April Come She Will

My new battery powered porch lights I got for $12. They were very hard to find around town.

Ahhhhh. I finally get a three day weekend, and not a minute too soon. I'm taking my second to last furlough day tomorrow. Because the girls are still on Spring Break, and I don't have to get up early, I let Stinky have some friends over for a backyard fire. She invited some girls from her school and some boys from the local Catholic school. (one of them used to be our neighbor) Anyway, apparently some of the boys from Stinky's school, decided it would be funny to vandalize our guests' cars. Luckily, mine was in the garage. They didn't use eggs, like you'd think they would. Instead they used syrup. Awesome. All the party guests took their cars to the car wash, but one of them was a jeep with a canvas top and the owner of that vehicle got a little pissed. There were a few heated words exchanged, until I finally told Stinky to invite anyone she wanted to stay into the house to avoid anymore drama. Jaysus! but teenagers can drive a person to drinkin'.

Here's a close-up.

So, I would say that my three day weekend is not only necessary, but deserved at this point. What will I do with it? Um, I'm not exactly sure. I plan on getting a lot of errands run, my kitchen cupboards finally finished and get my place cleaned and organized. Word on the street, is that it's supposed to snow this weekend. I'm not surprised or even all that annoyed. It's Iowa in March. It's bound to happen. Plus, it will keep me inside and on task with my cupboards...Hopefully. I have no idea if I'll go out either night this weekend. I'm just going to go with how I feel or if someone asks me to hang out. We'll see.

How about you all? What are your weekend plans? Will you be recovering from teenage drama or will you be hibernating in the midst of a March snowstorm?

I like the lights. Hopefully they won't blow away in the wind.

Wow, syrup. I'm so anal, I would have hated it. Guess it's good I'm not a visitor at your place.

Syrup! Kids are so inventive....and wasteful! Imagine the frozen waffles left without cover.

Please enjoy your three day weekend, Churlita-style :-)
I will enjoy my two day weekend laura b.-style (lazy, lazy, lazy)

I don't have to get up early

I never realized how awesome that was until I had a kid!

The syrup reminded me of the stupid stuff my friends and I did as kids. TP'ing seems funny and harmless until you get older and realize it's such a pain to clean up, especially if it rains after the deed is done.

Cool lights.

I don't miss the Teenage Drama..
Hope that you can get stuff done.. I have more laundry to get done.. and some stocking of the pantry to do..
We are expecting mostly rain.. but I also heard flurries or wet snow.. If the sun is shining in the morning than I will be happy..If not then I will try to still wear a grin..

Enjoy the rest of your furlough..and drink lots of

I love the lights!

I'm happily settling into sanctuary for my extended stay. Feeling great.

Whatever you do... I hope you have some just for fun time.

I had to call off for Monday because of my cousin's funeral, but next weekend I'll have a four day weekend. I can't wait, I have a birthday lunch with my mom on Thursday, a free, 1 hour, professional massage on Friday and a little birthday party on Saturday. Can't wait! :)
