back to work

Josh and I had a nice visit with my mom and dad. My mom made fried chicken, mashed potatoes and gravy, baked beans and deviled eggs. It was really good. I am glad we got to see them.
We did not do too much for St. Patrick's Day, but today (Sunday) I am doing laundry and getting ready to go back to work for me and school for Josh. It is hard to go back after a nice break, but once we are there it is ok. Karl did mow the lawn, it seems everyone is out doing yard work. The weather is so nice. We are supposed to get storms this week, so the grass, trees and flowers will get some water.
I went ahead and decorated my blog for Easter. It will be here before we know it. I hope you all have a nice week coming up!!! I will visit as soon as I can.

Happy St. Patrick's Day!!

It was so nice catching up with the blogs. This is something I really miss doing. I will definitely do daily blogging in the summer when I have the time. I also have an Easter Break next month, but those are usually busy, so we shall see. I just enjoy "really reading" about what is going on instead of just a status update at facebook. It is hard for me to piece together what is going on with everyone that way.
The weather here is gorgeous, in the 70's and 80's, it has been a perfect Spring Break,but my allergies are driving me crazy too. I will take it though. I love warm weather.
Today Josh and I are off to visit my parents. My dad fell a couple of months ago and he is in physical therapy, doing ok, but still hurting a bit. My mom is doing much better after her over medicated issue...I think there is a post about that, so I am not going to repeat. Josh is doing good. He is sitting here by me reading a book. He has been out a lot with the dogs over the break. Karl is working and that is always a good thing. I pray he stays working. It hurt us last year, he was off several months.
Well, tomorrow is St. Patrick's Day!! I hope you all have a great one. Happy St Patrick's Day!! I am going to visit blogs again before I head back to work, but not sure if I will make another post or not. Have a nice weekend.

The Lorax and other things...

Today was a busy day. Josh and I met with a few of my co-workers and we saw The Lorax in 3D. I have to say, I was a little worried because this is my favorite Dr. Seuss book and I didn't want it messed up. I knew they had added some things that were not in the book, but I loved the movie. It was funny, we went in and we are behind a wall that leads into the theater...Natalie says, well we have to pick where we are going to sit. Cyndi and I both thought there was no one there and we walk in and there is like 4 rows of little kids with their 3D glasses on. I wish I had a picture. They were so cute. Then after the movie we turn around and they are dancing. Kids are great. It was a fun time.
Then I worked on cleaning the house a little because I was sick all weekend and I am behind on getting things done and then I went to Petco to get dogfood and treats for the dogs and to Kohl's to look at clothes this afternoon. I got some new shorts and a new t-shirt.
I have several things I need to do still over Spring Break. I will try to visit blogs tomorrow or the next day. Have a great week. It was 82 degrees today and will be near the same the rest of the week.

I wish I could say I have been busy and that is why I haven't posted, but I haven't been. I have been enjoying not having to go to college classes anymore. I am still working on a second certification though, so I have been studying for that test. I take it this weekend. We also start Spring Break next week. I am so ready. We had almost every single student out at different times last week with different sicknesses and by the time it was all over all of the staff was out too. I stayed home Friday, but I was lucky and did not get as sick as everyone else. We had strep throat, flu, bronchitis, fifths disease and some other things going around. I, needless to say an taking Aireborne. So, we need some time off for the kids to get better and rest. They are back this week and seem ok.
Josh had a band competition over the weekend. The band got a 2, but he got a 1 on his clarinet solo. I am so proud of him. He acted like it was no big deal.
Karl is working and has been pretty steady for a while now. It is all well here.
I do not think I posted anything here at my blog, but I went to the dermatologist and had some things removed, but nothing serious and that is over. It was quite an experience and if you read my postings on facebook you know what I mean. I really meant to post about it here so I could remember it.
It is hard to believe it is March. The tornadoes hit Branson, but they are getting it cleaned up. I am concerned about what Spring weather is going to be like.
Well, I better go. I will try to make visits over Spring Break next week. I am looking forward to it.
