Most of the time I'm a last minute kind of girl. Papers, lesson plans, cleaning, organizing, phone calls...whatever the task, I stand firmly in my belief, "If it weren't for the last minute, nothing would get done!" But despite my last minute habits, everything always seems to get done somehow, and even better than if I had done it far in advance. I thrive on the last minute stress.
I say all that because right now I'm watching Gilmore Girls. And drinking coffee. And not going over my entire K-5 music curriculum, picking out all my program songs, figuring out what to teach when, and lesson planning for next year. Oh yes, I intended to do all that when I started my summer. But what I didn't realize was, I also planned to enjoy my time off! I enjoy those other things...but summer is for relaxing. And for the first time, I think I'm getting used to that idea. I like it!
So, here's to many more days of coffee, Gilmore Girls, reading, swimming, laughing, hanging out with family and friends, and...summer vacation!
