Each year at March Break, I’m always desperately torn. It’s the time that I get very restless, wanting Winter to be over and feeling that need to escape somewhere warm. March break, when the kids don’t have school, really is the ideal time to sneak away for most people. Yet at the same time – everyone does! So, speaking from past experience, I’d almost rather snuggle up to the comforts of home than fight the masses of spring-breakers.
In past years we have opted to enjoy the break close to home and take our long-distance trips during other times of the Spring months. Since the kids are young enough, missing school isn’t that much of an issue. So, why not take advantage while you can!
Kind of like an un-birthday, this year we are going to try to leave planning until last minute. Let’s call it, un-making some March break plans!
If we opt to have a staycation at home: Nice weather? Take in an outdoor activity! If the weather isn’t so pleasant? Movie and PJ days it is! Personally, I’d love to tackle some indoor chores before Spring hits and my attention is diverted outside the home. For example, I’d like to organize the laundry and storage rooms before I lose a kid in there. And, do a little redecorating in a couple of rooms that are starting to look pretty outdated.
Yet like I said, those aren’t plans – they are ideas!
OK, so I’m normally a planner by nature, so deciding to ‘wing it’ doesn’t sit very well with me. Ya, it pretty much drives me nuts.
Maybe the planets will align and we will end up deciding with only a couple days’ notice that we can sneak out of country … well, let the madness begin. Maybe I better put sunscreen, a new novel and a bathing suit on my shopping list now…
Not that I’m planning or anything, right?
