Happy Easter everybody! The winter of 2011-12 has been hanging onto the Pacific Northwest like a stalker ex-boyfriend. We had snow, ice and frost in March, well after the first day of Spring. This morning, the sun came out and warmed things to the tune of 60 degrees!! Maybe we’ll be able to venture out and enjoy more of the mountains and even the coast this Summer. The kids and I had a pretty good time during most of the break and I got things done and cleaned. Not nearly as much as I wanted, but way more than last year, and that’s saying something because last year I had the carpets steamed before my mother’s visit. Good times, good times.
