Summer Lovin'

Don't judge, but the song Summer Nights is stuck in my head today.

I've loved this song for ages, even though I had to break it off temporarily after working in a tex-mex restaurant that had karaoke 4 nights a week... I heard Friends in Low Places and Summer Nights sung off key so many times I lost count.    I'm loving being tracked out, but July is coming up fast... too fast.

Confession time - look away, because this is just too embarrassing... I went to school this morning.  {gasp!}  I know; it's a perfectly good Sunday morning, and I went in for an hour to clean out my mailbox and see if my classroom is still as clean as I left it.  (There were rumors about a carpet-cleaning crew coming in and moving all of the furniture, but it looked ok.  Maybe they forgot to clean my carpets??)  Anywho, my room still looks intact, I tracked down my Donor's Choose package before it ended up being distributed to another class, and I watered my plants.  It felt good.  There - I said it.  It was reassuring.  

The problem is, I go back for workdays July 2.  Students arrive July 9.  While that is an entirely different month than June, I can't help but notice that June is slipping on past.  No point in dwelling on it, 'cause I'm 
going to shop and be a mom today.  Possibly exercise, but probably not.
Please give me an excuse to avoid the gym today.
My bloggiversary is coming up soon, and I'm putting together some *huge* festivities!  So far, a dozen bloggers are contributing, so keep tuned!  If you're interested in helping me celebrate, just let me know.  Enjoy your weekend!!

  2. HaHa Jen... don't be ashamed, I'm pretty sure if I had access to my classroom (which I don't) I'd be there a few times this summer. We have to totally pack EVERYTHING up and no one gets in until late July. I actually brought all bajillion boxes of my stuff home b/c my classroom is changing :/ Let's not talk about the disaster that is all of my house lol. Let me know if you need help with the giveaway. I'd love to contribute something!! Happy (almost) blogiversy!
