It seems like lately a lot of people have been asking what my summer plans are. I know they are being friendly, and perhaps they are daydreaming about summer due to the cold weather. But seriously, it’s stressing me out! I don’t KNOW what my summer plans are…because as usual, I don’t know what my fall plans are. So if I am not certain (I know nothing is really certain, but I always feel that my life is more temporary than many of our friends) what my fall plans are, I can’t know my summer plans…can I?
I do know that I want Chris and I to take a fun vacation somewhere. Just not sure what the budget will be. And probably in July. I am very interested in a cruise to Alaska, but I would also love somewhere beach-y and tropical. As much as I love cruising, I don’t have to cruise every summer.
I also know I want to go somewhere for a teaching training workshop. I’m leaning towards Kansas again because of price, location, and quality.
I know I will play a lot of weddings. And I want to add a day of teaching at home after school lets out.
But seriously people, let’s not add to my stress levels! (Yes, I’m nearly always stressed. I really just need to come to terms with the fact that stress is a genetic problem.)
(Someday I should write a blog post compared my own life to Natalie Portman’s in Black Swan. No, I’m not crazy, but I do occasionally pick at /chew my cuticles. Practically the same, right? And my constant striving for perfection in my life…and failing…and going crazy and killing people?)
Reminiscing about last summer…when it was hot…and there was much less snow on the ground.
