Richard returned today from a brief trip to Ruston to pick up some items we're inheriting and relocating to our house, so we now have boxes of items from his room at his parents' house, two artificial Christmas trees, lots of books, and who knows what else that are now our property. I am excited about most of it because we ended up with several items of sentimental value, but what we are realizing lately is that neither of us is very good at making the most of our space. For example, we thought our pantry was full of food and supplies, but our housekeeper helped organize it, and now everything is organized and neat looking. I thought we could handle our own organization, but what I am quickly realizing is that we would probably be better off to have someone help us at first, and we can observe what they do and try to mimic it on our own.
I'm allowing myself to put off the task of organizing because I want to make sure I do well on my midterm Friday morning, but then it's game on. We're expecting a few visitors this weekend before the Cane Field Classic (a trail run through, you guessed it, sugar cane fields), then we'll have overnight guests the following weekend. Also, our new bedroom suite is coming on the 17th! Looking ahead to next week, it's going to be a busy one between school, work, volunteering at Hollydays for Junior League, and getting ready for our visitors. I'm excited to be loved and to have plenty to do, but there are quite a few preparations to make in the next week and a half. Not long after that, I'll be preparing for my trip to Georgia. I am definitely going to need to work some naps into the schedule.

It'll practically be Halloween by the time I get back to Louisiana, but some good news is that I ordered my Halloween costume today. I will neither confirm nor deny that my dog and I have the same costume.
Something that made today great: I think I did well on the lab portion of my statistics midterm!
Time I woke up: 9:10 am...going in the wrong direction here, but on the bright side, I got almost 9 hours of sleep last night!
