Not a bad frazzled, but frazzled all the same. I remember reading that it's poetry month this month. I was thinking of this poem this morning:

My candle burns at both ends;
It will not last the night;
But ah, my foes, and oh, my friends
It gives a lovely light!

-Edna St. Vincent Millay

Yes, I know, absent love is implied and not over-taxed nerves but hey, it's Monday, you get what you get!

The weekend went very well. Crazy, busy, bustling but very well. Spring decided to take a break and let Winter have one last play but we managed to have the house done enough for people not to stand around outside with their teeth chattering. J had a fun birthday party and is still happily enjoying his gifts.

In fact, we slept here all weekend. The bunny found us here leaving many chocolate goodies, peeps and beans. Somehow, the bunny forgot to give me a chocolate bunny to chomp the head off of (stress relief, you know) and my children are very possessive of their chocolate bunny ears (learned all they know from me!) so I was bunny ear deprived this weekend. I'm thinking of hitting the grocery story for a 50% off bunny just so I can rip his ears from his chocolate-y head ;)

Today we are back to house progress. The traditional picket white fence gets a fresh coat of paint. And since neither Tom nor Huck are around to do it, it looks like that job falls to us. We're also still working up some presents for the birthday boy. Hard to surprise him. He's very observant and clever (traits that along with his chocolate bunny hoarding, I'm sure he gets from me).

But...the sun is shining and baseball season is in full tilt. Mets are doing well. 4-2 is nothing to hang your head about. C rocked at his scrimmage going 3-3 with 3RBIs and pitching a 27 pitch inning with no hits, 3 strikeouts and two walks. Our first real game is Tuesday night which is also J's b-day.

Just keep swimming, just keep swimming...

Happy happy Easter/Ostara/Passover/Spring/Chocolate Bunny Season since I have been lax on the postings! Hope it was a good one and the chocolate was plentiful.

Play ball!!
