The pharmacy was shorthanded for spring break, so I volunteered to work today....9-1pm. The rest of the day was spent cleaning, grocery shopping and waiting for my guys to get home! I've missed them!

After spending another night outside, enduring another visit to the vet, more shots and a bath...Lily is VERY glad to be home and back at her perch. She seems to be feeling better. We will get the test results from the vet on Monday. He thinks it might be her thyroid.
This was a VERY BAD day.
I worked back up at the pharmacy today to help them out over spring break. When I got home after work, I opened the door to the worst smell EVER! My poor Lily had had diarrhea....
After 4 hours of scrubbing, 3 mop heads, a bazillion candles and several blisters...I finally got it all cleaned up and smelling better.
now I am pooped....pun intended.
No picture today
Alyssa left this morning to drive back to school...she was not feeling well, so I was pretty worried until she got home. But she made it fine!
My boys left after church today.
They are driving to Indiana to look at colleges for Jared. Jason decided to go along since he has several friends at the different colleges.
Soooo...I have the house to myself for a WEEK!!!

We went ATVing in the desert today.
See my last post for some more pictures.
We found a Gila Monster (pronounced "heela")
I have only see one other one in the wild in my life! It is very rare to see them and they have a deadly bite...so I think my brother and daughter are crazy in this picture!!!

I was sitting on my parents porch having my coffee and doing my quiet time when I heard a very strange noise. Turns out this hot air balloon was flying over my parents house....nearly landing on the house!!!! Unfortunately I didn't think to get my camera out till it made it down the street....crazy!!!
I had so much fun going to my niece's softball game tonight. And what a beautiful backdrop for the game!!! I miss those mountains so much!!!
Look to the sky!!! Christ must be returning!!
My mom is pumping her own gasoline!!!
This is the woman that would go out of her way and pay more to go to a self service station. when those went under, she would pay her grandchildren to go pump her gas for her!!!!
I seriously nearly fell out of the car.

The main point of the trip was that we were recording a CD at Ardent Studios.
This was SO COOL.
These kids recorded in the same room as BB King, ZZ Top, and many more famous artists.
This is our great group of kids!
If you are wondering why many are smiling, they didn't know I was taking the picture!!!
We left today on a band trip to Memphis.
I took a friend's flat stanley with me! Boy, did that Flat Stanley have fun! Here he is on Beale Street.
We ate dinner at the famous Huey's.
The kids had fun adding our name to the graffiti wall and shooting tooth picks into the ceiling. Oh and they also enjoyed the amazing burgers!!!

What a great surprise I got today!
I flew home and was so sad leaving my friends...
...but anxious to get home to my sick boy.
Waiting for me were two surprises...
a gorgeous, gorgeous prayer shawl I one from Skootsmom!!
I LOVE it!
and this awesome bracelet from my friend Tori!!
I love how when I went to take a picture of it, my other bracelet was laying with the word "always" on top.....always grace!
Two of my friends have left, so it is down to 3. We decided to bake today...well April did!!!
She made one loaf of white bread and one of cinnamon swirl
It was SO good!!!
Our friend Kathleen always makes us fried tacos...a favorite of mine and her childhood from Arizona. I have never made them but we couldn't go without....so I gave it a try. Not bad if I do say so myself!!!
Today is movie day and left overs!!We have spent the whole day watching movies, reading, eating....we did do Zumba this morning!!
This has been such a relaxing weekend!!!
And I still have 1 1/2 days!! whoop!
And I still have 1 1/2 days!! whoop!
I had one rough bump, while I am having fun, Jared is at home STILL sick....feeling like a pretty bad mom today...ugh.
my friends and I have been getting together for 17 years. We used to always have a tea with scones, sandwiches..the works. But we haven't done it in a few years. Not sure why, but it just got dropped. So this year, we decided to bring it back. I am so glad we did.
Robin, this is your biscotti recipe!!!
Then for dinner....I can't believe we were even hungry....we made a caprese salad and a bay scallop risotto. When I get home, I will post the risotto recipe on my recipe blog...you will want this recipe!
