1. Summer plans..... a family reunion, a wedding, and summer camp for the kids.

2. I am looking forward to having a healthy family... we have all been really sick.

3. State testing starts this week, and at least one of my kids is totally stressed out about it.

1.  I have my sewing machine geek fest in late June.  Some internet friends will be in town 4th of July so I'm going to try to meet up with them over the weekend (son and DIL are going to be out of town that weekend).  In august, son, DIL and the two DGSs and I will be going out to my family reunion in Illinois.

2.  This week?  Nothing that I can think of.  Mom and Dad just left after a very nice visit, so this week will be something of a letdown.

3. mowing the lawn.  Looks like I'll get my wish :D

1. School is almost out. Do you have any big plans for the summer? -- No. The Kids will be in Germany for most of June and July.  Dh has 300+ computers to setup and install over the summer, so he won't have much opportunity to take leave.   We have some house projects to work on.

2. What is one thing that you are looking forward to, this week? -- I leave Friday for a week in Austin for my annual regional conference. I can't wait!  Good friends, good food, good fun ... oh and lots of learning and work, lol.

3. One thing that you would rather avoid this week? -- Prepping for said conference ...

1.  Yes, I do. My annual professional meeting, where I see bunches of old friends, is coming up early in May.  The husband, younger son and I are taking what might be our last family road trip together for a long time in June.  We've got a month of fun planned.   Then (poor me) I have to go to Europe for three weeks for work in July.  In August, the younger one and I are doing one last big astronaut-centered event before he leaves the next.  2.  To tell the truth, this week isn't really big on fun.  I guess the most fun thing on my calendar is a potluck dinner on Wednesday to celebrate the end of a yearlong thing I participated in at church.  3.  A meeting with an equity officer to discuss a lawsuit being brought against the graduate school because somebody was denied admission to a PhD program.  Although it looks like I might actually avoid it, since the officer is now twenty minutes late to our meeting.

1. School is almost out. Do you have any big plans for the summer? Other than dd's graduation, not really.

2. What is one thing that you are looking forward to, this week? Seeing my brother.

3. One thing that you would rather avoid this week? Flying. I find the whole airport business a drag, but in order to see my brother, I have to fly.
