What I Did on my Summer Vacation

Hello! I have no idea if anyone is going to be reading this, but I hope you are. I’m hoping you will enjoy reading about my crafting exploits.

Basically, I’m a high school math teacher, and in the summers I have tons of free time. For the past several summers, I’ve loitered the time away, shopping and eating too much, and not having anything really to show for it. This summer will be different, and here’s how: First, I’m going to spend a LOT of time crafting (not a new plan, but one I’m hoping I’ll stick to with the accountability of this blog) and actually finish some stuff; second, I’m going to make use of the various Groupons and other options I have to exercise on a regular basis, and third, I’m going to work on my eating habits so that I’m consuming less takeout and fried food, and more stuff that’s healthy for me. I’m sure I’ll have the most to say about the crafty stuff, since it’s by far the most fun of those three goals, but we’ll just see how it goes!

Thanks for taking the time to read–I’ll start posting the fun stuff soon!
