That Will Smith knew what he was rappin’ about. It’s all I can do to put on pants these days. I have summers off, on account of my day job. I am a teacher. Ahoy. I teach. So for the entire two weeks of June that didn’t include work days, I have done a whole lot of nothing.
Do I have regrets? No. Not even one little letter.
In fact, I have accomplished much with my nothingness. Think The Nothing from The Never Ending Story. That thing made all sorts of impact leaving greatness in his wake. (Terrible. But Great).
Read no less than 4 books
Exercised regularly, still keeping my 6 aye em routine
Visited an ocean
Moved over 4,000 pounds of bread (ok, I had a little help from some awesome youth kids for this one)
Listened to some new music- indulgent, but new- Megan Trainer & Sam Hunt
Caught up on So You Think You Can Dance
Watched Lorelei and Luke be on again, off again, and then on again to infinity
Snuggled my kids around a few good movies
Dated The Man
Went to a different state- twice
Began editing a new book. Yep! A new one!
Spoke before about 40 Rotarians to procure some funds and community involvement in my classroom this coming year
Led 8-10 kiddos in an alternative VBS- this year, we are going into the city to do random acts of kindness. No crafts or snacktime for us. Except Slurpees. There are always Slurpees.
Started a new Instagram feed. Follow me here.
So basically, I’m living each minute however I feel like it. I’m Julia Roberts- a fly by the seat of my pants, moment to moment. That’s me.
