We had a great Easter. We went to my sisters. She said she counted and there were over 80 people there! I got to see a lot of family members that I hadn't seen since LAST Easter! I have pics and will try to get them posted here sometimes this week. There was so much food there yesterday. Everyone brought a dish or too. I took macaroni salad, seafood salad, deviled eggs and PMS brownies. We did a BIG egg hunt for the kids. They all had a blast. It was a wonderful day!
For dinner tonight I have a whole chicken in the oven baking, My house sure smells good now! I'll be making a side dish of some sort. I'm not sure what all I have in the pantry, a veggie and some biscuits.

My birthday was Monday. I had a nice day lazy day. ;) Keith was going to take me out to dinner, but I didn't feel like going out in the rain, so he and the boys fixed themselves sandwiches and noodles and I made myself a tuna sandwich. Keith bought me a birthday cake from my favorite bakery, Ukrop's http://www.ukrops.com/ which is really a locally owned grocery store and they make the best birthday cakes! :)
To save a little household money we decided to cancel our land line. We all have cell phones. We will still have our DSL through our land line company. Has anyone done away with their land line and gone to just having a cell? We hardly ever used the land line phone, I guess I got most of the calls on it and used it the most, but it was more out of habit then anything else.
Dinner here tonight was marinated boneless chicken breast, Amish noodles and corn. I should have fixed green beans so we had something green, but I was really wanting corn, so corn it was! lol I have cabbage here, but I just wasn't in the mood for it.

I had to run some errands today and decided not to go grocery shopping, I'll do that tomorrow.
I went to Walgreen's today and I paid with a $100.00 bill, when the cashier gave me my change back it wasn't enough change, I told her that I had paid with a $100.00 bill and she started arguing with me that I had paid with a $50.00 bill, I didn't even have a $50.00 bill in my wallet only $100.00's and $20.00's. She finally called the manager up there and the manager opened the drawer and there was my $100.00 bill on top of all the other big bills. She told the cashier to give me the correct change and as she walked away she was rolling her eyes at the cashier and shaking her head. If I hadn't been paying attention I would have never noticed that she didn't give me the correct change until I got home.
Keith wanted a hamburger and fries from fiveguys so that is what we had for dinner. I do love their fries!

I had Wesley and Carter here today, they were out of school for President's day. They didn't get here until after 12:00pm. They spend the night with their Dad and he is working nights and doesn't have to go into work early in the mornings like before. Tina hasn't picked them up yet, she has a flat tire and is waiting to get it changed.
Dinner tonight will be what I didn't make last night. Hamburgers, baked beans and fries. Keith and I took Matt to Sam's Club so he could look at TV's. He ended up buying a 37 inch Vizio flat screen. After we got home then I went to the grocery store, it was late when I got back so Keith said to save the hamburgers for tonight. I ended up cooking frozen pizzas for dinner last night.
Valentine's Day Keith took me out to dinner, we went to Cracker Barrel. We both had steak. It was surprisingly very good! I also had a salad, mac and cheese and hashbrown casserole. I LOVE that casserole! After dinner we went over to Sam's Club because Keith changed our membership to business and we had to get new pics and cards, then we walked around the store for a bit looking at stuff. We didn't buy anything.

It's a really cold day here today temps in the low 30's so I put on a big pot of chili for dinner. I'll serve crackers with it. I also made some homemade cinnamon buns for dessert. :)
I woke up this morning to a bunch of dirt tracked all through my house! I followed the trail and it lead me right into my son Eric's bedroom! Grrrrrrr I had to sweep it all up before Wesley got here. When Eric came home from work I asked him why he didn't get the dirt up, he claimed he didn't do it! So I took him into his bedroom and showed him the big pile of dirt that was laying on his floor! He said, "Oh yeah I guess it was me" *insert eye roll* He also said he didn't know he tracked it all through the house because it was dark in the house when he left for work this morning.

My son Matt have me new stuff for my bathroom. A shower curtain, the rings for the shower curtain, soap dish and tooth brush holder. He let me pick it all out, I picked out the butterfly pattern at Walmart. I haven't taken a pic of it all in my bathroom, but it all looks so pretty in there. My daughter Tina and her kids gave me bathroom towels, they were much needed. my daughter April baked lots of cookies and she gave me a container full of the, they were SO yummy! My sister gave me a Yankee candle with a cute bear. We had a great Christmas. My tree is still up, but its up as a protest. See my husband bought me two storm doors for the front and back door. He bought then Memorial day weekend. The doors are still in boxes in our garage! He was on vacation for two weeks during Christmas and he promised me that he would install my doors. He never did, they are STILL in the boxes in the garage, so the tree is staying until my doors get put up. :x Oh and he also promised he would fix my truck while he was on vacation, its STILL not fixed, the floor in the kitchen is STILL not finished. So the tree is staying up.
It's a cold day here so I put on a big pot of Cheese steak soup for dinner. I don't have any good crusty bread to go with it so I'll make some Bisquick drop biscuits.
