a wee tad of a break...

Can't stop my heart from pounding. A nearly averted traffic accident. Max and I were out having a grand old time competing in our daily car counting competition while waiting for the bus. But as the bus pulled up, a driver coming from the opposite direction obviously wasn't paying any attention and had to slam on his breaks and swerve around, running completely off the road to avoid hitting the car in front of him that had stopped for the bus. Luckily no one was hurt. But it is a damn good thing that the directions weren't switched, or that car would have either slammed into the back of the other car at high speed, swerved one way and slammed headfirst into the bus, or swerved the other way and run over Max. *deep breaths Debi, deep breaths*

Okay. The real intention of this post is just let you know that I'm going to be taking a short break. Having a tough time keeping up with everything. No biggie, just trying to finish up our school year. Always a busy time, with not only finishing up the actually "doing" part of school, but with all the end of year paperwork and testing crap for the district and then the intentions and plans for next year paperwork for the district. Blah blah blah. And then there's still this whole trying to get this house in working order thing. More blah blah blah.

Anyway, blog reading has yet again fallen by the wayside. Which makes me sad, but there's no use pouting about it, is there? So I think I'm just going to close the computer up for a few weeks and concentrate on what needs done. Sort of a figurative closing up of the computer...as we pretty much use it all the time for school. :P And well, I'm really having with Fat Mum Slim's Photo a Day thingie, so I'll probably keep doing that on tumblr.

In the meantime, you all have the most awesome June imaginable!!!! Can't wait to catch up with you all later...and sheesh, I sure hope my heart has stopped pounding by then...

Oh gosh, I'm glad the car went the other way! How scary!

I wish I could see your photo a day things. I'm not on Tumblr anymore (quit about 5 months ago). I'm doing the photo a day thing too, but on Instagram, which i really like. :)

Enjoy your break, get settled and recharged, and please don't be gone too long.

And thank God no one was hurt in that mess. People really need to learn to pay better attention when driving. I think it is getting worse every day.

ENjoy a lovely break; we'll be here when you get back. Restore-refresh-renew. :)

Breathe, Debi, breathe. Good. Now get back to the house, school, reports, etc. calmly and serenely. Good for you to recognize a way to simplify things. We'll all be here when you get back.

I just saw this post - I'm catching up on my favourite blogs - so here's hoping you are catching up on the year end school stuff, life stuff, house stuff....and can I add, finding some reading time? :-) cause none of us have enough of that!

I'm soooo glad the car went the other way, Debbie. Big hug from up here in Canada.

I echo what Carl says, don't be away too long!

*hugs* re: the accident

I hope your break lets you get all caught up. I can't imagine how busy your life is! When you have a minute, can you e-mail me your new house address?
