So we actually have today off from work for Good Friday. Our parent company is based in California and this is a holiday they chose to allow their workers to take time off for. Having been working like crazy lately (never seems to stop, does it), I can’t tell you how excited I am to have this day off . . . and I’m not even going to work on it either! lol And next week is spring break, my girls are out of school all week, I’ve taken a little bit of time off during the week, and I can’t tell you just how excited I am . . . and I’m not even going anywhere!
 
What on earth would I take time off for?

Well, first and foremost, I want to be able to spend some time with my girls while they are home all week–especially since this is my senior’s last spring break. Maybe go see Alice in Wonderland, go out to lunch, we’re going to see a play where one of my co-workers is one of the leads . . .

. . . but also . . .

and this is where it gets weird . . .

I’M EXCITED TO CLEAN MY HOUSE!

I know, crazy right? But it’s been so neglected. Today I start by cleaning Zach’s room . . . the dungeon, if you will. It’s the “down-down” (stairs) of the house and has also become the dumping ground for many a-things. That’s my project this weekend. He’s been gone a year and we haven’t touched it since he left. Kind of that whole “out of sight, out of mind” thing. No one goes down there unless they need something from the storage room. My husband was having a panic attack that we’d never get it done until the day before Zach comes home. lol

All day yesterday I just had this peaceful feeling. A “lightness” of sorts. Excited. Nothing weighing on my shoulders. I haven’t felt that in a very long time.
 
Felt good.

Spring is “around” . . . may not be here at the moment, but I have seen it a day or two.

Everything is feeling fresh and I need my house to match that.

Can’t wait to get organized and clean everything up.

It’s been a long time coming.

And don’t you just love to dwell in the one room that’s clean? Makes a person feel all-so happy, eh?
So, I know I’m not alone. What quirky things make you happy? :)
