You’ll never guess what I was doing at 5 AM on this lovely Sunday morning. Not sleeping. Not getting an amazing workout in. No, I was making applesauce…
Why? Well, I was already up and figured it wouldn’t be a bad idea to start getting some things knocked off my to-do list. Also on the agenda? Church, a treat from Duchess, an emergency grocery store run, shopping at the mall, and dinner with the family. Maybe even a bike ride through the river valley if I have enough energy left. Not the most relaxing of Sundays, but it’s my last free day before I leave for HLS on Thursday, so I’d like to get as much as I can done so that I’m not running around like a headless chicken by the time Wednesday rolls around. Although honestly… I probably will be anyways. Such is the life of a procrastinator
And on that note, I’ll leave you with some great links to read in case you find yourself with a few free moments. Hope you guys are haven’t w wonderful Sunday, and I’ll see you tomorrow!
