How did you spend the last day of August?

Asked by etignotasanimum (3374points) August 31st, 2010

Just as the title says, how did you spend your day? Has it gone as you expected? I expected my first day back at school to go nicely, with scenes of me walking like Travolta to “Stayin’ Alive”. Instead, I walked normally and spent a fun day in class next to an undeclared English major/Classics minor, whom I find interesting.

The last day of August here was also the first day of school. :) My oldest two left in the morning, and my youngest went to kindergarten after lunch. I think I am going to love having the house to myself five afternoons a week!

I took a shower, took a nap, baked some chocolate chip cookies, read for a while, and enjoyed the peace and quiet! After the kids came home and we hung out for a bit, I made pork fried rice for dinner.

Then, my daughter taught us all this game she learned in PE. It’s called Freeze, Floor, Ignore and is sort of a variation of Freeze Dance. She even got my husband to play, and we were all cracking up. I bet we put on a good show for the neighbors, since we were right out in the back yard!

Now the kids are in bed and I am thinking of making cinnamon rolls to surprise everyone at breakfast.

I can’t believe it’s the last day of August already. If life really does go faster as you get older, I’m gonna be seriously annoyed. I spent today laying around reading, because it was too hot and humid to be doing anything else, and I was feeling really light headed.

Rode my bike to town for breakfast, then a morning and afternoon swim separated by Fluthering and reading. A perfect nearly end of sumer vacation day.

Still on summer break, so I basically did nothing.

MacBean's avatar

I forgot I took two Lortab and took two more, so I slept for most of the day. And now I’m watching Toy Story 3 for the first time.

I went to see my mom. And, she needed some money and we went to the bank. Cleaned house. Played on the computer. Had a long walk with Sadie. Watched Bones. Now, back on the computer.

Running around like crazy and packing… I leave for school tomorrow. Very stressful day

SeventhSense's avatar

Sweating over auction purchases that I can’t afford but I can’t afford not to purchase because I have to get inventory. I’m getting stressed over money. Nothing new but it comes in waves.

I finished a big freelance job and sent my final invoice. Chill time. Or it would be, except that now I’m behind on two others.

Eating a delicious mom prepared meal with my sweetie, savoring a warm slow shower, watching one of my favorite series (Deadwood) while getting a rub down and falling asleep in the crook of my sweetie’s arm.
