Happy Easter!

I know this is a day late...but we were busy this weekend!

Friday I was preparing for an Open House to benefit a local relay team for the American Cancer Society, and spent the day sorting, packing, and running up and down stairs in between potty trips with Captain Chaos, making lunch, and naps.

Saturday was spent getting things ready with BB to enable us both to be gone the whole day...he with the kids, me without, but working. We packed diaper bags, snack bags, product, cameras, phones...BB was armed for WWIII...and didn't use a single thing he took with him, and proceeded to tell me the rest of the evening and most of yesterday how he didn't understand why I had to take so many things with me, just to be gone a day...it made me a little bit cranky, but hey, he happened to have a day where Captain Chaos didn't wet his pants, Tiny Princess didn't throw food on herself, and they didn't freak out about needing food or beverages...

I had a great day, met some neat people, and happened to make some money at the Open House...each businesswoman donated a portion of her proceeds to the ACS...which made it that much better...

BB took the kids to the egg hunt at Church, then to a mall, and bought them lunch, and toys, and candy, and then expected them to sleep for the rest of the afternoon when he got them home...he was a bit upset that they only slept for 2 hours...

Sunday we went to Church, came home, ran around like chickens with our heads cut off to get dinner ready, table set, eggs hidden, baskets filled, diapers changed all before my parents and brother came over for the meal...we ate, talked, cleaned up dishes, put away leftovers, ate dessert, talked some more, drank 2 pots of coffee, talked, and they headed out around 4:30.

the kids napped for about 3 hours, and we ate some dinner, watched a little toob, and headed to bed.

This morning, BB and I got up and worked out together for the first time in quite a few weeks...almost 2 months actually...YIKES! We've been sporadically working out, just not at the same time.

The kids woke up at 6:30, and we had breakfast together. BB took the truck to work because the car wouldn't start...leaving me stranded for the day...

I've now done 2 loads of laundry (I'm taking a break), carried 12 loads of toys and MK product to the basement, cleaned up the playroom, and am now getting ready to make lunch...

I'm worn out, sore, but have a sizeable deposit to make to my account tomorrow...

The only downside?!?!?!? Tomorrow I go see the nutritionist...
