I'm not sure what's going on outside...the sky has turned blue and there is a really bright ray of light out???? Could it be the sun? I really can't remember the last time I saw the sun...sometime last week I think. It's been SO nasty here lately! Cold and dreary!! I'm ready for the trees to bloom (other than the ones that have already bloomed) and ready to plant the garden. Last night I cleaned up some of the house and made up my Easter apothecary jars. They look pretty cute, at least I think so. I got some eggs & stuffing at Hobby Lobby and went to town. Kody made dinner again...he grilled chicken and made a sweet/spicy rub to put on it. He also grilled green beans and they were heavenly! I made dinner the night before, Greek Turkey Meatballs, but that was the first time I had cooked in no telling how long. We started our homework on Week 3 of FPU...let me say, this was not easy. It was a complete cash flow budget taking your money and paying it to a category until all money was spent. It wouldn't have been that bad if my 5-year old kid, oh wait I mean husband wouldn't have asked 1000000 questions. He questioned everything..."What if I'm working in the yard and my shovel breaks and I need one right then and you have the money envelopes or we don't have a category for broken shovels?" ETC, ETC, ETC. I finally told him to shut up and we'd figure it out as we went. I'm hoping any of you who have taken this class can ease his mind and mine too. Ashley Pollock??? ;) Afterwards he ran his 3 miles and I played on the computer and watched tv. He makes me feel lazy when he runs at night, but I get my workouts in during the day. I was sleepy yesterday and wasn't wanting to do mine, but was so glad after I did. I had energy the rest of the day! My SIL, Erica, is in the hospital right now. They checked in at 5 this morning and the doctor started Pitocin. Teresa emailed and said labor has started but isn't regular yet. Hopefully it will work and she won't be sent home. Erica said he could be born any day, just not April 1st...everyone would always think he's joking when he says it's his birthday...I figure he'll be born shortly after midnight on April 1st. Drew was born on July 4th, the one day she didn't want. :) We're anxiously awaiting updates! I can't wait to see pictures...it'll probably be next weekend before we get to see him though. I have a Tourism Board Retreat today at a cafe in town. It will make for a long day, but oh well. Yesterday & tomorrow are the only full days I've been at work this week! :) Happy Thursday!
