    Well, I think I'm mostly done with organizing & gathering paperwork for taxes/finances. It seems the majority of my spring breaks, I'm stuck doing this. My goal is for this to be the last time I have to do it during this time of year. As far as anything else, last weekend we went to a basketball game @ TCU and then to a friends house to meet up with a friend. I've met with a friend a couple of times this week for some shopping. I plan on meeting with another friend today and maybe do some window shopping.

    So while my spring break hasn't been very exciting, I'm still grateful for the break.

    I guess NOT catching up on grading as I had planned--I forgot that progress reports go out the last day before break! There may be a few late nights next week...

    Ours is the week after Easter. On Monday we will be doing a college visit for my son (He's a junior, time to start checking out colleges). Thursday-Sat. I'll be at a conference. My hubby has told me that I need to organize the basement. I'm pretty sure that I won't be teaching kindergarten next year, my P & I have already talked about that. Just not for sure yet what I'll be doing, but a lot of my kindergarten stuff will be coming home.

    I'm chaperoning for my coach hubby at girls' state. I'm going to go shopping for a bit when the moms are here though. Otherwise, sitting in bleachers are a bit much for ten to eleven hours!

    I still have a week until my spring break. Will be spending it out of town having a garage sale at the house we are trying to sell. Daughter is graduating and we don't need that house anymore since we have moved back home and bought our retirement home here.

    Anyone want to buy a house near the beach? :whistle:

    Glad to see you major :hugs:

    I'm working! :) Tutoring and admin (my work study job) doesn't get spring break off at my college. ;) But I love it so I don't mind. You all sound like you're going to be having fun!

    I know a wk goes by super fast, so I'm trying to spend every minute constructively, although I'll still relax & try to have a little fun.

    Today (Mon.) - I was planning to attend this work at home mtg tonight to see what it was about, but I know by the time the time it comes, I won't feel like going, but I'll go.

    I washed some dishes, did laundry & listened to 2 grad class lectures. I need to read as much of this chapter in my text & take the quiz to get it over with!

    Well, sadly, my spring break week is coming to a close. Monday, the 25th is a staff dev day, so I return on Tues, but overall, I had a nice break! I got to eaet some good food, which to me, is 1/2 the fun of it!

    So, I have no more holidays until I'm out for the summer. It will either drag OR zip by.

    I've still got one more week before break. We have snow in the forecast. I might not work tomorrow if the snow comes.

    I think I've started Spring Break right... Breakfast, beach, lunch, nap, dinner, read, sleep, repeat. I have some sewing, some (fun) school work, and a lot of lounging around to do.

    (Major! I missed you!)

    Spring break for me has officially started! Woohoo!

    This weekend was nasty and rainy. I stayed inside reading, watching movies and playing with my husband and two preschoolers all weekend. Yesterday (Sunday) we deep cleaned our bedroom, then went out and bought new bedding and a lamp for my nightstand.

    Today (Monday) I'm meeting a teacher friend at the zoo. We have young kids the same age who love to play together.

    I'm also planning to take my kids to the movies this week to see The Croods. We're going out of town to visit family for Easter. I'm so happy to have a week off!

    We had company in all weekend, and still do, in fact, so I'm at a bookstore working on a paper for grad school. (Clearly, if I'm posting on here, it's going well...) Today, we'll get lunch and maybe play some board games this afternoon. Tomorrow, Wednesday, and Thursday, I have drama practice for the school play. At some point this week, I need to take three animals to the vet, and my car to the shop to get repaired. I also need to fix my dryer, and clean out my junk room/office. I hope to plan ahead for the next two weeks of school so I'll be ahead and not have anything to plan the two weeks before the play. I do plan to do some relaxing: mani/pedi, catching up on my DVR, etc. I have a gift card to the movies, so I'll likely go see something at some point.

    It's official, we are renting a beach house for 3 nights (we leave this Sunday). It has a pool and Jacuzzi and the house is gorgeous. So excited to get to the beach!

    Sounds awesome, Tami!

    I'm pretending today is a snow day instead of the first official day of spring break. I'm dealing better with the nasty weather that way...

    I'm done this Fri. No big plans this year. It's spring break at the theme parks so we don't plan on going there! I upgraded my Nook ereader and lots of books downloaded from Barnes and Noble so I think I will just relax.

    My son & daughter, both college students are on spring break now. DS is in Memphis with a Discipleship group & DD is home working.

    My spring break isn't until April. I'll visit DS on Easter and then come back home & put my basement back together from when we had the house re-piped.

    I host Easter here at our home. We have a fabulous brunch planned.

    During that week I'll be headed into NYC with a couple of my college gals for a Broadway play and stay overnight.

    Maybe a day at the shore.

    2 weeks in Chicago starting on the 28th March.

    Had an email of a pal last night as we shall be meeting him in a bar called 'Boston Blackies' for a few adult beverages. Looks like they do a lot of craft beers!

    Spring break is this week. I have started some spring cleaning, caught up on some reading, worked on the honeymoon cruise scrapbook, and now I am watching March Madness!
