While Mary tempered with a bit of white:
Really, did you expect a team I was captaining to wear anything else?
So as we were planning our Spring Break, we came to the conclusion that weather would be really important. The Homestead Easter Egg hunt when it is 65 and sunny is much nicer than when it is 35 and rainy. Much to Tim’s surprise and delight, I agreed to postpone the actual decision making until the last minute.
Once the forecasts were in, we realized that Roanoke, Virginia was going to be a pretty fine place to be this week. High 70’s every day, sunny and beautiful. And the Staycation was born. We reserved the right to flee town if the weather went bad but for the time being, we were staying home.For the kids’ benefit, we had a couple of changes to our regular schedule. We promised not to make them go to the gym (which I will never understand why they object to it so much – all they have to do is hang out) and they didn’t have to practice piano. The latter may not go over well with their teacher but oh well! Personally, I tried not to spend too much time on the computer (hence the lack of posts this week) and limited my talk radio.
