Spring Break

This year the one-week break for kids and teachers has netted me a driver's side window that won't roll up, a driver's seat that won't move back, and laryngitis. It could be worse, and because it isn't over yet, I'm not holding my breath that it won't get worse. I believe in the old saying, "Don't count your chickens before they hatch."

We've had some beautiful days this year to kick off spring, but it's Kansas, so the weathermen are predicting a little snow to greet those kids and teachers as they go back to school on Monday. If nothing else, the weather here isn't boring, and it's that time of year to have winter clothes for cold days, while dragging out some of the more summery things for other days. It keeps life interesting. ☺

I wish I could say I've accomplished something over this past week, but so far that hasn't happened. The book proposal I should be working on is sitting silently next to the keyboard on which I'm typing, still not done, but beginning to call very loudly. (Yes, it's true. Inanimate objects do have a voice!) I'm ignoring it, but will have to do something about it later. There's always the weekend, I tell myself, but I know that's nothing more than a procrastination tool. I am so-o-o-o-o good at those. Too bad I'm not good at doing the things that need to be done.

So Happy Spring Break to those who are lucky enough to be able to enjoy it! And for the rest of us? Life will get back to normal in just a few days, so hang in there!
