Where did THAT week go? I didn't mean to go so long between updates, I swear.
It's just that, well, my kids were/are on Spring Break this week. And my husband is working 18-hour days (at home). And we have this dog.
'Nuff said? I think so. Spring Break eats my brain.
I had intended to post photos of all the signs of spring in my neighborhood -- the daffodils and redbud trees and Bradford pears and ornamental peaches and whatnot that have been blooming like crazy -- but then I blinked and spring was over before it even started. Today at my house it is full-on summer, sunny and in the mid-80s and all the trees have leaves (except the pecans) and all the flowers have quit blooming (except the dianthus). I am wearing shorts! And flip-flops! And sunscreen! It's crazy up in here!
Since last we spoke I have un-mulched and weeded and planted and re-mulched the front garden beds (actually, the husband did most of the labor on that)(but I helped!)(A LOT), bought and re-potted a massive poo-load of herbs and then stashed them in the berry patch where the dog can't destroy them (I hope), taken my daughter shorts shopping and for a run on the middle school track, taken my son to the dentist and bought him cookies (I know), cooked many a meal and read many a magazine and played approximately 12,487 hours of Plants vs. Zombies, for which I may need a 12-step program. And also I bought Swedish Fish. In bulk. At Sam's Club. Ditto.
Anyhoodles, once these kids are back to school and my kitchen is able to stay clean for more than 4 seconds and my brain has slithered back into my cranium where it belongs, I'll be back. Boy, will I. Just you wait.
