The Bliss of Spring Break

As a person who has been involved in worship production/leading in one form or another for the last XX years, it was incredibly refreshing to realize that I would have NO major church responsibilities this year and I could…




Wait, what??!?

Yes, it is true. I shelled out a bazillion dollars and tucked my two sweeties away in Spring Break Day Camp at the local YMCA and I:

  • Slept
  • Watched 17 episodes of Grey’s Anatomy (I’m still digging through Season 9 – NO spoilers, please)
  • Slept
  • Watched a few movies
  • Slept
  • Unpacked and/or threw away about 6 boxes from storage
  • Slept
  • Read
  • Slept

I know that this seems like a strange post for a homeschooling blog, but there is something really important that I learned this week.

I need more breaks.

I don’t mean to say I didn’t know this before, but now I KNOW it. I realize that the lack of breaks worked into my schedule is what has driven this bus straight to Burnoutville, Population 2 (I’m counting Butterfly in there, too).

So there you go. Lesson learned.

Now I need to make it count for the rest of the school year.
