Recap and looking towards summer

I just got to thinking about this past school year. Students' last day is tomorrow and we finish up on Monday. We started off with 6 furlough days. However, the school year was bumpy - not because of my class. My students this year were a great group. However, this year included:

  • a heart attack and a diagnosis of type 2 diabetes
  • my mother's continued decline in health, resulting in placement in a nursing facility
  • a broken tailbone
  • shingles
Enough already. On the flip side:
  • I am going to be a grandmother this fall.
So this summer, I am going to:
  • take it easy
  • read books
  • exercise
  • spend a week at the beach
  • knit
What are you doing this summer?


  1. I am going to be ME centered!! All about Me! :) There is some beach time, grandbaby time, stock learning time, sister and Mom time and of course the all important FRIEND time!!

  2. Congratulations, Grandma-to-be! My year has been pretty bumpy too, but with in-school obstacles instead. We go until June 23. Right now it feels like May will never end. My summer plans include knitting, reading, traveling, and mostly relaxing!

  3. Hi Cathy - I sure hope your summer is relaxed and rejuvenating!

    Joe and I are off on a driving trip. We have no idea, really, how long we'll be. Today was a long drive - up to Greenville, SC and tomorrow we hit the Blue Ridge Parkway.

    Just in time for storms! :) So we'll maybe park somewhere for the weekend!

    More later -

    Love you,
