Gimme' a (spring) break...



It is that time of year again, spring break.  When I was young it was called Easter vacation and "Spring Break" was for the girls in Florida that end up on "Girls Gone Wild" videos.  But since it is now politically incorrect to acknowledge religious holidays anymore, it is now "spring break" for one and all.  And today I am wondering what it is a break from?

For my kids it is a break from school and homework, piano lessons and all other extra-curricular.  Which for me means a break from driving.  It also means sleeping in a bit, which is sooooo my thing.  But as I stare down 7 loads of laundry, I am discovering it is not a complete break for me.  It is not a break from making meals, doing dishes, and breaking up fights.  I think you have to go out of town for that.

So I think I am going to Florida, or maybe just Lake Mead and make a "Mom's Gone Wild" video.  I am going to sport my sexiest tankini, drink the strongest sparkling cider I can find, until I pass out.  I am going to play beach volleyball, enter a wet stretch mark contest and make-out with my husband (then he has to leave).  I am going to sunburn parts of me I didn't even know I had and get a tatto that says "Team Edward."    I am going to sleep in a strange mom's bedroom and "drunk" dial old boyfriends to let them know what they are missing.

Yea that is what I am going to do.  But first, I have to finish the laundry.

The wet stretch mark contest is MINE, ALL MINE! Oh my gosh, Mom's gone wild...brilliant. We would probably have to let our kids get past us without telling them to blow their noses~that would be a serious escape from routine.

You can count me in on that trip, I'd like to get sunburned in places I didn't know about too.

Stopping in from SITS and glad I did!

Actually, I think I will win the wet stretch mark contest. My stretch marks have stretch marks. I was never meant to be this fat - it just happened. It was like a freak accident. I'm all for the Moms Gone Wild - I thought that was the Utah PTA Convention - which I've had to miss out on for a couple of years now. But it's pretty close!
