    Okay, so that hasn't really happened. So far I've done laundry, cleaned the house, been on AtoZ far too often..I still need to clean out and decorate the spare bedroom and the garage. I think that might wait until the summer.

    I'll still be working :( I petsit, and work at Mazda dealership at night as phone receptionist. So this is how my day will go:

    1. Carpool with boyfriend (each day we take turns driving, and one of us leaves our car at the dealership...less miles)
    2. Go petsit
    3. Sleep at parents house...lol...if I have time during the day
    4. Go to gym
    5. Petsit
    6. Go answer phones
    7. Complain that I am too tired, and don't want to play video games when we get home! GRRRR
    8. Fight boyfriend to turn off tv and sleep

    Sounds great! haha
    I might get my brother to take over petsitting though...I need a break. This year has been beyond stressful! I hope everyone else has a relaxing spring break.

    I managed to sleep in, it is now 10am, somehow though, I would like to subtract an hour because DH was up and would not get out of bed and leave for an hour!!! Anyhow, I did fall back asleep. It is snowing here...so much for hanging laundry out, guess I will have to use the dryer.

    One down, many more to go...

    My daughters' kindergarten starts at 10:00 so I slept in and can take them (instead of daycare before school).

    Make Easter Baskets for my angels.
    CLEAN the kitchen (not just throw dishes in dishwasher and swipe crumbs onto the floor - eww, I know).
    Wash, dry, fold, and put away laundry.
    Finish my credential work.
    Find my sense of humor.
    Cook meals - instead of "Honey, Wendy's cooking again!"
    Smile more.
