Today I am back at work, probably inundated with new students to register for school. After any holiday or at the end of a term, we lose students and we gain students, making my job extremely busy. The problem with being busy today is that my brain will not be working like it should. It will be sluggish. That’s what happens after a break.
But what a great Spring Break it was. We bought a brand new couch on Monday! What makes this special is 1) We were given money to buy a couch, and 2) It was the second new furniture purchase we have ever made! I know, you saying, What? Your kidding, right? You see, when you are in the ministry, you don’t have a lot of extra money, and people know that, so they give you things. That is a huge blessing in our lives, truly, but it makes it oh-so-special when we can purchase something of our choosing. Here is a picture of the couch we chose.
The second best thing about Spring Break is that I got to sit on my new couch with my laptop and write. I critiqued, I wrote, I edited, and I blogged. Yes, I even changed my blog layout…in case you hadn’t noticed. The other was getting to busy for me. I got more done than I expected, which makes my heart smile.
The third best thing about Spring Break was I got to watch movies. My husband and I began Downton Abbey, which is excellent. March Madness has gotten in the way, and I am threatening to continue the series without my husband. I watched some chick flicks…The Switch, Morning Glory, and Life As We Know It. All good. (Well, The Switch was just so-so.)
And the fourth best thing about Spring Break is I got to read. There’s nothing like reading in bed late at night, knowing you don’t have to get up early. There’s also nothing like reading in bed until 10 or 11 in the morning. So indulgent. Let’s see…I read Deep Trouble by Mary Connealy (a galley copy on my Kindle from NetGalley.com) Very good, and my review will come out later in April, before the book is released. I then I started several other books. I am reading them all at once, so I haven’t finished any of them. I am reading Plan B by Pete Wilson, The Art & Craft of Writing Christian Fiction by Jeff Gerke, and The Glory of Green by Judy Christie. All very good, so far.
That was the extent of my Spring Break. I didn’t go anywhere, since I didn’t have a car, and that was fine by me!
What did YOU do for Spring Break? Or what are your plans if you haven’t had your Spring Break yet?
