Spring break is here. No children for a week, then two months until summer. I am so excited. This has been a trying year at school, and I’m ready for it to be over. Spring break always give the teachers the needed rest to persevere through the final two months of school; spring break always seems to signal the end of the year for students. They think their work is done, but we have plenty more to do.
So you might ask what I am doing for spring break, well the above picture is NOT a hint, but a dream. I’d love to find a semi-secluded beach and spend my week reading, soaking up the rays, and drinking coffee in the morning and tropical drinks all day, but kids are always at the beach for spring break and I want as far away from them as possible.
My boyfriend is therefore taking me hiking in the mountains of Alabama. Yes, we do have mountains in Alabama, they just aren’t very tall and they make up the most southern point of the Appalachain Mountains. It’s a three day, two night trip, but most of all, I get to spend that time with my boyfriend. Maybe he will even pamper me a little bit. The local restaurant on the mountain we are staying on serves local wines, muscadine and grape, which I’m looking forward to sampling. I’m really not supposed to drink alcohol with my cluster headaches, but hopefully the new medicines I’ve been prescribed will help. The real tricky part is going to be surviving the side effects of the prednisone dose pack my doctor has me taking. Hopefully, the fresh clean air of the mountains will also help.
