Don't forget about the giveaway!
A year ago, I was freaking out (only ever-so-slightly) about moving 2,000 miles away.
Now? I'm counting down the days until I can go back!!!
This summer has been...well...interesting. Something (I can't find the right word to use here. Shitty? Fucking awful? Depressing? Sad?) happened right before I left DreamSchool to come home in May, and it kind of threw my whole summer (and life) for a loop. Basically, since then I've just been trying to pick up the pieces of everything.
(I know, I'm cryptic. Sorry. I may or may not spill some day, but it's a really, REALLY long story that goes back several years and blah blah blah. Not now.)
But this summer hasn't been all bad! I can't tell you how much I've loved nannying for Sam, Ben and Coco. Of course it's not all fun and games (though let's face it, it is 90% of the time), these kids are so sweet, polite, respectful, and fun. My very favorite thing about Sam and Ben is how I can just open a book and immediately they'll both be over in my lap, ready to read. My favorite thing about Coco is GOOD GOD, THE BABY CHUB AND SMILES.
I've gotten closer to a few friends from high school, which has been really nice.
Spending four solid days on the beach was heavenly.
I've discovered that I am okay on my own, and that I can survive. This was a good realization.
But now? I'm itching to get back up to DreamSchool. I'm ready to be back with my friends, eating way too much Ben & Jerry's and playing way too much MarioKart and giving way too many tours for the admissions office (which I love!) and occasionally doing some homework as well. And I'm ready to be back out of the heat! (GAH!)
One month, 8 days.
