Can You Smell It?

Spring is in the least here in Mobile. The mornings are brisk, the days are bright & blue, the nights chilly. It's far cry from what we were experiencing Wednesday. I think that Spring is one of my favorite time of the year....other than having to do that "Spring Cleaning!" Although Big Daddy & I got a head start earlier in the week & cleaned out the it's time for the rest of the house. Guess I should get my schedule going....shampoo carpets, wash windows, clean out closets, etc. If we do little by little then it shouldn't be so bad....right? Do you "spring clean?" If you do what are some of your tips? What do you do at this time, that you don't do on a normal basis? Inquiring minds want to know....PLEASE SHARE!

Wet Wednesday

The rain is coming down hard.....lightening & thunder are booming in the skies....severe thunderstorm & tornado watches have been issued....Sweet Home Alabama!!! It's definitely one of those days where staying in bed is a GREAT IDEA....but with the girls home, it's kind of pointless. So instead of my curling up with the animals & reading a good book...I'll be dealing with "I'm bored, there's nothing to do!" Not too mention the arguements than will ensue throughout the day, because of nothing else better to do. Already my day has started out on the wrong foot, I'm trying to type with the keyboard at an angle, due to the shelf that rolls out & holds the keyboard is BROKE & no matter how many times we fix it, it still manages to fall off onto our knees. I'm thinking it's time for a new "desk" & has been for awhile, but coming up with money to purchase one, is like having monkeys fly out of my butt!!! All in due time I guess.

Fat Tuesday....A Holiday?

Yes it in the South! So that makes for a loooonnnnnggg weekend. Big Daddy & the girls are both off....the girls don't go back to school until Thursday, Big Daddy back to work on Wednesday. So seeing as how Mardi Gras is the thing to do, we thought we might check it out this year....seeing as how Big Daddy's bosses are VERY INVOLVED! Saturday was the MOT Pararde (Mystics of Time), which is just one of the many that go on during this time, but we decided that this would be a good one to see since this was one of his bosses parades. I was actually pleasantly surprised. You hear so much negative about Mardi Gras, that I really didn't know what to expect. We were located towards the end of the parade route, so other than it taking awhile for us to actually see the parade....ALL was a GOOD TIME!!! Being that it was our FIRST MARDI GRAS ever, we were inexperienced & in desperate need of "what to do?" Fortunately the folks around us were GREAT in showing us the ropes! Once we got the hang of it we were just like everyone else there.....getting caught up in the moment. The girls walked away with beads galore, moonpies, & stuffed animals!!! Kailee really got caught up in it all.....she was waving & smiling to the maskers, which helped in the cause of them getting "treats." Big Daddy & I said we'll go again next year, but we're going in with a plan!!! Anyway we as a family had a great time at Mardi Gras!!!!
