I am thoroughly enjoying my low-key spring break. Not that I can complain about the previous two years' literally fabulous vacations. I'd take both those trips again in a second, but there is definitely something to be said for doing nothing. Which is exactly what I'm doing this week. I've found that being at my parents' house is a major factor in my being able to guiltlessly do nothing. If I were at home, there would be chores to do and projects to complete. Here, my major responsibility is to spend quality time with my extended family. I can do that.
I've had the chance to sleep in for a couple of mornings, and I woke up on my own this morning feeling refreshed and rested. The kids have planned a series of events for our stay here, and they are about to head out to the local indoor play zone with my dad. Later today we're having lunch with my grandmother, and then the girls are going to the beading store with my mother. The only thing I have on my "to do" list in all that is the lunch part! Ahh....spring break!
