Early Summer Vacation

In a couple of hours, when I pick Z up at school, it will be the beginning of his summer vacation. Julie, however, has been on vacation for about a week already. Why, you ask? Over last weekend, Julie started complaining about a sore throat. Then she became extremely tired. Sound familiar?

A couple of visits to the doctor later and Julie had her diagnosis...mono. Mono? Yes, mono...

As we understand it, this first week will be the intense period of exhaustion. As I write this, Julie is laying on the couch watching the second "Princess Diaries" movie, for like the umpteenth time. In fact, she's watching it this time with the director's comments. Wait a minute...the TV just went off. She's now opened up The True Confessions of Charlotte Doyle, one of her summer reading books. This will definitely pay dividends in August!

It's too bad that Julie has to miss the last, fun week of school, especially given how hard she works all year long. As her teacher put it, this week is the "victory lap." That said, she couldn't have timed things more perfectly...no make up work (yea!) and plenty of time to rest up before the big trip. As usual, Julie puts family ahead of her own wants and needs!

And, oh yeah, happy birthday, Julie! Ai ni!
