I am a slacker, I guess

This last week of school, combined with Bob's appointments, and sharing cars, etc. has gotten to me. I did not get online this morning. It is supper time, and I have not put a meal together yet. Just two and a half more days to make it through. One full day is a field trip and the half day is a swim party. I think I can make it okay. So if you do not see me here for a day or two, it is okay, I am conserving my strength. I am reading here a little bit. I brought the classroom laundry home. It needed to be done.

@GardenGerty to me that seems much too early, I remember getting out of school in mid-June and going back after Labor Day.

I never did like those field trip days at the end of the year. But I think I was in the minority. I hope you get a good break before you start summer school.

What I got out of this year, because of the contractors needing me here was the field day, which is not fun for me. Often activities are not planned with consideration for my kiddo's ability. The swim day was really fun, because he demonstrated a new ability in the pool, and swimming is pure joy for him.

I remember those last weeks before the summer break. We have a pool close so spent a lot of time there. And we have a park about two blocks away. A lot to do around here. Hope all goes well.

Yes, the pool we use is actually owned by the district and is across the street from our building. It is called the Sports and Aquatic center. There is also a walking track there.

Pretty much things were fine. Field trip day was a lot of work but that is okay.

Just work as hard as you need to to finish. I have over a month to go, but I don't work every day. Someone just booked me for June 24th. I kind of like to be done by then and avoid those last couple of days.

You are working at both ends of the pendulum, every day! Take some special time for Heather, all right?

It sounds like you've had a hectic week with the end of school activities and managing Bob's appointments. Taking a break to conserve your energy is completely understandable, especially with the busy schedule you're navigating.

With good leadership at school the field trip was fun.
