spring break

Spring is here and I could not be more excited. (Even if it’s still raining.)

And we had the busiest week ever:

1. We had our first sunny and warm day of the year so we got outside and kicked the yard’s ass. I even got a jump-start on our garden: begonias, peas, strawberries, and artichokes (so far.)  

2.  My oldest friend came for a visit with her daughter to spend spring break with us. And we had so much fun: The arcade,  zoo, voodoo donuts, the rainy-rainy coast, and saturday market. Yummy food. Staying up late gossiping and watching Jesus Camp (because that’s much worse, or better, than any scary movie) and Archer. Two more sunny days that didn’t go to waste. And Eric started on her half sleeve:

Jealous? I totally am.

3. A much (much) needed night out and too many vodka gimlets. At least it was for a good cause: Tsunami relief.

4. The Danger-man killed me because he’s hilarious!

“knock knock.” ‘
who’s there?’
“Star wars”
‘Star wars who?’
“let me think about it…”

“Hey, you know what? Girls are gooder than me..”

5. I celebrated my blogaversary. (not really celebrated but, you know, it happened.) And since my first ever post was about april fool’s day I should share this year’s events with you. The Danger-man and I made cupcakes and decided to pull a prank on Eric. The plan was for the Danger-man to take his iced & sprinkled cupcake to Eric, offer it to him, then say “April Fools.” Nothing as crazy as a squirrel in the kitchen…  Too bad Eric was asleep on the couch when we put our plan in effect. His brain was all fussy and he was a bit slow on the uptake when the Danger-man shouted “April Fools” so, he didn’t give the cupcake back. Instead he took a bite. And the world ended. (Or at least that is what it sounded like from the kitchen.)   

the danger-man says he's now "the sprinkle-man!"

And now my spring break is here and I need to start preparing for the Danger-man’s 5th birthday. (Holy crap…he’s going to be five this month!)

hey there, blogsville…

So, yesterday morning the Danger-man comes tearing into the livingroom to tell me that he saw a squirrel in kitchen and ‘the squirrel left us a pinecone.’
really?!  a freaking squirrel? I haven’t even had a stinking cup of coffee. (which won’t be enough-but I’ll take what I can get)  how in the hell did a squirrel get into the freaking kitchen, anyway!
I nearly started crying. We really needed to LEAVE and the Danger-man still(still) needed to put on his socks. I really did not have time to deal with this squirrel. Okay, I admit, it doesn’t sound that bad. It’s only a small, wild animal. Plus, it brought us a gift. Nothing I can’t handle, normally; but it’s hard getting the hang of having two kids. And, I nearly had both of  ’em, and myself (which is saying a lot these days) ready to go.  (I know, waaaahhhhh, right?)
I started tentatively looking for this pinecone but I didn’t  see it. Only then, did I realize that the Danger-man could not stop giggling. Finally, it hit me—he pranked me! I gave him the side-eye and asked him what happened to the squirrel, only to hear: “April Fools.” I nearly started crying for a whole new set of reasons.   

So, I suppose, this is me -starting a blog. Good start, no?
Now, let’s see if I can hang.

Welp, welcome to my {our} life.
