Spring Break is coming. With that thought in mind (and rain outside instead of snow) I figured wrongly that today would be appropriate for a knee-length springy skirt. Oops. Still cold. I always forget that spring break in Iowa doesn't feel like spring.
I am starting to feel the doom of real life coming upon me. Not that I am dreading working and making money. The doom is that I can no longer have whole summers off to live in Honduras or travel Asia. This is sad, esp as I am finally going to have more financial room to do such things. Thus, I feel I really need to take advantage of the breaks I have.
I was hoping to do something fun for Spring Break. The problem: boards. This will make any spring break plans a little less than ideal. There are some great cruises right now, some for only $199 for 7 days in the Caribbean. Wow. What could be more perfect--Sailing in the sun, eating great food, relaxing on ship. Unfortunately, again, boards and no opportunity for a long trip.
We decided to visit Abe's sister in DC. We talk about going since I have never been. Finally decided to just go...a day later, flight prices were up again. So bummer.
So, looks like we will be here. Good for board prep I guess if necessary. My sister and her husband may come out. I am excited but feel the pressure. I love Iowa and always encourage people to come visit. However, once here I fail to find nice things to do, at least during the cold and rainy spring break season.
