Random Stuff

It's spring break for the kids. We spent a few days at the cabin, which was fun. There was a fair amount of snow when we arrived, but it melted the next day. At least the kids got to enjoy it before it was gone. Even though we went home, Collin stayed at the cabin for the rest of the week with his cousins.

Yesterday was Jay's birthday. He and I went out to dinner to celebrate.... sans kids! Hooray! He had to drive to Tucson today to speak at a convention, but he is on his way home... early enough for lunch. Double-hooray!

I got my haircut yesterday..... 4 inches off! People would never consider it short by any means, but it feels short to me because I have been wearing it long for the last several years.

The kids were watching our new DVD of "101 Dalmatians" and laughing their heads off. I couldn't figure out why until I went in and listened.... they were watching it in French, or "Francais" as Mary informed me.

Collin informed me recently that he and his best friend at school are making a movie. Every day at recess they work on writing the script. They are very serious about this and have every intention of seeing it through. I don't have the heart to tell them that it's not very realistic, but who knows.

We rented some DVD's from the library. What a great resource! My favorite one was "Howl's Moving Castle." If you haven't seen any of Hayao Miyazaki's movies, then you absolutely must! The others I have seen are "Kiki's Delivery Service" and "Spirited Away," and I loved them both.


  1. I can't wait to see your hair and the movies. I have loved your other recommendations.

    So sad for spring break to be ending. But so happy for it to be that much closer to having the school year DONE!

  2. Hi Alice! Glad you're having a fun spring break! The fun is just beginning here, my kids are off-track for three weeks. I'm sure your new do looks great! Remember when we went to The Chalk Garden and got our hair cut? Happy memories! Well, Au Revoir!

  3. Alice, thanks for your comment. It is so funny that you mentioned the pioneer trek you did with Tom. I have heard many many stories from that. Tom informed everyone that the Exodus was a piece of cake compared to the pioneer trek that he did.
