Peace, quiet, perhaps some sand, the sound of waves, meals that someone else made involving all the food groups, sunshine, happiness......is that not what you think of when you hear the word "break?" Yeah, me too. I hate to be the one to mention it but I think the word break is a little misleading. It holds promise but it never delivers. This is not the case for everyone. I mean a kid on Joe's lacrosse team is enjoying his break in Hawaii. I think money may have a small part in whether your break is really a break or not. We never go anywhere for break and that is perhaps why our break is not really a break. Ours should probably be called:
Spring "see our friends every waking minute"
Spring "see how long we can keep mom in the car",
Spring "dirty every cup in the house,"
OR (my personal favorite)
Spring "make messes you do not intend to clean up without some good weeping and wailing action."
But I will say we got a small hike in before it rained on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. I introduced Joe to Romancing The Stone and Star Trek Generations. I read an entire book about the tragedy of the whaling ship Essex on Wednesday. We ended up organizing my fabric on Wednesday night. And tomorrow the weather is supposed to be nice so we are going to climb to the most popular waterfall in Connecticut. So take that....people lounging in Hawaii without a care in the world. :)
