No School!

School is out. The day was gorgeous. I was free.
The day is now done, but I'm left feeling like I accomplished things and like I'm one step closer to something...to what, I can't quite figure out. I'm one step closer to being more responsible, to being organized...I don't know. It was a very productive day, though. I think that is maybe why I like Spring so much. The fresh, warm air with a cool breeze makes me want to get things done. So I followed my urge to do some spring cleaning. I made a list and accomplished everything on it. I picked up my paycheck, ran some errands, cleaned my room, wrote some letters, cleaned other areas of the house, found all of my borrowed school books and returned them to the college, and a myriad of other little things that needed to be done. I got it all done while the day was nice and warm.
Around the time I got home from all of my running around and had not much else to do, the temperature started to drop and you could hear thunder in the distance...so, since I had no school or work, I watched a movie with Peggy while I colored in my princess coloring book, then curled up on the couch with a good book. Then, later in the evening, Sarah came over and Bob, Jimmy, Sarah, and I played card games. We played a very close game of Rook in which Bob took the last hand and started whooping in victory before I showed him the scores, which showed that although he had gotten 500 points, I had gained just enough points that hand to be at 510 points. It was beautiful. Then we played a game of Spades. We never did finish that game, although, when we quit, Jimmy and I were winning.
All in all, it was a great day. First I was productive, then I relaxed and enjoyed the evening. I'm so very glad that school is done.
