Spring Break 2013!

Today is the first day of Spring Break for us this year. And we're off until April 8, so yay for a week and a day off! I don't have any travel plans for the week, which will be nice. As much as I love to travel, it's nice to have some time spent at home, too.

I also have nothing big planned for the break. I hope to read some, game some, walk some, shop some, clean some, and eat some. And already have done all of those today (bar the reading - which will be remedied soon enough, and the cleaning - which will be... well, there's always Sunday). I headed off to see the folks for lunch today and we went to Lincoln Square. I had a BLT club and fries. The club was very yummy, the fries were simply OK. Then the folks and I walked to the grocery. (OK, so it wasn't swanky shopping or anything, but it was shopping!)

Tomorrow we're having Easter dinner at Aunt Becky's with the promise of cards before dinner. I'm bringing the relish tray (AKA crudités) and a cheeseball (cream cheese & hot pepper jelly mixed together). I might bring brownies too if I wind up baking some tonight. Heh.

The weather was beautiful today. A few clouds, blue skies, high 40s/low 50s (˚F), so I went for another walk after supper. Tomorrow should be equally lovely, so I hope to walk a bit before we're off to Becky's.

March has been a good month for me and the folks. Last weekend we had a lovely time exploring new businesses in Troy. We visited the new bulk food store in the downtown, then had lunch at Mojos, a new bar (where O'Brian's used to be). After an unsuccessful venture to Kohl's (not a new biz), we finished off at the new cupcake store (Brittney's Cakes) that's run by neighbors of my folks. The cupcakes are quite tasty!

In the last bit o' news of the Treen, I'm still doing WeightWatchers and my weight is slowly going down. Mom's just rejoined WW and when our workplace WW ends, I intend to join mom's WW group. (Might go there next Friday since we won't be meeting Tuesday!)

I hope you all are doing as well as I've been (and if you aren't, *hugs* to you) and may the odds be ever in your favor! (Oh wait, where did that spring from?)
