We are on Spring Break this week ! Well, the kids are on break from school . . . and for me it's a break from the usual daily routines. At least I am not yelling in the morning to wake the kids up to rush out the door to get to school on time . Anyway, it's adventure time ! So here I am now, taking a break from the break, to get a wee bit of myLot time in. I probably won't be here a lot this week, but I'll try. I was too pooped last night to even make any attempts to come here ! What are your plans for this spring week? Will you get your myLot time in?

Thank you! Oh gosh, we've already done quite a bit - today is another day of it - and we still have more plans for the rest of the week (I actually started writing about it but deleted it because it got too long ).

Well, due to rain and gray skies for a while, would like to work in the yard, but that will not occur.

I envy you still have rain and gray skies . . . it's getting to be too warm here and will probably get hot sooner than later. We should one day make a garden so that we can work in a garden . I hope sunnier days are coming soon for you!

Most of the schools here had their spring break last week. I don't think they had a very enjoyable break since it rained almost every day last week. When I was a kid in school I can remember it raining on several spring breaks. But for the most part I think the spring breaks for the last several years have been fairly nice.

I know some other school districts that already had theirs too. I mostly can't remember a time when we've had a wet spring break - it's usually quite summery.

@much2say Even if the schools here would have had their break this week the kid would have only gotten 1 day of sunny weather. Yesterday was a very nice sunny day without a cloud in the sky until about 6 p.m. The forecast calls for rain the rest of this week and it raining right now.

@RichardMeister I would love to have 1 day of rain here! We've been outside most of the time this week . . . and as nice as it's been, I sure wouldn't mind having a break with some showers or even a gray day. I look at the forecast, and it looks like we are consistently climbing in temps.

Our spring break is next week, and we'll be going out of town. I probably won't get on much as I don't like to Mylot from my phone, and I'm not bringing any laptops.

Have fun on your trip! We aren't taking any "vacations" this week, but the kids and I have done so many things in and around here . . . the week isn't over yet! Today we will be doing chores for a bit . . . a big mess is what happens when we take a break from cleaning up . I don't like myLotting from the phone either (it's a pain!).

@much2say I will do it on my lunch break, and I might pop in from time to time while on vacation. Normally though I wait until I'm home from work and can use my desktop.

I always wondered when spring break occurred, so it's a 2 week break? See what happens when ya don't have kids?

In our school district, everyone has the same Spring Break . . . but I know other areas already had theirs. And ours is only one week. And not sure what colleges base it on.

Thanks to Mylot I know a little more about when spring break starts @much2say so for the time being I am sticking to the homefront, no sense bein on the road with all those kids that're in a hurry to do whatever it is they do.

@much2say Play would be great, but owning a house means something has to be done all the time. This morning the plumber is coming to check out a problem with a pipe in our basement. Never a dull minute!

@DianneN Oh yes, owning a house means you have to take care of it - no one else will do it (it's not like at the apartments where we could complain and then maintenance takes care of it). Next week we are getting insulation redone in the attic before the real summer weather hits!

Here kids don't have Spring Break.I don't think you can take a little break during Spring Break ,because you have to arrange your hours round kids all day and have less time to yourself,though needn't get up early.

Honestly, I think there are too many vacation days from school here. But I do enjoy having the kids home so we can fun activities. However today I am only doing a half day . . . the house has become a big mess - and we really need to take the time to do chores today. Tomorrow we will be out again!

Thanks @sishy7 ! How is the season/weather out there these days? It's supposed to be like high 70s . . . but it seems higher than that. In any case, it's perfect weather for spring break . . . so the kids and I are out and about!

@sishy7 We're not going on a "trip", but the kids and I have gone to various places - out all day! I'll have to write another post on it perhaps . Lots of fun, but so much as been let go here . . . we really need to do some cleaning here before we do anything today. Why can't the cleaning gremlins do some work while we are out?
