Well, it's here, the last day of spring break. I have been fighting the Sunday blues paired with the final day of break and retreated into a book which led to a nap. Great way to spend my last day, right? Well, that depends on your perspective. After I woke up I scrolled my feed on Bloglovin' and found a post from Cathy and Stella. Both put that positive spin on the final day which helped me to see that my choice for a nap and reading were perfect choices for the day! So borrowing their perspective and format here's my break in review.
The freedom of time and lack of schedules helped me be home with my husband as he slowly recovers from back surgery. He requires medication around the clock to keep his pain manageable and knowing I didn't have an alarm the next morning made this easier on both of us.
Our oldest daughter who is in college came home a bit more often to help with her dad and spend time with the family. It's always great to have everyone under one roof!
With the support of my mother-in-law and my daughters I did manage to sneak out and enjoy a few hours to have lunch with a friend. We explored a few new places and landed on a great chocolate shop! I am sure we will revisiting this stop!
My husband and watched a few movies we've been wanting to see for while now. We also discovered our favorite Chinese places DELIVERS! This might have been my favorite discovery of the week!
My youngest daughter and I went away for 2 days, just us! I don't often get untagged time with my youngest, so this was a special time for both of us. We traveled to a few universities just a few hours from home. Although neither university seemed to fit her just right we had a great time just begin together. The hot tub at the hotel and open conversations were the highlights of our time together.
I did find time for more reading and commenting than I typically have, I did read a bit of a book (my daughter insists I read it, but honestly it's moving s-l-o-w, it actually puts me to sleep, shh!) and I have more time to write. I finally completed a math post I had been working on for over a month!
So as today turns into to tomorrow I am packing the perspective shared in Cathy and Stella's blog into my pocket to pull out and use again tomorrow as my class and I rejoin for sharing and learning together.
