Where is the time going?????

Wow....Thursday already! I missed my Monday menu planning post, missed my Wordless Wednesday post-thought of putting it up today but decided against it!  There's always next Wednesday :)  My days are flying and its leaving me little time to do all of my online stuff & tv time :(

I finally started working about 2 months ago, so this, obviously, takes up most of my day.  My mornings haven't changed much-still out of the house by 6:30am, take my son to school first, then my daughter except that now I continue to work instead of going home.  Hubby was picking up both kids from school, but since baseball season has begun and my son made the high school baseball team, he only picks up our daughter.  Our son now practices every day so he has to stay in school until 5-5:30.  So, I leave work between 5 & 5:30, head up to his school then head home.  By the time we get home its 7!! So depressing.  I only have time to eat, maybe jog on the treadmill, shower & go to bed!  Its awful!! No choice though, the bills have to get paid!!!

So yes-I am super excited that my son made the HS team(you can read about it here)--YAY!! He finally got his jersey and he got now I really can't wait until the games begin.  He's also playing for The Rakers travel team, altough I'd be lying if I didn't say I wasn't worried about conflicts and no time!  I think I have no time now, oh boy--I'll be dying by next month.  Anywho - he will be playing in his first tournament of the season with The Rakers this weekend!! I am excited to see him out on the field again....its way better than seeing him lose brain cells while playing Xbox-LOL!  Hopefully I'll remember to take pictures - if I do I'll post them next week!
My daughter is busy too.  For the first time since she's been attending her dance academy she's going to have a Spring Dance show!! She is so happy about this and the competitions.  I have no idea how all this will fall into place, but I know it always does!!

How are you all welcoming Spring?  Busy with kids' activities too?

Taking a Detour!!!!

So we are up & out of my dad's house by 7am.  It was hard and I tried to leave quickly, my poor baby girl even cried-I felt soooo bad for her.  Usually I'm the only one crying, but she really didn't want to leave :(  So,  we said goodbye-hope to be back soon (permanently) and we drove off!
About an hour out, we stopped for breakfast and had to practically make a run for it, LOL! There were like 20 buses full of kids!! By the time we got inside, the Dunkin Doughnuts line was like a mile long-ugh, there goes my coffee!  So we had no other choice but to eat burgers at Wendy's, everything else had super long lines that we didn't want to wait on!
We grabbed our burgers and left.  A little while later Laz asks me if I want to stop at Clearwater Aquarium.  At this point, I'm not 100% sure-I was sad about leaving & felt like just being home to calculate & come up with good, concrete reasons to move to Florida.  On the other hand, I really wasn't looking…

Weekend Trip to Niagara Falls, Canada~Part 2

Here is our 2nd day in Niagara Falls.  We started our morning with breakfast in the hotel restaurant.  After breakfast we headed over to Marineland.  This park was nothing spectacular, but it was a nice little trip.  We saw a dolphin show, saw several other animals, killer whales, fed Beluga whales and rode 1 or 2 rides.  Again, nothing spectacular but it was fun.  A lot of walking, and our favorite part was feeding the beluga whales - they were so cute!
The dolphin show was also fun!  Its been a long time since we've seen dolphins in action.

After all the walking, we were run down and hungry.  We headed back to the hotel to shower and prepare for our dinner at Massimmo's Italian restaurant.  The view was beautiful!  I enjoyed dinner, but hubby and baby girl didn't.  I like to try new things and unfortunately the other 2 don't - and there wasn't much on the menu that they liked.  Baby girl had Ceasar Salad, hubby had Minestrone soup and I had Linguine Carbonara.

Cooking Corner: Cookbook Challenge Day 1

Hi everyone!  I'm starting April with a little challenge for myself.  You are all welcome to join if you choose.  I have a rather large collection of recipes that I've never tried and since I started to declutter my life of things I don't need, this is one area that needs help. What do I need so many cookbooks and binders of recipes for? I don't know - it just takes up space and it's another thing for me to clean.  So, I decided that if I can't find good recipes that we love, there is no point in keeping the book or recipe.  I attempted this challenge a few years ago but never followed through.  This time, I intend to stick with it.
Here's my challenge:
Pick a book a month and try some recipes.
Decide what we like and what we don't.
If I have at least 15 recipes that we like, the book stays.  If not, I'll just copy the few recipes we liked and get rid of the book.
Not sure what I'll do with the book yet.  I'll figure it out at the end of th…
