Slice of Life #27- The Countdown is On….

Spring break is only a few days away.  It feels like winter break was ages ago, so spring break is much-needed at this point.  Since winter break we have had midterms, PARCC testing, and lots and lots of meetings.  I’m planning to spend this weekend reading 76 rough drafts and providing feedback via Googledocs, so needless to say  I am daydreaming about spring break.

I can’t wait to read books.  Lots and lots of books.  That’s my first plan for spring break.  I am looking at my packed bookshelves and creating lists of all the books I want to read during the week.

I can’t wait to sleep past 5:45am.  Do I need to explain that one?

I can’t wait to take the dogs hiking.  Right now our hikes are limited by my working hours and the time the sun sets.  But during spring break we can take longer walks and hikes.  Hopefully the weather cooperates, too!

I can’t wait to binge watch a bunch of TV. I don’t even care what it is.  I just want to spend a few hours vegging on the couch without something hanging over my head.

I can’t wait to write.  Again, do I need to say more?

I can’t wait to sit outside and read.  And watch my birds.  (Again, I am thinking positively about the weather).

I just can’t wait!

Four more school days.  That’s all that stands between me and spring break!

Spring Break!

Finally. Finally. FINALLY!  Spring break is here!

The months between winter break and spring break were way too long this year.  Spring break at the end of April?  Sheesh.  This break is so desperately needed.  So excited to settle in for #bookaday, updating the blog, planning my week-long summer camp, and spending time with Dublin.  Hopefully, that means the blog will be updated a lot over the next few days.  But first- I am off to NYC and Broadway tomorrow!

Back to School….Over the Hump!

Tomorrow it is back to school, after a wonderful spring break. Only 2.5 months of school left- summer break here we come!

I am looking forward to jumping back into our poetry unit, telling my students about my coffee date with Kathi Appelt, and continuing our Holocaust read-aloud and book clubs. That alarm is going to sound awfully loud, awfully early tomorrow! It’s always a jolt when you spend a week and a half relaxing. But back to the grind we must go. :)

Spring Break Wonderfulness

I am on spring break this week and thoroughly enjoying myself.  Lots of time to read, watch Law & Order reruns (my guilty, guilty pleasure), cook, and shop!  Hopefully I can get a lot of books and reviews knocked out this week.  Should be a relaxing week!  


And maybe I should knock some of that stuff off my to-do list.  I made an appointment for an oil change tomorrow!  And I finished my APR.  I just have a lot more to cross off.  ;)

Spring Break!

I am officially on spring break!  I can’t wait to rest, recharge, and read.  :)

If you are on spring break, what are you planning to read over the next few days?
