Weekend of Weather

This weekend was filled with serious storms that consisted of much of my time spent inside our hallway closet. Living 10 yards or so away from a tornado siren can be a good thing, but when the siren goes off and my part of the county is not in any serious danger, the sirens become quite a nuisance and scare me half to death. I was so glad that I fell asleep at 8:15 Friday night completely exhausted from the wonderful field trip that I spent with my students because this is what I experienced later on that night:
1st experience: 4:00ish Saturday morning
2nd experience: 10:30ish Saturday morning
3rd experience: 9:45ish Saturday night
4th experience: 1:30ish Sunday morning
Needless to say, I was excited to get a continous amount of sleep last night with no interruptions.

I am amazed by the amount of flooding that surrounding towns have experienced. Some people have lost everything that they own. I cannot even imagine the nightmare that they are going through right now.

On a bitter-sweet note, the school year is winding down! I have LOVED my class this year so much. I am really going to miss them, but I will be excited to have a more relaxed schedule for two months. We all know that I cannot stay still without something to do for more than 5 minutes or so, therefore my summer may be relaxed, but not boring. I will be completing a grad school class from Mid-May to Mid-June, then I am free of grad school till after Paula's wedding in September and I will only have 4 classes left plus my internship and I will be done with school forever! I will be working part-time whenever I am needed at the salon. We will be remodeling our master bathroom. I will be throwing Paula a wedding shower. I will be having multiple lunch dates with my grandparents. I will be swimming at Paula's pool and the Loft's pool :) Oh yeah and I will be assisting with leadership opportunities for the school district. Sounds relaxing huh?
