I love spring break. Love it. I love it because I don't have to do anything on Sunday night--I can just work out, and go to sleep. I love it because I don't have to do anything ever, except read maybe. And some homework. But it's STRESS FREE because I know I have a whole week to just ease into my responsibilities. I don't have to wake up early. I don't have to go to bed early.
I am also free of the crisis that happened last spring break. I will not give you any details, but I can be honest in saying I had a nervous breakdown and it affected everything. My marriage. My friendships. My grades. You name it, it was screwed up. It also wasn't my fault. I had no control over what happened, or the way I reacted to it.
But, it's been a long year. I have come a long way. Even if my body is the same my heart is much stronger.
So, there you have it. I love spring break. I love that Joey and I got to sleep in until 10:30 today (I usually enforce wake-ups at 8:30 or 9) and I didn't feel bad about it. I love that he went to get groceries without me so that I could relax. I love that I got to make white chicken chili and it was DELICIOUS. Beyond my expectations. Didn't even use a recipe. I looked at a recipe for about two minutes, figured out how I wanted to make it, and just threw it together. Because I'm awesome.
AND I love that I have the apartment to myself, so I can just work out, journal, then have some tea and watch Downton Abbey. And there's no Sunday school in the morning (hubby and I just started teaching a class of 6th graders) so we don't have to get up early.
Sigh. I'm a happy girl right now.
