Good Morning everyone. It's been a while since I made a real entry, so I thought I'd better make one. I hope everyone has been doing well. I also hope all of you who got all that nasty snow and ice are getting better weather now. I will be so happy when spring arrives. I'm totally over this winter weather.
Well, yesterday ended with the kids going on Spring Break for the next 9 days. WOOOOOHOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!! I need a break, I am exhausted. We sent the kids home with a quart size bag full of candy (sugar) so they have lots of energy over the weekend for their parents, heehee. Hey, it's our way of paying them back when they send their kid out the door with a big donut and a bottle of Mountain Dew. Then they get in the class and have cereal full of sugar for breakfast. Talk about some hyper kids, whew. As I was leaving the class at the end of the day, Phylis (the teacher) handed me an envelope and said have a fun restful break and gave me a hug. I put the envelope in my purse and actually forgot about it for a bit. I took Marissa to school with Rebecca and I yesterday. She had so much fun, and did an awesome job with her school work. Marissa also had a bag of candy to take home, and I made one up for my lil Daniel also, heehee. I kept Marissa aka Typhoon Marissa overnight, so I was sure she would be ready in the morning to go. Well these 2 girls were so active. They literally trashed my livingroom and bedroom. I had them clean it up, but they didn't do it to my liking, so this weekend will be spent cleaning. I put the girls to bed at 8:30pm, well almost 11:pm and they are still awake. Arguing over cover's stuffed animals. Jim was getting so mad he was ready to take Marissa home. So I got off computer and let him get on it, I got Marissa and put her on couch with pillow and her blanket and stuffed animal and I sat on other end of couch. Well within 2 minutes they were both sound asleep. Finally some peace and quiet.
I bought Rebecca a cute white shirt with navy blue around the collar to wear with navy blue pants to school. I told her no hand painting for her while in that shirt. What did she do, hand painted. The shirt was bleached 3 times, and I even clorox gel penned it, and still the paint won't come out. So there was 8.99 spent for nothing. I was so mad.
Those blueberry pancake puffs are fabulous. Rebecca loved them. Jim said to save his, he's out replacing the brakes, bearings and drums on the front of our van. He said there'stoo much play in the tires, and it's better to take care of it now rather then later when it get's worse. It's nice being married to my own personal auto mechanic, saves me lots of money on labor, lol.
