So today is Saturday which means that I have two days left of spring break. I totally did not do anything on my "to do" list. Frankly, I didn't even make a "to do" list. It rained a lot, so we watched a whole bunch of movies. And I've been reading "Rhett Butler's People" which is "Gone With The Wind" from Rhett's perspective. And I've cooked a lot and done dishes at least 1,000 times. I've played Littlest Pet Shop and Babies and read more picture books than I can count. I spent several hours at Sacred Heart Children's Hospital and took care of a recovering child. I've gone grocery shopping and to Costco. I made it to the movies once and tried the new Coldstone Creations. I took Julianna to a birthday party and watched as my baby turned into a little girl. I went out to lunch with my husband and we talked about the past and the present and the future. I spent a loud, exhausting day chasing a two year old around Chuck E. Cheese's. I moved Julianna's crib out of her room and replaced it with a toddler bed in anticipation for her big girl bed in a couple of weeks. And I have spent the last few nights wondering how such a little girl needs to go potty so many times right after she goes to bed. And wondering how she can possibly still be so awake at 10:47pm after being put to bed at 8:00pm. (I figured that one out though, when I went in and found a huge stack of books in her bed. Up reading 'til all hours of the night? Wonder where she gets that?) So, no, my spring cleaning didn't get done. And my 4th quarter lesson plans didn't get made. And no big events happened. But my mind and heart got a little spring cleaning. And now I think I can make it through the next 9 weeks of kindergarten. And if the sun ever comes out, I know I can make it.
