Long time, no post. So, school is out, officially, but the work continues.
What was supposed to be an easy close-up of the year to simply stack chairs
in my classroom/computer lab ended up with everything in cabinets except the
computer CPUs to be taken downtown to be updated, instead of remotely, since
I'm getting new carpet. YEAH! It's over 30 years old so you can imagine.
And with all the new software and books I got called in to the main office
to go over things and order and answer questions.
I'm also busy taking care of stuff for my summer business meeting for my
student competition group and will be in Orlando in July. This will be my
last summer on the board. Happy/Sad dance since they have been a great
group of people but a meeting right in the middle of summer wrecks family
I also was awarded a management contract from the State of Alaska to run our
State Student conference for the next three years. Simply adding insanity
on top of insanity, but the other person switched jobs and the contract
expired so I could either try for it myself and get some compensation, or

But, keeping things on topic, next week Friday is Quilty Day. The math
teacher, the science teacher, the secretary and I are getting together to
sew and eat and drink some "grape juice". Not sure what I'm going to take
to work on. I have a Hawaiian square I'm hand quilting, I have some hand
applique started, and I have my red sticks blocks. That is what I would
like to work on, but don't know if I want to lug the machine out for just a
day. Probably will. The math teacher has a big room with four folding
tables and a back deck that has a view of the mountains. Sounds like a good
day to me.
I'll be sure to report back. I have a week to gather things together so
that will give me some time to think about it.
