Will I Make it Through This Week?
This is our last week of school before a week-long spring break. This winter has been especially rough.... the polar vortexes (is that the right word?) have brought nasty cold and snow over and over again, keeping me and my family inside more than usual. Add to that the crazy assignment schedule for some coursework my district is requiring for my job and some personal things I'm struggling with, and you get a big ol' mountain of overwhelmed.
I need sun.
I need warm breezes.
I need time with my girls and my guy to just do nothing if we so choose.
I need to find me again.
This year for spring break, we decided to take a few days and head out of town - south, but not more than a day's drive, just to get away from HERE. I'm hoping this week-long hiatus from the routine will help me get my head in a good place to finish out the school year strong.
I'm already thinking about next year, and ways that it can be better.
I've got plans and ideas; now I just need to figure out how to make those ideas work. I need to reach out to some people I know for help along the way.
That, my friends, might just be the hardest thing of all.
