Well, I'm off on a quick trip to England and Paris. Here I thought I'd have a couple of days to unwind, do a little reading, blogging, commenting, etc. Boy was I wrong! School ended on Friday with graduation, which went off really well. That next day I had a good friend come into town and we went to see Les Miserables, which is touring the country right now. (The play and the company both were great!) Sunday I collapsed in a heap of post-school year fatigue, and the first two days of the week were spent at a school meeting that kept me busy all day long. This transition from the end of school to this trip has been a pretty busy, eventful one. Maybe that will make sleeping on the plane a possibility so the jet lag isn't quite so crazy? I sure hope so!
Thanks to everyone who has given me great advice on everything from what to take or what to see. Now I can hop a flight and be on my way. Oh, and thanks to my new toy (iPad), I didn't have to pack half a suitcase of books! It felt really odd and I almost snuck a stack in anyway, but just knowing I have hundreds to choose from on my iPad is pretty great. Maybe that means I can buy more once I get to London???
When I get back, things will be busy throughout much of the summer, so I'm going to really try to kick back and completely enjoy every moment. Yes, I'll be taking a lot of pictures of places and things that I can share in some of my lessons at school, but that's always kind of fun. My students tease me a bit about some of the pictures that I'm included in from my trip to Greece, so I have to keep the teacher-included pictures to a minimum on this trip!
Thanks again, and I'll see you on the other side. (We'll see if I can get a post or two written before I leave, but it seems a little unlikely at this point!)
