FIRST DAY OF SPRING BREAK

...and my husband is off of work too. which means I can't keep checking my comments on the BLOG. Even though he doesn't say anything I am more aware of how often I sit in front of the computer with him home. He's riding the bike right now and before he started I was sitting here reading everyones BLOGS so my goal is to get something typed and posted before he comes back down....I don't want him to think that this is all I do when he is at work. :)

As my title would have you know, it is the first day of spring break for 3 of my children, my high schooler doesn't have it until Easter break. He does however have a half day today, and with my husband home you would think we could enjoy the lovely outdoors...



or maybe not. Growing up in Texas my body is telling me that I should have a short sleeve shirt on right now, that my skin is craving the warmth of the sun, that I need to paint my toenails so I can wear my new flip flops. But as I sit here in the midwest with snow on the ground and in the trees, I realize that I have a few more weeks to lose weight, shave my legs, pick out a new color for my toes and clean off the deck. but it's SPRING break. and everyone is home.

Tomorrow is my hubby's 41 birthday. He always opts for his gift to be me not spending any money on him. I usually do anyway. But this year I think I will give him something he always asks for.

uh oh the bike sound upstairs just stopped ----I missed my deadline....I must type fast.....

His mom makes him this very complicated pie for his b-day- He does't eat cake EVER- there is a great story behind that but I haven't the time. Anyway Ever since we moved away from our hometown in Texas he asks me to make it-I have the recipe but have NEVER made it. I have always told him that this is something special that his mom makes for him and I don't want to take that away from her...

YIKES I hear his footsteps he's coming downstairs.....

Well then one year, he has a cousin Concetta that made it for him and it was very special, He really enjoyed that gift. But that was also many many years ago - I think 7 years ago.
So this is it - I am finally going to do it. I figure I will have the two older boys ask him to go work out with them and that is when I will bake. and pray that it is as close to his mom's as I can.

Okay he just announced from the kitchen that he and my daughter are going to make breakfast for everyone. I feeling BLOG guilt...oh no now he is getting things going in the crock pot for dinner. I gotta go people......what kind of wife am I ....
I may have to start setting the alarm to do this early this week while everyones sleeping. I feel worse because he is totally fine with me sitting here BLOGGING to all of you while he and my daughter are cooking.

Check back tomorrow I may post a picture of the famous PIE-
oh and FYI my hubby does not read my BLOG so I don't have to worry about blowing his gift.

Yeah, my husband "wants me to" for his birthday and when my birthday rolls around he wants to give himself to me. I always have to remind him. "its not your birthday, its mine!" "Thats what you want!"
