    One week until sping parent/teacher conferences. Only a few days left before 3rd quarter grades are due. Where has this year gone? And how soon can summer vacation get here?

    It is sad...... I also watched followup stories about the Michigan H.S. basketball player who recently died of an enlarged heart. Wes Leonard was such a great kid.....

    So...I have an aunt & uncle visiting for the day who I haven't seen in 5 years. I suggested we all go to a restaurant & my mom was thinking back to the house for dessert. I think that will break up the monotony of sitting up at home for 3-4 hours. We'll get to get out, get fresh air, & not worry about what to cook. They'll probably come around noonish or 1:00.

    That's wonderful, Mrs. C.

    No wings for us-- it's a Friday in Lent.

    But we are going to the mall in a while, to get a present for a birthday party tomorow afternoon. So it looks like either sushi or pizza for dinner.

    I couldn't sleep this morning ....... sooooo I made a large pot of coffee around 4:00 AM, and fired up the laptop. My babies (that is my wife and my lab) are still upstairs sound asleep, so the house is nice and quiet..... I'm a lucky man.

    Minus the coffee (and the "man") part, that's me too. I love when the house is all quiet.

    If I go upstairs and put on the kettle, I'll wake up the dog, who will in turn wake up Peter. Sooooo I'll enjoy my solitude in the basement minus the tea for now.

    Sooo... Elizabeth Taylor died. Even though she has been so sick I kind of always thought she would pull through, like she has done in the past. :(

    Yes, it's sad about Taylor. I think they said she had planned a party at her hospital, so she knew the time was about to come.

    Sooooo.... we were going to go to the play at Peter's school. But Brian has been home all day with a stomach bug. So instead, I'll let Peter take the girls, and I'll stay home with Brian and get some more freelance done.

    Sooooo rws.... it's not "spring time" here in the Rockies either .... Took the Lab pup for a short trip up to about 8,000 ft...... where the snow was fairly deep...... We were treated to a small flock of Rocky Mt Bighorn Sheep crossing the road.... These animals are so powerful ..... and at the same time graceful.... What a great day!!!

    Soooo, my weeklong spring break's just about over & it rained most of the time. Just like how it rained the 1st 1/2 of my Christmas vacation. Yet, before both breaks, the weather was good.

    At least I had a fun gals' day of shopping & lunch w/ a friend today & was hoping we wouldn't have to cancel due to rain. I really needed this day!

    After a morning of ball season starting, I held the couch down the rest of the afternoon. No snow to blame, but apparently it rained while I was snoozing. I didn't hear a thing!

    Saturday afternoon naps are rare in this house so I took advantage of it!

    Lauren just left to go snowboarding for the last time this season. My husband is running his first race of the season, so I have the house to myself until about 5:00!
