Loose Ends No.1 Vol. 22

I'm staring at 14 inch tall chocolate rabbit as I write...with missing ears.

I've been trying for the last day or two to redesign my blog on my own...I've looked at countless backgrounds, clipart, banner makers...and I've realized something about myself. I need to use a pre-made blog. Click, click, click and you're done. I'm not a "web-designer/graphic artist/whatever they're called" kind of gal. Even though I want to be :(

I've eaten so many eggs this past weekend...deviled, boiled, saladed (is that a word?), casseroled (how about that one?), and scrambled that I do believe if I got a mirror back there, I'd see some tail feathers. Mark did ask me earlier about the red spiky thing sprouting on the top of my head.

I just ignored him.

Why the long pause between posts? Life, I guess...some things got pushed front and center...some things got stored on a shelf...and some things got sold in a yard sale. I hope to be a more faithful blogger going forward.

For the first time in 20 years of mothering, I didn't prepare Easter baskets for my kids...and this afternoon, two days later, I heard about it. I did buy them a treat (the previously mentioned ear-less bunny) but no baskets. But after the tongue-lashing I received today...next year...baskets for everybody!!! (Taryn just forced me to write that last sentence...she threatened to make me eat a purple Peep)

I've started couponing again...in the past I've gotten a little carried away with stockpiling deals. How many tubes of toothpaste can a family of five go through in a year? I don't think 93 is the correct answer...

The other day, I was so distracted in the kitchen, that I put our hot coffee pot in the refrigerator...and then spent 10 minutes looking for it.

A simple shopping story...

Her cart was dripping. The grocery cart she was pushing around the produce section of the big box store I had just entered was drippin...
