2. It’s been a weird week. I’ve been crazy busy at work and I feel like I’ve barely seen my kids! In fact, L got spend her birthday as an only child (Surprisingly, I don’t think she was a fan).
B spent 2 nights with my dad and on Wednesday went to a Spring Training Baseball games(Nationals vs. Braves).
They sat by the bull pin and one of the pitching coaches for the Nationals gave him a ball. He was psyched!
They weren’t really rooting for anyone (born and raise Red Sox fan right here!) but the Nationals won. B also got to witness his first foul ball incident – the ball bounced off something and hit a teenager in the nose (breaking his nose). Apparently it was not pretty. Dan actually caught the ball after it hit the kid. Don’t worry, he gave the ball to the kid.
3. Last night both kids spent the night with my mother-in-law and Dan and I went on a REAL DATE.
It was impromptu, but we went to Seito in Baldwin Park. There was a massive amount of sushi involved. (FYI – My favorite roll in the world is at Seito — the Torchamaki: Spicy crawfish, asparagus, cajun mayo, wrapped in whitefish and set ablaze with a torch…drool.). Ahhh – so good. For the record, I did eat ONE spicy tuna roll… everything else was cooked. We ordered WAAAAY too much as you can see from the picture (but it was an awesome lunch today!).
It was sooooo bizarre getting up for work today without having to worry about the kids. I’m pretty sure we were both up and out of the house in under 45 minutes. I got to work at 8:15!!!
4. My yard has mulch!!
Yes, it still needs a few more bags…
Do you know the last time my yard had mulch? Umm… neither do I, it’s been that long. And I’m NOT 100% sure why we didn’t mulch it sooner.
Here’s the thing — my HOA covers lawn care (THANK GOD) and they used to mulch our yard once a year. Then the neighborhood switched from the builders running the HOA to the homeowners running the HOA (as it should be). When this happened things went a little nuts. They added speed bumps. They made new rules and they added a gate guard. They still pay for lawn care – but the the mulch is out. Truthfully, I think they would rather just give us mulch. We’re lazy like that.
5. I was going to save these links for tomorrow’s post but they are just too good not to share now.
First up is Kara’s post on Twitter etiquette Please read this if you are on Twitter. I know I’m guilty of doing some of these things, but I understand her rage.
Second is Lindsey’s post on blogging. Even if you aren’t a blogger, you might appreciate it because she (nicely) points out a lot what I see happening in the blog world. I love reading blogs, but when you go from being personal and sharing your life to constantly doing giveaways and sponsored posts I just want to delete you from my reader. Plus it’s a great reminder for us bloggers to be ourselves.
And with that… I’m out. I have a very uneventful Easter weekend ahead of me. Minus a trip to the gym, we have zero activities planned (everything was cancelled due to Spring Break/Easter). Maybe I’ll even relax a little? Yeah right.
