Spring Break Blues...




Today is the first day of spring break for the kids. Unfortunately it doesn't look like we're going anywhere. *hmmm* Anyway, when I was growing up a long time ago, we didn't go anywhere for spring break.

Of course, where we live most of the families go away for break. Typically someplace warm-we can't or don't most of the time. First of all, Rickie's still on IV meds at home. Secondly, he has to have his IV's every 6 hours and in-between Iv's he has the vest and nebs to do. *sigh*

I could, I suppose, go on a couple of hour trip away from home and then come home and do treatments. But no one wants to do that! I really wish that I could do something with them. Anyone out there have any ideas. Remember I have various ages to deal with. Ali's at college so no need to factor her in. So, ages 17,15,13,11 and 6.

Please be creative-god knows I'm not! Too warn out. Better yet, think of a place I could go! :)

This too shall pass and summer will be here before you know it-and Rickie should be a lot better.

Oh yeah, the picture of me running-it's merely to inspire me to get out and run!!

Take care,

Carey
