Are you totally feeling the time change or what?! Ya I am. Totally. Had the hardest time getting up today.
But I did.
And my Monday started out with me copying my to-do list from my email (that I emailed myself at 11:30pm because I couldn’t sleep) into my planner. My list took up the whole page. Baby’s here in 5 weeks…maybe sooner, I’ve got a long list y’all.
I told the kids school was postponed til 10am. They did not object. (#notsurprised) I made yogurt parfaits for breakfast and got to work. I had so much computery stuff to do: orders to make, registration stuff, balancing checkbook……
I love school.
It took a long time today though.
We’re doing a little unit on St. Patrick’s day, so naturally that takes lots of reading, glue, and measuring each other to see how we’d measure up against a leprechaun…
It could have taken longer because there was a lot of dancing going on to our Celtic music in the background….

We ordered caterpillars to raise into butterflies. They came a couple weeks ago and they have all changed into their pupal state! So exciting!! But they are kinda gross. I’m so glad they’re all in their neat little cocoons now…so much nicer…and neater.

We had to carefully move them into their tent to be reborn. It’s nerve wracking holding five little delicate lives in your hands, but they survived the move into their tent. We look forward to seeing them in about a week!
Then!! Then we got the sweetest package in the mail…completely gorgeous art pieces from my artsy South Dakota friend. Don’t you just love them?? I do.
Also? I’m back on the coupon train! I was walking through Target yesterday with my Banker smelling men’s body wash and it was like the couponing fairy waved her hypnotic wand over me…once again. I used to be SO good at couponing. Not to brag, but…good. Like, “pardon me while I get $45 dollars reduced from my Target bill right about NOW!”
So it happened again while I was smelling men’s body wash, noticing all the Dove Men’s stuff was on sale and if you bought 4 you got a $5 gift card AND I knew I’d seen a coupon out there somewhere. With the help of my Banker, I quickly computed that WITH the $1 off coupon and WITH the $5 gift card, I could get four of these body washes for about $1.25 each….holla!!!
So I came home and printed coupons til my printer flipped me off.
I fell off the wagon so hard I don’t even know where my coupon organizer is anymore. So while at Target I got this handy dandy girl in the $$ section. My boys were in solitary confinement for most of the day yesterday, so they were allowed out on work release to cut coupons…holla again!! Then I organized my little money makers in my new organizer.
And then I kissed it.
I’ll let you know how I do…I know there’s some non-couponers that totally don’t get my bliss here. But I know there’s plenty of you that totally want to high five me right now. You can. (*slap*)
Well, my hour before I had to start dinner is ending. (boo) I just drank a cup of reheated coffee and ate two Carmel DeLights. The kids were quietly watching 101 Dalmatians (the Glenn Close version…love that movie), but now it’s over and they’re doing a science experiment that “makes a really big mess and glows in the dark” in my bathroom. Mercy.
I’m going to make THIS
for dinner and then I’m going to bed at 7pm.
Happy Monday, folks.
PS: Have you broken in your Easter shoes yet? Ya, we did that today too. Just a friendly reminder from
