Spring Break...almost here!

Today was a beautiful 68 degrees! A perfectly lovely spring day and tomorrow we are scheduled to get snow...1-3 inches. Hard to believe, but that's Nebraska weather. If you don't like it, just wait 24 hours and it will change. The weather for Saturday is 50 degrees, so that should take care of any snowfall!

Well...last year I made a list of what I plan to do over Spring Break and I'm going to do it again. It's fun for me to see how much of it I can really accomplish. I'm sure none of you care, but it's kind of goal setting for me. Here's what's planned...

1. Dentist appointments -- not mine, but the kids (Yay, for me!)

2. Dog groomed -- again, not for me (Yay, maybe indirectly because Ranger will smell better!)

3. Paint north wall in living room -- I think I tried this last break and I'm finally going to get it done.

4. Circus - We have tickets to go Friday night, minus Tyler (too cool for that kind of entertainment)

5. Scrapbook - I am booked at Archiver's (my happy place) with my friend Amy on Sunday afternoon. This brings me excessive joy!

6. Clean the house - Okay, when is that not on my list to do. Ugh!

7. Read "Alice in Wonderland" now that the movie inspired me. I can't recall the last time I read any kind of literature that was written over 100 years ago. I usually read People magazine, so what does that say?

8. Report cards - I'm only going to do one section over break....the hardest, which is Character Development.

9. Laundry - That goes along with house cleaning...when am I not doing that? I can easily check this one as done.

10. Hair appointment - I desperately need of a haircut!

Now that I look over this small list, I'm exhausted. Maybe I should just commit to playing on the computer, that looks more obtainable!

Anyway, Happy Spring!

looks like it will be a very (and needed) break!

Hum, my spring break isn't for another three weeks. Bummer.
Last year I blogged about what I was going to get done on spring break, it's now one of my biggest hits and I get them from all over the world. You'll have to let me know if it's the same for you.

Have a great break Amy - you've earned it!

Mamma-- You are correct. I get more hits on my last year's Spring Break to do list than anything else. It must be the thing to google..."Spring Break". Bummer that yours isn't sooner! My sister teaches in Kansas City and hers was this week and I was sooo jealous!
