It's is 8:03 a.m. on Saturday.  The official start of my summer vacation!!  Year 13 is in the books, and I can spend 6 or 7 short weeks (and they WILL be short ones ... so sad) just relaxing and getting my life back in order and recalibrated.  Task #1: Clean the atomic waste dump that is my house.  Holy cow!

Waxing a bit sentimental on you all, as I've looked at life (and my age, let's be honest here), I am struck with the idea of having each moment count.  Now, more than ever, I want each moment of this summer to count.  I want to have fun, and I want no regrets about the time I've spent doing "stuff."

During our testing period, when I was tasked with walking around the room monitoring test takers, I began "researching" Summer Bucket Lists.  And by researching, I mean, I got onto Pinterest to see what other people had done for bucket lists.  Turns out, lots of people do Summer Bucket Lists.  Who knew!

After looking at all the neat (and not so neat -- there are some weirdos out there, people) ideas out there, I began to craft my SUMMER 2015 BUCKET LIST. 

Here is it, folks, in allllll of its glory!!!
