I've been a bad bad girl.....

So I typed up a very long, very fact filled post all about why I haven't been blogging and all the things going on in my life......

but my laptop battery died right before I saved!

So there was a bunch of crap about being busy and the Knaves playing sports and it fricking snowing here TODAY......

Anyway, since I don't remember it all so I thought I'd post a photo of what I woke to this morning instead.....

April 27, 2008

In this next photo you can just see the possible blue sky behind the snowy branches...

Blue sky through the snow

So yay! for me, snow. Snow on the ground with just 6 weeks till school gets out for summer. Great! Fabulous! Terrific! {if you can't tell I'm sick of snow}....

Anywho....if I can recover the other post I wrote I will post it as well, otherwise I will try to be back next week....same Qweenie time, same Qweenie station.....

Hey I found it....YAY!!!

Once again I haven't got a truly good excuse for my lack of blogging. I've tried to stay on task but things just seem to get out of hand this time of year. Between spring cleaning (is spring ever coming to this neck of the country?) and the kids' activities, I've been a busy busy girl! So let's see, maybe I can break down my news into small easy to swallow blurbs, if you have any questions please feel free to ask in a comment....

* My Aunt is dying of cancer. She recently decided that chemo wasn't going to help so she quit it. On the up side she seems a little bit better according to my father. We're hoping to get down to see her soon.....

* The Knaves have been taking Spanish every Thursday at the university (they offer a free program...soo cool!) but they only have two weeks left.....

* My upstairs (main floor) bath tub is stopped up thanks to the Knave of Spades' obsession with taking tiny little things into the shower with him, it's been unusable for more than two weeks despite the King and his dad's best efforts to find the little drain obstruction. On the other hand we have a very nice shower/bathroom in the basement so we've all been using that....

* I mentioned that the Knaves are both in sports right? well they are both playing soccer this spring and the KoH is playing baseball too. Unfortunatley the weather has been so hit and miss that we have only had one baseball practice and one weekend of soccer games. The Knaves have yet to wear shorts for any of their sports events and have so far have mostly played/practiced in a cold drizzle.....

* If April showers bring may flowers......what does April snow bring??

* The puppy is doing well. Winnie has finally mostly gotten a hold on the whole "peeing outside thing" (thankfully!!), I was about to my limit on the carpet cleaning.....

* There are only 6 Mondays left for the school year (counting today) and I couldn't be happier....

Ya know I think that's it for today....I can't think right now of anything else that I can add. I will try to keep up with the, really! Stop laughing!!

Some Photos for Now.....

I know I have neglected you all horribly! I am a hateful person for doing it and I apologize whole heartedly.
I have been super busy with the puppy since my last post and spring is struggling to "sprung" so desperately here that we actually had a 50 degree weekend followed by a school snow day last week.
Baseball starts for the Knave of Hearts this week as well as soccer. The other Knave (of Spades) has soccer starting too but this week he also has the Pinewood Derby for scouts....Whew!! I think there may be too much going on but who am I to complain.....I just keep driving! Hahahaha

Okay on to the photos.....I took some of these at the school science night (I was bored so I played with the camera) and the rest at home. Hope you like!

Science night

Too cool for grade school
