It's been a week of little blogging. I just wanted you to know that I've been busy with Very Important and Essential Things. Such as:
Sick Kid. Bear spent Saturday through Wednesday looking like a very pale little lump under a blanket on the couch. I did much pouring of ginger ale and fetching of Jell-O. She nibbled, sipped, dozed, and watched TV.
Massive School Project. Bug is doing a project on Italy for her Stretch Reading class. She did the lion's share of the work, although I did assist in typing her report for her. I also volunteered to do some of the gathering-of-photos-for-the-display-board work because I suspected (correctly, as it turns out) that when you do a Google Image Search for "Italian women" and "Italian men" that what you get is porn.
TWO teacher in-service days this week, meaning four-day weekend for the kiddos.
PMS and a bowl of Cadbury mini eggs that were not just going to eat themselves.
Gorgeous spring-like weather that has had me doing things like exultantly dragging out the patio furniture, sweeping the porch, gathering rocks for my pond project, and sketching this year's garden plans.
Also there was this tree that's been gradually encroaching on my front window for the last nine years. By Monday I'd decided that it's time had come. I wrangled Bug into helping, grabbed the nippers and the tree saw, and we took that sucker down. (Except for the stump, which is large and unwieldy and going to require a chainsaw. WHICH, I might add, my husband continues to refuse to buy for me. Something about hadn't I learned my lesson from the whole Frankenfinger debacle...?)
What about you? What have you been up to?
