Spring Break?

March 28, 2008

My kids (well my son at least) is on Spring Break from school next week – my daughter won’t be in school until next fall. But, it is officially Spring Break in our house tomorrow afternoon when school ends…..and guess what I get to do for Spring Break? Are you ready for this………this is good!

I get a 9 day break from being a parent……9 whole days! 9 yummy days! My husband’s Mom and Step-Dad are coming here – that’s right, they are driving all the way here, to pick up my kids and take them home for the entire week! I know I should pretend that I’m going to miss my kids like crazy (and I will) but the truth is, I can’t wait for a break from the day to day stress of being mommy – especially since I started to work full-time. It’s draining to be a full time mom and a full time employee!

 I am really excited to have some time to focus on just my husband and I. The last year has been really stressful for us – more than I can express. I’ve been aware on many occasions of how that stress is effecting our relationship – we are not a couple who argues, but in the last few months, we have argued more than we have in probably the last few years. We just need some time to focus on our relationship – and I think we will get much more of that with the kids gone. It’s not like our marriage is in trouble, but I want to keep it from getting to that place you know?

So, my kids will spend the next 9 days having a blast and being spoiled rotten by 2 sets of Grandparents (both of my husband’s parents live nearby each other) – they probably won’t miss us at all. And me? I will be relishing a little time to refocus and recharge,

Now, if I could just get the next 9 days off of work with pay…we would really be in business!
