I have got to get this child an plastic smock, because look what she has done to this shirt. I hope it comes clean in the laundry. Anyways, I gave in last night. I wanted to wait until tonight to color some eggs, but Miss Rebecca had her own plans. So, I fixed up the cups, boiled the eggs, and she dyed them. it's the first time she has ever done it by herself, and she thought it was the greatest thing. She kept asking, Am I doing a good job? She did a great job, except for the fact she also dye'd her shirt as you can see. Good thing I only paid 1.99 for it, huh? LOL
Well. today Rebecca is going out with her sister, Dan, Marissa and Daniel and riding the train. The ride will be for 1 hour, and guess who's gonna be on the train greeting all the kids, the Easter Bunny. I'm gonna let Emma use my digital camera and take pics. Tomorrow around 11:am, Rebecca is going to her sister's house for an easter egg hunt. Then she will come home and wait for dinner to be served. The menu tomorrow is: Baked glazed spiral ham w/ pineapple slices, cherries and baked apple slices, homemade baked macaronni and cheese, home made stewed tomatoes, greenbeans, baked beans with onion and crispy bacon, buttered baby carrots, deviled eggs, dinner rolls, and for dessert there is easter cookies, coconut custard pie and a sugar free raspberry coffee cake. And no I didn't make the desserts, I bought them, lol. Joes Mom is a diabetic so I had to find her a nice dessert. I will have some of the sugar free dessert with her.
Tonight after Rebecca is asleep I will send Jim out to the van to get the bags so I can fix her up a basket of treats, and toys and stuffed animal. I got her alot more toys then candy.
Well, Jim was upset this morning. He went out to the van because he wanted to go to walmart and get my refills for the printer and he came back in cussing up a storm. Someone hit our van in the front corner, drivers side and busted up the bumper. Left no note or anything, the jerks. See that's another reason I hate this city. You have to park on the street and take a chance of having your vehicledestroyed. I am hoping to find a house soon with a driveway, cause this apartment and this city are really getting on my last nerve. I'm going to contact my old landlord again in New Jersey and see if he has anything available. I'm having no luck finding something in Pa. I guess I am being picky, but I wanna make sure it's nice, safe, schools are good, has 3 bedrooms, a driveway, a big yard, a dishwasher, and a washer and dryer hookup. I plan on living there a very long time, so I want it to have what I need and want. I could have a place rent free right now if I wanted it. But it's over top Jims place he works at and needs plumbing and electrical work, and alot of other work I suppose. It's nothing we can't do ourselves, but it involves alot of work and time to do. Jim's great at plumbing and electrical work and sheet rocking. I can do the spackling, sanding and painting. I can even do ceramic tiling and floor tiling. But the neighborhood isn't that great, and just across the street from his shop a man was shot and killed waiting for a bus by a drive by shooting. There's no yard at all to take Rebecca outside to play, and I would still have to climb steps, and that is a hard task for me anymore. Maybe I'll win the lottery and can have a house built to my specific needs huh, yea right I won't hold my breath on that one.
Well, not much else to write about right now. Gonna call my sister Lucy later today and see how she is doing. A few of you left comments that I should send in her story to Extreme Makeover. If she had owned her home believe me I would of done just that. But Lucy rented the house that caught on fire, and didn't have renter's insurance. She was struggling as it was to keep the bills she had paid, and couldn't afford an added expense. When you have 2 teenage kids saying, I need this and I need that, there is no extra money.
Ok, I will go now. I hope your all enjoying your weekend so far and have a wonderful easter.
LOVE TO ALL............................
