June 27 – Working, returning, and shopping

Things I’ve accomplished today:

  1. I went in to school for the last day until August! Woo!
  2. I finally returned a dress I bought from a Loft Outlet months ago.
  3. I bought two pairs of new shoes. They are both Crocs. I have had some anti-Croc sentiments in the past, but these shoes are seriously comfortable. And in black, they don’t look that much like Crocs – at least at a glance. They look like real, normal shoes, and they will be great for walking the dog this summer.

June 13 – 1: Playing (school-sanctioned) hookie

So there’s a weather alert in my area for this afternoon and this evening that has had people all atwitter at school today. And apparently it’s severe enough that my school district has cancelled all activities for today, and also sent staff home early. (Students had a scheduled half-day of school, so we were told to leave once the students had left).

Leaving aside my thoughts about the ridiculousness of this “there might be a bad thunderstorm so we’d better play it safe” mentality, I am grateful to be getting a little extra free time this afternoon. No matter how much work may be looming over my head for the coming days.
