We’re in the last week of the 2009/10 school year and getting ready for the summer break. You may or may not have noticed but I haven’t written anything for the last couple weeks. That’s because I took a break from the blog and school to vacation ten days in Hawaii. Substitute teachers can do that with a simple call to enter a “period of unavailability” at any time for any reason.
The reason to vacation two weeks early was intended to beat the airlines at their own “un-fare” game. Claudette and I booked our flights to Hawaii before the predictable increase in air fares when the real teachers go on vacation.
The plan was working perfectly until we encountered a different kind of unexpected “break”.
Claudette fell off one of her “really cute new shoes” and broke her foot entering the hotel the day we arrived on Kauai. We still had a great time except for the “urgent care” facility visit.
