[think "Seinfeld" with the title]

Well, I've had a few promptings from some...folks [Megan, Laura, my brother Chris and my dear husband...just to name a few] that I'm not blogging quickly enough after my break - well, HA. Here it is: my first post - post-Lent!!

You're going to feel awfully guilty about making me blog this late at night. And if you don' should. It's almost 12:30am. My children's teacher is going to be not so chipper in the morning!

So much happened during Lent. So I'll begin with the beginning...literally.

Paul and I went to Adoration at 12am Tuesday night [really Ash Wednesday - following?] and when we got home Paul yells to me [i was in the bathroom] that the cat, Pepi, had gotten the hamsters. Such is the life in our house. Can we have a smooth running household!?? The lid was off their cage and they were not in there. Pepi was seen fleeing from the room...that's what prompted Paul to check on them in the first place. So how did our Lent start? Not with ashes on the forehead. Staying up for another hour searching for 2 little mice...I mean hamsters [this is when i wish i knew how to do that strikeout thing on the words!!]. I'm so glad that the guy who has the hour after us showed up [sarcasm] - wouldn't want to have to stay for another hour :O)
And yes, we found one of 'em - behind the piano. The other one - the instigator - I found the next night in the laundry room trash bin! He was so cute! [i was just estatic that i didn't have dead animals in my house...oh, yeah...and that i wouldnt have to tell my dear daughters that their things were dead!]

We had to separate the 2 hamsters. They were just fighting so much. The "Instigator" had his face bitten open by the "Aggressor". So they are now side by side in their own cages. Phew!

Another YAY moment: Charlie started walking!! The first week of Lent and he was off!! He's really good now. He's also starting to get vocal. Like when Joseph takes something from him - he'll scream now. And 'round and 'round it goes... :::sigh:::

Joseph turned 3 and he's now in PottyTraining1o1. Not the most stellar student, but he'll come around. I'm thinking of hiring a tutor. [Can't say as I've ever had a child poop on the floor before. But if anyone of 'em was destined's him]

My dear brother Chris got married on March 8th - in Houston. Nina was such a beautiful bride and Chris was beaming! We had such a wonderful time and are so glad we got to share that blessed day with them.

I know that there are more updates, but it's really late and I've got to get to sleep.

I hope you all had a Blessed Easter and Divine Mercy Sunday.
