Well, since I haven't been around in forever, and it is nearly TM time, thought I should stop by.
Spent yesterday working in my garden and envisioning the space with new flowers, stones and gems. While my hands are paying for all my time spent diggin in the dirt, i am content.
How is everyone? Miss me?
Glad to see you, Aeress!
Firefighters are on stand by for floods... it's way too hot (summer temp) way too fast!
DD2 will decorate eggs. We will open all windows and welcome fresh air. I'll make a Spring Inspired Meal for dinner (hoping DH will be home to eat).
My main "ritual" will be making my TMap on Thursday though.
My husband won't be home, and my kids eat...next to nothing. I'm cutting up quesadillas with a bunny cookie cutter, because my kids would starve before they ate asparagus.
Me, too. I am SO ready to move.
And yes, exactly what you said. It does stink and they do send messages like that. His two teachers this year are lots more idgity than his prior ones, and I'm not the only one to notice it I mean-- if you can't handle kids, don't be a teacher, eh?
I got out, I got out! It was harder than I thought, though. The case was going to be a criminal case, in which I might not be able to be fair and impartial, even if my single parenthood had been a deciding factor. I said I didn't think I could do it, and I was in tears when I said it, as it brought up a lot of old personal stuff. They let me go immediately. Who expected that, huh? At any rate, I can't serve for another two years now, so WHEW, that's done and over with.
I can't imagine why people commit crimes more than once. It is SCARY being in there, so intimidating. Just the atmosphere. I wouldn't be a repeat offender just for the scare factor.
Same to you, and all of you, Happy Equinox!
I read about your fire fighter on FB. I have a new respect for those guys after last Monday. I hope it all goes uneventfully for him.
So, for the holiday, we went to the botanical garden.They have this cute spring bingo scavenger hunt, encouraging the kids to look for tulips and buds on trees and stuff. We had fun: saw the first red wing black bird I've seen this year, and a huge hawk. Lots blooming there - I think last year we looked for signs of spring, and we couldn't really find anything yet.
