lately /

Well, after a super nutty last week, things have slowed down quite a bit. This week I have been home, waiting for some paperwork to come through before I can report to my next project. It's gonna happen any day, so in the meantime, I am doing my best to take advantage of these lazy days. If Luke's mom were still coming over to watch the kids, I would tell her not to come this week. But since we already paid for daycare, the kids still go...while I have the whole house to myself (!!). Peace and quiet...I've missed you!

Since I wasn't in a rush to get to work, the kids didn't have to rush either. Here they were on Tuesday morning, enjoying breakfast. Instead of nagging at them to hurry up, which I normally do, I picked up the phone and took this picture.

This was me taking a stroll around the neighborhood, admiring the daffodils that are (finally) popping out, before picking the kids up from daycare.

I even cleaned the stove burner! It was completely disgusting, but I am not embarrassed to show a before picture because they are now sparkly clean. After all the scrubbing, my arms were so tired that I laid in bed for about an hour. I didn't sleep, just laid there. haha, it was niiiiice :)

The weather has been great this week that after I pick up the kids, we just stay outside for a little bit longer. Last night after dinner, we went back out to play with bubbles and the kids took turn riding in the buggy. Spring is in the air! It puts me in a happy mood.

Despite of some spurts of time wasting on the Internet, I am staying pretty productive overall -- I already finished the kids' Easter baskets and put together the goody bags for Anna's Easter party at school happening next week. I purged and threw away a bunch of stuff and gave a box of toys for baby Andrew to my dad. Tomorrow I plan to take Will out of daycare in the morning so I can take him to music class (didn't think we were going to make it, but the timing is perfect). Then this weekend, we are taking the kids to see dinosaur (bones). Hope your week is going great, like mine!
