Ready for Summer Break

30 05 2012

The sun is shining and I’m at my desk typing this post. If I wasn’t typing this post, I’d be doing something else – like working on my literary analysis of Jack London’s White Fang or editing four poems that are due this week. Instead, I’m glancing wistfully out the window and griping to you – my faithful readers (what? Are there about 5 of you now?)

Even though my youngest son has been home from college for three weeks, I am still doing work. Even though my older son will get done with his junior year at the same time my students at the middle school finish, I will still have homework. The biggest problem I have with being a non-traditional student is that there are very few breaks. I got mine during the Christmas season, so now there’s nothing until September.

My husband asked me, “Why don’t you just take a term off?” I’m pretty sure we can all answer that. Maybe even in unison. I want to get DONE! If I take time off, it just means that much longer before I’m done with my degree.

So, enough whining already. It must be about time for me to get back to work. Feel free to comment your own gripes or send me an encouraging word. I hope to begin posting at least once per week once I’m done with my job for the summer (June 15th – not that I’m counting down or anything!)

9 more days until the last day of school! yes, I’m counting down, I am so tired and I ‘m going to work 10 hour days most of those 9 days left… Summer is coming and once you don’t have to work all day, even if you still have school work to do, think of the free time and the sunshine that eventually will arrive in the northwest! Choosing, ah school work in the morning, rest of the day for me, reading in the afternoon while catching some rays and the rest of the day for what I want to do,today I’ll do what I want until after dinner and then I’ll do my homework. Choices, nice.

Connie-
Yes, all that so-called freedom is just 8 days away now. What I really want it to just do NOTHING AT ALL for a week! But that won’t happen because I’m finishing my May term and starting my summer term the next week. If only I wasn’t such a perfectionist…
I’m looking forward to the first of many hang-out days on June 23!

I’m hoping for at least a couple of do nothing or whatever days June 19 – 23, when the pool will be closed a couple days and then open for a light schedule and all I have to do is the deposit!
