Jumping for Joy!

Today was the last day of school. I've been a free woman since 12:20 today. Although the weirdness continued up until the last moment (I've told you how odd this group was), I feel like a huge weight has been lifted from my shoulders, and I'm giddy about the idea of being off work for the next 10 and a half weeks! Yippee!

I've spent the afternoon doing a little shopping for our trip, and while I was out I stopped for lunch at Quizno's - I'm hooked on their Tuscan Turkey sandwich. Now I'm home with my feet up on the sofa. The birds are chirping, and there's a gentle breeze blowing. It's the perfect afternoon.

I've got a week to prepare for our trip to Hawaii as we leave a week from Sunday. My husband's brother will be house-sitting for us and caring for our dog as Buffy has worn out her welcome at my parents' house - she peed on the dining room carpet while we were staying there. Ugh! Hopefully, Charlie will enjoy his time here with her. She's really very good - especially when she's sleeping! ;-)

Sigh...

Good times ahead!

YEAH!!! I've been trying to send you good vibes to get you through the last few days of school. Now the key is to NOT think of school until the day before you have to be back.

Don't forget Boots and Kimos for breakfast one morning. ;)
