I wish I could say that my desire to write about my life is the inspiration behind this post...but the reality is I was sick of looking at that damn rutabaga picture form the last post. I'll be honest. I fell off the new vegetable a week wagon. It ended when I bought a bunch of collard greens that eventually rotted in my fridge. It's not that I don't like vegetables...I'm just too busy to deal with them. So, my one New Year's resolution has been x'd from my life. Although I have eaten radishes and avocado since the rutabaga and I liked them both.
Now...on to the rest of my life (a rushed catch up)....
For Christmas I whipped out a bunch of scarves
My awesome 8-year-old friend sent me a Flat Stanley...named Flat Beudrey. I had the pleasure to taking Flat Beau with me on a tour of my life. When he arrived he was a bit under dressed for the weather. So I made him some jeans, a U of MN t-shirt, a coat and a matching scarf to keep him toasty.
For Spring Break I headed back to DC for more time with the babies...oh how I love those babies. For Mer's birthday I watched all three kids while she and Dan spent the night away. It was a bit of an eye opener to go from no kids to three kids in a matter of minutes. But my only goal was to keep everyone alive and I was successful. The experience solidified that I do NOT want to be a full time single parent and having multiples is probably more than I can handle.
Topher and Jillian were there in the morning to help me out...the gang probably wouldn't have fared so well if they hadn't been. After Dan and Mer relieved us of our duties Topher, Jillian and I went down to the National Mall for a bit of sight seeing. It was a BEAUTIFUL day and there was one cherry tree in full blossom:
There were alligators in South Carolina...lots of them.
Angel Oak (another woody tree)
South Carolina was full of surprises...I ate shrimp and grits, raw beef, amazing tacos, and THE BEST WINGS in the world. I also spent time with a dread pirate and learned lots of fun historical facts about Charleston. I loved it. Thanks South Carolina for making me fall in love with you!
I spent the final days of Spring Break with this critter:
And last but certainly not least is this guy:
