The beginning of my boys’ Spring Break from school should make for a rather
unproductive interesting Follow Through Friday around here. Thanks to all our lovely snow and the time they’ve already had off of school because of it, their Spring Break is really just a Spring Break weekend. I will be keeping my items somewhat easy so we can hopefully, focus on having a little fun rather than the fighting…
Maybe that is just happens during our Spring Break. Just because Spring Break starts tomorrow (or started this afternoon depending on your perspective) doesn’t mean I’m ready for it. I certainly still have an overflowing tap of procrastinated projects. Here are my 3 easy (I hope!) tasks for the day:
Go to the Dollar Tree. It sounds silly but I’ve actually been putting off going to the Dollar Tree all week. I ran out of my Oil of Life Body Wash and have been using my husband’s scent-free hunting soap all week (Please, don’t tell him. It was that or the tween boy’s Axe stuff). I’m hoping to maybe find some cheap outdoor entertainment as well. I really should have done this one today and was just not in the mood to go there although I drove by the store no less than three times.
Settle on some definite Spring Break plans. J was already concerned about not having anything to talk about during their “weekend update” when he returns to school next week so we apparently have to do something special. I have a few ideas and had discussed them with my husband but we need to make our “maybe we could” a bit more concrete. Elizabeth from Autism Mom wrote a post yesterday about getting her son ready for travel (They are going whale watching!) and I could really relate to her trying to balance her husband’s love of spontaneity with her son’s need for very specific details regarding their travel plans.
Clean out the fridge.
I did finally (today) take out our pizza boxes from last Saturday but I know there is quite a bit of food in there that needs to be saved from the trash barrel. There is also probably plenty that needs to be placed in the trash bin as well. A bonus item here would be to start inventory on what I already have on hand to begin preparations for our annual Easter Brunch. Maybe I’ll manage that part 2 of that post this year. No promises though. If you are looking for Easter Brunch ideas, you might want to follow my Easter Brunch Ideas board on Pinterest.
So nothing very exciting or too difficult on my list this time. My great hope for tomorrow is actually that everyone (minus my poor husband who has to work) is still doing this until later in the morning:
What are you planning to do on Follow Through Friday?
