My Spring Break Fantasy

So happy to have a blog accepted by Cori Howard at The Momoir Project!  Here’s an excerpt and you can read the whole thing at the link at the bottom of the post.

I’m sitting at the kitchen counter, a calendar to my left, the computer in front of me and a notepad to my right, unfinished thoughts filling the page:

March 15-19 Mum (not Mondays!) 

March 21–28 Somewhere???

What about Easter!

Several cups of unfinished tea have joined the thoughts at the table and what remains of breakfast litters the counter. The kids are at school. The house is quiet, and still I sigh.

Spring break comes every year but somehow I manage to be unprepared each time. Something weird happens to time when the kids are in school. In September, the entire year stretches ahead and Christmas seems like it’s ten years away. Then suddenly it is Christmas, and they are back to school for a few minutes before it’s Spring Break and in another few minutes, it’s Summer. I can’t keep up.
