
4 months of Elle, Bazaar, Marie Claire, Allure, Cosmo, W magazine, Playboy.

Written 47 blogs.
Added 5,000+ words to my book.

Completed 4 college courses.

Hosted 1 blogger fashion swap, a few pool parties, a book club meeting.

Celebrated birthdays of my bro, grandmother, best friends and best friend's baby.

For Aveline:
Handled Aveline’s Pre-school graduation.
Took her to swim lessons in El Dorado Hills.
Took her to Vacation Bible School.
Signed her up for cheerleading.
Enrolled her in kindergarten.

Traveled to:
Lake Tahoe
6 Flags in Vallejo
San Francisco
Santa Cruz

All amidst doing the daily toss up of cleaning, shopping, etc.  There are things I could have done, like gone to the gym religiously, but that didn't happen... I spent hours and hours laying by my pool over the summer instead... although I have managed to shed a few decent lbs by changing my diet.

All in all... the time has gone by and been spent... although I cannot say fast enough.
I will be happy when Jorden is home, in our home, next to me... hopefully sooner rather than later!
