Random thoughts

{photo by: Bryce}

-Happy that it is Friday, Sad that both kids have nasty colds.

-Looking forward to Easter...hearing a great message, spending time with family, and eating lots of yummy food.

-Exhausted by temper tantrums, food strikes, meltdowns, selective hearing, whining, nap strikes, the word "no", dirty diapers, fighting, and children's shows.

-Wishing I could simplify certain things in my life, but discouraged by the amount of work it would take.

-Sore from Jillian yesterday, but happy that I actually did it.

-Wanting another cup of coffee, but too lazy to make it.

-Feeling bad about being so nasty to my kids the last few days and praying for lots and lots of patience.

-Feeling a little ba-humbug about not getting the kids Easter Baskets, but not sure I want them to get caught up in the hype of bunny/chick version of Easter.  (yes, I know I'm being a little dramatic since they are 3 and 18 months)  We'll see...I may cave.

-Am soooooooooo ready for the REAL spring to get here, not this FAKE tease spring where it's 85 one day, then snowing the next.

-ready to buy these that I saw blogged about here this morning.  (LOVE her PL ideas!)

I too am ready for the real spring. Although, the 85 degree day was too much for me (ugh, I was so HOT!!), I am over the snow in April and the freezing, rainy weather we've been having. I need sunshine!!
Hey, we've decided to get the kids "Easter baskets" but we actually give them to them AFTER Easter, so they still concentrate on the REAL reason for celebrating - not the chocolate bunnies and fun prizes. Just a thought!
FYI - I hear it's supposed to be almost 60 on Sunday!!

I, too, am SO ready for Spring. It makes me so testy - err!

Totally understand your Easter basket dilemma. I just caved today, as well. Decided that we're hiding them a basket from mommy and daddy, not the Easter bunny. Good luck with your decision!

Wishing you and your family a blessed Easter! :)

And, thanks for reminding me that I must go to Jillian yet today ...

I have been making myself workout and Jillian has been kicking my butt with her 30 day shred! I hear you on the patience thing! I need them too! I hope Spring comes soon for some sanity! Have a great Easter and BTW, the Easter Bunny is overrated. We don't make a big deal out of him and the boys don't seem to mind a bit. :)
