March saw us very busy on the weekends – so much so that we only decluttered 16 items this month.
Long weekend #1
On a positive – we took a 4 day trip to the opposite coast to visit our kiddo. One thing we realized is that we are getting too old to take the red-eye flights! Work all day, drive to the airport, fly across the country to have breakfast with the kiddo wore us down! Thursday was a great day though. We visited Arlington National Cemetery – I know, of all the things to do in DC, we visit the cemetery. It is one of our favorite things! The Cherry Blossom Festival was non-existent due to the weather destroying the blossoms.
Friday we attended our daughter’s medical school “Match Day” ceremony. She will be coming back to California for residency!!! You can imagine how excited we are – she “left” us in 2007 to go to college on the east coast and basically hasn’t been back to live. We are so proud of her!
The rest of the weekend was spent celebrating!! We flew home Sunday to go to work Monday morning.
Long Weekend #2
Our second “excursion” this month was the the National Science Teacher Association conference in Los Angeles. This was a Thursday through Sunday event as well. 2 long weekends away from home in one month. We both got a few great ideas we can implement in our classrooms. Always worth it! We are both so tired and ready for a weekend at home, maybe decluttering the garage!
