Today is the last day of school. Woo hoo! I have about 20 finals to grade and then I can turn in my grades for the year. The check-out list won't take long, and I will close my door on another year.
Yesterday, I was suffering a spring cold. After having the heart monitor taken off in the afternoon, I slept for a couple of hours and felt almost alive again.
Tonight the girls are coming home to clean through the closets of their old rooms. They are sorting through the momentos of childhood, packing away some and getting rid of others. The plan is to make room for L to move in for the summer. Her lease is up the end of June and while she will return to the same school to teach next year, she isn't sure where she wants to live. (CG might have something to do with that indecision.)
On the other hand, K is probably concerned that she'll inherit boxes of things that she may not want any more. She's probably worried with a wedding in the future, the Mr. and I just might decide to load up some of her things and let her store them for awhile. (The thought has crossed my mind!)
It will be good to clean through their old rooms and get rid of some of the old clothes and clutter. Summer seems like a good time to lighten the load of "stuff" we have accumulated. I'm not sure I would have chosen to start it the first evening of the last day of school, but the sooner I get to it-- the sooner I can spend my summer doing what I want.
So what are the plans for the summer?
Reading, reading, reading... and getting back to running. (I need all these medical tests to be done first!) Actually, I haven't planned much further than that. It is a luxury not to have every minute scheduled.
At 4:00 today, my summer vacation officially begins. And at 4:05 the closet cleaning begins. Lazy days of summer? Those will have to wait until next week!
