What's fun for a nice diabetic teacher to do while on Spring Break? And what would I like to find in MY Easter Basket?

Well -- no candy for me! My Easter Basket needs to have other things in it.
Get me some cool and cute and colorful new socks and roll them up like Easter Eggs. I really like music (no sugar in a CD) so put some music in my basket. Sharpies come in all kinds of colors -- instead of m&m candy in Easter colors, how about some Sharpies? I love tea. That fits in an Easter Basket (but please, no mugs. my students flood me with those. its their favorite gift to give me for some reason). You can look up neat, new recipes on the internet and make little recipe cards to put in the basket. And its a tradition in our family - new jammies at Christmas, new slippers on Easter. Since I'm not supposed to run around barefoot -- foot care, foot care, foot care --- those are always nice.

What fun can I have? I'm not really interested in a lot of trips to a restaurant (too many calories) but I love to cook dinner with you one night so we can giggle over the pots and pans, so promise me you'll be my Sous Chef one night. movies minus all the snacks is cool. If it ever stops snowing (you lied Mr. Groundhog) then some drives and walks would be great and relaxing. Could we go minicamping one night? I'm a poor teacher so I don't like shopping, but I do like museums and a whole UNINTERRUPTED afternoon at the library would be so nice. And naps are always free and sugar free.

What are your favorite Easter treats?

I am on the countdown too. Thursday afternoon can't come quick enough! Hmm...as for my Easter Basket. I do like a sweet or two and I normally get a pair of (bright) socks.

As, for my plans this year for Spring Break. Nothing! Just shred some paperwork, play some Wii Dance , visit with friends & family and maybe look into the "black hole" I call my closet. *LOL* Hope you have a relaxing Spring Break!
