Summer vacation

Yesterday was my favorite day of the year. It was the last day of school.

Now, it's not for the reason you think. Yes, the end of the year (especially in 5th grade in Texas) is very stressful. Yes, the kids are raring to get out of elementary school and move onto middle school. And yes, some of them were getting on my very last nerve. But that's not why it's my favorite day of the year.

Yesterday was the day when all of summer stretched before me, when I could make plans without wasting even one hour. Everything was possible yesterday. Write a whole book? Yes, I could without wasting a day. Walk everyday? You bet. Paint the whole house (cringe)? Sure.

So yesterday was the day I laid out my goals. We'll see how good I do.

1) Write every day on the new book. (I have a page count I'd like to reach, but it could be potentially embarrassing, so I won't document it here.)

2) Clean my house every day. (again, a potentially embarassing time limit here)

3) Walk every day.

4) Paint my sunroom, hall and bedroom.

5) Read a novel a week.

6) Road trip! (I am a strange person who loves road trips, don't care where. Just put me in my Scion and let's go!)

So keep me honest, would you?
