Spring Break...day 10

aaaaaaand, it's over. Well, I guess I should be glad we even got 10 days, but now it's straight thru till summer break.

The kids are back from Memphis!!! YAY! And smellin like smoke. :< I'm washing everything even if it wasn't worn. Canyon is having a hard time re-adjusting. Sahara just doesn't like that school is tomorrow.

I got the Easter stuff out today and had to trash my village. Moisture got in the bag and in the container and mold was all over everything. I tried to scrub it all away, but couldn't get all the nooks and crannies so I tossed them.

Spring Break...day9

How did you spend Earth Hour?

Reading by candle light is pretty tricky.


I had the whole day to myself....................................................................................

and did absolutely nothing. I did go to Hallmark for b-day cards for April and then missed the post office closing by 5 minutes. (sorry Tobey, will get your gift out on Monday)

Spring Break...day 8

The day started out slow. Then before we knew it, it was 1 o'clock and time for Canyon to go off with Rusty. Sahara and I went to the Bona Dea Trails again but only for a short while. We had to hurry back to pack the kids to go to Memphis for a weekend with dad. We met James in Little Rock and then he laid a bomb on me. Letting the kids continue on was a big mistake, but I will have to live with it. They are due back in Little Rock Sunday afternoon and that might just be their last visit to dads (or Memphis) unless court ordered. Can't share details just yet so please don't ask ( family ) :) We are ok and it will all work out somehow. BIG storm heading our way (real storms, not what I was just talking about).

Mel, you have gotten me addicted to that Farm Town thing. I can't get away from it!!!

Spring Break...day 7

Canyon really needed a hair cut, Sahara was beggin for a haircut, so we all went today and we all got chopped. Sahara's took forever! Found out the guy doing her hair put something in it at the sink and then used irons to 'fix' it. I only had asked for a cut! So hers was also more money then Canyon's and mine put together. But it looks really nice. I have a bit higher then shoulder bob and Canyon just has a boys cut. Then we went out to lunch. And then to see KNOWING. I thought it was pretty good, but very predictable. I knew what was going to happen next the whole way thru. Maybe that's what 'knowing' is all about tho. It kind of mixed religious aspects with science.

Spring Break...day6

Gosh! The days are just flying by! I got a few errands done this morning while Sahara watched Canyon. I brought McD's home for lunch and then Canyon went off with Rusty for play and fun. Sahara and I went and walked for an hour on the Bona Dea Trails. Come to find out, the best part, the suspension bridge, had been taken out and the pond by it was dried up. I hope they replace it. :(
I had a little accident. After cooking the noodles for dinner tonight, I poured to strain the water and did it a bit too fast. The water from the pot hit the bottom of the sink, swirled up the back side and splashed back at me (my stomach actually). I have a 2 inch stripe horizontally over my belly button. It is red and blistery and hurts :( :(

Spring Break...day 5

Shopping in Little Rock was great. Sahara and I used up the rest of our gift cards from (Aunt) Kristy. I got a couple shirts and one for Canyon too. Plus a necklace. Sahara got a couple shirts and lounge pants. We went to Conway next and did some more shopping. I tried on some swimsuits. YIKES! That's not going to happen. We ended up in a down pour in Conway and got to drive home in it. Took Sahara's friend home and came home ourselves. Exhausted!

Spring Break...day 4

It is soooo nice to have a clean vehicle! I cleaned the inside of my truck and it looks and smells so good. This has not been done in about a year. I spent an hour on it and could have spent another hour easy. Also I donated 6 cases of size 5T pull ups to Canyon's old preschool today. I'm sure glad to finally get rid of them and free up some space. I tried to get the mowing done but the blades wont engage. :( Having someone look at it. Canyon spent a few hours with Rusty (his wavier worker) and they went to the park and played and played. He should sleep good tonight. Sahara is having a friend spend the night and we are going to Little Rock tomorrow for shopping and lunch. 70 percent chance of rain so at least this will be all inside. (except the drive there of course)

