Hoppy Easter!

Hoppy Easter!

Thank you for all of the wonderful birthday wishes and messages for the Little Prince...I know he will love reading them for years to come!  It means so much to me that so many of you took the time to leave him a birthday comment!

The winner of my Annie's Bunnies giveaway is....High Heeled Life!  Congratulations!  Dont worry about sending me your address...I know where you live!

It has been a crazy whirlwind for the last week or so....

- On Monday I had another run-in with the 'contractor' and the Suburban Prince was ready to fire him but I just want the basement done and over with!  On Tuesday he went down to the 'contractor's' house and tore a strip off him and made sure he understood a few hard truths.  He also told him I was the one who said not to fire him so maybe now he will watch his mouth and not bite the hand that feeds him!

- Since housekeeper decided to take Friday off (ummm how is it *I* didnt get the day off and in fact, my workload tripled?)  I have spent all week doing the housework myself and getting everything ready for our parents coming over today for lunch.  Since I hadnt had the living room cleaned since Christmas because of the renovation, it was a big job!  I had to clean every single surface!  All while wearing a tiara.  Hmpfh.

- On Friday night Hermes Scarf Friend and I went to see Water For Elephants.  I dont normally enjoy seeing movies made from books I love but I was very happy with this one.  The visuals are beautiful and it stayed very close to the book. 

- Yesterday we prepped all the food for today and last night we spent a few hours at the neighbours' house having a drink and nibblies and getting caught up now that they are home from winter in Florida.

This morning I am enjoying the peace and quiet before everyone wakes up and the chaos begins!  I have Billy Joel on my ipod and a fruit smoothie waiting for me.  I see the Easter Bunny has come to visit the Little Prince and I cant wait to see what he thinks!

We are doing the Little Prince's birthday celebrations today with cake and presents.  It's tough with his birthday being on Easter this year...I keep trying to separate the two events as I dont want him thinking he gets Easter eggs for his birthday every year!

I hope the Easter Bunny spoils you!

Have a hoppy day!

I just read "Water for Elephants" and was wondering how the movie would be.

Oh Princess,
My humble gloves now need a tiara to wear while cleaning .

I really depend on my cleaning lady and when she cannot come I am shattered.

Hope that you have recovered.

Happy birthday to your little prince, and I hope Easter was fantastic! :)

I love that comic. Very cute.

I hope you had a wonderful Easter/Birthday. I wish my son was three again. I miss those days so much.

We remodeled our basement a little over a year ago. While our contractors were fabulous, I've had some bad ones in the past. In fact, in our last home, the guy I hired never showed up. Or, he'd call and say he was on his way, then never come. You know what, I (me) finally fired him. I couldn't take it anymore. It can be so frustrating.

Hang in will be done before you know it!

Sorry about the cleaning lady. Love the tiara part. :)
