Holy cow Moms and Dads!!! What in the world just happened?

Do any of you feel like me? I feel like I was hit by a Mack truck of kid. I am talking about Spring Break. Whew and that was just a week!

Summer is not that far off, and here we are just trying to recover from last week. I recommend some serious recovery work and you need to do it fast. By recovery work, I mean time at the spa or maybe hitting the links.

I mean it is crucial that you build up your strength and get some pretty substantial me time in before the bell rings and school is out in the middle of June.

Of course you can’t relax if you are worried about the budget, so I did some work for you and found some local spas offering discounts to military and dependents on :
