Spring Break Where Did You Go?

How can Spring Break end already? Didn't we just have snow last week?

Our school Spring Break is usually the third week of March. Not this year. It approached faster than a hormonal woman racing for a chocolate cake (yes, from experience, sheesh!)

I went and spent most of the week with my parents. Momma had an amazing couple of days. Was it because she had an appointment with a psychologist for her depression? Was it because her daughters were coming up to spend a week with them? Or was it because Daddy was going to be gone a week? We may never know and you can chose any of them as the answer. I firmly believe it was due to Daddy leaving, but we will let that be our secret.

It was amazing to have more of my Momma back than ever before. And then…wham, bam, thank you ma'am, the feeble, incoherent, pain riddled mother was back for her doctor appointment and chemo treatment. It is hard to see a total switch in personalities. Was it truly pain or was it white coat syndrome? And why did it extend an extra day? Was it because Daddy was coming home?

On Thursday, we tag teamed and I handed off the taking-care-of-mom-baton to my other sister and I boot-scooted home to get ready for the annual St. Patrick's Day Parade. I will not bore you with another round of pictures of the parade. It was the same as last year and the year before that and the year before that. You can read about it and see the pictures here.

No matter who you are, Spring Break comes quick and ends just as quickly. It doesn't matter if you sat at home the whole week, took care of your mom or took a cruise. Time is fleeting and the sands in the hour glass fall rapidly. Make the most of every moment and pray there is vacation days coming up!
