Okay so I haven't blogged in a while...

Where do I begin? I had three girls over to spend the night again. We hunted for Easter eggs in the dark...we dressed up in goofy costumes in the dark...we sang at the top of our lungs in my kitchen (which echoes) and used half a bottle of soap doing dishes...

I've raked and raked and raked. And my yard looks like I need to rake it.

I babysat five kids for five days...That was a blast. We made a water balloon launcher. After several tries, we did successfully start seeing balloons go flying...Then we had to try to find all the broken balloon pieces. One of the kids said someone should invent water balloons that dissolve. Yeah, good idea.

I made a new friend last night. I talked with an old friend the night before. That's right, an oooold, married friend, Kimmie. I'm planning another trip to California in May to see another old friend get married.

I taught a ladies Bible study on the woman at the well. I guess I should say I "led" a ladies Bible study...either way...I was there and they were very patient with me. It's been too long since I did something like that.

I tried to tune my guitar for the first time in a year. And I was unsuccessful. Maybe I'll try to get some strings today. I'm sure that's the problem, the strings.

I played an offertory at church. That was another thing I hadn't done in forever. I love music!

My nephew turned two! I got to talk with him on his birthday. He is talking up a storm and doesn't call me "Yell" any more.

I've slept and eaten and laughed and cried and pretty much done everything but blog over the past few weeks. I will have to start thinking deeper thoughts and coming here to put them into words.

Bright Beginnings

Yesterday I accidently spilled something on my laptop keyboard. This morning when I came in, by "Y" key was sticking (along with a few others). So...I made the mistake of popping it off and trying to clean it up. I got it off all right, and the next thing I knew, I had five little pieces in my hand...not the best way to start a day.

It works (obviouslY), but I can't get the cover to stay on any longer...not even after 45 minutes or reassembling and superglue. Meanwhile, the other keys have stopped sticking. Why didn't I just leave it alone and type slowly for a while???

If anyone knows a good fix for computer keys would you let me know?

Thanks. :)

Life at the Law Firm

Curtis settled a big case last Wednesday, so that has taken quite a bit of the pressure off. In fact, it is getting hard to stay motivated when I can look out the window and see the sun shining, flowers blooming, and birds singing. Yes, the day is always nicer on the other side of the window.

I have had some out of doors time, so I can't complain. Over the weekend, I worked in the yard for several hours. I still have hours of raking to do in my backyard. I don't know where all those leaves come from. I'm sure some of them are from Australia. Just the same, I think I need to have some trees taken out so I'm not in this mess every year. The problem is, the pretty trees are the ones that are the messiest. What's up with that?

Anyway...back to work on this fine, fine Tuesday...
