When the last bell rings at 2:45 today I will, for the next week, become the woman I'm destined to be. Waking up at 9:00 (or so), drinking coffee, surfing a bit (no comments, tdub!), possibly cleaning up and going for lunch with a friend, or staying grungy and puttering about in the yard working on flowerbeds, maybe painting a picture, then whipping up a delightful dinner for Tdub and the four numbered children, blogging about my "charmed" life, then retiring with a good book or more likely catching up on blog reading. All the while knowing that I'll still be receiving a paycheck in a few weeks.

I love Spring Break.

It is posts like these that make me wish that I became a TEACHER and not an ATTORNEY. Enjoy the break! ;-)

Well....if it's any comfort to you...I'll let you know that it was a corportate ATTORNEY (and his wife) who graciously invited me to ride in the LIMO with them as opposed to the van the company had for the rest of us...when I visited NYC for the first time(courtesy of the Tdub's company). So, I rode in a LIMO from JFK to the Waldorf Astoria....because of the ATTORNEY. so...i think it evens out at some point.

Yes, yes, yes. . . There are tradeoffs. I love my silver Solara convertible with the temperature control and 6 CD stereo. :-)

Soak it all up, Grace... enjoy every moment! I have many teacher friends, and from what I've seen those are well-earned breaks! I'll be thinking of you while I'm having my coffee in the a.m. too!

Your Mississippi friend!

You'll have time to make cookies and mail them out, right???? ;-) haha!

Glad to know you're getting a break. You definitely will enjoy it, and I think we all need times to rest. So, enjoy!!!

I realized this past year that I had over three months off of work... I think six is about right... haha!

Angie and Jenny: Thanks! Even though we've never met your friendship and our sisterhood in Christ comforts me!

Emery: With all that time off...I'm thinkin' the cookies will be HERE when you come to visit us and you can enjoy them then! I'm sure you could also convince #4 to whip you up a batch of mini-muffins.
