Spring Has Sprung



This weekend has been beautiful... too beautiful for me to stay inside. This, of course, has caused havoc with my allergies.. but I found that if I wrap my face up in a bandanna.. looking like an old time bank bandit... it keeps alot of the pollen from getting up my nose and causing me to sneeze uncontrollably. So we all enjoyed working outside. We have many projects listed for this summer... and it is so much fun finally getting started on them.

Yesterday I did go to the gym and did fantastic. I reached 35 minutes on the Elliptical machine... nearly killing my butt! I managed 30 minutes on the bicycle before becoming to antsy to get in the pool. I did 40 lapse.. double last weekends! It was wonderful. I am not even sore... but I feel great. I have fallen behind on my water this weekend.. so will have to double up the next couple of days. I have also eaten WAY TOO MANY carbs.. So this week I will have to keep a strict eye on what I eat.

I got a call on Friday from the hospital! I have an interview on Thursday morning. The job is in the OB. Yeah... babies!!! It is part time.. which in hospital lingo means two 12 hour shifts.. .and best of all, I am going to be working over night. I am keeping my fingers crossed that I get this job... it will mean more money that we desperately need right now.... besides that, it will be nice to do what I love again. I will leave you with a picture of our dog.. he likes to rest his chin on the gate and watch the girls... this time he is smiling! LOL

Have a Blessed Day

Yay a new post from you! Do you have a Walgreens where you are? They sell the generic of Claritin. I used to have REALLY bad allergies but I started taking those and it knocked them right out of me. Anyways, I hope you get the job, I'll keep you in my prayers, girlie!

We spent most of the weekend outdoors too - it was in the 40s, so we still needed a sweatshirt on, but it was just so gloriously beautiful!! The weird thing was still having snow everywhere! LOL! We're supposed to go up to 60 tomorrow, so I'm letting my girl wear a dress to school. She's so excited! LOL! And I'm so excited to walk outside tomorrow on my lunch hour! I love walking to Lake Michigan when the weather's beautiful!
