TWITL – week forty – fall break

TWITL – week forty – fall break

We’re in the middle of fall break here, which is why I’m writing this post on Monday morning. I decided to take the Mondays and Fridays off, which meant a four day weekend last weekend (because I took the Friday off for the concert), a four day weekend for this weekend, and a three day…

TWITL – week thirty-six – what we remember

As I write now, it’s September 11, 2021. Twenty years since 9/11. I won’t post this today but I thought I’d take that moment to pause, as one does on this day but I suppose especially this day twenty years later. What did we learn from that day, from those days after, from that moment…

TWITL – week thirty-five – Happy Labor Day

I do so love the three day weekends. August feels like the longest month, work-wise, because there are neither holidays nor breaks in all that month. It’s just work on the weekdays and then the weekend. It’s always such a relief to get through it. I started working overtime this week. I know, me, overtime?…

TWITL – week twenty-nine – winding down the summer break feeling

TWITL – week twenty-nine – winding down the summer break feeling

Summer break doesn’t last very long for the kids out this way. The schools out here operate on a modified traditional schedule, which means they have two week breaks after every quarter, making the summer break shorter by a few weeks compared to other schools. After working for the district all these years, I’ve gotten…

TWITL – week twenty-seven – back to work

TWITL – week twenty-seven – back to work

It’s still summer break for the kids out this way but I went back to work after more than a week off. Even though I had a lot of emails and voicemails to go through, it wasn’t so bad. I have air conditioning at work and not many interruptions when it’s summer break… TV The…

TWITL – week twenty-three – fun in the sun

It was such a lovely week, weather-wise. We had a couple of days where it was actually cool enough to not run the a/c after work. Amazing! Of course, now it’s warming up again. The forecast says that we’ll have triple digits by the end of the week. Yikes! Our Saturday started with corn hole.…
