Dear Teacher

What I Did on my Summer Spring Vacation
By Jill
 
 
 
 
 
 
Well, I had hoped to go for lots of walks under blue skies.
Instead, here's how it went down:
 
Days 1,2 and 3:  Daughter home with strep throat.
 
 
Day 4:  Plowing the 5" of snow that fell and spreading
100 pounds of sand and 100 pounds of salt on my driveway skating rink
\and learning that I actually needed about 1000 pounds of sand.
Getting the oil changed on the car.
 
Day 5:  Plowing another 2" of snow.
Washing bedding of sick daughter.
 
Certainly not what I had planned
but it was good to be home for awhile.
I did get a lot of stamping done so
I can't complain.
 
Few signs of spring here.
Hope you're enjoying yours!

Hoep your daughter is feeling better. I have never had it but both my girls have and they have been miserable.
Glad to know that you atleast did something for yourself, Stamping. TFS. ana

Lynne said...

Looks like you had a bit "of the blue" to enjoy!

Paula said...

Glad that you both survived:)

Ellie said...

Oh dear that's a shame, especially that your daughter wasn't well. I hope she is feeling much better now.

You have already had spring break? With snow? sandie

EG CameraGirl said...

Most of what you did doesn't sound at all relaxing...but the change from the normal routine is usually good for revitalizing the spirit.

Paula said...

Wow still snow? It was in the 90's here today. I'm dreading summer.

Catherine said...

Dearest Jill, My heart is with you. I know you must be tired and were grateful for a hot cup of tea or coffee and a moment.
I hope that your daughter is feeling better and that you take care not to catch a cold too.
Blessings, Catherine xoxo

I hope Becky is feeling better!

I am done with winter and snow, I am hoping spring comes quickly. :)

Nancy Claeys said...

So sorry that Becky was sick -- hope she is better Jill.

Being at home to take care of things is a joy. :)

Jeanne said...

Love the picture. Don't know whether to laugh or cry about your vacation. Ya gotta have a sense of humor. Life is like that!

Susan said...

Isn't that the way it happens! It is just good sometimes to be home.

Madi and Mom said...

Hi Jill I hope and pray Becky is on the mend and no one else comes down with strep. Oh do I remember the days when it took over our house.

Good news is you didn't have to take any time off from work to look after Becky since you were home! :-)
Hugs Cecilia and Madi

Rosemary said...

Vacation plans get trumped by real life, a good thing (you're available) and a bad thing (not much of a vacation or relaxation). I'm glad you were able to take care of your daughter though, strep throat is completely unenjoyable :(

Sonya @ Under the Desert Sky said...

Ugh. I hope she's feeling better, now.

Buttons said...

Jill I do hope she is feeling better and spring comes soon for you. Hug B

Michaele said...

The best laid plans....
Glad Becky had you home to take care of her and that you got in some stamping time : )

Saun said...

We have snow too! I start spring break Friday. Hopefully sunny skies and warm weather is on its way.
