The Simple Womans Day Book

Oustside My Window:

It is chili and windy. What happened to spring, it's like it doesn't even exist here?
I can deal with the cooler temps, it's the wind that is driving me crazy.

I am hearing:

I'm hearing Bossyboy singing the Sponge Bob theme song. I love that kid..he cracks me up.
I am thinking:
I've got a lot to do this week to prepare for Easter and Birthday celebration 2. I'm also thinking that I'm going to have to hide the basket full of eggs/candy from the Easter hunt. Have I mentioned that when Bossy Boy was 2 he ate every single piece of candy in all 3 Easter baskets? There wasn't a lot but more than enough for a 2 yr old. Since the hunt on Saturday, he asks if he can open every single egg and "look" at the candy. This doesn't last long until he's finally begging for just one piece.

I am thankful for:
Warm sweats and cozy socks..though I'd be more thankful for a nice spring day with no wind..please?

I am hoping: To get all of our taxes done and pray we don't owe...to much.


From The Kitchen;
This week is going to be pretty simple. The hubs is going out of town again.
Monday: Pizza- I had leftover supplies from the slumber party, might as well put it to use.
Tuesday: Hamburger helper
Wednesday: Chicken Nuggets for the boys and Chicken Fajita Soup for me.
Thursday: Grocery day..
Friday: I'm making chicken scallopine My MIL is coming down and this just looks like something you would fix for company.
I'm really debating if I want to make yet another ham for Easter dinner. I'd rather do something different but nothing to fancy or crazy or complicated.

I am reading: A Prayer For Owen Meany- This one is going on my top ten. I love the characters, love the story, love the humor. I haven't LOLed reading a book in a long time. I had no idea what to expect with this book. I love grabbing a book that I've only heard good things about but never read the summary and then end up loving it. That's been happening a lot here lately.
The Red Tent is patiently waiting for me at the library, so I'll dive into it soon.


I am creating: A big mess of clipping coupons. I'm really going to try and play the shop and coupon around game to see if it really makes a difference.


Around the house: I've got to put this house back in order again after the weekend and prepare for my parents and MIL to come down this weekend.


One of my favorite things: I did up my toes and nails last night. I just love that nifty Nic Clix nail polish. I'm in dire need to get some more with a different color.


A few plans for the rest of the week: Library tomorrow-we've slacked on the story time thing. Take the taxes in and hold my breath. Grocery shopping. The boys are off school on Friday, when I was working I would take off since the daycare and school would be closed. It was our tradition to dye our eggs this day. That's the plan- minus the taking off work part, don't have to do that. :)


A Picture Thought:
This is my view from the couch every morning. I wish I could some how get a pic when all 3 of us are huddled in a big ball on the couch.

Sounds like you are going to have a nice Easter. My parents are coming up from Austin and my Mom and I have a tradition of making a "Spring like" cake. I still need to find my idea for this year. Good luck hiding that candy! ; )

That sounds like fun! Looks like we are going to be able to make it to birthday bash #2. The boys are pumped! I may regret that I even told them. Still the 18th?
