We were up and at 'em again this morning...five more weeks until my school and one of Peter's schools are finished! Spring break was not so springy, but still a lovely little break. I had to wake the boys up this morning which was fine by me because it gives me hope that they might sleep in this summer, at least occasionally. Even after I woke Ned up this morning, he just sat in bed for a minute and then told me he was still tired and laid back down. I am thankful that I have been able to go to school for the last year, but I wasn't supposed to have to do it at 8 in the morning three days a week, so I'll be very glad when it's over. And then I won't go to school again until after we move (out of the state that is - in a year or so when Ryan gets his next job) - I'm really in for a long break.
Speaking of moving...we did decide that we will move to the ugly house at the end of May when Peter is finished with preschool. I'll have to post some of my ideas about what I plan to do with the space. I spent a large part of Friday online researching products and ideas to help me figure out how to make the space more pleasing to the eye without spending a ton of money. It is going to take some money - I'm going to just think of it as our part in stimulating the economy. We'll also have to buy a washer and dryer, but I figure that is something we will have to do eventually anyway. And over the course of the year, we will still save money, have a small yard to play in and even grow a few things, and be within walking distance of Ryan's work and Peter's school. I also got really excited about being there after seeing Penny's walk pictures - I bet there will be some cool photo ops in that small town. I'm imagining lots of morning walks this summer with camera in hand. I hope the boys cooperate - I might have to pull out the backpack for Ned.
I've been crocheting those little flowers all weekend for a spring project that I'm working out. I even did some at our girl's night. I could have done a lot more if I had stayed up talking with everyone until 4:30 in the morning, but for once in my life, I was the first one asleep at a sleepover. Apparently, my friends have some serious stamina - one of them is even pregnant - go Mandy! Thanks for the fun ladies!
And one more item of business...I don't think I'm going to make my giveaway this month, unless you want another pack of scraps...I've still got plenty of those (and I'm not sure I want to move them all)! I do have a plan set for April though and I should be ready with the giveaway item soon...it's going to be good...I hope you'll like it! Happy Monday everyone! We are surviving it one step at a time...we woke up to cold and snow again this morning.
