Moms Gone Wild: My plans for spring break

So, spring break is upon us and I'm loving it. This is the only week in the semester that I have to catch up on all that I have neglected and blamed on school.

On my TO DO list:
finish painting the front hall
organize my hubby's office (call and make sure it doesn't consume me, will ya girls?)
file our taxes
refile my FAFSA
clean every room in the house spotless and yell at anyone that lets in the tiniest speck of dirt (like a real mom would do)
paint my downstairs bathroom
clear off my back porch
organize my house better
try to acquire some more furniture for my sparse living room
find a little "me" time
and continue in the neverending battle against the forces of evil (it's a part-time job but the hubby likes the costume)

I, of course, will not accomplish all this but it's worth a try. I would also love to sleep in but will still need to get up to get the kiddos off to school. Speaking of, we took the kids and their friend to Brighton yesterday and it was the first time that I went along. I must tell you that there is nothing quite like seeing your little ones navigating the slopes on a snowboard like a pro. My girl even rode the lift by herself for the first time. That was pretty scary for a mom, but I soon saw that she knew what she was doing and I didn't need to fear.

New stuff with me:
I am in the middle of reading The Chronicles of Narnia and I'm loving them. I'm on the second book, The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe. I didn't know if they were going to be too ambitious of a read, but it is written for a younger audience and is pretty enjoyable. They made me want to see that movie that they made about it.

I also had to change one of my classes to an audit because the stress of a full load was not helped by the fact that this particular class is completely dull, difficult, and taught by a professor that is somewhat dry. No offense, but I've been in college for almost 8 years and I think I have some knowledge on the subject.

Well, that will be all for now. You may all proceed with your lives until I have something else of significance to share. Love ya!

You really won't finish all of that. I don't want to know about your costume. It sounds like you caught what Bree had. Sushi should help. And I totally could not help but think Better Off Dead when you said that last part. "I've been going to this school for 8 years, I'm no dummy." Or better yet, from Tommy Boy:
Tommy: "There are plenty of people who go to college for eight years."
Richard: "Yes. They're called doctors."

Ooh, so the Chronicles of Narnia are my favorite series, and I like a lot of series. But they're not as light of a read as you think if you pay close attention to things, especially once you get towards the end. There's some pretty deep religious stuff there.

Yeah, I've picked up on a lot of the religious meanings pretty quick. I've heard people talk about it but didn't think it was that apparent until now. I say "Yeah for spiritualism".

I say you should read the Tales of the City series by Armistead Maupin. Heeeeelarious. Takes place in San Fran (like London in a lot of ways) and wacky wacky wacky! You forgot on your to-do list to "buy beer and kick it."
