Sorry to anyone who uses blogger but I can’t comment on your posts!! I have cleared my cache, tried 2 different browsers, and I get an error every time. If I want to comment with my google account, I have to create a blogger page! I don’t know why blogger makes it so hard to comment.

Happy holiday to those in the US. Our country is a bit of a dumpster fire right now, but I believe in democracy. My bachelor’s degree is in History with a minor in Political Science. I am grateful for those who fought to create a totally new political ideology.

I wish we didn’t celebrate with fireworks though. Calleigh, my older dog, hates them. She isn’t a fan of thunder either. In Ohio, its now legal to set off fireworks during the weekend of the 4th, and the weekend after. Not that anyone around here refrained before, but I am anticipating it being worse than it has been in years past.

I went into my office to unpack some things. My husband came with me. It was nice to have some help. However, we realized we are both old and after about 2 hours, his back hurt and my hip hurt. We were kind of a mess. Also, somehow in moving from my classroom to my office, I lost my scissors. Go figure!

Its July so I now only have this month left of my summer vacation. Boohoo! But, I’m excited for my new role as school psychologist instead of teacher. And, this is my last quarter of classes as well! So, I am going to try to soak up pool time and puppy time while I can.

So, whats new with you this week? Did you read any of the same books I did? Did you find any great book deals I need to grab ASAP? Let me know in the comments!

  1. yes I wrote a political rant in my post and then deleted it when I scheduled my post last night. It is a dumpster fire. I realize the politicians are all criminals but I’d rather have the ones who do something for the people like voting, education, healthcare, roads, clean air/water, etc. Enjoy what you can of this month and every month. I’ve had a few issues on blogger pages but I use my Twitter account (as always) and that works.

  2. I know, I can’t believe I have less than a month left of my summer break before I have to start back to work! And I hope my library is done so I can actually get in and do things when it is my day back. Congrats on the new job! I totally understand because of how happy I was to leave the classroom and go into the library. Below Zero will probably be my purchase with my Audible credit this month I think. I feel the same as you about our country right now. I’m lucky as my dogs don’t seem to mind fireworks that much. Maybe it’s because they’re usually in their safe spot, their kennel, and I’m out at someone else’s house for fireworks. Plus being right next to two major streets means that most people won’t shoot fireworks off out in the open here. I don’t know how legal it is or is not as the rules always seem to be changing. Hope you have a nice week coming up!

  3. I’m with you on the fireworks – not only do they stress out my dog, but honestly me too. They are just not safe when in the hands of drunk amateurs! I’m a mix of emotions about this country right now – disappointed, outraged, sad and afraid all in one. And I truly cannot celebrate Independence Day when we aren’t living up to the things we’re supposed to be celebrating. I don’t disagree with you about Democracy being a gift to celebrate, I just believe we’re living in a bastardization of it that needs desperate repair, not celebration. That said, I don’t think it’s wrong to celebrate for those that find joy and hope through that celebration – I just can’t.

    Enjoy your final month of vacation! And how exciting to be returning as the school psychologist!!! Excited for you and the kids you’ll be helping! What an impactful role — and hopefully one a little separated from the problems of being a classroom teacher.

  4. Strangely, the fireworks in my neighborhood did not go on as late as they have in years past. Granted, they were NONSTOP from about 7 pm, but I think they mostly wound down by about 11:30. I took that as a win. It’s hard to stay positive about our democracy and taking the steps necessary to enact change, but I know it’s important and can be done. There are people out there who may not be perfect, but who do seem to want to do the right thing and make things better. Enjoy that pool time!
