It’s always a little rough to come off Spring Break. The relaxed schedule is so nice. It’s nice to have more flexibility in our days. Plus, I love having Andy home with us! Today marks the return to our regular schedule.
My husband accomplished a lot over Spring Break. I have to brag on him for a minute.
He cleaned out the garage, throwing out lots and organizing what needed to stay. It looks so much better now!
He got rid of all the wood from a huge tree that the power company took down in our front yard. It took several trips to an Amish neighbor and his Tahoe got stuck in the process but the wood is now all gone!
He installed our new countertops with his Dad. We lived with our dated fake wood countertops for a long time but finally updated. They look so much better! Of course, now we need to repaint the walls so it’s a one step forward and two steps back project. Still, I’m so glad the countertops are checked off our list!
What did I do? I took care of Nathan so Andy could work!
I did manage to read a book. I posted some things to sell on Craigslist. I cleaned and reorganized the kitchen after the new countertops were installed. I did laundry. I took a blogging break. I joined Instagram (even without a smart phone). I went to church. I celebrated my 33rd birthday.
I don’t feel like I accomplished much but the break was good. It also puts me in the mood for summer vacation. Even part time, it is still one of the great advantages of being a teacher. I have 2 months – 8 weeks of school – 17 music classes – left to teach this year. Yes, I counted!
We did have a wonderful Easter and I’m glad we had time together as a family. We went for walks. We used some gift cards to eat out. We tagged team the morning wake-up with Nathan so we could sleep in. Simply put, we had a more relaxed pace for a week. Spring break always comes at the perfect time. Now, back to life as usual! How was your Easter and / or most recent break?
