Many of you have asked where in the world I've been.

All I know is that after 7 plus years of blogging and a different lappy, which I don’t like, I seem to have lost my blogging fervor.

Someday, when you least expect it, I will post again.

For those of you still waiting I say thank you.

Meanwhile, I am rather prolific on twitter. Find me: @KeethaB

Sunday Reruns - Summer Freedom



It's Sunday again, and you know what THAT means!?! It's time for Sunday reruns!!! Thanks so much to Chari over at Happy to Design for hosting this meme, "Sunday Favorites."

Other folks in other places are going back to school. Not me. I will never go back as a full time teacher again, though I do plan to do some subbing.

In honor of all things school, today I'm reposting this piece about how lovely it is to feel FREE when summer break begins.



Dids and Did Nots
(First posted on 5/29/08)


Things I DID on my first day of summer vacation

1) Stayed in bed until after 8.

2) Had my nails done.

3) Sped in a school zone and got pulled over and warned for it. Oooooops!

4) Blogged

5) Read my book


6) Bought some Dove's. If you CAN'T get DeBrands, just a little Dove'll do ya!!!

7) Had a pedicure. Girls - - - check out the pedicures at your local beauty schools. Only $10 and OH SO WONDERFUL!!! (They've gone up to $13 in 2010, but still a deal and a half!)

8) Blogged some more

9) Took a little cat nap

10) Watched some ESPN

11) Ate a Greek salad for supper at my favorite little Greek restaurant


Things I Definitely DID NOT DO on My First Day of Summer Vacation:

1) Go anywhere near the school

2) Grade papers

3) Clean house

4) Do laundry

5) Cook

6) Exercise

7) Mow

8) Volunteer for ANY summer responsibilities

Manicures and pedicures, I must try one of these soon...after hauling in the winter firewood supply and spinning up a batch of wool of course!Summer vacation, I remember when those words actually meant "vacation".

Good for you, and good for us because maybe this means even more funny posts from our Eclectic Blogger!
