Hopeful Thoughts


Spring Break

Everyone keeps asking me what I am going to do with a whole week off for Spring Break.  Actually, this is the first break in nearly 10 years that I will not be getting on a airplane to go somewhere.  I have nothing really scheduled, and I am thrilled to death at the prospects of what these uncommitted hours will hold.  While I have no real plans, I do have some ideas of what I will do.  This week, I plan to be a Domestic Goddess and relish in the mundane things at home.

This week:

  • I will linger over the Word with my colored pencils and several cups of coffee instead of rushing through in an effort to get to work on time.
  • I will NOT have to stare at a pile of clean laundry, as I will have time to actually fold it and put it away.
  • I will be relaxed when I enter my home because everything will actually be in place for a change.
  • I will read a book or two (I already checked one off the list when I got off work Friday!!)
  • I will visit with friends for fun and be available if they call in need of a helping hand.
  • I will practice my crafty skills by sewing and crocheting.
  • I will bake a cheesecake and cook dinner each night for my precious husband.  I will even enjoy shopping for groceries this week!
  • I will actually spend time with my husband rather than rushing off to bed or being asleep when he comes home from work.
  • I will begin to implement some of my plans for supplementing my husband’s income when I quit teaching this fall.  I am working on stock for a future Etsy store, meeting with a friend about a tutoring opportunity, and posting a few things we don’t use onto E-bay.
  • Most importantly, I will not be stressed and I will be content.
