Let me preface this post by saying I do love my job. It's just that I need a break in a bad way. I am pretty certain my students are going to like me better when I return from spring break.
We kicked off spring break with prom last night. Ella Kate stayed with my mom and dad, and B and I got to dress up and watch everyone break it down for a few hours. We loved it. We even slept past daybreak this morning. Then we did what all the cool people do the morning after prom...we headed out to Lowe's where we spent a small fortune and returned to work in the yards. We have a fairly large patio out back and it's surrounded by shrubs...tons of shrubs...layers and layers of different shrubs. I announced my plan to remove these about 2 weeks ago. My husband, knowing he would be the "remover of the shrubs", shook his head and said nothing. But being the fine man that he is, the shrubs on 2 out of 3 sides are gone as of today. He worked HARD all afternoon. I told him thank you, but if you could see the shrubs piled by the road, you would understand. A "thank you" kind of seems inadequate. Ella Kate and I appreciate you, B.
We have other "fun" projects planned this week along with B's softball game, Uncle J's baseball game, and a beach trip for a day. We might even throw in some lake time. It's nice to have a week ahead without a schedule and tons of time to play with Ella Kate. Happy Saturday!
