After a rough week of being sick and then dealing with the devil more than usual during a shortened work week, the weekend loomed like a colorful piñata.
The potential was palpable, but I would have some convincing to do.
It doesn’t seem that long ago that we used to pack the kids up on a whim and drive to Mexico for spring break.
The first time we did it was after a particularly rough quarter at college. I wasn’t completely convinced I was doing the right thing, and the stress was eating away at me.
I discovered we had $1,000 leftover from student aid that could be used for living expenses , and at that point in time, I needed to do some living.
