Labor Day List

Here is the plan for today.

Eat breakfast (pineapple upside-down cake yougurt and a banana. Yum!)

Work out. I've been slacking lately, so it's time to get back into the routine and dust off my 30 Day Shred DVD.

Take a shower and wash my hair (with my new shampoo).

Paint! I haven't painted in a few days, and I need to keep up on it. I started a painting last week, but I don't really like the way it's looking so far. But considering it's my first real painting in color, I guess it doesn't look too bad. I'll post pictures soon.

Go on a motorcycle ride with Derek - possible our las tone ever. Yes, Derek has decided to sell his bike, and we've got someone interested in it. The guy just needs to get approved for the loan and we'll have to say farewell to the bike. It' kind of bittersweet - we both new Derek wouldn't keep it forever, and it'll be great to get rid of that debt! But it's kind of sad because I know Derek enjoyed riding it, and I liked riding with him on it occasionally too. I just got to remember that we're getting rid of all that debt! Soon we'll be debt free except for the house, and that will be a wonderful feeling.

Work on this marriage workbook that our pastor gave us. We recently had a marital counseling session. Since it's been a year since we got married, we thought a few follow-up sessions would be helpful. To me counseling is more of a preventative measure than treatment when something is wrong, so we're going to try to strengthen our marriage, so hopefully we won't have any big problems in the future! Plus we've been thinking we could have a review on communication differences between men and women - you know, those infamous misunderstandings!

Make a really nice dinner for Derek - I bought fillet mignon, and I'm going to try making it! I'm a little scared, because I've never made something like fillet mignon before, but I'll figure it out. Then I'll make biscuits, baked potatoes, and maybe some sort of vegetable, like one of those ten cans of green beans I bought on Saturday!

Watch Star Wars! We all love Star Wars in my family, and I haven't watched it in forever, so Derek agreed to a marathon with me!

Gracious, that's quite a list! I better get going on it. What is everyone else doing for Labor Day? Enjoy the day off!

Wow! What a day! I hope you have fun working out, painting, and watching Star Wars! That's a really good way to look at counseling (preventative instead of treatment,) and I am sure it will pay off in the long run!
