Today was also the last day of school for my son and I didn't have to teach. I've been enjoying some much needed alone time over this holiday weekend. My husband and son are at the sea shore in South Carolina. They went to see Ft. Sumter today and then stopped by an aquarium. They have been posting pictures to Facebook and having a wonderful time. Me, I've been enjoying my 'mom time' this weekend. After a year of teaching and getting my son ready to jump from 6th grade to 8th grade some alone time is welcome. I've worked on things that are important to me, moves for the demos I am teaching in self defense, my weapon and non weapon karate katas, and my big score of the weekend....RAINBOW SOCK MONKEYS! My son and I are huge fans of the Pier 1 commercial where the sock monkey is in the hanging chair. Awesome funny commercial and actually a very good one. Commercials are lots of fun but sometimes you remember the them but not the company. This one really helps Pier 1. When I was in the store today, I was very glad that I'm a singer, I found myself imitating the Rainbow Sock Monkey to the associate who helped me find and then buy my monkeys.
Well, now time to get ready to tutor for the summer.
