I seriously considered crawling back into bed this morning after getting the kids off to school. I even waited to have coffee so that I could fall right back to sleep. But then I looked at my pigsty of a house, the laundry alone is going to take all morning, and it looks like Easter threw up all over my kitchen, so I realized I couldn't pull it off.
So instead, I read blogs for an hour. : )
I received some fun things in the mail recently, like this from Miss Zippy:
Not sure if you can see the un-eaten waffle on a plate in the background, and crumbs and legos on the table. Told you my kitchen is a pigsty. Anyway, I won the cool water bottle because I have an ugly running shirt, between the grey color and font, it looks circa 1974.
I also received a canvas from Megan at Easy Canvas Prints. I'm really happy with how it came out, I went to their site, and uploaded one of my favorite photos of Luke and Eliza when they were little. My friend James Bass The Photographer took it, and I used it for a Christmas card. The whole process was easy, and took five minutes. They turned the photo into a 16" x 20" color canvas, and it was cool how the image wraps around the edges of the canvas. So far I have it hanging over the fireplace in the family room, which some of you may remember from the Great Television Debate.
Even my mantle is messy, with Littlest Pet Shop toys hanging from the nails that we use to hang Christmas Stockings. And I don't know why that Post-It Note is hanging there.
This is how my kids look now, all cleaned up for Easter Sunday. Although I forgot to buy them dress shoes this year. And Luke doesn't go anywhere without a Lego in his hand.
Not happy with the quality of photos in this post, but you'll be happy to know I picked out my new camera and I'm buying it this afternoon.
I'm going to try and run three miles tomorrow, my foot is feeling much better, so I'm going to take it for a test drive. I'm feeling rather sloth-ish, so I'm taking Frank for a long walk after I post this. He's been a P.I.A since I got back from my sister Meagen's house, he's into everything, I think he's pissed off that we left him for a few days.
Some of you guys asked how my sister Ali is doing, she's much better, I got to spend time with her last week. Thank you for asking : )
Is anyone else looking forward to William & Kate's Royal Wedding on Friday?! I'll admit it, I can't wait, mostly to see what her dress looks like. I have the DVR set to record it, but if I "happen" to wake up at 4 a.m. Friday, I'm going to turn on the television. I got up for Princesses Diana's wedding, so we'll see what happens.
My Mega Giveaway to benefit The Children's Tumor Foundation is coming together nicely, there are some great things in it, I'm hoping to post it next week.
Okay, enough wasting time.
Happy Monday : )
