Spring Break Plans?

What are your college students doing for Spring Break this year?  Travel, beach vacations, volunteering, vegging out, working?

DD will be home this weekend to start her break.  She's stopping on the way home to visit some friends for a couple of days.  When she gets home, she will be 'on call' for her fast food job.  I'm trying to get her to bring home some of her stuff, too.  I'm pretty sure a beach day is in the works too, if the weather warms back up.

Janet, for one, I'm glad that's it's only the weekend.  Two, I'm hoping that this becomes a "been there, done that, got the T-shirt" experience and the allure of throngs of partiers might not be such a pull for them.  Three, we do have a couple of connections in the area in case things go haywire.  There's already been one death there--yesterday, I think.  But I hear they do have a really awesome nightclub there, that would be worth seeing, even at my advanced age, LOL!

LOL, your son is leaving just as the weather is warming up down here!

DS23 went to Panama City with some of his friends his senior year, 2011, and they had a good time, of course. I was glad to hear him call it "trashy", though--I think he knows he's beyond that stuff now. Last Fri & Sat he and his gf drove to Sarasota where they have a couple of friends; they'll start the drive back to MI tomorrow.

DD asked us a couple of days ago if she and a group of people from school--the number keeps growing--including her boyfriend, none of whom we know, can go to Panama City Beach for the weekend.  They'll pick her up tomorrow night and they will drop her off Sunday.  Then she'll pack up and drive back to school.  Hopefully BF will ride with her, maybe they'll caravan back.  DH was floored and automatically wanted to say no.  I told him, that nothing would be going on in PCB that isn't already happening away at school, including the beach.  Plus, since Spring Break fun lasts nearly all month long here in Florida, there's nothing to say that she wouldn't go on her own once she got back to school.  Plus her school is in a Spring Break area, too.  I'm happy that she's open and honest with us.  I trust her and her judgement, but assured her that if she needed, we could pick her up.  Here's hoping for good, clean and safe fun.

DS comes home on Friday.  He has doctor appointments three days of his week off.  We're planning on going to an Irish music concert one night.  I expect he'll be studying, reading, relaxing, and cuddling our girl-dog for the rest of the time. :)

It’s definitely the most-financially rewarding I've ever done. It sounds unbelievable but you won’t forgive yourself if you don't check it out. Make money with Google. Last Saturday I bought a great new Fiat Panda since I been making $9400 this last 4 weeks and-over, 10k this past month. I follow this great link,,

Jason's spring break is next week, too. He'll probably come home for a couple days, visit his girlfriend for a couple days, maybe stay up there and hang with his school friends that are still around for a couple days - no trips or anything.

DD23 will hopefully be sitting back doing nothing.  She's in a Master's degree program and presents all of her research before the committee on Friday.  If they don't ask for any revisions she is done, done done!  Graduation is June 13th.  She's also a first year teacher, so between work, mandatory new teacher training and college work she is stretched thin.  Not sure what DD20 is doing.  She has talked about a road trip to San Diego to see a friend and a trip to Yosemite, but not sure if either of those will pan out.

Vegging and working as far as I know - we're going on vacation with a bunch of dh's family in June so my guess is he'll just work and try to get gas and fun money, sleep, eat...possibly look for/apply for summer jobs trying to find something in his career path.
