What I Am Looking Forward to This Week #6

Why, hello there!  It is time for another edition of What I Am Looking Forward to This Week, the post where I, um . . . discuss what I am looking forward to in the coming week.  Here is what has me excited about the next seven days:

Monday June 23
My World Cup team, the Netherlands, takes on Chile tomorrow in their last game in group play.  It looks like the Flying Dutchmen have cemented a place in the knock-out round, but a win against Chile could put us on the right foot in the second stage.  Sadly, I might miss the second half of the game because I start my summer library hours tomorrow, but I will be checking the score periodically throughout the morning.

Tuesday June 24
This week is $1 Flip Flop week at Old Navy, so I plan to brave the crowds and cash in my Super Cash on some cheap and cheerful sandals.  When you live in California, you can never have too many Flip Flops.  We only have two seasons—spring and summer—and both are sandal weather.

Wednesday June 25
By the middle of the week, I hope to have finished the second season of Orange is the New Black.  I had wanted to finish the series last week, but I was swamped with professional development work and some tasks for my summer classes.  No spoilers in the comments, guys!

Thursday June 26
The U.S. takes on Germany is World Cup play on Thursday.  Since we won our first match and eked out a draw against Portugal, today is D-Day.  Hopefully, we will be able to hold Germany to draw or at least keep the goal differential low and Ghana and Portugal will draw as well.  America has a fighting chance to move on to the second stage of the tournament.  Stay positive, dudes, stay positive!

Friday June 27
By the end of the work week, I hope to have gotten caught up on my June TBR, at least in number if not by title.  Currently, I three books behind on my June TBR and seven books off of my Good Reads 2014 reading goal.  Since I will not be working crazy hours and will still be commuting to work, I should have more time to get caught up on my reading.  Here’s hoping I am able to inch my way closer to actually completing TBR!

Saturday June 28
By next weekend, I plan to be caught up on some writing projects I have been working on.  I have a hard deadline that is only a few months away so I need to buckle down and get to writing. 

Sunday June 29
It’s been so long since I have been able to step back from teaching and just relax that I am actually looking forward to spend my Sunday doing . . . nothing!
