Okay, okay. So I've been a bit neglectful of late. I have good reasons, but I'm going to try to repent, and do a better job. I know it's just so hard on you guys when you can't get your regular fixes of my life.
How was everyone's Easter? Ours was great. We stayed home (for once) and had a nice, quiet holiday. The kids were thrilled with their baskets, (nothing fancy people, I'm not a crafty girl), and they had a blast finding their eggs. We didn't dye any, just had plastic because John and I apparently don't like dying Easter eggs. When the kids get older, if they want to, they can, I'm not saying they can't. But if they don't care...did I mention I'm not crafty? Yeah, not so much. At any rate, the cool thing about them finding eggs was that they went about it in such completely different ways. Jonni was all about finding as many as she could. She didn't care about keeping them even, she was totally willing to share with Erik. She just wanted to find them. Erik, on the other hand, would find one, and sit down right there to find out what was inside. Then he had to figure out how the egg worked. Then he had to figure out how to put the candy back inside, and then take it out again, and put it back, over and over until he had it down. Only when he had gleaned all possible information from that egg would he go find another one. I think he found like three. It was absolutely hilarious to watch Jonni rushing around on her quest around Erik doing his scientific experiments. And John was rushing around with Jonni, while I watched the whole thing. I guess we know who got what from which parent. ;)
Other than Easter, I have nothing else to report. To be honest, I am still ill, and so haven't been doing much. The poor kids are a bit bored, but they entertain themselves by demolishing the house. It is definitely a mark of sickness that I don't even care, and we're having company tonight.
So, until next time my cyber friends,

Well, it's snowing. We got a week of cold but no snow, and then this week has been gorgeous; fifties and sixties everyday! It gave me hope! It made me happy! I loved it! And now it's snowing. Almost two weeks of seeing my grass, and everything was almost dried out! Ah well, as my husband says, it's the middle of March. How long can the snow possibly last?

Spring on the Way?...

So our snow melted last Sunday during a warm, sunny beautiful day. Why am I posting about this? The reason I find this important enough to post is that the snow hasn't come back. We have been able to see our grass for almost one whole week, and there is no snow in the forecast for the weekend. This has not happened since before Christmas. It's not particularly warm, in fact the low tonight is in the single digits, but the lack of white slushy stuff is giving me a burgeoning hope that Spring might, just might, make an appearance soon. Cross your fingers, knock on wood...

General Update, and Random Complaining

Hello all you cyber friends out there! I bet you were wondering if I was ever going to post again! Well let me tell you it's been a rough three weeks here in our little household.
It started with my getting strep, followed very closely by the nastiest flu ever. Then Jonni got strep and a little flu, and Erik then got a little flu as well. John never got sick. John doesn't ever get sick. He's John. The kids got well, but it has been a slow and painful process for the mommy of the family. A strait week of fevers, chills, coughing, congestion, horrible sore strep throat, aches and overarching miserableness was followed by a week of normal sickness, which was followed by this week where I have been as weak as a day old kitten. I am finally starting to feel normal though, hooray! Now all I have to do is get my three-weeks-neglected house in order. Oi!
Here's hoping nobody else gets sick like this, and if you do, you have my most sincere empathy,
The Almighty Liz
