good morning girls-we had a freeze last nite-my neighbor covered up everyone of his landscape plants-I didn't cover anything! I had lots of blooming things but I am not one to worry about covering things up-usually it happens every year!

the sun is shining today but still cold-brrr! I really felt bad yesterday when I got home from my job-just wanted to nap and be left alone with a blanket-didn't feel well when working either-not sure what was going on? today is a cook day-will fix a big casserole that will last for days-I am tired of them but not sure what else to cook-will freeze half of it for laster-that seems to work when we get tired of eating it. that gives me time to find something else to try-I am trying to get back on the woe since we are not having a big dinner for Easter-maybe I can behave myself for a few!

what are the plans for Easter for you girls?

Jeanne that is a great idea! Pork butt is what we served at the PARTY last weekend. Easy to do ahead of time and everyone likes it! We served the baked beans/chips and then we went with Slaw and pickles. YOU deserve to get to have fun and NOT just work in the kitchen! Who says it has to be HAM??? Really???

Supposed to get up to 67* today, but the WIND, it is horrible! I don't like super windy days. What fun is that? The hair just blows!

Today T has his therapist appointment. There is no church tonight since this is holy week (we have Wed prayer service during lent). T doesn't work on Wed nights. I think we may actually take the kids to the movies to see Heaven is for Real. Each of us have read the book, so we are anxious to see how the movie plays out. Not sure I believe all of what this kid saw, but it does raise some questions. While T is with the DR I will do some grocery shopping. It is just across the street.

This weekend, we are supposed to head to Springfield on Friday. A dear friend of mine's daughter turns 18 on Wed of next week. She is severly autistic and has always considered us family. For her birthday, she wanted US to come down for a party. It will be just us and them. From us, what she wanted, was a 18 year old birthday dress. Not sure what that is, but I imagine we will have fun shopping for it! LOL We will stay through Saturday evening then drive up to my parents house. Then we will spend Easter Sunday with them.

All this can change if T has a bad time/bad day. I have inquired with him if he wants to go and he said, definitely he does. He had another good night last night, although he worked till 9:30 p.m. so we didn't see a lot of him.

Hoping he is interested in the movie tonight.

Time will tell!

Hope your weekend goes as planned-sounds like fun! I think you need a weekend away to just put some space between what has been going on at home? your last weekend party came me the idea of what I should cook instead of a big easter dinner! I just want to have fun with the kiddos--they have both been sick-hope they are better by the 26th!

I am ready for the spring weather again-I don't like mowing in the cold!

Hello ladies. I have very little planned for the weekend. Since we only have Marcel's family to deal with and his parents can no longer come over to either of our houses because our bathrooms are on the 2nd floor and they can't do stairs.We have decided to go to a restaurant for brunch , but on Saturday. I was hoping to do it on Sunday but my BIL and SIL want to host a brunch for her family on Sunday like usual and don't want to alter their plans. Oh well.

I have the pics of Millie and Ralph and some new pics of Twinkle. I'll put them up tomorrow. I left them on my flash drive at work.

Monica---Have fun at the movie. I hope it is what you expect it to b. I have not read the book. I'll have to look it up to see what it is about.

Jeanne---Great idea for keeping it simple this weekend. I hope all the grand kids are well enough and you get in lots of play.

Twinkle's anxiety medicine is questionable on whether it is working or not. She still wakes up during the night, but the last few nights it has been more around the 3-4 hour marks. So at least that is better then the 1 1/2 hours before.

Today is Ben's 8th birthday. I gave him a small raw soup soup bone for a present. He was impressed. And for dinner I have white cake and whipping cream for him. That is his favorite.

It is still cold here, but it is melting. We still have quite a bit of snow, but it is suppose to be warmer next week, so I'm sure most of it will go then. CAN'T WAIT!

Til tomorrow ladies. Have a great night!

Jeanne - glad DH's menu helped you plan! That is one of our go to's if we want little prep the day of.

Michelle - One year we gave 10 of the books away for Christmas and all of us read it. T and Dennis didn't end up going. T had a session at 4:00 and was not in a good mood after. H and I went. It was exactly like the book, so I am pleased with the movie. GOOD feel GOOD movie! I had popcorn, which blew my DD out of the water! Thrilled you will be seeing less snow soon!

