Spring break, YAY! Officially, it doesn't start until next Monday, but elementary and middle school kids don't have school today or tomorrow either. Practicing for spring break?
It was just two days ago that I realized there was no school today or tomorrow. Being an Outsider crossing guard, I don't pay that close attention to the elementary school schedule. I usually find out inadvertently from one of the kids or from noticing some reference when I do my weekly e-mail purge. I'm happy to say that I have yet to go to the crosswalk on a non-school day and then wonder why no one is going to school, not even cars headed for the Kiss 'n' Ditch. But I admit that I've come close on a couple of occasions!
So never mind the fact that there is a swirling winter storm headed straight for us. The calendar says it's spring, the school schedule says it's spring...
I say SPRING! DAMMIT. I'm dreaming of being someplace tropical. With beaches and flowers, warmth and sun.
Track season has begun for the high school. Wolfgang's had two meets, but one was cancelled on account of snow *sigh*. We'll see if this weekend's suffers the same fate. He does the mile and the 4x800. Way way way back when, when I ran high school track, I was a sprinter, and we have an ongoing friendly rivalry over who the best track athletes are - sprinters or distance runners. Maybe it's neither. Maybe it's the shot puters and discus throwers - things neither of us will likely ever be good at!
Lately, however, I've been flexing my housewifery talents. Spring brings that out in me. My floors are to die for. Really, you could eat off 'em.
But don't, that would be weird. And a bit rude.
