Actually, it's 52% done.

Something very exciting happened a few days ago, which I neglected to announce: THE RLBT IS HALFWAY DONE! The Gutsy Dad comes home for his little vacation very soon, too. Life is good. Now, I just need to get the car detailed and clear a path to his side of the bedroom, and I'm all set!

The Best Easter Ever

Here's how Easter Sunday started.... a snow storm made the dogs wildly happy and Jillson's Easter dress wildly inappropriate. A breakfast casserole cooked away in my oven just in case the snow suddenly melted enough to make it possible to go to church. Executive decision: stay indoors and skip church, even though I am the only soprano in the little church choir.

But two hours later, we had a new plan. Surprise! Jillsie's BFF became a big sister, quite suddenly and safely. Congratulations, Duffys! Welcome to the world, Kerala Grace!

Slacker, I Know

Okay, people. I understand you want more pictures of Jillson and a few snide remarks from me regarding the lifestyle my husband's employer imposes upon me, but seriously. I AM QUITE HAPPY RIGHT NOW. It is very hard to complain when you are happy. Am I a teensy bit stressed and busy and trying to do too many things at once? Of course. But there's a light at the end of the tunnel. Very, very soon my husband will switch jobs and he will come home to visit me and Jillson for 18 days. YEE HAW. See? Can't complain.

For those of you who are just looking for pictures, please click on the link below to the right called "Jillsie's BFF." You will see pictures in a slideshow of Jillsie running around the church with her best friend while I practiced a solo I am going to be singing on Palm Sunday. Yes, those are indeed velveteen, animal-print, cuffed board shorts. Eat your heart out, fashionistas.
