Yes, one of the perks of teaching at a university is that when the kids are off for break, so are you!
I am going in tomorrow to help judge a forensics tournament, but I volunteered for that. I love watching these jr. high and high school kids really give it there all in the speeches they give.
The rest of the week will be spent finishing the edits to my book, God willing, and cleaning out closets and, hopefully, refinishing a side table that was my grandfather's to turn it into a night table for our 2nd spare room/my office/my niece's room when she visits.
We are currently redecorating and once the table is finished and final pictures are hung, I will post pictures of the room that was once an over-crowded mess with a queen bed and a $40 small dresser from Kmart. Now it has a Twin XL Amish-made storage bed, my desk, my pretty file box, a bin for necessary book storage, and this side table. I am going out on a limb with the table and taking it from its original green and painting it the 2014 "Color of the Year". Since the room is painted lavender, I think it will work well. We shall see.
Sorry for the lack of updates, I keep saying I'm going to get better, but...
