Spring Break Wrap-Up

We enjoyed our Spring Break.  A little bit of play mixed with a little bit of productiveness made it a good one.  Here was my optimistic list for SB.  I got a lot done, but I've still got plenty to do.

  • Clean and organize my closet -- CHECK!  Very much needed.  I had a big stack of clothes on the floor that M called her "mountain" (that she could literally slide down).  'Nuff said.
  • Go the park - CHECK!
  • Get with the fam and make Easter baskets; deliver - CHECK!
  • Children's museum - CHECK!
  • Organize M's room (for the 100th time this year) - Still a work in progress.  The girl has 10x more clothes than me.   Add in all her toys and you've got a big job on your hands.
  • Christmas crafts - Did one, but we've still got another one to do. Maybe in the summer?
  • Dentist appointments - Took M for hers. DK and I are overdue.
  • Endocrinologist appointment - HATE this doctor visit, but CHECK!  I even took M with me (DK was out of town for a clinic), and she was SO good.
  • Get carpet cleaned - VERY much needed, but it didn't happen.  Got a few months left to use the Groupon.
  • Get vents and air ducts cleaned - Nope.  Another Groupon that I still have plenty of time to use.
  • Reorganize pantry and cabinets - Work in progress.
  • Start shopping for a new dishwasher - Haven't even looked for one since mine died a couple of months ago.
  • Zoo - CHECK!
  • Sleep late - Nah. My body is programmed to wake very early, and it didn't get the memo that it was Spring Break.
  • Read a book - Didn't happen.  No time.  Still trying to finish my Mary Monroe book.  Love her.  Thinking about reading the Hunger Games, too, to see what the hype is all about.
  • Our taxes - Didn't happen.  I'm sorta late on those -- I usually do them earlier.  Just really not feeling it this year.  The clock is ticking, I know.
  • Blog more - CHECK!  I blogged every day last week.  Yeah!
  • Get clothes monogrammed - Got a stack of M's spring clothes to get monogrammed.  I'll try to get it done this weekend.
  • Order M a peronalized Fresh Beat Band t-shirt - CHECK!  Concert in two weeks!
  • Take naps - That was really for ME to do when M takes HER naps, but who am I kidding? When she goes down I find myself doing stuff.
  • Send out Relay for Life emails - Didn't happen. I'll send 'em out by the weekend, hopefully.
  • Paint fingers and toes - CHECK!  I've never been a nail polish girl, but lately I've been wanting a little color.  So the first day M and DK were out of town, I treated myself to polish on my fingers and toes.  Maybe I'll find time and patience to keep it up.

...and that was about it.  I'm sure there were other things on my list that were (or weren't) done, but these were all the things that come to mind tonight.

I blogged about our "out" days during the break, but the last few days of spring break we just chilled at home.  Loved it, too. 

Back in November I bought a Crafty Kids Playhouse voucher off of Plum District (half price, of course), and had planned on it being one of M's Christmas morning gifts.  Then I sorta forgot about it and didn't think about it again until I ran across it in the back of her closet several weeks ago.  Ooops. 

Oh, well.  Makes for another great thing to do during Spring Break.


She is down for ANYTHING that involves bringing out the paints. 
She had her daddy and me in that little bitty house.  Whew, child.

She would take her books, snacks, and dolls in there. 
I painted the side with the windows, letters, shapes, and flowers. 
Her daddy painted the cool-looking side of the roof.
And all that other awesome artwork was by M herself.
I thought it was really sweet that she wanted her daddy and me to paint, too. 

Babycakes

Hope everyone's having a great week.  Just getting back into our routine around here.

Be back soon.
