It was just last Friday, a week ago I was jumping for joy that I'd have a whole week to accomplish a while lotta things that I've been unable to complete due to my 6 days per week work schedule with 1 planning period per day compared to others with 2.
I was excited because the kid and I would be visiting my mom and family in MCLo after being away for almost 2 years. I had plans to grade student projects, start my online course for certification and write for the blog.
None of that happened! #letthstsinkin Well I did complete 2 modules of my online course. Everything else was a no go. Lolol!
I came here initially to apologize. To say how sorry I am that I've started 3 posts and haven't finished one. Truth is I'm ok with that. Some items on the Springbreak To Do List have been marked off.
We did come home. We rode the greyhound bus for the first time. And can I tell you that was an adventure before the adventure. I'm not quite sure I'll do it again EVER!! My legs. Ears. Eyes. Mindset CAN NOT handle it. What I won't do is be ungrateful that we had a safe trip that took forever. #Jesusbeajet
Rest. Have I rested? Yes indeed. Of course. Not enough. I'm a country girl. From a town so small there's no Walmart, Target or mall. It affords me the chance to plug into nature and chill alllllll the way out.
If you follow my Instagram account you were able to experience the peace for 17 seconds. Mom and I took walks that included looking at homes built in the 1900s that have been restored and passed down to children. Some are even historic sites. We collected ideas to screen in her porch in the future and finish off some small home improvement projects she's working on. I was finally able to see Selma the Movie. Whew y'all that was intense!!! We have plans to see Anne and celebrate my cousins 40th birthday. #moregoodeats Yep, the fun hasn't fully come to a halt.
My sister made Sunday dinner and we caught up. I visited other family members. Ate homemade cornbread and cheesecake. I sleep past 9 'o clock and went to bed after 3 am. I did exactly what I came to do. NOTHING and I've loved every minute of it.
So much that it is hard to think about Monday (inserts sad face). Technically, I still have the weekend but I have a lot of work to catch up on when I return to school AND testing season is upon us. That's approximately 2 months of a modified schedule as well as planning for graduation (I'm on the committee ). If you know anything about how standardized testing affects schools, you'll reach out and virtual hug me.
But until my final day of springbreak concludes, I'll be content in the blessing of having had a getaway that including spending time with my mom, extended family, good eats, exercise and the promise that summer break is next.
Hope your springbreak was adventurous or will be, muah! If you bask in the sun beachside and forget to return calls, do know that it is perfectly ok. Be guilt free!! Allow yourself the time to be renewed. I did but it sure is gonna be hard to say......
