Tomorrow is the last day of school. I can hardly believe it. The year seems to have flown by but the last couple of weeks always drag. I spent hours working on our annual publication of notable student and teacher writing and photography only to have it arrive from the publisher today with the spacing completely off, in a totally random and nonsensical way. Almost $500 for 60 copies. 141 pages I poured over until they were perfect. There is no way I am passing it out and I've been on the verge of tears all day today with the stress of it all. I've put in a message (email only--the website lists no phone number) to the site's support to discuss options but I haven't heard anything. I've just had to come to terms with it not being given to the writers published until next fall and I guess I'll figure something out. Uggg.
I just need to shake off that little speed bump and concentrate on getting into the swing of summer--lazy days, shopping, reading, road trips, more blogging (I've got 2 or 3 weeks of life I've been wanting to document), organizing, scrapbooking, sleeping in...After my 6 a.m. wakeup tomorrow I can put that little black alarm clock in my nighstand drawer for almost 3 months!
