Robins and Green Grass

spring-clip-art21

 

I’ve been noticing the signs of Spring everywhere lately! The grass is beginning to get more and more green and the trees are starting to send out little buds. Today as I was going to the car, I even saw some robins! Spring is truly here!

Hip hip hooray! The weather last week was so nice that I really am hating the cold weather that we have been having so far this week. Bleh! Bring back the warm! We love it!

I haven’t been up to anything spectacular. I feel like I’m busy all the time! This is what has happened in the last week:

  • Switched over to Straight Talk and got my first Smartphone
  • Worked
  • C has an asthma attack and had to go to the ER. (He’s fine now, just couldn’t get his breathing under control).
  • E accidentally locked my keys in my car on St. Patrick’s Day and I had to call the locksmith to come out and unlock it. $45 is what it cost!
  • Lost 6.8 lbs in a week!
  • Got 4 letters in the mail but only sent out 1.

That’s been my week!

Library Card, FitBit and Warm Spring Days!

Hello Spring! I’ve missed you! We’ve been busy the last week or so! The weather has been FANTASTIC for the last week! No coats! We just need jackets in the mornings and short sleeves in the afternoon! When I got home yesterday from work, K ran out and had to tell me all about his day before I even got out of the car! So I just had to snap a picture!

K looking sweet!

I have BIG news and that is that E can now go to the library and check out books!! He was so excited that not only was he able to get his OWN library card, just like his brothers, but he can check out books that he can read all by himself!

He told the librarian after he got his card, “When I grow up, I can buy a truck with this!”. Haha! Does he think that it’s a credit card? Here’s a picture of him reading at the library. He was so excited that he just sat down and began reading!

I finished my 7th book for the year and it fulfilled the Reading Challenge “Part of a trilogy”. It was a really good book! When I checked it out, there were only 3 books but when I returned it, the librarian told me that the author just published book 4 and there is book 5 in the works! Eeep! I think it still counts though.

Book 7 so far in 2015!

Mail has been pretty steady. Since I last blogged, I’ve received 4 letters and a postcard. I haven’t taken pictures, but maybe later. The boys have had 3 more basketball games but have lost them all. They sure try hard!

Oh and I almost forgot! One of the health departments that I work for ordered everyone a FitBit! As I’m only a part-time employee, I had to pay for part of mine. I got the Flex and had to just pay $29, so that’s a pretty good deal! I just got it this morning, so there hasn’t been much activity. I hope this really helps motivate me and to keep me honest about the calories that I take in and the exercise that I do/don’t do.
