    I didn't. I didn't clean/organize my home as much as I wanted to. I didn't work on logistics of ideas/lessons as much as I wanted to. I didn't go on a vacation like I would've hoped to.

    NOPE! The online course I took was WAY more work than I expected. I did not get my closets cleaned out or my daughter's room cleaned out. I didn't get the planning done that I wanted to get done, but oh, well!

    Me neither. I still have a couple of more weeks, but everything will not be done on my list. I had seemed to very lazy this July- not very motivated :blush:

    I wanted to accomplished these things during the summer =)

    1)Pass Calculus CSET : Score Pending (8/18/08)
    2)Clear Multiple Subject: Pending Review (8/30/08 I think)
    3)Clear Single Subject: Pending Review (8/30/08 I think)
    4)One Class done for my Master degree: On going, just took midterm

    All those 4 things are really important to me, hopefully things turn out well.

    I am still trying to get things done. I did not feel motivated at all in July either. I am trying to be more motivated in Aug.

    Ditto! The summer was too short! It will be worse next summer, because I will be working on my masters. I feel like an underachiever. :(

    I didn't get any of my closets cleaned out this summer or do most of the things on my to do list. I did get the #1 priority out of the way which was to obtain a job!

    Nope, never have, never will. My list is always long and the time always seems short.

    This was my first summer off as a teacher... I found myself fairly productive:

    1. Got on a routine at the gym
    2. Took a vacation
    3. Planned out my first two units for both grades I teach
    4. Finished my curriculum map
    5. Cleaned out an organized all of the files and cabinets from previous teachers in my classroom

    No I didn't.

    I washed the windows and they look worse now that before I washed all of them.

    I cleaned and cleaned and cleaned.

    But I didn't get big school projects done.

    You know, I was all gung ho in June. I planned some things, cleaned house, etc. Then I became lazy! lol I am totally not motivated. I have all these ideas floating around in my head and I write them down everywhere but nothing feels together yet. I am going on vacation this Saturday (yay!) for a week and when I get back--BAM--it's off to work I go. So maybe it's okay I am not doing anything?

    Still working on it! I cleaned out my sewing room - I've finally admitted that I don't have time to do crafts any more, so I'm having a big garage sale. While I was in jury duty today I worked on some documentation for a big project I'm planning with my classes this fall, and I spruced up a couple of PowerPoints. I still need to sit down and calendar my year, because I'm making a few changes.

    As far as losing 16 pounds...nah. But we did join a gym, and I'm exercising 100% more than I was before! :)
