I know I'm not a teacher, but you know that saying:
"No more Homework, No more Books, No more Teachers’ Dirty Looks"? Well, someone needs to make one up for the teachers (and their assistants), because who knew what a relief summer is to those who work in a school. I guess I had never thought about it before. Boy, am I relieved.
School's been out for nearly a week now and I have lost all motivation and self discipline (what little I had anyway). I had amazing plans starting with the first week off. I was going to exercise every day. So far, I'm zero for four. I was going to "spring clean" and scrub a room a day and since I was going to do the family room and dining room as one room I was going to have a sparkling house by the end of the week. You know, top to bottom, left to right, wiping everything including baseboards. So far, I did scrub the bathrooms, which look amazing, and I tidied up my room and cleaned out my night stand, purged my dresser and closet and I washed one window, and Becky washed the other. But I have yet to dust and vacuum anything in the house. Oh, and I did spend an afternoon helping Sam purge his toys, still not done yet.
There is a huge fear lurking in the back of my head. I'm going back to work in 2.5 months and it's going too fast. So today I have shut down for a few hours. I went and "cleaned out" the Activity Days closet at the church, but since then all I've done is lay on my bed.
Also I have worked two mornings at the Rec this week and I'm changing my evening to Thursdays so I get to go to the Rec and work again tonight.
So far, not the summer I pictured.
Some days I wave.
