Odds and Ends

It’s been a busy week completing simple tasks as we ready to begin our travels north. I had my follow-up appointment with the optometrist and placed my order for new contact lenses. On Tuesday, I went back to Chamberlain High School and spoke with the senior class on their last day at senior sendoff activities. I have been invited by my successor to attend the commencement exercises next Monday and join him on stage to shake the graduates hands after they receive their diplomas. I’m thankful to Mr. Morrill for asking me to be a part of the ceremony. These students were my first freshman class once I became the principal. The school year, and teaching career for that matter,  ends for Barbie a week from today. Retirement is ever so close for her. Speaking of Barbie, TODAY, is her birthday as well.

I also created an Excel spreadsheet this week that will allow us to project a monthly budget and also keep actual expenses for our records. I have been reviewing several rvers versions of their budgets and believe I have integrated the best and most appropriate parts of each and personalized it for our purposes into a workable format. And finally, I just this morning received the call from Classic Coach Works that the renovations to our motorhome have been completed. I am anxious to see how the new tvs and the cabinetry looks. This afternoon we will go pick it up and bring it home. I’ll post pictures on my next entry. ‘Til next time……
