I always hated the fact that during college, spring break always came during usually foul Chicago area weather. And now I’m reliving that with my kids who have also inherited this dubious scheduling that probably has more to do with union contracts than a realistic attempt to schedule the break during some truly spring like weather.
So it was with some envy that I spied the many tourist out on Michigan avenue yesterday during what had to be the first nice day of spring. I actually had lunch outside in the park! Apparently, a lot of private schools are having their spring break this week following Easter. There were so many moms with cute, American Girl Doll-like girls out yesterday that the flowers themselves would have been jealous, that is if there were any blooms yet!
Of course, all pleasure must come with some pain… Today it’s snowing!
