Road trippin'

FINALLY!  A happy post :)  I did get lost in a little negativity last night and wrote a note about how miserable this job is making me.  But...enough of that for now.  Spring break is quickly approaching!  As difficult as this first full year of teaching has felt so far, I should count myself lucky for the amount of time I get (and certainly will relish in this summer) off.

D and I have been throwing around spring break travel ideas for months now.  I mean I've been desperately longing for a vacation since September!  Once we officially close on the house and get a bit of tax refund money, I'm going to have ants in my pants to get out of this town.  Since D still has work obligations, one of the ideas we've thrown out is that of a road trip.

D has a beer event in Virginia at the end of my spring break.  We've contemplated driving up to Philly (I've yet to go while he has visited two times now) then up to NYC then back down to VA to round it out.  As much as I'm dreaming of being back on a plane, this trip sounds like a winner.  Since D has the event, I'm 95% sure this is what we are going to do. 

I've been dreaming of NYC for quite a while now.  That would certainly allow me to mark off a few items on my 101 in 1001 list!  We'd catch a Broadway show and eat at some fabulous restaurants.  I think the hardest part would be leaving feeling like we haven't accomplished enough...since the city is so enormous!  I'd love to take D to see a live show of some sort.

One thing I hadn't thought of is where we would leave our car.  There's no way I would brave NY traffic/parking to see the city.  Taxis!  We should take parking costs into consideration.  Here's to hoping that this works out!  Goodness knows I need a break!

Aaaahh!! I'm jealous of this potential spring break! Nobody knows how long I've been dying to go to NYC. But I will tell you, it's been about 20 years.

I totally hope it works out for you girl!! You deserve a break and would have such a blast.

Come over and throw in your deets on a pair of Minnetonka boots (or shoes - it's winner's choice). Short-term fix!

I can't wait for Spring break either! School is already no fun... I went to NYC over new years and had a fabulous time- we also had parking included in our hotel package, so maybe you could find a hotel like that! (We stayed at the downtown Marriott) good luck with everything and hope it works out! xo
