School's out

Today is the last day of school!

Actually, yesterday was the last day for students. Today is a "teacher's workday" and I'll be answering phones in the front office and cleaning out my desk for the summer. After today, I'm free until August!



In other good news, I'm mostly well again after that awful virus. I still have a little congestion in my chest, but overall I feel human again. About time, too.

Have a great day, everyone!

  1. I bet that the novelty of these long summer vacations has not worn off yet. Enjoy! You have earned it and I am glad to hear you are feeling much better. Have you got plans for how to spend these leisurely weeks?

    1. I'll be starting off the summer preparing to go to our niece's wedding. It's a 6 hour drive away, in the mountains of North Carolina, and I have to find a dress, get one of Gregg's suits dry cleaned, book a hotel room, arrange for pet care, etc. But after that, I plan to do house projects all summer! And no, the novelty has not worn off yet. I'm super excited!

  6. Great news indeed! I have read your reply to YP's question. A wedding, and a new dress - that would be my kind of beginning of the summer vacation!

    1. I'm excited about the wedding and the new dress, but less so about the amount of money it's costing us to make it to this wedding. BUT...it's our favorite niece, and we love her and we love her mother (Gregg's sister) so we feel like we must attend. I'm sure it's going to be beautiful, though. :)

  7. Glad you're feeling better!

    So, at the end of the school year, do play Alice Cooper's "Schools Out" really loud and dance around? I probably would if I were a teacher.