Spring Break...day 3

Got to sleep in again. Course when you are up to 12 or 1 it's not hard to do. Got some laundry done and the day was so nice we went to the park. While Canyon played, I walked the 'track' 3 times. That is all my body could take. But, I am going to try to go back and do that at least every other day during spring break. Looks like the weather will let me do that every other day too. Rain on the the other days. We also hit Walmart and got Canyon cleats and a glove for baseball. The glove is youth but is a little too big for him. But he has to have a right hand glove as he is left handed and there aren't may choices. I also weed poisoned the weeds in the yard within 100 feet of the house. I need to mow tomorrow tho because lots more rain expected Tuesday. Also, Sahara loved the blond streaks I put in her hair so much we got some more today. I think it will be a when-the-sun-goes-down project.

Spring Break....day 2

A bust. Slept in but when I got up I realised that it had silently rained all night so mowing will have to be put off till next weekend. Dyed my hair (and a bit of Sahara's) with blond frost. Different look for me, but I like it so far. Sahara worked on her science fair project for a few hours and got most the the work and typing done and saved on the computer. So far, I really liked her experiment last year the best with the CSI fingerprinting. Tomorrow, we have got to get out of the house. Hoping the weather will be nice so Canyon can go to the park at least.

Spring Break...day1

We slept in!!! I actually got more than 6 hours sleep (with the help of Nyquil). That's a first in the last 2 weeks. Sahara has been entertaining herself with newly found Weird All Yankovic videos on YouTube. She has be watching them and laughing all morning (now afternoon). I told her she should watch the original video first so she knows what is being made fun of. She likes Amish Paradise, You can have whatever you want, and Found it on eBay (tooo funny!) the best. Canyon is getting ready to spend a few hours with his Waiver, and I have been straightening the house and when Canyon leaves take a load of stuff to MARVA. I have a list of things to get done this week off. Major thing to do; Sahara's science fair project.

I finally got Canyon signed up for the baseball team for special needs kids. They said they were having a good turn out. 45ish kids signed up now and it still is weeks away. :)

Possible snow this weekend.

We will all be sick next week

As Arizona has it's own informal state motto: ~But it's a dry heat~

And I have heard of 1 for Connecticut ~We like our martinis shaken, not stirred~ (I guess they drink a lot of those there???)

Ours, Arkansas' is ~Don't like the weather, stick around, it will change in 15 minutes~

Last Saturday we had snow. Not enough here to stick, but 30 miles away they got a couple inches. Yesterday and today, 8o degrees. It usually takes a good week to 10 days and everyone will have bad colds. The weather will probably be nice, 70ish and sunny for a few days before everyone gets sick and we'll all wonder why is everyone sick when it's so nice out. Then we will remember the cold weather that was out of the blue the week before.

A Field of Angels

I found out that there is going to be a softball team for kids with disabilities right here in Pottsville. It's for all area kids with disabilities but all the games will be played right here. The kids range in age from 4 - 18. Plus each kid will be paired with a volunteer so parents can sit back and enjoy the game. Sahara volunteered to be a volunteer and I'm so glad she did because I was going to sign her up anyway. So far they have 17 kids signed up (I was on the phone with the guy setting it all up for 45 minutes the other night), plus I have been promoting the poop out of it. I hope with my help and from working with the kids in my district, I can get another 15 or so to sign up. I also listed it on several sites for local sports events so maybe that will bring in even more. Best of all it's FREE.

Breakfast anyone?

Apparently Canyon decided to make breakfast for Sahara and I before anyone was up this morning.

'Waffles', he said.




His ingredients:

pancake mix (that'll work)

2 eggs (not necessary, but OK)

and

Corky's BBQ sauce (YUMMY!!)



I'm just glad he didn't get out the waffle maker or turn on anything that gets hot.
