Nothing Important.

Do you just love it when you go get your hair done and leave feeling all refreshed and then you get home and take a good look at your new hair and realize the girl cut your bangs too short?  Yep.  I do.  It's super awesome.  sigh.  That along with the puffy red brow I have from getting the brows waxed.  I thought you were supposed to feel pretty after a trip to the salon.  Why do I have to actually endure a recovery period before I feel like it's an improvement?  It's not like I just had plastic surgery...

So my short bangs and I haven't been here for awhile.  Sorry.  I'm back, and my brain thanks me for coming to sit down to dump some excess out while I have my coffee this morning.

I don't mean to sound cliche, but how about this weather????  Can you believe it?  I feel so springy!  We've got a busy week ahead of us, and I have a ton to do, so this weather is such a gift.  It's so energizing!  Well, that along with the coffee I've had and the Monster drink I'm about to have is energizing.  Ha!  When I'm done writing for the morning, I'm turning up the tunes and starting the spring cleaning!  Yahoo!  With the windows open!  Ahhhhh.

Today is the last day of school for my kiddos before the spring break.  To me, that's a signal that the school year is winding down, and summer is almost upon us.  I'm really excited for summer this year.  We've been doing so many improvements to the house and yard, and this summer our landscaping projects should be paying off.  I'm looking forward to a LOT of time spent on my porch this year.  Hopefully we can train Freddy to not take off and he'll be able to lounge around on the porch and in the yard with us, and we will be able to trust him.  We'll see.  He's just like Doug from the movie "Up".  Squirrel!  He even looks sort of like him:

See?  I love it.

Yesterday the hubby was feeling pretty sick.  I think he's better today, since he went to work.  But we took the dog out without his leash for a while.  It was just so nice out!  He's getting better all the time at hanging around, but eventually he did take off after something, and ran way down into the valley behind our place.  Hubby trudged down after him, and he got Freddy to come bounding back up, but it was irritating.  And it could be so dangerous if he takes off and runs out into the road!  I can't even bear to think about it.

Anyway, we'll get it figured out.  And I just love Freddy so much!  My nickname for him is Frederico Consuelo Poochito.  I know.  Leave it to me to think of nicknames that are substantially longer than the real name.

I got to get out this week with SIL3 for lunch and a movie.  It was great to hang out with her for a few hours without the kiddos.  She's so fun to chat with, and we don't get together nearly often enough.  I know I say that about everyone, but that's because it's true.  Maybe I should just see if everyone would just do me the favor of moving out here by me so I could see them whenever I want...  But we had a great lunch at Chipotle and then went to see our chick flick.  We try to do that occasionally, and keep hoping to do it more regularly.  Hopefully that will get easier as time goes on.  We saw The Vow.  Nice movie.  There's a tough car crash scene in it though.  I can't stand car crash scenes.  I've been in a few, and one was particularly rough, and that sound and visual just floods everything back again.  No matter how hard I try to forget about it.  But the movie was sweet.  We thought the ending wasn't that satisfying, but it was based on a true story.  I suppose there's not much they could do about that.  As for a review, my official review is that it's worth renting, not worth full movie theater price.  But it was great to hang out with my girl.

I have to get busy.  Lots to do, and precious little alone time before people start getting home again.  Folks, if you're in Minnesota, I appreciate you reading my little blog, but shut it off now and GO OUTSIDE!  I'll post again this weekend.  Oh lordy.  I just remembered I have to go to the dentist Monday morning.  AUGH!
