Is their your vacation? As an educator, this is vacation for me. One of my greatest joys in choosing education as a career is the blessing to be home with my daughter when she doesn't have school. Snow days and day care weren't concerns I needed to worry about. The only worry on a snow day, what time would the home made cinnamon rolls will be finished and ready to frost. As if these aren't cause enough to celebrate, vacations and summer break are times of memory making and busyness typically.
This Christmas break, we took a break from the busy and slowed it down to an open and bare schedule. A time for ourselves to recharge and reconnect. My Dad teased because an empty calendar usually means I didn't write something down or it didn't get carried over from the calendar on my phone (that my daughter encourages me to keep attempting) to my "old fashioned" calendar in the kitchen. Not this time though. In addition to the open time slots and freedom to sleep in or get up and do something, I have even limited tech time during vacation.
My computer had almost 48 hours of "off" time until Saturday when I logged a couple hours to write my blogs so Sunday could be tech free. I thought I'd miss the Internet time but it has been the latter. It's been nice to disconnect part of the day, so much so, it might develop into the norm.
As our family enjoys family time to recharge and reconnect, how are you spending this Christmas vacation? Traveling or at home? If this isn't a vacation time for you, what is your favorite vacation location or memory? Will you share below?
Have a great day, see you tomorrow for TOP's Tuesday on the blog.
