Five Minutes on "break"
I complained about how long the month of February seems. It goes on forever in those 28 days! Then came March and when I blinked it was almost over!!
This is the busy time for me in my job. We are getting near the end of the semester and the end of the academic year. My focus is on ending the year right, being ready for the summer, and preparing for next fall.
Personally, I am trying to piece together summer plans for my kids while school is out and I'm still working. My head is also full of ballet recitals, First Communion preparation, Kindergarten registration, and two birthday parties in the next few months.
I'm trying to get it all put into place so I can lift some of my own stress. And in a rare instance of perfect timing, my kids are on Spring Break next week. It's perfect because they get to visit my parents and that's good news for everyone! My parents are excited to spend some time with the kids. The kids are excited to go to Grandma and Grandpa's house (and Uncle Alan's house too). Ken and I are excited to get a break from rushed mornings, juggling events, and homework.
Instead, we get a week to ourselves. Relaxed mornings with no one to cart around. Calm evenings with no assignments, food battles, or papers to sign. Time for us!
Don't get me wrong: I love my kids and I'll miss them when they're gone. But I'm a better mom and a wife when I get a break every once in a while!
