I don't think that students have any real sense that we are counting down until summer vacation long before they are. But we are. I put the calendar up on the wall in March and I have been crossing out the weeks and counting down the days since there were 67 days to go.

And then it was this week! And I finished grading my exams! I cleaned and packed away my room! I turned in my radio and keys! And then I did my happy dance!

I don't like to talk about work here, because well, who cares about work. Who really wants to read about someone else's problems at work? Be a big girl, pull up your big-girl-pants, and find a solution.No one is interested. And it's unprofessional. 

But I love summer vacation! Last summer there was a World Trip. We went all over and visited some well-loved and missed friends. This summer is looking to be more low-key. We have been saying that for years, but this time, it will come true!

Right now? We have plans for the next two weeks... and then my lovely Mom is coming to visit. And there is a bridal shower and a wedding this summer. And my amazing sister turns 26 and we are celebrating like it's hot!!!!!!! There might be a bachelorette party later on too.

See? Low-key! Do you know what that means? I AM GOING TO QUILT ALL SUMMER! Those are my big plans! Doesn't that sound lovely?!!!

So I'm sorry that when you graduated from college and got a job you were not smart enough to realize that by not being a teacher or working in the schools you would not have a summer vacation anymore. I am. I am sorry you were not inspired by a teacher to teach and continue getting your summer off. And for that, I am going to rub it in your face. Today, I slept in until 8 am. Normally I woke up at 5:30. NOT ANYMORE!

Sorry to gloat. Have a wonderful summer. Even if you have to work through most of it.
