Last day of school today, and it was a half day at that.  Ceecee’s last day was yesterday.  She also had her interview and she got the library job for next year, so that’s a real blessing.  

I like my job and I love teaching, but this has been an unusually difficult group of students and we weren’t sad to see the year come to an end.  In fact, and I don’t know whose idea it was, but all of us who teach in the west building met right outside as soon as the final bell rang  We put Hawaiian leis around our necks, set up a plastic swimming pool on the sidewalk, and held up plastic margarita glasses while we waved as the busses went by.

I finally put my notice in at Macy’s.  I haven’t needed the job for quite a while, but the extra money has been nice.

My getting that job was also a key step in getting my wife back because it showed her I was willing to be unselfish and sacrifice to make things better.  It was easy work, but it’s time for it to end.

In fact, my wife has wanted me to quit for some time now because she’d rather have me home than get the extra paycheck.  Our last day of school is this Thursday, and I’ve decided that I’m not going to work during our summer of restoration.

I’ll wrap up this weekend and then I’m done.  We’ll have all of June and July to complete the remaining steps on the restoration tour and then we’ll be riding the Tour de Cox and having our vow renewal ceremony on August 6th!
