If you don't have kids, what do you do over the summer? I ask because for the first time in 15 years I'm considering not applying for summer school. I could use the money, but I think I just need a break. If I teach, I get only a few weeks off and after the appts like the dentist, etc. that I put off until summer, and the pd's I do to get my hours out of the way, I don't end up with much of a break. My concern is, that I won't know what to do with myself! I take my dog to the park every day and have a whole stack of books to read. I don't have the money to travel or anything. Maybe start some kind of volunteer work-I've been wanting to do that for a while now. So I'm wondering what other people typically do.
