    As graduate school finishes up for the summer on Wednesday, I started thinking about all the things I wanted to accomplish this summer before heading back to school. School completely absorbed July, so I have until Aug 26 to get to the list! What's your list? Have you accomplished it? What do you still have left?

    - Go to the BEACH/take a vacation! (going next week to my mom's condo at the Jersey Shore... phew!)
    - My doctor appointments that I try to do over the summer. This year I want to try a naturopathic doctor to help naturally with some of my ailments. Most importantly, a healthy immune system because I was sick almost the whole year last year.
    - Vacuum/deep clean the inside of my car. I got a dog in May... enough said.
    - Organize my closet and get it ready for work. I moved here in April and never organized my clothes... made it challenging to get ready for work!
    - Finish reading my "for fun" list: 1st Game of Thrones, Wild by Cheryl Strayed, and ones I haven't started yet!
    - Get into my walk/jog routine with the dog. It's been spotty.
    - Go out and have fun!

    What's on your list?

    I had grad school all throughout work & the classes lasted my entire summer & a new one just started up. Now TOMORROW's my 1st day of work again! :mad:

    I'm glad I had a chance to go on a few nice day trips to some cities about a little over an hour away. I only went to the movies 1x. I did get a good amount of shopping & dining out, that's for sure! I got new tires for my car & had to get my computer fixed, so those were unexpected expenses.

    I went back to work yesterday. (I've been on vacation since May 11th.)

    I didn't get ANY of my outside work accomplished this summer. I made the mistake of starting on the inside stuff, so when the heat wave hit I couldn't work outside. I also couldn't organize the garage. No air in there. I did have time to work on some crafts, and I also spent time with friends and my mom.

    I did get a lot accomplished. I installed a lot of shelves and reorganized just about the entire house. I also finalized my divorce and went on a vacation with some friends from work.
