Confessions of a Fauf

End of an Era

This is it: vacation Fauf is growing old. Soon she will be retiring until December. She's had a great summer, experienced lots of exciting things, stayed up late and slept in, and did all the things expected of vacation Fauf. But now her time here is almost at a close. And soon a new Fauf will emerge...

This is vacation Fauf's last week of existence. Next week Fauf goes back to her school where she will revive Neverland. (Another blog on that later). So this being vacation Fauf's last week, she needs to live it up. Here is a tentative schedule of her last week. Feel free to chime in any suggestions.

Monday: 1. write. She's working on a story that needs some help. It's great, but she still hasn't pinpointed the main problem/solution of the plot. 2. Go see "Becoming Jane" with vacation Courtney who will soon become China Courts again. 3. Stay up late.

Tuesday: 1. paint. She has this sketch for the third painting of her trilogy she's done. 2. Take out a former student for ice cream. This may help merge the two Faufs together. 3. Stay up late.

Wednesday: 1. write some more and hope that she comes to a solid plot. 2. Play Scrabble. 3. Stay up late.

Thursday: 1. Spend the day with hubby since he'll be returning to his classroom on Fri. 2. Make Jenn bday brownies. 3. Stay up late.

Friday: 1. Check into the Neverland graveyard. She needs to assess the situation before she gives herself to the classroom again. 2. Have a moment of silence as she lets vacation Fauf retire. 3. Stay up late.

Weekends never should be scheduled, so they will not be mentioned here. All those who would like to bid vacation Fauf adieu, do so soon.

But we do care! Here's to the exciting autumn 2007 version of the amazing new Wendy Shaw and her new class of little pirates and pixies and her new adventures in Neverland. Take that Hook!
