40 Days of Summer 

I updated my Countdown utility in the right side-bar this morning, since the wedding day has come and gone (and all went fabulously - more later). I've changed it to how many days until the start of the fall semester, and it turns out that I'm now at the 40 day mark.

Forty days to finish International Law (about 100 pages down, about 1115 to go...), with a slight interruption for Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, which should be arriving on Saturday, thanks to Amazon's Harry Potter special: shipping for day of release delivery. I pre-ordered back in December.

Forty days to finish painting the kitchen cabinets that I started two summers ago.

Forty days to reorganize the furniture now that the new massive desk has been installed in the home office.

Forty days to dig out the basement, get rid of stuff that hasn't been touched since we moved in two years ago, and organize the stuff we're keeping.

Forty days to restart my quest to get in shape, starting with getting rid of the six pounds I gained on the honeymoon. Then I can work on the extra pounds I already had.

Forty days to finish all the thank you cards from the wedding. Okay, less than that, since we should get this done in the next week or so.

Forty days to get a headstart on Wills, Estates and Trusts by reading the Examples and Explanations book. I know, I know - I might not get to this.

Forty days to get organized for fall events for OUTLaws and ACS (starting with attending the ACS National Convention at the end of July!).

Forty days to enjoy spending time with The Girl.
