Okay, so it is Saturday....but, I was diagnosed with vertigo that pretty much feels like this:
So I'm thinking y'all will understand and give me a pass this one time!
One of my most proud moments occurred on the 14th. I know that was longer than last week, but I am not being my usual rule-following self today. My oldest son, Alex, graduated, with honors, from high school! I really hadn't given myself the time to think about the moment as there was so much chaos at the end of the school year. But, it truly is an incredible moment of reflection and pride. Couldn't be more excited about the person he has become!
The time with my boys, parents, and many carefully selected friends of my boys was priceless. I truly could spend hours sitting on the beach and never be bored. The weather was perfect!
The day after returning from vacation, Alex and I attended Old Dominion University's orientation.
My, how college has changed. I will be curious if he ever even sees a piece of paper. Everything is done digitally, which makes sense in our world. He is all registered and ready to go. My head was spinning as there is so much to keep up with, but he is a smart guy and will figure it out.
Now I must attack the enormous list of things that I would like to accomplish this summer...both professionally and personally. I do still plan to paint my classroom. I just need to finalize the shade of pale blue, oh, and getting over vertigo may help with ladder climbing.. I don't do sick well, especially since I don't feel sick. I am working like a fiend trying to get organized. My Erin Condren planner is just about set up.
With all this time on my hands as I am afraid to drive due to the crazy meds I am on, I have been a TV junkie. It hasn't been a bad week in which to be TV-obsessed as one of my favorite events all year is currently going on for a fortnight (such a tennis word....seriously. When do you ever hear someone describe the passage of time as a fortnight?).
When Federer went out, I really struggled with whom to root for. But, I just love the sport and believe it is at its best here and at the US Open. There are some promising young American women for whom to root also.
And, I had saved this for a time I really needed it, which is now, but I finally dove in on Netflix.
Oh my word. I get it.
