The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a chance to share news, a post to recap the past week on your blog, showcase books and things received, and share news about what is coming up on the blog for the week ahead. To get in on the Sunday funday, see the rules here: Sunday Post Meme.

Thursday was my official last day of the school year. I was ready to leave Wednesday afternoon except for the final day formalities that must be done. It was incredibly nice to have an hour and a half lunch with my colleagues and just eat and talk like normal people. For the record, we have less than a 20 minute lunch every day, and that is spent wolfing our food down and discussing any issues in our hallway after we walk our students to lunch and before they send them back 5 minutes early.
Anyway, SCHOOL IS OUT! I signed up for summer school but didn’t get picked. I’m a little bummed because that’s a 13th paycheck, but for once I get the summer to myself (minus all of my training and curriculum writing days). After the year we had, and the one we all know is coming, I really need this time to destress and recharge. This year really got to me.
The man was gone all week, and I missed him even more for it. I picked him up yesterday at the airport and Baby and I crawled all over him with kisses.
Also, this lovely was unearthed from my first year. Yes, those are original cups, not reproductions. I drank out of them all the time as a kid.

A while back I took advantage of Book Riot’s BOGO 1/2 off and free shipping. My package finally came: four bookish shirts, a tote and a smaller zip bag. I love them! I’ll post pictures whenever they are all back together again because I’m at “the vacation house” as the man refers to his home. 🙂
