Almost Summer

This week is standardized testing. For some reason I always dread this, although for me as a teacher it’s actually fairly nice. I sit around with pages of editing—I get to edit while I “teach.” And when I need a break from editing, I get to read. What a bummer! :) And once testing is over, I’m done. Summer Break! Imagine me doing the happy dance. Although...I do have to sew Shakespeare costumes, finish up some serious yardwork, and reorganize/clean every cupboard in the house—they are currently white-washed sepulchers. Hmmm. Teaching sounds much more fun.


  1. Oh yeah. I got out of classes (which really bums me out) but now I have finals..woot...not. Well, sort of..

    Have fun!

  2. First of all--New Follower! *waves*

    I found you from your comment at Elana Johnson's blog, and I love connecting with other writers so I had to stop by and say hi!

    Glad to hear you have a nice week ahead of you--and that you actually enjoy editing. I thought I would, but I do NOT--which is bad because my agent has me on a tight deadline right now. I should probably be editing instead of blog hopping. Eh well. :)

    Nice to meet you and I look forward to reading more of your posts!

  3. Welcome Shannon and Laurel! It's great to have you join us. I hope you enjoy the blog.

  4. We are finishing school too. I also have some serious yard work to do, sewing, cleaning, and other projects to pay attention to. Everything that looked like so much fun during the school year, looks like a lot of work now.

  5. Hmm, well I finished finals about a month ago. Cool, eh?
