A day late and dollar short (Day 17)

Yesterday should have been Day 17 of the Challenge. I never got past thinking that I should write a blog post. Oh well. I am still going to end up with 30 posts in 30 days.

Today, Friday, is the second to last day of school. It was chaotic day with plays and parties, movies and moving. Lots going on. The end of the school year is always like the last mile of a long hike. It goes on and on feeling like much more than one mile. Today felt much longer than 7 hours. Monday will feel like 12 hours even though it is an early release. That just seems to be the nature of these last days before summer.

I dedicate this day-late blog post to my sixth grade teacher, Mr. Rogers. He often told us, when we were late with our work, that we were, "A day late and dollar short." As tough as that sounds, I loved Mr. Rogers.

Here's hoping that I can manage to stay on top of things enough that I will not be a day late again.
