SOL 2019 -- Day 15 -- Let Spring Break Begin!

Slice Of Life story challenge, March 2019
Day 15 -- "Let Spring Break Begin!"

The day has come that I've been looking forward to for a while now.... As of the end of my work day today, I am now on Spring Break! 

S-P-R-I-N-G  B-R-E-A-K!  

For two whole weeks! 

T-W-O  W-H-O-L-E  W-E-E-K-S ! 

I am so very HAPPY about that! :-)

I am SO happy and relieved to have some extended time off now. For the past few months, I've been working so hard and waiting so patiently to have extra time off! I've had weekends off, a couple of single-day holidays off, and a couple of 3-day weekends. But I haven't had any longer breaks than that since Thanksgiving. That's because I switched jobs in December, and ended up forgoing my winter break. And, oh, how I missed that!

I look forward to relaxing a little during Spring Break. (A teacher absolutely needs some down time to rejuvenate the mind and the body before going back to teaching again.) But I also have a "To-Do" list which is a mile long, and some appointments to go to. And of course, I want to get together with some friends from where I used to work. And I absolutely want to spend time playing with my grandchildren. And I want to read! And write! And get ahead on schoolwork for the spring quarter, which starts April 1. And....And....And!

How will I get it all accomplished? I probably won't. But I'm sure going to give it a good try! I'm starting the break with high hopes for the promising two weeks ahead. 

Ahhh, the possibilities.... :-)

  1. Love that you're embracing the possibilities. And two weeks off might even be long enough to make a dent in your To Do list. Don't forget to celebrate your accomplishments with a Ta Da list!

  2. Two weeks sounds delicious. Hope you were able to tackle some of that to-do list and then find time for yourself to enjoy. How old are your grandchildren? Hope you are knee deep in hugs and snuggles!

  3. I could your tension between relaxation and productivity. I hope you found a balance!
