I'm ready for Maine. I'm ready to be relaxing on the rocker gazing up Winona toward the boardwalk, deciding whether to walk around the park or maybe play a game of river or Scrabble on the porch. I'm ready for the easy conversation, the relaxed atmosphere, and the comfort of Sea Mist.
Two more weeks of working eight hours a day, teaching three more hours, grading papers, helping kids with homework, cleaning house, paying bills, sleeping, and finding time to exercise during the remaining hours.
