Countdown to summer - one month

Saturday, May 22, 2010

As my friends know, I'm heading to Italy this summer to attend a class - Italian language, and medieval and Renaissance art. I'm an art teacher, and I need to earn 15 quarter hours every 5 years to maintain my teaching certificate. This class, 10 credits, in addition to several previous summer courses, will cover me for another 5 years - and then I should be about ready to retire. (That's the plan anyway.)

I leave one month from today. Exactly.

And I don't want to think about all the things I need to do in that one month - really, I don't!

The time is going to absolutely fly!!!!!

    "Quarter hours"? Is that 15 minutes? I'm totally lost by that term! I thought CEUs were always in hours.

    Oh, you will have the very best time! Dove il gabinetto?? Vorei uno gelato di lampone! That's about the extent of my Italian but I remember with great fondness my course in Florentine art . .. can it really be 32 years ago????? I think so!!

    Yeah, I think that black BCBG dress might be the dressy item I carry along. I'm a very light packer.

    Can I fit in your suitcases - sounds like it will be a wonderful trip. Enjoy the sights - don't study too much.

    Yup, it will be! I just have a mural to finish and grout, another mural to grout, a mural dedication to plan, classes to grade, on and on...........then get the house ready for my absence, pack, and finish planning my part of the trip before I go.

Lots to do!
