Serenity NOW!!

Do you ever visit a person's blog on a regular basis only to realize that they hardly ever update. It's a very frustrating feeling, I know because I feel that way everytime I look at my blog. I can't help but think, "What is wrong with that lady?!!" Then I remember, "Oh yeah, it's me!" I'm not really sure what my problem is, I only know that for a girl who likes to write and talk, I haven't been doing much of either lately. I think it must be all the time I've been taking for deep inner speculation. I figured it was time to delve into my subconscious and explore the deep waters that run within myself. Picture it now, there I am in my beautifully clean house, sitting yoga style taking advantage of the quiet serenity, as I picture myself as a beautiful butterfly ready to emerge from my cacoon. YEAH RIGHT!! As if I would have time, here's what's really been going on:
1 broken toe, 2 science projects, 3 fake sore throats, a remodeling project, a computer class, our 13th anniversary, a family reunion, RS enrichment groups & birthday dinner, a student of the month, lots of bills, a broken cell phone, and a partridge in a pear tree!! Ok maybe there wasn't really a partridge in a pear tree but there was dead baby chick in Noah's incubator that was his science project. So now it's time to elaborate a little, (not too much or that will take forever, I'm leaving out pictures too). Jessi (My step mom calls her "Grace") broke her big toe by dropping a chair onto it. She has to wear flip flops to school for 3 weeks while it heals. Sammi and Noah both had science projects due today. Sammi made 2 different kind of solar ovens to see which would work better, and even here in the AZ sun, neither one worked at all. Noah tried to hatch a chicken egg in an incubator. My brother Jason's father, has a bunch of animals including chickens and he set Noah up with an incubator and some eggs. After 3 weeks, one of the 3 eggs started to hatch, we watched as the little guy worked really hard to get out of the egg, after 2 days of trying, Kentucky (Mike named the chick affectionately after KFC) didn't make it. Noah was really disappointed, but I think he learned alot. Sammi, Noah, and Jessi took turns playing hooky from school with fake sore throats. Well, I think they really did hurt in the morning but they each made miraculous recoveries as soon as the bus pulled away. Mike and I are finally remodeling our family room. It is long overdue. When I say Mike and I, I really mean he does all the work and my input consists of saying "you missed a spot." I will post pictures when it is finally done. The only other thing that deserves more detail, is that Jessi got student of the month for Feb. This is a BIG deal for her. She usually gets in a little trouble at school at least once a month. So for her to make this was wonderful, Mike even made sure to take yesterday off for the assembly at school so we could see her get the award. Plus yesterday was our anniversary. We have been married for 13 years now. It sounds alot longer than it feels. Course it helps to have the best husband ever.
Well, I will stop for now and try to update more often so my entries won't be as long.
