Spring has sprung here in the South and I am going to float around in the pool and read my new Lee Child novel. Love the Jack Reacher character! We are picnicking for lunch, and then I may plant a few flowers late this afternoon if I am not too tired from reading. This is my last day of spring break and I am not doing anything stressful...

DD: I'm bored and want to play Me: What about me? I can play. DD: No thanks, I mean a real person.

Today's plan - get the taxes done (DH does them), and if little boy will let me, work on the baby shower gifts I have half-made on my table.

Not very ambitious, but I got most of the chores done yesterday.

I am off to CVS and Walgreens in a few to scoop up the bargains, then home to "help" dh jump start one of our cars & follow him to the mechanic. I need to wash some towels, and I have new library books to read, so I will have a quiet afternoon. We have so much stuff in our refrigerator that I told the family "leftovers tonight!", then I work at 7pm. An easy day.

A BOOK?! The POOL?!
That is totally not fair. I am looking out my window at rain, rain, and more rain.

Well, DH is taking DD to the model train show nearby so I'm hoping they are gone when the baby naps and I am going to watch a movie. I haven't watched a movie in something like 7 months.
I'm thinking New Moon or some romantic comedy. No substance at all for me today.

It is a beautiful day here, supposed to get in the high 60's, the snow is melting, and I am stuck inside. DH is taking the older two swimming and to the park. The baby (who is currently nursing to sleep) and I will clean the house, do laundry, get everything ready for school and baby sitters tomorrow, finish lining out my day tomorrow. I have a staff meeting first thing and then am conducting 5 interviews for a new hire, blah. The car needs to be cleaned, extra carseats cleaned out and ready to install in sitter's car in the morning. I have to the grocery store and drop off all the recycle. And *if* I have enough time I need to do my 20 minute Shred DVD and fit in some study time for my IBCLC exam. Once the rest of the fam gets back, we will cook dinner and take a walk before doing the whole bath and bed thing x3.

There is no way to happiness, happiness is the way.

Laundry mostly. Just bumming around the house playing games and getting the laundry caught up.

Dh's playing in a golf tournament so he'll be gone all day.

Lunch and grocery shopping with hubby in a little bit. Then I need to get some laundry done, bake some bread and plan out my garden before I start buying supplies.

Blueberry. It was built up to be this great place for pie with a million choices but they only had two flavors and the slices were small for the price.

I should have made one myself!

It's 4 a.m. here and I've been working for an hour already.

I am getting my teeth cleaned at 8:30. I hate getting my teeth cleaned. Then I will be across the street from my favourite fair-trade coffee shop, only I won't be able to have any coffee because I'll have had a fluoride treatment and not be able to have anything to eat or drink for an hour. Fluoride...not even sure it's a good thing, but I obey my hygienist. Maybe not today.

Here in Nova Scotia, we're having an early spring. Usually we don't really get spring much at all. But swimming in a POOL? I'd say we're about, oh, at least two months away from that.

Leaving for a Midwife appointment in about 30 minutes. 39 weeks today. Then afterwords we're going to have Papa Johns pizza, haven't had that in about 2 years. We just got done eating home-made lasagna, I think it was my best one yet.
