Scenes From The Most Boring Spring Break Ever

by Jodifur on April 4, 2012

So far, my Spring Break Staycation has involved an annual check up for Michael, shoe shopping for Michael in which he got 4 pairs of shoes and I questioned how I would pay my mortgage after that (why are kids shoes so expensive?), and a tremendous amount of wii.  At one point, Michael looked at me and said, next year, can we go on a Disney Cruise instead of staying home?

Someone is a little spoiled.

Okay, so maybe I could have planned some outings like my friend Janine.  But going downtown over Spring Break week is not even a little bit appealing.  It is crowded.  And touristy.  You can go to the zoo anytime!  Why do it now?

Today we are actually going downtown to have lunch with Doug and my dad.  And tomorrow to see a show at a local children’s theater.  And Friday we are going Passover grocery shopping.  And Monday is still Spring Break.  It is never, ever going to end.

This is the part that I’m so not looking forward to next year when Noelle is in kindergarten. I do have fond memories of staying at my grandmother’s house in Wheaton for Spring/Easter break (old catholic school memories die hard) and we did the Wheaton Regional Park and zoo and Smithsonium with my cousins. How my grandmother, mom and aunt did not collapse from sheer exhaustion at the end of the week is completely beyond me.

This is the longest spring break in the history of time.

Sounds lovely. I could use a staycation.

LOL – apparently Jean is only good during the summer (Camp Stimey) but I CAN survive spring break. We usually ALWAYS get out of town to my mom’s for at least part of the week because I was terrified to be home with the kids with nothing to do for 10 days.

This year I decided the idea of traveling was worse than planning a few days of activities – and the cousin sleepover ended up being almost 2 days so that helped.

Thanks for the shout out and we’ll do better planning next year!
