Summer is quickly approaching.
School is almost out. My students have four days left this week, and my son only has three. Of course, those of us sporting the fantastic label of teacher have just a few extra days. This being my very first end of the year I am not quite sure what we do during those last two days when there are no students to teach, but I suspect that I will soon find out.
In some ways I am slightly dreading summer. I realize that this is crazy, but crazy and I are pretty close. Most people would be thrilled that they were going to have 10 weeks off (with pay!) to do whatever their little heart desires. And of course I'm going to love it.
The thing is that I get a little crazy and annoying if I'm not busy and don't have projects or goals. I really do not want to drive my poor husband crazy during the summer months for the rest of our lives. I mean he loves me, and he's amazing, but even I know that you can only push one person so far before they snap. I don't want to be the recipient of said snap.
I had thought I'd have a project in the new house we'd be buying. Picking out paint, painting the beautiful walls, stenciling stuff, curtains, windows, the works! Since that particular project is being put on hold now I'm at loss as to what I will occupy my time with this summer. I mean, we're still working on Project Baby, so there is always that. ;) I've pondered a variety of things I can do this summer, and I've compiled them into a nice list below.
* visit all of the neat bronze statues in Edmond and take my picture with them*
*drink coffee at every independently owned coffee shop in the OKC metro area*
*try fried pies*
*finally do my great macaroni and cheese taste off*
*test drive expensive cars that I can't afford*
*read A LOT of books*
*organize my linen closet & various other areas of my house (not high on the list)*
*grow an herb garden*
*hike in Oklahoma's state parks*
*paint my headboard and footboard*
*do something (anything) with our dresser*
*get control of my inner snarky girl before she ruins things*
Hopefully these projects will keep me pretty busy.
Do you like to stay busy, or are you okay with downtime?
