Easter Monday is also the first official day of Spring Break here for teachers. I see it as the last bit of rest before we get back on the train and go full speed ahead before the end of school The last thirty days are quite hectic with testing, IEP writing, end of school programs, etc. For me, I tend to feel a bit anxious during this time of the school year for the mere amount of work that is required in addition to oh yes, we still are teaching!
So today is a day of quiet rest. Other than some obligatory grocery shopping and a much needed car wash (one needs to see out of the windshield to drive), the day was pretty much set with knitting, reading, nappage and playing a little online Scrabble. All in all, a good relaxing day.
