The End of the Month

It’s Memorial Day Weekend, and officially, today is Memorial Day. I always preferred to acknowledge it on the 30th of May, which was the first ” Decoration Day”. Either way, I have taken thought of those who served and still do serve, and thank them for their service. It is hard to want to celebrate this in the Washington Area today, as the American Vice-President is leading the ceremony in Arlington National Cemetery. The “President” of the United States is in Japan, where he gave an award to the winner of a Sumo wrestling competition last night. All I have to say is….wow.

Tomorrow marks the last week of the month, work-wise, and I have school through the rest of the week. It’s hard for me to believe time has gone so quickly and summer vacation is around the corner. Here in “Amity”, our population is bursting at the seams. I will get through the summer, and wait patiently with Kasia, for our quiet time, which is after Labor Day.

Here’s hoping that you honored the Veteran in your life today, and enjoy the start of the summer months.

Ten Day Hiatus

You can say I was stopping to smell the roses along the way.

Work has been too good. So good, as a matter of fact, that I came home and ,outside of walking Kasia-girl, I had a hot shower, got into my pj’s and crashed to the bed. I worked 4 out of 5 days for two weeks, and, OMG, how different it is from sitting at a desk. With smaller elementary school pupils, you are up and down, and walking and moving constantly, for those of you who wonder why I was not here. Quite frankly, I was beat.

Fortunately, or unfortunately, depending on how you look at it, the school year is almost over, and as of right now, I am only working two days this week. Kasia doesn’t know quite how to behave, as I’m back with her, and now she only has to contend with the laptop in order to get her walk.

There really hasn’t been big diet splurges, except for a short stack of pancakes after church yesterday. I am due at my new doctor tomorrow for a check up and we’ll see what’s what.

I’ll tell you one thing, though.

Brownie Batter dessert hummus. OMG!

It is carried by my local Aldi store, which is a “healthy” grocery store, as opposed to the bigger chain stores. Two tablespoons are 60 calories and with a smidge of Redo-Whip on it, it’s believable to both your brain and stomach as chocolate pudding. I kid you not!

I would add more pictures, but my iPhone has conveniently had a dead battery that I needed to ship to California for, so hopefully I won’t go through the DT’s until it’s back in my hands sometime this weekend.

I’ll be on here, so those of you who normally would read my post and chat with me know I am still kicking.

Stay tuned!

Tomorrow is 11….

Eleven more days of school for my school kids,and for me.

Will I miss it? Absolutely! I am hoping that I will be able to be assigned to the same class again, or at least the same school. The experiences I have had working with the autistic and Aspergers students have really been an experience. I love it.I feel as though I am making a useful application to my life.

Don’t get me wrong:I am going to savor every second of the summer.Truly I am. But I actually admit that I’m looking forward to September.
