I love when Lisa does her Looking Forward posts, so here is mine :)
Today.... sucks, why do you think I decided to do a Looking Forward post? Lol. Seriously though, today was a rough day. I was at tutoring at 7:15 this morning and still there at 6:15 at night, that's never a good day especially in the summer. Plus I had a parent who was an hour late to pick up at summer school today. I totally understand things happen/communication troubles/emergencies etc. What I'm really pissed about is the program I work for, everyone just left- so I was responsible for hanging out unpaid for an hour when I was supposed to be at a meeting. I left my former summer program because I hated how disorganized it was, but now God is spiting me now because this is MUCH worse. I think from now on I will only work for myself in the summer. Lesson learned. Time to move forward!!!
On the positive side, I did get to tutor one of my all-time favorite kids today. She is going into fifth grade and I just love that age (to hang out with, I don't love the curriculum and psycho testing). I got her to start reading "Because of Winn Dixie" today, and we talked about how much we both love the game "Guess Who?" Seriously, do you remember that game? She refers to Bill as egghead. In case you don't memorize your Guess Who characters... here he is...
Ah, good memories.
This week... I am going to New York City with my family!!!! Wahoo! Eric has never been to NYC so I am going to do a lot of touristy things with him. Also, I haven't seen Caroline since she moved to Connecticut at the beginning of July, so that is really exciting too.
This month... I will spend a little over a week in Cape Cod, relaxing and truly enjoying the summer. This will be my first true vacation of the summer and I feel like I really, really, really deserve it. I can't wait to do fun touristy stuff and read a lot of books all week long :)
This year... I have so much to look forward to! In September, I have 2 weddings both of which are going to be fun. In October, I go to Chicago to watch Caroline run the marathon. In December, I go to Florida because winter in Boston is terrible haha. In June next year I have 3 weddings, and then in July I go to Seattle/Vancouver for Amber's wedding. Oh, and because I sometimes look forward to things other than trips (rarely), I also am excited about some of my future kiddos- lots of great siblings I've been looking forward to getting to know better. And, I can't wait to run another 5K with Eric in September and who knows what else the year will bring...
See? These posts just make me feel SO much more positive. What are you looking forward to?
