I'm so glad we didn't have any plans for Spring Break. I was/am wiped out! I still ended up being busier than I would have liked to be but it was mostly down time which was SO nice! I am loving my new washer and dryer. The weather was cold and terrible most of the week. We stayed home as much as possible and did some indoor activities. It reminded me of a year ago when the schools closed and everything was shut down. We mostly hunkered down this last week. We did some baking, sewing, and dog sitting. Corbin had to do 4 hours of community service for his health class so he and I went and collected garbage for 4 hours. Scott has been doing some gardening. He is replacing some of his fruit trees and trying to start some seeds indoors. We will see how it goes. I have work figured out enough for Monday and Tuesday so I'm feeling good about that. Ha.
Since the Adams' Family got Covid they had to cancel their plans canceling our plans to dog sit. My kids were so sad that we thought of a solution that would help them get a dog fix. We got to watch our friend Jake's dog Evie. She is his baby and boy is she ever! She latched onto me almost immediately and hardly wanted anything to do with the kids. That was not the plan! So I have spent days holding a dog and even sleeping with her if you can believe it! She is a sweet dog but she is needy! She still has been cute and fun for the kids but I wish she would have latched on to one of them! I don't mind holding her when I'm just sitting and working on the computer or watching TV but other times forget about it! Wow, that's a lot of exclamation points!
|Ryan was helping me make chocolate lava cakes. I don't ever want him to grow up! He's so cute and sweet. The last time I made those cakes was a year ago after the earthquake. Weird times!|

|These mint truffles did not look good but they sure tasted good!|

|It's pretty funny to watch Corbin play on his VR Headset.|
|Ryan wanted to sew too. I helped him make a little star plushy.|

|We've been wanting to give the girls middle names for a few years now but we finally actually started the process. We had to fill out so much paperwork!|