It's FRIDAY -EVE yeah!

sunny and 60s today! I am going outside today! have to pick up sticks before I mow! that will take awhile in these acres! rain coming tomorrow! and it begins! grrr. I am not looking forward to the weeds and mowing this year... I am still burnt out from last year.

looking forward to seeing the pics Michelle-I am glad you are getting a few more hours of sleep-that helps a little maybe? I would never be able to get back to sleep I don't think?

You can still see all the snow out the window in the pic with Marcel. Fingers crossed it goes soon.

Thanks for the pics Michelle-nice to see the group! nice to see Marcel relaxing with Ben and enjoying the new bunch! he looks comfortable! I am glad he is taking it all in stride! I can't believe you have that much snow left-it still looks like its all white outside your windows! no green! at least it is bright!!!

What great pictures Michelle! I wish you had included one of YOU! That snow, it is down right depressing. Hopefully it is all gone soon. Has it snowed more recently? Or are you all done with adding to the piles???

Jeanne - we could use a picture of you too. We have no idea what you look like. That isn't fair, you all know what I look like! TAKE a SELFIE!!! My H does that ALL THE TIME!

Last night was a crazy night. 4:15 dental appointments for H and I. 5:30 pitching lessons for H and then softball practice at 7:00. She also had her end of season volleyball banquest from 6-8. We obviously didn't make it to that. SAD THING, she won MVP for her team! We have the certificate and everything (a friend brought it over). She was so happy!

Fun stuff! T seemed OK last night. They have increased his dosage of meds again. HOpefully we are done now. He is up to 20 mg.

We head out at 4:00 for Springfield today. It is a DD for me, not sure how it will turn out tonight. Probably tossed out the window once we get there till Sunday evening. Monday I am going to hit it strong. We only have 5 weeks from Monday will we head to Jamaica for our trip! I would love to have 5 pounds gone by then! That would still have me higher than I would prefer, but oh well!

a trip to Jamaica sounds lovely! I am sure you will lose those 5 pounds! No problem for you!

I have been trying to be good-it is going fair-I need to bake something-where does the time go? I never seem to have a block of time to stay in the kitchen these days?

WTG Haven for winning MVP for her team--quite the honor--I wish she could have been there too! she is a busy teen!

I had an avatar up before-I just didn't leave it there for too long-it was a pic from a couple of years ago-I don't take a very good pic and that one turned out so I keep it! it was taken before we went to Colton's birthday dinner at the back of our house!

need to get busy-later girls

we did nothing today-our big weekend is next weekend-I worked outside today for awhile--Bill's son stopped by and we had a very quiet weekend-hope everyone had a great Easter!

I actually enjoyed having a quiet holiday-next weekend will be a zoo here it sounds like! I hope the weather is good-they said today we are supposed to have rain-I sure hope not-that would spoil a lot of pretty little dresses and plans.

Happy Easter to you both (a day late).

We had a good weekend. We were made it to Springfield Friday. The girls spent Saturday shopping the boys went to Incredible pizza (which is like Dave and BUsters) for 3 1/2 hours. LOL We then got to my parents house by 8:00 Saturday night. We helped Mom stuff easter eggs for church and then Sunday we did church and such. All went well!

Ok-I am stopping the insanity-hey that could be the next name of our challenge-wasn't there a book or something by that-I think I bought into it! what didn't I try? anyway--I finally got onto the scale---and it stops now--I need you guys to really get on me-seriously-get on my butt about staying on plan and not getting off for nothing-I have played around with my health long enough!

I can't seem to get thru a few days without eating off plan-the food CONTROLS ME! Seriously--can't get it out of my head-how crazy is that? anyway-I need you guys to keep me on the straight and narrow!

need to get busy and keep busy!

I like the STOP THE INSANITY Idea. It was that crazy lady Powers that did that. Was her name Susan? I think her plan was no sugar, that kind of thing. She had that really short spikey white hair??? I think

Girl, text me when you want to faulter. I would happily chat with you!

yep--I even bought the book I think--I did them all!!

let's go the longer term-If I lose a pound a week I could lose ten-sounds like a goal!

Jamaica would be soooo nice before it gets scorching hot too--what is the weather there? is it already hot in 5 weeks time?

I am up for the longer challenge too. I gained about 8 lbs since the beginning of the last challenge. Oh well. No point in crying about it.

Jeanne---I will do what i can to get you back on track. I think I'm a lost cause however.
