I had a good Easter even though I have some sort of allergy/sinus/cold. Yesterday, I had one whopper of a headache and it stayed with me all day. Today, I got my hiney up early for 8 am Mass and went. I came home, slept for a bit and went to my parents to BBQ for them. We watched Charolette's Web and Happy Feet. Cute! My niece and nephews came over later and we had an egg hunt and played Jr Monopoly, UNO, and Wig Out.
This is going to be a great week. I have only 3 workdays and then 2 days at TLA. My favorite YA authors Stephenie Meyer and Scott Westerfeld are going to be there. Yippee! I can't wait to get galley copies and chat with vendors. Maybe Shannon and I will win something cool. You never know.

Friday was my 35th Birthday. The May Magpies were awesome in sending birthday wishes. My birthday was just that...another day. I had to stay late because our school was celebrating its 25th anniversary. It was kind of cool though seeing some former teachers (I used to be a student at my school).
My best friend is due to have her baby in 2 weeks. I can't wait. I'm so excited that Miss Holly will be here soon. I am living vicariously through Sandra. Of course, my labor will be much longer in that I have to wait much longer. It would seem that I am having the gestational period of an elephant.
Speaking of elephants, Shannon and I were watching Africam at work on Friday and we saw elephants! There was a boy and a girl elephant. We knew it was a boy because it looked like he had an extra appendage. As we were watching, he started moving and undulating this 5th appendage like a snake. We busted out laughing. It had a life of its own. Obviously it impressed the female elephant. We definitely were intrigued. However, it was like watching dirty elephant movies...Thank God they left before we saw it go any further then we would have really felt dirty! I am probably going to have to confess that at confession.
Sunday is Easter. I am planning on painting Grace's room on Good Friday. I making space for her and getting ready...bringing positive energy so that a speedup is possible. I'm BBQing and hosting an Easter Egg Hunt. It'll be fun. Yea! Next year I will have my girl because she will be coming home by the end of 2007.
Did I tell you that I replaced the lower and upper thermostats on my hotwater heater as well as put back my solar screen door? I'm a regular Wendy from Bob the Builder. It was very satisfying. I also mowed my lawn earlier in the week (yep, bought me a nice mower for my birthday...how exciting).
Well...starting inventory tomorrow...Yippee...TLA the next week and TAKS the following week. Busy, busy busy, but good, good, good.
Yep, my 35th year is starting off well. It's going to be a great one.
