To Do

We're back! Unfortunately, I won't be posting about the trip right now, because I'm way too tired and have too many other things to do. Hence, the title of the post. On the agenda for this week:

32: approximate number of hours I will work this week
9: number of hours I'll be in class
4.5: number of hours I'll spend in the car, commuting
1: book review left to write
120: pages left to read for aforementioned book review
180: other pages (in 3 separate books) I need to read
7: hours I'll spend in meetings/church

If I can get all of this done this week, I have a prayer of finishing all (ok, ok, most) of my schoolwork for the semester. If I slack off on the reading...I'm doomed. 34 more days.

I'll leave you with a picture from our trip:
