The kids are on spring break - anyone else out there want to see this little vacation disappear? Does anyone out there really have the money to actually go somewhere during this little hiatus? Never mind, I don't want to know if there are LOL. I personally wish they could do away with this and just get out of school a week earlier, they already go to school until the last week of June and it really interferes with actual summer plans where we might have enough time to head back to MN for a bit. We drive, as it's cheaper and also we take our dogs everywhere, so one week is definitely NOT enough time to do this, and sorry to my fellow northerners, but a week of mud season isn't much of a temptation this time of year :). So what to do with them?
The other night we took the boys and a friend to see a movie on base. I really hate movie theaters and we only go about once or twice a year for the kids, but I should do it more since they really enjoy it, and on base the movie is $2 and for $3 they get a kids tray that includes popcorn, drink and small candy - where else can you get that anymore? Here's a tip though: if you have kids and they want to see "Rango", send the hubby or someone else, it was horrible! I kept thinking I should have sent hubby and I could have stayed home for some sewing LOL, but it was nice seeing them have such a good time!
Upon cleaning out my purse of spilled Goobers from our theater trip before they melt, I ended up dumping out the contents of the purse... anyone else have things like this in their purse? LOL, the photo is missing the length of 550 cord that was in there somewhere... just what do you suppose I might need this for? Maybe a mob job? Maybe a redneck style gut & clean game job while on the way to music practice?
Upon arriving home from some errand, we found Sprocket up to her old tricks...
Oh yes... those are my glasses...
I finally gave in to Finn's pleas for a "big boy haircut"... I don't normally get all emotional and stuff about my kids growing up, but this haircut aged him about 3 years and I want his bowl cut back! I normally cut their hair but had to have the initial big change done for me... I think I'll pay him to grow it back :)
Today I will be planting the rest (only 3 more) of the tomatoes, the eggplant and maybe the peppers. The nighttime lows are really warming up and the days are now into the 80's. Below, check out the 'Jake Gyllenhall' (mystery heirloom) tomato, it's the one on the left. I have 2 of these, and they are HUGE. What's even crazier is that they are sturdy like a tree! There is an heirloom Long Keeper next to it for comparison, as that's the size of most all of my seedlings. I'm thinking maybe I should plant those right up in the patio area so they can serve as a nice shade tree come August?!
Anyone else dared put in the peppers and eggplant yet?
