Hi, Ginny! A couple of weeks ago, a reader contacted me to let me know she had been looking online for February vacation week activities. She said she came across my post...from last year...and had started to call and make plans when she realized it was not from this February. I told her I would be writing an new post of activities for the 2013 Feb vacation week. I hope readers continue to find it helpful to have resources gathered in one place! That's what I try to do whether it's about vacation activities or real estate!

Hi, Nina...great consumer information.

Our kids will be back in school this Monday after a week off. I did sleep in at least one day this week, but the office needed me, too. We are a family orientated office, so I managed to get some time off to enjoy with my family. I took all of Monday off. My daughter will soon be 16. We are training her to work as an office assistant and she was there to help out this week when we came up short handed. It's great experience for her.

Hi, Debbie...congratulations on getting to sleep in...even if for one day only!! lol I love that your daughter is starting to help out in your office. I've been thinking about the day when I can get one of my kids involved more actively, too.

Lots of activities to do for spring vacation.  It seems to be coming earlier every year.
