This week is spring break hereabouts. It actually started last Friday for the schools in our area, because the teachers had a "professional development day."
Not having kids, you would think spring break would be a non-event for me & dh. Not exactly. When we were both working, spring break was the week when we had to cover for the parents who weren't in the office. There were larger-than-usual crowds in the underground PATH that connects the downtown office towers, blessedly emptier-and-quieter-than-usual commuter trains in the morning, and more crowded and noisy trains going home at night. Our favourite restaurants were more crowded on the weekends, too.
Now that we are both not working -- and desperate to get out of the house at the end of a loooonnnngggg winter, lol -- we're trying to figure out where we can go and what we can do this week without running into hordes of parents & kids. It's not easy. Monday afternoons at the local mall are normally deader than the proverbial doornail; this afternoon, the crowds were comparable to a pre-Christmas Saturday.
Any ideas for us??
