Spring Break...Yuck!

Would I be a terrible mom to admit that I really don't like Spring Break?  The last thing in the world I wanted to do was to be home with my kids for 8 straight days.  I mean I love them and all, but after all the days off for snow...I tell you I need a break from my children.

So this year, even though I get to sleep in a little, I say 'Yuck' to Spring Break.  I am absolutely unprepared for Easter.   We go to church regularly, but I still partially honor the tradition of getting new duds for Easter.  But so far there are no new clothes, and little motivation to get out to the stores.   I already ate the jelly beans and the house is, and no doubt will remain, a mess.

Monday started off well enough.  It was a beautiful day and we spent a good part of it outdoors.  I set up a makeshift tent on the deck, tethered the dogs to a tree on a long lead and we all hung out.      The dogs laid all over Noelle in her tent and the boys ran around with their Nerf gun playing dodge dart.   I spent the time reclining on the deck shopping for inventory for my shop.  It was actually a pretty good day come to think of it.

We planned to watch the Lunar Eclipse, but it was cloudy and overcast so that was a bust.  Yesterday it rained all day long.

Today it's cold.  Wednesday is really a hump day for me.  I think I am going to lay in bed all day long.  Maybe I will re-binge watch "Game of Thrones" if I can convince Noelle to shadow someone else today.

Right now Noelle is laying next to me in bed yikkity yakking about the iPad.  I am fully confident she will be under me for most of the day.  In fact she is so close to me that when I type our elbows bump. Jon is downstairs with his friend from school.  No doubt they are stuck on the sofa watching TV or playing video games.  Q is still asleep. I will know he is awake when the screaming and name calling starts.  The puppies are quiet which means Jon has them stuck in their pens, or they are chewing up the sofa.

Spring Break for me is really no break at all!

Well at least True Grit with John Wayne is on.  It's 10:00am and I already feel a nap coming on.

Did I say "Yuck" already?
