Where have I been?

Apparently I've been a little MIA the last couple of weeks. I apologize, I need to make more of an effort to update my blog with little life updates. Since my last post my boss has left for Antarctica so I've been really busy at work. And my younger brother, Kirk, has come home to visit for Spring Break. Can we just talk about how painful it is to be out of school for the first time since I was 4 and not have a Spring Break? Oh well, at least I got one day of skiing in instead of my usual 5 days for Spring Break. I have a crazy busy week coming up, which I'm really excited both for work and for play. But this means that I have a lot of work to get done this weekend. Did I mention this is the first weekend I've been home in over a month? Here is what I need to do and why:
  • Clean my car - because my mom's best friend, my aunt Kathy is coming to visit from Portland, Maine on Wednesday and is going to use my car for the 11 days she is here.
  • Clean my room - because I haven't cleaned it in months, and I did some rearranging when I set up my home office downstairs last night.
  • Do laundry - because I'm attending a conference next week with Natural Step on sustainability and I need more clothing options. I have to wait until this afternoon when Kirk leaves to get access to the laundry room.
  • Clean Kirk's room - because my best friend from high school, Jon Grotz, is visiting from Washington next weekend and will be crashing in there. Kirk just got a new bed so we need to set that up as well.
  • Overall house cleaning - because my mom likes having the house clean for guests.
So an exciting week coming up, two house visitors, a conference, maybe a day of skiing, plus I'm attending an event put on by the University of Oregon called the Sustainable Business Symposium.

I'm spending my weekend organizing and cleaning, what are you doing?

Hey Jenna! You're weekend sounds pretty exciting! I love visitors and conferences. :] Organizing and cleaning always ends up on my to-do list, yet never gets done though.

This weekend I'm heading up to New Hampshire with Campus Crusade for a retreat. Pretty stoked.

As for this summer. I wish I knew what my plans were.. I'm still not sure if I'll be here or home. I need to find a job. I'm trying to get in the habit of blogging once I get the hang of this thing. lol. There's always a start.
