Another career option

Another one to add to my list of career paths that I am glad I did not follow...plumbing. One of the bathroom sinks wasn't draining right, so I took it apart. Eeewww! I'd forgotten that lovely stink of stagnant, clogged water. Even more fun, the cleaning out of the slimy, black clog. I had so much fun with the first sink that I went ahead and checked the second sink. I think I will leave the downstairs bathroom for another special day.

Day One

Alana is off to spend a few days in Washington, D.C. with her dad. She was so excited as they pulled out of the driveway this morning. So, a day on my own. Not exactly the stuff that movies are made of. A few errands. Stuff to do around the house. Out in the yard with the dogs on such a beautiful day. Catch the Red Sox game. Some knitting. Now I'm starting to wind down. Having dinner alone is strange. Oh, and I changed my header photo to make Patti happy. The rest of the week I'll be working and going to Tae Kwon Do.
Sure is quiet.

Easter 2009

Coloring the eggs gets easier every year. Alana is pretty much on autopilot at this point. Occasionally she'll check in with me to ask a question, but for the most part my role is that of audience. I just love how pretty they all are.
The egg hunt at Grammie's is the highlight of her day. Sure, she enjoys her basket in the morning, but finding the eggs is the best. She wouldn't even care if the eggs were empty. As the kids get older the level of difficulty goes up.
Each kid has their own color egg, so there's no racing to collect the most. Ofcourse, that doesn't mean that an egg might "accidentally" get moved to another hiding spot. I only wish that it would be warmer. Today the wind coming across the pasture was particularly biting. Don't be fooled by the teenager without a coat on!

Opening Day

Tomorrow is opening day at Fenway. It's been a long winter and we're ready for some baseball. On sure, we've watched a few spring training games, but it just doesn't seem right when there is snow on the ground and the pellet stove burning. Although we won't actually be able to make it to Fenway until the Futures game in August, we'll be cheering our team on from the couch.
