About Time Spring Got Here!

Aside from the hail, that is! This past weekend was wonderful. The sun was shining, the air was sweet with blooming flowers and everyone was happy. The kids were getting along and my sanity stayed intact for once. It was a bit chilly, but a hoodie was almost enough to keep one warm. Life is good.

We FINALLY got flower boxes done up for the wrought iron window boxes on our house. We've had the empty boxes for quite some time and we finally got it done. The plants don't have flowers just yet, but will soon and since our friend who did them forgot to write down what was in them, it's like some sort of surprise party, waiting for them to flower! I'm so excited! And our house will look pretty! As long as I don't kill every last little green thing, that is. I am sadly a plant killer. The only plant that has survived in my house is the beautiful papyrus that was a house-warming gift from our former neighbours and it lives because you HAVE to overwater it. It lives in water. And it just happens to be right by the kitchen sink, where there's water.

The Hamster Boy has been quite a peach lately. And by peach I mean right F**king A**hole. Is it my imagination or is he just downright sophisticated in his backtalk? I am scratching my head. At least he comes back round to Dr. Jekyll once in awhile and demands that I "sit down, Mommy, sit down" - which is code for "I want to fondle your hair". He is growing up so fast now. Sigh. Seems like just yesterday, he was this:

We had to turn our AC on in mid-March. But then the next day we had to turn the heat back on. So I can't figure out whether spring is here or not.

Wasn't Saturday the best! We had lunch outside on the deck and the kids even went in the (unheated yet) pool. This week isn't too promising looking and I hear the weekend is calling for showers. We can only hope for many, many hot days ahead. (we'll all be complaining about the heat in July anyways, right?)

Hi Heather!
It's been a long time since we "spoke!" don't know if you remember me.
I used to blog on littlestfeet but for the life of me I can't remember my username or password...
I think? you were preggo with Hayden last time we were in contact.
Ian is 4 1/2 now, and relapsing. We've been doing the casting again, and he has the ATT coming up at the end of May.
Drop me an email so we can catch up-I want to hear more about what you're doing in Uganda!
