Nothing terribly earth-shattering to report here. The Easter Bunny came.
Side note: I don't like the Easter Bunny. Or should I say, I hate whomever came up with the concept? For some reason, I'm ok telling my kids about an old fat guy in a red suit who flies all over the world in a sleigh pulled by reindeer and delivers gifts to every kid in the world in one night. That doesn't bother me one bit. But on the other hand, I have the hardest time looking my kids in the eye and saying to them, "Look what the Easter Bunny brought you!" A giant rodent delivering chocolate replicas of himself to kids everywhere? Why, I ask. Why! I may as well sit down with them and say, "Sweeties, I think you're really, really dumb." What on earth does this have to do with the real reason we celebrate Easter? What do little tiny blades of plastic grass discovered all over my house for MONTHS after the actual day of Easter have to do with the resurrection? And don't get me started on the eggs that get hard-boiled, sloppily colored, and never eaten. Discarded! Thrown away! Ok, it's fun for them. I understand. And I wouldn't dream of taking it away from them. But just once I'd like to spend 5 minutes alone in a room with the inventor of the Easter Bunny.

Ok, technically, this is not me (the dummy in the bed OR the one standing up). But for those of you who are wondering why I have not posted in my usual frequent fashion---and also for those of you who couldn't care less---here's the latest...I'm currently taking a 3 week, highly intense (in terms of hours) nursing assistant course. The course runs full time, Monday thru Friday, 8am to 4pm. So...if you're wondering why I don't blog so much, there you have it. I'm a tad overwhelmed with my new schedule. Between studying, taking care of 4 little kids, laundry, meals, errands, all day in class, and trying to get my house sold, with each day starting at 4am, I'm plain old pooped. But prepare to be wow'ed. Are you ready? Wait for it, wait for it!! Ready? Wait for it!! OK. We've had two tests so far, and yours truly is the only one in the class who's gotten a perfect score on both tests. Two words: Woo. Hoo. Alright. Horn tooting session complete. Unless, that is, I ace tomorrow's test. In that case, you may hear from me again very soon...stay tuned.
BIG P.S. Thanks, love, gratitude, love, appreciation, more love, to my wonderful amazing spectacular family and friends for making this possible for me. Without your help I would NOT be sitting in class all day every day learning to clean people's bottoms (and I mean that in a good way). Mmmmwwwaaaaah!
