    I'm going to try to get my flu shot on Sunday if I can find a walk-in so I can take Monday off due to "flu shot side effects". My aides can run the class so I don't feel guilty taking off. I also have 31 sick days so...

    5 days to go.
    Plus a lot of students have already told me they'll be out this week since they are traveling before break officially begins. So hopefully things will be calm and quiet this week:)

    I have this feeling many schools will be quarantining after Xmas break.

    Just one more day to go....Friday is always my hardest day schedule wise, as I don't get a prep period and I have a later lunch that day. But knowing it's the last day of school for two weeks will keep me going;)

    I’ve gone to tea, gone shopping, and gone to dinner with friends. Most of them are teachers, so I had to wait j til they finished for breakfast. I also went on a date with my DH. We always eat at the same restaurant in our first date anniversary. We also went to the movies.

    I still feel more like I’m on vacation instead of retired. It’s going to take a bit to get used to the idea.

    Sleeping in is the best part of being on a break imo.
    Mostly, though, I've been running errands, organizing, cleaning...not so fun, but it feels good to get it taken care of. Hopefully the bulk of it will be done by tomorrow night. Then I can fully relax.

    Know what you don’t need the day guests arrive? You don’t need a water leak in the wall behind the toilet. :eek:
