Count down

10...9...8...7...6...5...4...3...2...1...I just looked at the calendar and realized that in 10 days, I have to go back to work!

This month is flying by. We did have an amazing week up at Tony & Dona's in Minnesota even with the unbelievable heat. They have made their home into a sanctuary that anyone would want to make into a destination for relaxing. Had loads of fun junking and antiquing with Dona. We have many more shops to investigate next year. Stopped in Minneapolis to have breakfast with Lee and Marcy. They live in the Lyndale area which is an older section of Minneapolis. Absolutely beautiful area. Interesting shops and restaurants with character. We went to the French Market Bakery which was scrumptious just walking through the door to smell the fresh baked breads. They have lots of organic and vegan choices included in a huge menu. I had the eggs benedict, but the french toast served on a table next to us was so yummy looking. Our trip home was a fast 6 hours from there. This just means that a run up to see Dona or Lee is really just a day trip if I want to zip up one more time before work starts again.

Home again. Grilling out is almost a daily event. Meeting up with friends is always great. We have been chillin' at home a lot, but forced relaxation is not necessarily a bad thing at all.

So am I ready to go back to the office? Not really, but when it happens, it is good to know that scheduling and updating CUM files is already done. Starting school is going to be a piece of cake this year. I am really not dreading it at all. What can I say, I love working at my school.
