Day 235 (600)

I can't believe I've been doing this for 600!! days!!
My classroom is 98% ready for Monday's school start.  Now I just have to figure out what I'm going to do.
Spent some time at the hospital visiting my uncle Phil.  Got to see my awesome cousins, parents and my godmother & uncle. It was so nice to see them, but not under these circumstances.  My uncle is so amazing.  He worked for decades without taking a sick day in a very physical job.  This bites.
