    So, what's the very first thing you'll do when school's out?! I'm going to pamper myself all week w/ a manicure & pedicure & a trip to the hair salon. I'll get a cool, refreshing green tea smoothie from Jamba Juice & browse my favorite shopping mall w/ my boyfriend.

    Our last teacher workday was May 31st, so I've been out for a bit. However, the first thing I did was sleep in...until 9 a.m. :p I spent 3.5 hours in a spa where I got highlights put in my hair. I had two stylists working on my hair and drinks whenever I wanted them. Ahhh, it was nice....expensive, but nice.

    I start Summer courses a few days later, but sleep in and lay around in my PJ's all day is the first order of business.

    SLEPT IN!!!! Then I picked up a novel I've been wanting to read. I also made all of my doctors' appointments that I never get around to during the school year.

    Cheers to summer!

    My last day is tomorrow. I'll spend the next few days packing for my first trip to Europe (London and Paris!!) for my 10th wedding anniversary. We leave a week from tomorrow!

    Wow! I can't believe it's finally time!

    I *wish* I could sleep in. My body just won't let me anymore.

    My first day off I went to Curves for a good workout. I weeded in my yard. Then to finish I had a tropical drink in my pool and got some sun.

    Overall, a great day!

    Kelly :)

    We have also been out since the end of May and I have been a slug. Sleeping until 9am, going to the gym, soaking up the sun by the pool, and spending too much time online! ;)

    My FINAL grad classes started yesterday, and boy is it going to be a busy one!!! :(

    I'm so jealous! I was starting the process of looking into going this summer, but I won't be doing it this year. I'm a huge tennis fan & I was going to cruise to London on the Queen Mary 2 to Wimbledon & figured I'd swing by Paris too. One summer, I'm going to do it!

    Have a great time!

    The first thing I'll do is clean my house! My husband has been deployed for 4 months and should be coming home any time after Friday, hopefully within two weeks!! That means, I need to put away all the clean clothes I've piled on his side of the bed and make room for his shoes by the door (which means moving a few of the 16 pairs of mine-whoa...I didn't realize it was so many!)

    I had also started my summer graduate courses by the time school got out, so I am working on those. I slept in a little, read a book, went shopping, and have enjoyed just being lazy! It's been great.

    Me, too! I only get two weeks off between the school years, so I'll be sleeping in, seeing the dentist, dermatologist, and OB-GYN. To me, that's even better than the spa!

    Hopefully, I'll spend some time in the garden, at the lake, and shopping as well. :D

    I started my summer morning walking regemine with Mom. When I came home I went back to bed for a nap. Since then I've been cleaning, catching up on DVDs, reading, and getting ready for my summer travels.

    I just finished today, and the rest of June is devoted to packing and moving. July is my vacation month to Minnesota and Nashville!

    My last day is the 21st with students then we have a make up staff development day on the 22nd. After that....my daughters and I have a mega huge dance recital the 23 and 24th, so we have dress rehersal, then a Saturday matinee, then a Saturday Evening show, then a Sunday matinee.

    After that, I plan to spend the month of July at my parents since my dad was just put in a nursing home and I don't know how much longer I have with him.

    August will be spent driving my daughter to dance lessons and prepping my classroom for the start of school in the last week of August!

    We decided last minute to surprise my family who were camping 7 hours away. So, as soon as I turned in my keys we put our camping gear in the car and drove for 7 hours. It was a wonderful trip, though a bit stressful in execution.
