12 More

12 more days left with the kids until the end of August. It's beautiful.

Growing up, I was always so excited for summer vacation. Would you believe it if I told you that the teachers and other assorted school staff actually look forward to it more than the kids.

Unfortunately, I'm 12 months (boyfriend hates when I complain about this), but I became a school psychologist to have summers off. Then I moved to Maryland, where they believe psychologists are required year round. Whatev.

It's really not hard so I shouldn't complain. The hours are a little better, and I don't have to do much of anything. Plus, the pay makes up for most of it and about 3.5 weeks of vacation time helps even more. Okay, after reading over this, it doesn't seem to bad at all so I won't complain about it again (until at least June).

Since I'm into complaining lately, I have one more subject to touch on. The Blue Angels; beautiful and fascinating. But not when you're trying to take a nap after work and it sounds like a bomb is going off outside of your window. I came home today with a sore throat (which started last night) and full feeling ears. I'm crossing my fingers that it's not a cold. Unfortunately, I can't even blame it on allergies, since I don't have them.

Please wish me a germ-free sleep and that I wake up refreshed and feeling fine tomorrow. I have a big week and weekend coming up and being sick would really suck.

I thought one of the perks of having to work with kids all year is having a summer vacation. I can't believe you don't get one! I'm sending you germ-free vibes...you can't get sick right at the beginning of your "no-kids time"!
