Stan and Hunter65 - I am also now on spring break vacation for a week. This time it will be a "stay cation" at home with the kids. Unfortunately, just got 2' of fresh snow this last week, so not a lot going on. I do have a 3 day eventing clinic I'm going to over Easter weekend, which is fortunately indoors. I also have a rather long "honey do" list for the week with digging my horse trailer out of a 3' snow bank is the top item.
Stan, I am truly envus of your weather... Maybe you can post a picture of grass so I can remember what it looks like?
CritterSitter and Cacowgirl - employment issues are tough. We just received a provincial budget that means all funding for my current position has been cut, so I am officially declared surplus. Fortunately, I have tenure, so I will have a job, but my new position could mean driving an hour to work every day. With 6 months of winter and crappy roads, this isn't something I'm thrilled about. We all have to have faith that things will work out well for everyone.
My daughter is graduating this year (how did I get that old?), so planning is underway for Safe Grad. I don't know if this type of event happens in other places, but basically the kids are all bussed out to an undisclosed location along with food and drink to party their butts off all night long. As a graduate, I thought this was an awesome event. As a parent, I'm starting to freak out about it. The thought of my little girl wallowing about with a bunch of drunk teenagers in some farmers field just doesn't make me feel warm and fuzzy. Part of me wants to volunteer so I can keep an eye on things, but part of me says there is no way I can stay awake all night. Thoughts?
