I decided that I would do a weekly recap, and link up with The Sunday Post, which is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ hosted by Caffeinated Book Reviewer, that was inspired in part by In My Mailbox. It’s a post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog.
This week was my first week of summer vacation. I had to work on Monday, but other than that I’ve been footloose and fancy-free. Kinda. Monday was boring because I had to put in an entire workday but I had already moved into my new classroom. So I basically watched television, read a book, played video games, and napped until 2:30 PM. Such a waste! Afterward, was our staff celebration, which turned out to be a really nice event.
The rest of the week consisted of me waiting for the Sears repairman to show up and fix our washer. They kept playing games with us. Pushing appointments back, rescheduling without a word, and just generally offering the worst customer service. I thought I could unwind from being a hard ass and instead had to get on the phone and have some words with them about their lack of customer service and disregard for appointments and other people’s time. Needless to say, my conversation with them somehow miraculously got them to my house despite not having any appointments until next week. Ugh! Sears is THE WORST! Aside from chewing out companies, I prepared for my trip to Europe, which was the highlight of my week. Lord knows I deserved to get my hair and nails done after all the stress I got put through by Sears.

I leave Tuesday evening for Europe and will be gone for about 10 days. I’m going to start in Vienna, and then I’ll travel through Croatia. I’m so excited to see both of these beautiful pictures and hope to have some amazing photos to bring back with me. Since I want to relax and will have limited Wi-Fi access, I’ll also be taking a vacation from the blog and social media for the next two weeks with the possible exception of Instagram.
