Last Week of School!

I know many of you are already out of school for the summer.  My daughter is done with preschool, but my son has one more week of 2nd grade.  I’m psyched for the 3rd grade.  I guess it’s because I was a 3rd grade teacher in my former life.  I love that age.  I love the subject matter.  It’s just a great time.

This week the kids are only going half days.  The school district called yesterday to inform us of this change.  Evidently several elementary schools in our district do not have air conditioning.  With the freakish temperatures we are having here in PA, they have decided to have mercy on the kids and teachers and let them out early.

And my son’s response?  Disappointment.  I KNOW!  What gives?  Evidently today is supposed to be "Fun Day" and now he only gets half a fun day.  He is not amused.

Speaking of these freakish temperatures, (um, global warming much?) I have a question to ask.  WHY is it that it can be 98 degrees outside, and yet all the air-conditioned buildings are FRIGID inside?  What is so difficult about setting the thermostat so that we are comfortable?  HUH?  I don’t get it.

In my information packet from the She Speaks gang, we were warned that it will be very cold in the conference center and to be sure to bring jackets or sweaters.  And yesterday at church, it was so cold that we women were huddling in the back, commiserating.  One of my friends finally grabbed someone’s long-lost coat off the coat rack, evidently left behind by some unfortunate soul, and wore it around for the rest of the morning.

Nothing makes me grumpier than being cold.  I’ve waited ALL. WINTER. LONG. for warmer temperatures, and now that I have it, I have to huddle under a jacket when I’m indoors??  WHY? 

I do not want to wear a jacket.  I want to wear my cute tank tops that have been in hibernation all winter long.  I don’t want to worry about goosebumps and headlights and making sure I grab a jacket before I walk out the door.  Even if it is my favorite denim jacket that hides my muffin top.  Okay, so I guess there ARE benefits.  But still.  TURN THE AIR CONDITIONING UP, PLEASE!  Just a few degrees.  Just nudge it.  It’s THAT simple.  REALLY!!!

Okay, rant over.  It’s time for me to get my son up and ready to go to school.  One more week, and we can hang out at home all morning if we want.  I CANNOT WAIT.

Meanwhile, I have a really fun giveaway planned for this week.  It involves every girl’s best friend — jewelry.  So don’t stray too far from your computer, ‘kay?  I’ll have it up sometime this morning.

Oh, and hey.  Check out Chic Critique! We’re talking about daytime moisturizers.
