Spring Break 2011

..and not a plan has been made. Today was the first full day and what did we do?? Nothing too terribly special.

 The vehicle did not move. I got to sleep in a tad bit because I purposely let them stay up, drink caffeine, and ingest ungodly amounts of sugar last night  then made a huge breakfast of cinnamon pancakes (w/ real maple syrup mixed with melted butter- try'll never eat pancakes without it!), 'Bob's Red Mill' Oat Bran Hot Cereal (w/ smashed up pecans, cream & brown sugar..yum-o!), fruit, yogurt, and juice. *It's 6:30 pm and I'm STILL full!* After what seemed like 5 years of kitchen cleaning, I had them on wall scrubbing duty of which they did a stellar job I should mention. This was followed by a big group "reading time with mommy" on my bed, with everyone (except for me of course...ew.) in their undies.

We then decided that much of the daylight had been wasted indoors so the clothes went on and into the sunlight we went. I found that my clubhouse-building skills were rusty but we successfully got one to stand up to the wind and I left them to be silly and giggly with the neighbor kids. I took the opportunity to go through some SD cards, clear out the email accounts, reply to a couple ignored Facebook messages and now here I am. Hello! ^_^

Overall (and so far) the day has been a success and that feels wonderful! I can't think of any place we could have gone or anything we could have done that would have made it any better or special.

Off to make another meal for the offspring...


  1. You are an amazing mom! I am totally serious. You are making wonderful memories for those offspring of yours. Now I want to watch Finding Nemo...I love Crush lol :)

  2. You inspire me to make a full-out meal for my kiddos like that. Righteous.
    I am so proud of you. You love your job, I can tell!

  3. I'm in awe. You are a great! GREAT! Mom
