It's 63 outside baby!!!

And the kids are playing OUTSIDE!!! YESSSSS! I love days like this. I even saw a hummingbird at the feeder. I knew he was out there because he gives me all kinds of fly-bys and warnings from the trees when I'm outside. I fixed him some nectar (to make nice) and put the feeder on the fence outside my kitchen window. Bless his tough little hummingbird heart. I think I'm going to have to get some fresh thistle seed for the Goldfinches, they aren't touching the what I put out last week.
Maren has finally decided to walk. She started furniture walking the day after my Mom got here. She loves her new-found freedom and wants to walk all the time now. It's murder on the back though... good thing I have a good chriropractor lined up.
I think I had mentioned Declan started karate. I've been taking him 2-3 times a week. He's getting pretty good, and will earn his 'white belt' tonight. This is big deal time around here. I'm just hoping that the good lessons like listening and focusing will convey while at home too.....
My Mom went home on Tuesday =( and I've been trying to get back into the swing of things solo. With weather like this I should be taking the dogs for walks and the kids to the park. Everyday. I think I have "pissoneveryonesparade' syndrome, though. I start dissecting each little part of walking the dogs down to the point that I don't want them to go (pooping, picking up poop, carrying the poop type thoughts). Then the kids at the park is not a relaxing, sitting looking at my magazine type thing either. Usually one of them poops, or needs to poop too. Maybe I have 'uptomyelbowsinpoop' syndrome really. So we stay home. Or we occassionally entertain others at Target.
My girlfriends and I are planning our first annual scrapbooking retreat at a house in Lake Tahoe this March. We discussed the details at scrapbook night this past Saturday. I'm looking *so* forward to going. I think I'm going to start planning my pages now so I don't have to bring absolutely everything. It's fun to just sit and basically assemble the pages once I get up there. Plus, with all the chatting that we do, I can't be responsible for putting everything together from scratch. Plus, I think we are bringing wine. =)
Alright, I'd better go see why the kids have suddenly gotten so quiet....

Your scrapbooking trip sounds like a blast! I still have poop issues too . . . only it's the opposite. Mine don't like to poop and they hold it in until explosive things happen. So bizarre. So I'm feeling for ya chica!
