We walked every evening last week until Friday. I voted that Friday was recess day. So on recess day we eat cake too. I baked a caramel cake...yum. The only problem with that is that today is Monday and recess day has passed and there is still half of a cake in my kitchen. I will not rest until that pan is empty! And you know how it gets empty....everytime I walk through the kitchen I just take a bite....all day. Lets see how many hours of walking will be required to get all that off?? Maybe I should throw it out....HAHA not going to happen.
Saturday Brant and I went to the Kirk Cameron marriage conference. We loved it. He in just too funny, then he can be so serious. Said alot of things we already knew....but forget to practice sometimes. We went with a group from another church and had a blast with them. So all in all, it was a good week last week,and a great weekend. I think the weather being so nice helps with all that too. I am looking forward to this week and seeing what it holds. If I remember I will post a picture of the room before painting and after. But that is IF I remember...we know how my memory is.

So the allergies never let up on Friday. So guess who got my ticket? That's right...LexyLane! She had a blast. I guess it isn't so bad, I got to enjoy her for a few days at the beach and he got her for a game. She was the center of our world when we just had her to ourselves. That is always nice. She loved the game. Her school chorus will be singing at the Rome Braves game in a few weeks, so she is really pumped about that, after the Atlanta Braves.
We had a nice Easter around here. The only downside was that Jacey had to work. She gets to go to church with us on Sunday, just leave a little early to make it to work on time. I am still thankful that she has a job. I just hope that the value of a dollar registers with her soon. But that is wishful thinking I am sure. I have no idea how Mallory has been so frugal. Jacey is just like me. If we have 5 dollars to our name we will try our best to spend 8. Mallory if she has 5 dollars she will hold onto it until she has like 25 and can afford to let go of 5. But back to Easter....we had lunch at Brant's moms. Then the little ones did an egg hunt. I ask LexyLane before we went if she would be hunting eggs. No, mom...of course she did hunt eggs...but I am betting this is the last year for that. Sad how time flies. After all that Brant, Mallory, Justin and me went riding in the jeep. It couldn't have been a more perfect day in GA!
I now have no kiddos to keep. Wow how things change in the matter of a few months. So the question is....do I get a job outside of the house? Or do I pinch pennies here and wait for Jacey's baby to get here and just keep it and whoever else calls between now and then? Funny how when things are running smoothly it can change in the blink of an eye. All that is just a story that would feel like reading a novel if I went into all of it. Just know that I miss all of my little kiddos and am not a big fan of whoever thought they needed to get into my and others in towns business. I mean really, do we all not have enough going on in our own households! I will stay out of your business....STAY OUT OF MINE!!! Any way now that I have vented.
Now that I am here alone I have TOO much time on my hands. Today I am going to paint the playroom, and make it a den. I will probably have pictures to bore you with.
Oh and I think this week officially marks the start of walking regularly again. Just to work into a jog faster than last year. I can get so aggrivated with myself for taking such a long break 4 months. In 4 months your body can really betray you! The jeans aren't working quiet as well as they were 4 months ago. But that is going to change....I am sure of it....I think??
