This Week's 'To-Do' List
  • Work... I have to put in some extra hours this week since I'm taking today off and Friday is a paid holiday for our work and my paid holidays to cover all my hours... It's confusing either way I have to work extra. 
  •  Mon & Thurs I have music class as per normal
  • Saturday we have an Easter party to go to and overlapping with it we have a Birthday party also that evening so we've got to figure that out in some way.

    Seems about the jist of it just watch though every week that looks easy normally something blows up. 
  • Oh wait... this weekend is Easter isn't it... So put down dye eggs.... which means I need to buy lots of eggs. 

    Last Week

    I really can't remember too well. We celebrated my Birthday with a very nice dinner and I introduced the girls to calamari which Katherine liked but Brielle wasn't sure of and I think that was because it was over cooked so very rubbery.

    I took Brielle to STEM club, Katherine had other obligations. Then in a whirlwind of events I rushed home got Kat and we went to the library where they made these cute no sew pillows. 

    We had one of the girls friends stay the night this past week.

    Peter and I got out to go to a St. Patties day party for a little bit too though we know our limits and made our goodbyes early in the evening. 

    Played a lot of MechWarrior Online (Did I mention we're a gaming family... Like seriously)

    I had Stitch N Bitch this past Sunday too though I didn't accomplish anything but it was nice to get out even if I did have a headache all day.

    Last Week

    I kind of went over last week on Friday's post. Over the weekend we just played a lot of various games and threatened the children with toy deprivation if the rooms weren't cleaned. That was really the jist of it all. 

    Oh the blanket I sent off finally got received. It was suppose to get there Thursday... it got there Saturday. 

    I was told she loves her new blanket which makes me very happy to hear.

    Catching up Friday

    Well I didn't get to make a Monday post because I volunteered to go into work because my supervisor was leaving Wednesday for surgery and was going to be out for the next few months so I wanted to make sure I was there for any work he needed done which there was quite a bit.

    Monday, I had work, took an actual lunch break to have lunch with my husband, orthodontist appt for Brielle and then I had class.

    Tuesday, I went to work and I opted to go do the grocery shopping which had not been done so no gym time and I stood in line forever at the postal service to mail off the blanket.

    Wednesday, I tried a new recipe from the "Don't Panic More Dinner's in the Freezer" book I picked up at the library. Instead of putting it in the freezer though I put it in the fridge before I ran off to work. I I went to the gym and watched a movie, "Containment." It was an interesting enough movie, a little violent but it wasn't bad.

    Thursday, more work but at least it was the last day of work. Then I went to the gym for longer than I expected as I watched the movie, "The Colony." Which ended up being a hell of a lot more violent than I had expected and just a lot of suspense. So much so I started using the heart rate monitor on the treadmill and it sure did spike it.

    Friday, I'm off as you see.
    There's lots of responsible things to do but Thursday at work I tweaked my back so I'm just trying to take it easy. I haven't decided what I'm going to do yet the only thing I have set is at 5pm I need to pick up Brielle from one of the schools from sectional orchestra practice they have a large performance and are working on college level music. They really are an awesome orchestra. I remember going to the big performances when she was little and thinking after listening to her and the rest of her class that they could never be as good as the high schoolers but not only are they that good but they have surpassed them.

    Okay!! Pictures. I have a bunch to catch up on. I actually need to pause writing this so I can load a couple since last weekend was Brielle's Homecoming so I have pictures of that too.


    Don't mind the messy house.

    Parmesan Garlic Chicken

    Parm Chicken w/pasta, salad and pickled beets. I think the chicken needed more seasoning so I just added extra Italian seasoning to the top of mine but over all it got a thumbs up not for an every week meal but every once and awhile the family said it would be good. My husband wonders how it would be with actual spaghetti.

    I meant to post this 11 hours ago but life happened.
    ... To note I'm unhappy with USPS right now the blanket was suppose to be delivered Thursday and it's still out and hasn't been delivered. I just got notification that at least it is in the right state now.
