Week in Review: Double Whammy 3/4/10 & 3/11/10

Time is flying and I've been neglecting my posts ... (bowing head in shame). I'm sorry. Even this will be a short post, but I will get back on track. Promise.The first week of March was filled with a wide variety of events. There was the Blue and Gold Banquet for the cub scouts. I was in charge of decorations and went to town with the balloons. (tip for all: for large quantities of balloons always use an air compressor; it's dreamy) Then we had a fireside and learned about the lives of Joseph and Hyrum Smith from two of their descendants. We sold the family van, watched the box elder bugs come back to life (shudder) and spent hours and hours at parent/teacher conferences ... 24 teachers in 2 days. Fun. Our two oldest daughters ended up grounded for the upcoming weekend as a result of the conferences. Ah, the joys of parenting.The second week was a different variety altogether! First, there was lots of sewing for items that I donated at our service auction. I made two more appliqued baby blankets (so fun) and two sets of appliqued burp cloths (adorable). The auction in itself was a blast; it was hilarious watching these sweet women go at it for the good buys. The Uruguayan empanadas were by far the biggest draw. Then there was an exciting trip to the Apple store to buy hubby dearest a new computer ... oh how I love my Mac. I was also taught a new technique for taping up my daughter's feet for track. The picture is only about half the process. We had spring snow and spring sun and it was all beautiful! Oh, and I interviewed for a new department at jetBlue! Results will post later this week.

Week in Review 2/25/10

So much to do. So little time. This is way past due and I need to post my next one in 2 days ... grr ... at least I'm keeping up on the part of it like a good girl. That was the biggest problem with project 365. I can only do what I can do, right?

So, let's see ... updates? Last week was another full one for us. I suppose the biggest event was getting Izzy 'fixed'. The poor thing had no idea what she was in for. She cried almost the whole ride home but was relieved that she wasn't being left at the vet forever. She has 6 lovely stitches in her belly and spent most of last week either sleeping or scratching at her tummy. She's just getting back to normal now and it's nice to see her playful side again. Hubby got a new work truck, which has been dreamy for us.
I've completed MORE training at jetBlue and am now back up on two help desks. The art program finished up at school so #1 is done helping out with that and #4 got to show off his creations at parent night. It rained. It snowed. We cooked. And I've finally returned our stack of cookbooks to the library. Oy.

And, yes, I'm still in possession of my wedding ring. We've become quite close again.
