    Considering the recent things that have happened to me, I should get out of the house &/or be around people more than usual. I get 12 days off in a row (14th-25th) & I plan to:

    - go out with 1-3 friends (separately, they don't know each other)
    - visit parents
    - go on a day trip with the BF (maybe a beach city)
    - go to the movies for sure...been going a lot lately
    - I have a CPR class to go to
    - new grad course starts that Monday
    - maybe get hair done at the salon, which I don't do much anymore

    A work pal & I are getting together this coming Monday. We both have a bit of venting to do to each other!

    By then, the break will be about over & it's on to looking forward for summer!

    Sounds like a fun, busy time! We don't have break until the last week in March, and then that falls during Holy Week, so playing for the various church services will keep me busy. But I plan to enjoy my time at home, relax, and work on a few projects. If the weather is nice I hope to do some hiking.

    We get Holy Week off. We can't plan anything since my esposo normally works extra when the rest of the country is off. If he has a couple days off we might go up to my friend's house at the beach!

    Catch up on sleep! I might go out of town for a couple of days with some gal pals, which would be nice too.

    That sounds like a good plan.

    I usually prefer doing multiple smaller things than one big trip. I really like my down time. Some of my friends leave after school and are gone until the day before school resumes. That would make me crazy!

    We get the first week of April free, but it is hard to plan long trips without running the risk of having to take days off unpaid. Spring break is often taken by make-up snow days.

    Like ama, my break is the last week in March. I'll spend the break with my 2 year old. :) We might go to the zoo one day, and we'll probably get together with friends for a playdate. But most of it will be relaxing and playing. And then we'll celebrate my birthday on Easter Sunday!

    We're having our March Break now... we're too poor to do anything really, but tomorrow's pay day, so on the last day of the break, we'll do a short road trip.

    Sleep, graduate school work, and some other things. There's a board game event in town the first Saturday and a bunch of friends are coming in for it. Also, I'll be working on the set for the school play, and sewing some costumes, as well.

    Ours is the first week of April. Since I'm subbing, there's obviously no prep I'd have to do that week. Right now I'm trying to decide if I want to take some paid time off from my side job to have some complete free time or work a normal week there to get more pay (saving up to be able to put a strong % down on a future house!)

    Makes it even harder that my wife's spring break from her community college classes is the week before...so maybe we'll do a weekend-like trip. All I know for sure is that I'll be taking major advantage of the extra time and applying to tons and tons of districts!

    Fiance and I are going to Poland with his grandma. We'll be in Poznan for most of the time (their home city), but I know she wants to take us to Warsaw at some point!

    I will spend a few days at home and then visit my daughter in Chicago for a few days. Perfect combination for me of home time and away time.

    That would be such an experience, I'm sure!

    I have no major plans. Lots of reading and relaxing. I'm sure we'll do something, but nothing major.

    I have to do a lot of National Board work during break. I was 9 points short of passing, so I really want to pass in my second year. I don't know if I'll do a lot else, but I'm definitely ready to relax after how busy I've been at school lately.

    Mine isn't until the week after Easter. I plan on resting up a bit, finishing the spring cleaning I started on my February break, and reading as much as I can!

    I have a vet appointment for Boo's yearly checkup on Monday.

    I will get together with my mom for a day or two of fun.

    I will take a nap if I feel like it.

    I will work on homework for my grad class.

    Planning on spring cleaning, getting finances in order, set up dentist appt, get a new passport and most importantly look to get myself on some sort of fitness plan. It's way overdue..

    I might have spring break plans after all.

    My mom broke up with her boyfriend of almost three years, so she's ready for a getaway. Looks like we are heading to Gatlinburg for 3 or 4 days. We've still got a couple of more weeks to plan. We've both got doctor appointments between now. & then.

    So my spring break did get a bit busy: went to a concert last night (it was GREAT!), going to a hockey game tonight, and then going to a museum and dinner with some coworkers tomorrow night.
