By the end of today, I will officially be on break. We didn't take a Spring Break because our school is getting out in early May, but we are at least getting a little extra time around Easter. And I have big plans for my days off.
It seems like most everything in my life right now is running just a little bit behind. My to-do list is piling up in a way that makes me wake up in flop sweats in the middle of the night. It's like I can feel it staring at me with its ticking clock and mounting demands. It's really kind of annoying. I mean, if I am going to have a million things to do, the least my brain can do is give me a good night's sleep, right? But instead I wake up at 3:00 thinking about work stuff and and side job stuff and just life stuff in general and it's all starting to push me just a little to close for the edge for someone with six weeks left in the semester...
What was I saying? Oh, yeah. I really need a break. I'm hoping to not just do the laundry or scrape the hairspray off the bathroom surfaces. I want to take pictures (it's supposed to be pretty this weekend), and hug on my niece, and just breathe for a minute with no other plans or intentions. And I want to especially celebrate what Easter stands for with my family.
Are any of you getting a little extra time off? Got big plans? Well, let me hear all about them in the comments! (I am hoping to have a little time over break to spend more time visiting some of your blogs too! I've gained ten followers just this week, and I haven't done a great job keeping up with everyone! But I promise I will get there!)
