And I've had several. So I'm probably operating at 125% right now. Wine makes you think you're smarter.
It's not my fault.
My hunny and I had plans to go to the Wine Fest in Las Cruces today, but he took too long at his photo shoot. (He's behind the camera; not in front of it.) So instead of watching other people get hammered and almost pop out of their tube tops while dancing to the retro cover band (an event from last year's wine fest that I will treasure forever) I am at his house, drinking Cabernet Sauvignon, watching reruns of Mad Men (oh, my, Don Draper. I know you have been a bad man, and yet... I don't care) and waiting for my hunny to return home with - of all things - a chocolate cake donut from Dunkin. That's pathetic.
Which means it's the perfect time to link up.
Ok, so I've been trying to post this for over a week, but I have problems planning for new things when I have things left on my list to complete (such as school). But next week is my last full week and I have three days left after that. I'm trying to psych myself up for summer but all I can think of is all the crapola I still have to pack up in my classroom. And my end-of-the-year portfolios that I have to complete. And the data wall cards I have to fill out for my kids. And how I still have to teach about food chains, life cycles, and measurement units. And I'm not super excited about it.
But I'm also the Queen of Avoidance. I'm going to use this special adaptation I developed to survive in my harsh environment to link up with Hadar, April, and Teri for my Summer Bucket List!

Okay, maybe not exactly, but pretty close. Actually, this is what it looks like down the street. So needless to say, if I want grass, I need a sprinkler system. And I want grass. I think I deserve grass. And my animals deserve grass. I miss grass after living my childhood in Dallas and my adult life in a desert. So this summer, I will demand grass.
We swam with dolphins.
This was us after we swam with dolphins. Wet.
So I'm super excited about going with my hunny. However, I know my man. And swimming with dolphins will not happen on this cruise. Because he can't swim.
He can't swim!
How is that possible?
I don't know. But it means he will not swim. But I can swim. Cause too bad for him, but I love water.
He can sit on the beach and watch me have fun.
Well, that's my list for the summer. Those are the big ones, but there are many many more things on it. Such as going to all of the doctors that I hate going to but have to. I schedule them in the summer so I don't have to miss schook. But it's depressing and definitely on the list.
Now you go and link up! What will you do this summer?
