I love holiday weekends! Right now, instead of trying desperately to get my squirrley students to pay attention to the symbolism in The Great Gatsby*, I'm sleeping in, taking Gunner to the dog park, and generally being a layabout. I love it.
School is out on June 16th! Wheee!
Over my summer break I am...
~taking a class where I spend 150 hours planning and organizing my curriculum for next year
~working as much as possible at Job 2
~HOPEFULLY traveling to Querylandia
~HOPEFULLY starting my new project
~being a kick-ass bridesmaid in my bff's wedding
~being a kick-ass guest at a really fun wedding
~going on a girls' weekend to Vegas with some of my besties
~going to SCBWI LA
~going to Costa Rica with my family to celebrate my mom's retirement
And as long as I have a teaching job waiting for me, I have just a little over 2 months for all of this fun to take place. Yeah, not the most relaxing summer ever, but when is anything I do ever RELAXING? You know how I roll...I just like to have as much fun as I possibly can. You'll never hear me complain about being bored.
So this Lazy Monday may be one of the few days in the next few months that I just have NOTHING to do...and I'm living it up. I hope you're doing the same.
Happy Memorial Day...and thank you to all of our troops and veterans (including my dad and my grandpa, a WWII POW) for all you do.
