Spring, Asthma and Laundry

Well, seemingly, spring is here. Although, its a typical Michigan spring. One where its 80 degrees one day and 50 the next. Lovely, don't you think? That brings me to my next topic. Asthma.
My kids went through the entire winter with no episodes, and suddenly, (due to the wishy-washy spring weather) are coughing up their lungs. I am trying to use Albuterol sparingly because the girls get so hyper when I give them their breathing treatments. Hyper and irritable. Combine their irritablity with my PMS and the fact that Scott is on a business trip, and I'm sure you can imagine the shape my home is in.
Which brings me to the NEXT topic. Am I the only person who has FIVE loads of laundry to put away? I don't mind washing or folding the clothes. I HATE putting the clothes away.
So, there you have it. My week in just a few words.
Maybe next week will be better.

How Nerdy Are YOU?

I took this great test, sent to Scott from his brother.
I scored 39...I'm not nerdy, but definitly not hip.
What did YOU score?


I am nerdier than 39% of all people. Are you nerdier? Click here to find out!

Home Again, Home Again, Jiggety, Jig

Well...we are on our way home from Virginia.  We had a wonderful time.  We stayed at a resort that was a horse farm.  Unfortunately, Scott and I did NOT get to go riding, but that's a really looong story.  The short version is this, do NOT buy a timeshare from BlueGreen Vacation Resorts...not worth the sales pitch hassle.  We didn't buy...just tried 'em on for size, and we won't be buying.
Anyhow.  The girls got to ride a pony and pet some  goats and chickens and mules and horses.  They had such a blast!  We went to Montpelier, James and Dolly Madison's home.  That was really cool.  They are in the middle of restoring the manor back to its original early 1800's frame and decor.  We saw its bare bones, and it was very fascinating.  I want to go back and revisit it when the restoration is complete.  The girls were EXCELLENT on the one hour tour.  When the tour began, there were a few older women that were eyeing the girls with obvious worry.  I think they thought we might disrupt the tour.  But by the end, those same women were smiling at the girls and me with delight.
We shopped a bit and I am delighted to say that by the end of the week I will be the proud owner of two, small but beautiful, antique stained-glass windows.  I plan to hang them on my soon-to-be-newly-painted-yellow bedroom wall.

We are ready to be home...we just hope that we can remember how to get back on schedule!

Love to you all.
