Winter Break Is Over

Crazy as it seems I actually am just coming off of my last day of winter break. I work in the school system and am fortunate to have Christmas break in December, winter break in February, and spring break in April.

A majority of people that I work with traveled to some warm, sandy beach, pass the tropical drink location. For me, with two girls in college, I had a stay-cation!

Well no, actually it wasn’t really because I  didn’t do any sightseeing in my own town. So it was more like a “my time is my own, and therefore I will do whatever the hell I want all week”.  Yes, that kind of staycation.
The first few days I worked to get some KonMari method organizing done.  If you don’t know what I am talking about, eventually I will devote a blog  post to my pursuit of tidying and simplifying my home. This weeks tidying was my books and papers.  I also cleaned and organized the refrigerator.
I devoted one whole day to preparing income taxes and the FAFSA financial aid form for college.  I had my teeth cleaned.  I enjoyed preparing some wonderful meals that normally I wouldn’t have time to do.
I visited with my husband, cuddled with my cats, Skyped my daughters, stayed up too late, drank too much wine, and enjoyed some great coffee houses. I read some wonderful blog posts, by great writers and attempted some writing as well.
It was a great break and I am grateful to have had a moment to refresh before jumping back in with my middle school students.  I know tomorrow will be challenging, we have a new coworker to train in, a brand new lunch procedure we will be rolling out, lunchtime Zumba activities get underway, and to top it off there’s a full moon!   Jumping back in with both feet!

That’s okay it was a great break, a staycation filled with a little work, a little play and it was my time, my way and I enjoyed it!  I hope you can enjoy some of your own time too.
Be well!  JustLorelei67

What Is Your Dream Job?

I analyze everything!  If you’re telling me a story about your lunch date I will ask what you and they were wearing, what restaurant, where you sat, what you were eating and any other seemingly random question.  None of which will have one iota to do with the fact that you are now in a serious, committed relationship and you are trying to tell me your next move.  But I just love visualizing the “whole picture”.  Being able to put myself in someone else’s shoes is of the utmost importance to me and I like the stage set to partake in it.

Therefore my dream job (drum roll) /\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\  Private Investigator of course!

 

I can imagine working the case, asking the questions and analyzing the data. This would be a most perfect job for me!

This is day four of my blogging challenge.  I don’t think I would have picked this topic to write about,but I want to follow the 30 days as they’ve been liste.  I am inspired to come up with a list of things that I do want to blog about when my challenge is over. And that is pretty exciting!

If you want to share your “dream job” with me leave it in the comments below!
