A post on a lighter note

I have a bunch of posts I need to take care of, but this isn't one of them. This is just a quicky so that there is something less heavy for my most recent post. I also need to get caught up on a ton of blogs. I hope it will be soon. My apologies for that.

For starters, Brad and I spent five (hellish) days with Brad's dad and his wife. It was nice to see Brad's dad - and we got a few blessed moments alone with him, but his wife is just plain mean. I will spare you the details, but suffice it to say she is lucky to still be breathing. Ok, one detail - even though she often mispronounced works (such as calling a petroglyph a "petralgraph") she enjoyed telling a story - with a derisive tone - about a Latino nursery worker who called an Oleander an "olander".

Today I spent two hours looking for some business maternity clothes for the forum. It turns out I should have ordered online. I was really getting discouraged, but after lowering my standards a bit, we got lucky at the store we started at. I am so relieved to get that over with.

Best of all the yearly Buttercup Patrol (Ender and me) struck gold on Sunday and found the first flowers of Spring! Yeah!!!

I have added pictures of my Buttercup Patrol Buddy (note the buttercup between his front feet) and the first buttercup of Spring 2008

Yay for the buttercup patrol. I always LOVE finding the first sign of spring whether it's my crocuses coming up or a buttercup in the woods. Sorry about the evil wife (stepmonster?). So is the snow gone yet??

At first, I thought, "it's radio, why does Kami need new business attire." Then I realized, altough I can only tune in via radio, you will have a live audience!!

Love the buttercup patrol!
