Thankfulness Day 18- Vacations

Today I am thankful for vacations.  While I enjoy my work, I really enjoy getting away and spending time having fun with my family. 

As a teacher I am afforded more vacation time than the average worker and for that I am really grateful. In addition to the normal week long Thanksgiving break, two week Christmas break and week long Spring Breaks I am especially thankful that the county I work in has a week off in September for fall break and a week off in February for winter break. These breaks help to recharge me and my kids. Most often we do not get to go on an extravagant vacation, but when we do we make the most out of the trip.

My favorite vacation is cruising. I like to cruise because once we board the ship our vacation is virtually worry free. I also like to cruise because we can go to places we have never been before, see things we have never seen before and learn a few things in the process.

Next week is a vacation week for me. While I will not be taking a trip anywhere I plan to enjoy some time not working and relaxing with my husband and kids.

What are you thankful for today?
