Either they think I spend way more time on there than I really do...or I spend way more time on there than I think I do.
So, it's a win-win.
My two online jobs have ended, which gives me a break until JULY. How awesome is that? That leaves me with (just!) two jobs for the spring, and I'm beyond thrilled.
Today I work at the church and hopefully get to attend Bible study, then it's Public School Week so I'll go walk a mile with Noble after lunch. Or, if it's like every year I've done this with Kayci, I'll walk around holding someone else's kid's hand while my kid runs ahead.
Tomorrow is a commute day, and it feels a bit like going into battle but that's just part of the job this time of year. I'll survive, because once I hit the road tomorrow night, I'm on SpRiNg BrEaK, baby! And we have no plans beyond celebrating my baby's 6th birthday. That looks pretty good from here!
We have really enjoyed a slower pace on the weekends this semester, and I hope that will extend to Spring Break.
Life's been a little crazy this school year, and it's made me realize it truly is the little things that make me happy...and it's the absence of these little things that steal my happy.
Cooking makes me happy. This cheddar chowder recipe is awesome, and from an awesome friend. We ate it a few weeks ago at their house and taking time to go out there and just visit with them made me happy. We haven't done that enough this school year.
Being at home on the weekends makes me happy, because it gives us time to slow down. Saturday night the kids cooked dinner and baked dessert (sporting their new aprons from Grandma).
Volunteering at the kids' schools makes me happy. PTO bought green eggs & ham for every kid at Krause this Monday, and then we got to serve. It was a blast!
And with that, I've got to get a few e-mails sent before I head to church/work.
What makes you happy? What could you focus on during Lent that would make a big difference in how you feel, how your days go?
