My Husband "Subvet" says that when our first son "Sonshine" was born the sun rose on our world, when our second son "Gator" was born the sun laughed and when our daughter "Sugars" was born all the flowers bloomed. That says it all.

"Life is not about waiting for the storms to pass...
It's about learning how to dance in the rain."

Your mind is the garden, your
thoughts are the seeds, the harvest can either be flowers or weeds. — William

first off. my google reader hadn't been touched since before Wednesday. I came, I saw, I counted, I deleted.

If you wrote something you'd like me to see, leave a link.

next....let's do goals.

1) Gonna try to beat that time (8.5 miles in 53 min) this weekend, we'll see.
made it to the gym twice this weekend. the second time I made 9 miles in 55 min 20 sec. :-)

2) I also need to finish Gator boy's footprint block
done! on to Sugars'...

3) put together Easter baskets,
oh yeah, I communed with my inner bunny and did the hop around the room...

4) get a referral for a MD appointment I have on Monday
got the referral in time...then had to cancel the apt. go figure.

5) replace my beloved trowel,
I was able to do this whilst bunny-hopping through Target.

So I won the game this week! I'll think of some goals to post in a day or two for next weekend, I'm working Tues, Wed, Thurs this week.

In the meantime.....I'm busy squirreling away ideas for this summer.

In addition to my vacation from July 5-22 during which I'm hoping to spend a weekend in Lafayette visiting my family, I'd like to:

work on reading and handwriting with the kids
get Gator (and maybe Sugars too) out of pullups and into underwear/panties
begin teaching Sonshine (and maybe the other two too) to play the piano
go on family field trips every 2-3 weeks. ideas for places to go are: Sharkarosa, Ft Worth Zoo, Dallas Arboretum, Planetarium, The Heard Museum, Family Theater Series, the Dallas Aquarium, ride the Tarantula and see the cattle drive at the Ft Worth Stockyards.

Of course, I have some bills I need to pay off before we can do all of this....but maybe we'll get some of them in this summer :-)

My goal for tonight is to get some work done on Sugars' footprint quilt block...which, oddly enough, ISN'T getting done while I type on this computer.
So I'll leave you with this clip of cuteness from Sugars' Easter "basket" from school today......I'm sorry to say that despite all of my practice, my moviemaking camera skills still suck, so please take your dramamine and bear with me....

Hey there Mighty Mom. Will join you on the goals point. I didn't post this on my blog but I have been asked to join a group of conservative political women bloggers. (Could we get more idiocyncratic? sp?) called potluck. I put a link on the sidebar. You might like the most recent potluck rant.

Sounds like you're a busy bunny as per usual. I have to do the 'delete' thing every once in awhile myself otherwise I'd do nothing but read blog posts for hours on end!

I feel like such a slug after reading all your goals. My goal for today is to take a nap, and eat some chocolate.
