I'm home, tired and happy to be back. I did my best to read via my phone while I was gone as I didn't have internet access. I'll post more later.

I'm pretty sure that I won't be going to the conference I had hoped to attend. With bad budgets, I think they are saying no to out of state travel.

This means that I want to go somewhere (WARM) for spring break. I would be available anytime from March 14 through to the 22nd. P has that time off too. I want to go somewhere warm that won't have too many college student spring breakers. Do you have any suggestions? I don't want to spend too much money. I just want to enjoy being in warm weather and water (lake, ocean, indoor pool...don't care) Definition of warm is more than 60 degrees F. I don't care if it's a cruise or just go to warm weather and hang out.

Where have you gone that has been the best experience for you?

 I've really been enjoying my time off. The time has just flew by....So far I've gotten A's dentist appointment done, mine scheduled, my annual exam scheduled. I've got my taxes (mine and Dad's) scheduled. I've got an interview for a perm job and one for a temporary job. I straightened up the bedroom and did a crap load of laundry. I made chix pot pie. I've gotten more paperwork for my Dad's stuff notarized. Returned overdue library book, checked out more library books, cleaned out the frig (gross!) I broke my paper shredder and bought a new one(and shredded a crapload of stuff that was backlogged). I transferred the title for the camper, yikes $300+. I've kinda given up on my broken laptop, it's going to cost over $200 when it's repaired but they're still waiting on the part. It'll get here when it does, in the mean time, I've taken over the desktop that P and I bought together. Normally I get really bad when I'm home alone for too long a time at once. This has been no problem. I'm not sure if it's a good thing or not. I've got plenty more to do tomorrow. P took the day off from work, I'm going to get ready for my retreat starting with dinner on Friday. I've picked up a bunch of books and etc.  I had to reset my phone and lost all my phone numbers (including all my Dad's stuff phone numbers)I've been slowly trying to build those back up. I wish I saved them in paper somewhere. I met with a headhunter for a library job with a law firm, don't know if I want it or not since it's only temporary. 

I was thinking about buying a costco membership but then I figured we'd just eat more than we already do and I'm trying not to do that. I must say that I'm pretty happy that since the begining of the year, I've limited the going out to eat more than I usually do. This makes me happy.

There's slow but sure movement for my bathroom downstairs. When that's close to being done, they'll move upstairs and I'll have to figure out what I'm going to be doing with the upstairs.

10 more weeks until I'm done working (and we leave for Disneyworld).

So...an email came to me today about a department on campus who is looking for "staff or faculty" leaders (which I think I qualify as even though I'm a "fixed term") for the alternative spring break program. They have spots open for Biloxi, MS (hurricane support) or Golden Pond, KY (USDA Forest Service). I'm so very tempted. It would be of minimal cost, get me to a part of the country I've never been before, look good on my review and I think it would be fun. I like the hands on experience like these. The concerns that I have is that I'd be away from my son (I think my sister would watch him) and away from my love... I don't know a whole lot about it other than I would be working with some students to help plan it and probably drive the van down to KY or MS. I think I'm leaning to KY.

This motivates me all the more to get my house clean during this break so I've got the time for spring break.
