The SUN is out, the temps will climb to the 60's over the next few days. RAIN is predicted, not snow. There are daffodils and tulips starting to poke their way out of the ground. The daylight stays until 6;30. The kids have GONE OUTSIDE to play. The house is a cheery place. Break has been a great time: movies, sleepovers, family dinners, bowling, birthday celebrations, play dates, giant Lego plans, all boys enjoying their time together. Ryan is even wading through his enormous pile of homework assigned..2 large projects, 3 huge packets. I am in a good mood. Working on trickier projects. Brady has learned to tie his shoes. Mitchell is plowing through his assigned reading and entertaining us with all his food facts. Mom and Dad here for dinner tonight. One car fixed, one car taking a break from being fixed and going to the back yard until we can figure out money, time and whether or not to sell it. Enough groceries in the house to make it through the next 2 weeks. Randy working on newer art projects, schemes. More importantly he was recognized at work for being innovative..and that will get him through another month at least. In the midst of the Easter egg coloring we unearthed the Twin Peaks mug from my incredible trip to Seattle and surrounding areas, with my Sister. So grab a cup and smile...this is as good as it gets. Normalcy, happiness in the family and home, sun in the world around us , and caffeine in a good mug.
