Easter's over & I still need a freakin' clone!

Easter was great this year!  Awesome weather, I attended 4 egg hunts (1 per child + church) & hosted one.  Can you imagine how many plastic eggs I have at my house?  Including the ones from previous years, they fill up a tall kitchen garbage bag.  I decorate with them, fill empty baskets around the house, I've even made 2 wreaths out of them!

Sassy only had a few meltdowns over her outfit.  Doesn't everyone hunt eggs in a short skirt & wedge heels?  And Baby Girl hair was a hot mess, as usual.
 That's me, one Xanax & 2 Easter Sunrises* in.

I think we had the biggest turnout yet.  I think I see 51 children plus a few babies that didn't make the picture. Did you notice Bo climbing over the rail? Look beside the flag.  That's my BOY.
 Easter morning, Sass had another meltdown about her hair.  Imagine.  I curled Baby Girl's hair & still...hot mess.
 The whole family at church.  This dress makes my boobs sag, but my waist skinny (although you can't tell in this picture) so there's that & Retro said he wasn't coming (we go every Sunday, he doesn't) then he showed up.  He knows what side his bread's buttered on.
 Oh yeah.  And the Easter Bunny came.
Now this week's even busier!

Tonight we have ball practice for the littles; same time, different towns. Imagine.  Tomorrow church & dance.  Now it gets tricky, Thursday is dress rehearsal for Sass & Bo's play (I help, BG can't go).  So it's straight from school to eat supper, to the church for hair & makeup.  We have ball practice, but we're skipping, even BG because that way too much hassle.  Then I have Bunko.  Friday is our Relay for Life, I'm on a team plus one of the Bunko Babes is in charge of the whole thing.  (And y'all thought I was crazy.)  Saturday, we have ball pictures at 12:30 & 1:30 & the play starts at 4.  Wonder how that's going to work out, plus I haven't bought their pants or socks yet.  And BG is wearing Keds not cleats. Sunday-play, but I have to juggle Baby Girl who I don't think will be down with watching the play twice. 

Did I mention Bo has a report due on Monday about Meerkats?  Remember how my laptop is rigged to my desktop monitor?  Printer won't hook up.  Our dryer died Wednesday & we immediately got a new one.  It's going on a month since my computer got struck by lightening.  Can anyone guess what Retro thinks is more important? 

Then next week is spring pictures for Bo & Sass, field trip to the Atlanta Zoo for Bo & Playschool graduation for Baby Girl (thankfully not on the same day, but it wouldn't have surprised me if it was). And ball games start.  Throw it my momma's birthday, Mother's Day & our 13th anniversary & I'm pretty booked.

I just have to remember how blessed I am to have 3 healthy children that are able to keep my life so crazy busy!

You might not hear from me again till mid-May...

*recipe for that & my Real Housewives macaroons to follow (one day)
