Welcome March - You Lucky Month!

Daffodil Days are here.  How sunny and lovely!

Important dates in March:

March 2: Did you know today is Dr. Suess's Birthday?? Happy Birthday to Dr. Suess!  If you are looking for Dr. Suess related activities, visit this site or your local library for fun ideas to keep your little ones busy.

March 5 (personal): Carl, Jr.'s 21st birthday.  Happy BD!!

March 8: Daylight Savings Time begins.  Spring forward one hour. 

Wearin' of the green is Sunday, March 17th.  We will be making a pot of gold cookies (recipe to come) with the kiddies.

March 19 celebrates the first day of Spring! 

Get your spring cleaning lists in order. Did you know there is a National Cleaning Week??? This year it begins the fourth Sunday of March - March 29th.  Time to put away the winter clothes, sweep out the cobwebs and plant a few seeds indoors.

Looking forward to a busy and "lucky" month,

Trish

Today I Will...

Amelia's cover girl look.  Yes, she does her own make-up.
No list yesterday.  Too hectic a day at the office and the evening was spent at an animal hospital with Tails, our cat.  We thought he may have broken his front leg, but it turns out he has an abscess from a bite (he is a fighter).  He came home wearing the cone of shame which the children loved as they have been watching UP on repeat. 

If I had made a list yesterday, it would have included paying a mountain of bills and putting out the trash, which I did.  It also would have included a load of laundry and cleaning the kitchen.  Neither of which I did.

Today's list includes:
1. Load of laundry.
2. Food shopping.  We normally would do this tomorrow, but Elliot and Amelia have head/chest colds and their father is home today, so Kayla and I are sneaking out this evening and getting that chore done.  Plus we are out of cereal and milk.
3. Hug and cuddle the kiddies.
4. Relax.

What's on your to do list?? 

Also, how do you plan to spend your "extra" day of February???? 


Happily,
Trish

What is on your to do list for today??

In other news, our cat, Tails, was injured last evening.  We are not sure how, but it appears he hurt his leg. Badly.  Going to the Vet.

Our upstairs bathroom is looking fine!  My cousin, God Bless Him, Bob, is fixing this old house.  He took the paint off the old light fixtures - they are porcelain! Now that the ceiling is fixed, next is paint and a new floor.

It did  not rain in our house yesterday.  Thank you, Bob!

Until tomorrow,

Trish

Update:

1. I paid a ton of bills.
2. Will give up a few pounds (WW) and am thinking that instead of giving something up, I would give and do more (more on this later).
3. I cuddled with the kiddies.
4. Did a load of laundry.
5. Cleaned my Bedroom
6. Did not drink 64 oz.
7. Did keep track of what I ate.
8. Can cross off most of the list.

Today, I will...

Happy Fat Tuesday!

Today I will,

1. Celebrate Mardi Gras with chocolate pancakes for dinner!
2. Wash one load of laundry.
3. Clean the bathroom.
4. Home-school
5. Read a chapter
6. Cuddle with my kiddies.

Edited: We did not celebrate with pancakes as Kayla had made a delicious chicken dinner (mashed potatoes, mixed veggies and ice cream for dessert). I did not get a load of laundry done.

Wait, let's talk about what I can cross of my list.  I cuddled with all three kiddies (Elliot is not feeling well).  I read chapters of Gone.

I accomplished the most important items on the list. On to tomorrow!
