I am participating in the Slice of Life Story Challenge (SOLSC; #SOL16)
hosted by Two Writing Teachers.
Each day for the month of March I will be posting a "Slice of Life".
Please feel free to stop back and check out my other posts here.
Spring Break...I'm always conflicted. I constantly have an enormous "to do" list & this is a great time to get it done. On the other hand, it would be lovely to do absolutely nothing & just enjoy some time off. Then still, the kids are off from school, and we could easily fill our days with activities & day trips. I wish I could get a full week for each of these!
Not counting the weekend, today was our first day of Spring Break. I guess, in reality, I mixed everything together.
We slept in, not even getting out of bed until school usually starts. Then I dropped the kids at day care & made a Costco run (cross that off the to do list!). I took my purchases home, and despite intentions to get some work done, proceeded to whittle away the rest of my time on email, Twitter, Facebook, a podcast & an audio book. By then, it was time to pick the kids up and head to ballet class & swim team practice.
And now Day 1 is history! Before I know it, our entire break will be over. And guaranteed, I will not have crossed nearly enough things off the to do list, will not have gone as many places as I'd hoped with the kids, and will still be longing for some alone time to "do nothing". But, despite the fact that I know this will be the case, I will do my best to make the most of the week I have to fit in a little bit of everything...even if it's never enough!
