I Did It! I REALLY Did it!!!!!!!

At 6:28 this evening I inserted the last page of the last section of my architectural history notebook into its binder. I'm so proud of myself. Even though the notebook is not due until Tuesday (aka The Last Day of AH) I forced myself to get it done early. It feels so invigorating to have this huge weight off my shoulders.

And I do mean "huge weight". This sucker is 176 pages long. 176 pages of architecture, art, and furnishings dating back from ancient Egypt all the way up to 18th century America. Yes, I arrived at that number by including all the tab dividers, cover sheets, photos, works-cited pages, and other filler. Sue me. The binder is 2 inches think and I printed everything on card stock. As a result, it weighs about as much as a small house pet.

And since the notebook is done, I'm going to treat myself. Yes, tomorrow, I am going to put on real clothes and (gasp!) I'm going to leave the house! There is a 50% off coupon from Joann Superstore burning a hole in the bottom of my purse. And it expires TOMORROW! I think I will go down there and treat myself to that mirror I've been wanting for
the downstairs bathroom!!!!
