Ahhhhhhhh, Spring Break!

March 15th, 2007 at 04:25 pm

Today was my last day of work for over a week. I have tomorrow and ALL of next week off for Spring Break! Unfortunetly, I don't get PAID to be off! Oh well, I knew that this was part of the deal when I took the job. The kiddos will be off, and so will mama!Smile

I wish I could report all kinds of frugal money saving things that I did today...but, I can'tFrown I did take my lunch and drank water for lunch but, I picked up pizza for supper. I've uped my budget this week for spring break, so it didn't hurt it at all. DD and I have had a very hard week at school this week. Not to go into great detail, but because of something that happened to her at school, I reported it and her teacher got fired for it! I hated for that to happen and DD is really upset and afraid everyone will find out that she's the one who "told" on her teacher. Anyway, we both needed a little "pick me up" after all of the stress this week and we're NOT going over budget so we had pizza tonight!Smile

Tomorrow we'll head to the store and buy paint to paint in both DD's rooms over Spring Break. Also, we've resevred a space at a campground, so if the weather holds up, next week we'll have our first camping trip! Of course, everybody else we know is going on a "real" spring break trip...on a cruise, to New York City, Florida, Vegas. We can't afford those places, but we're REALLY looking forward to going camping! It's fun and it's in our price range!

    If the teacher got fired, then it must have been pretty serious! It was a good thing your daughter spoke up.

    You should definately be proud of her for speaking up! That takes courage. You both deserved a treat tonight. Enjoy the pizza!

    Sounds like Spring break came at just the right time for you and your DD. Enjoy it!

    I find it much harder to stay on budget during Holidays like Spring Break. There is something about not having to go into work that makes me want to spend money.

    If it was serious enough for them to fire the teacher, than it was probably serious enough that the why won't get bandied around the school.
