I can't belive it's already April!!

It is so hard to believe that it is already April. We've been so busy lately that things just get pushed aside. I don't like that at all but sometimes it can't be helped.

DH got a new job. It starts out paying quite a bit less but I really hope he will like it. I started working again too. I work in the Mother's Day Out program when I am needed on Monday, Wednesday and Friday's. I will only do this while the kids are still in school. So, next month on the 19th is the kids last day of school. I won't even be able to work that day because of all the program things they will be doing at the school. I get to work with little kids and the baby gets to go with me and when Lo isn't at school on Fridays he can go with me.

I also started working at Dairy Queen in the evenings and weekends. I really like working there. Everyone seems to be nice. I stay busy so that helps pass the day/night along fast. You know I have a new found utmost respect for restaurant workers!! Those that do their job in making sure it's all done and the place stays clean. I have always, always made sure to not leave a big mess when we go out to eat. I think it's disrespectful to the person that has to clean it up. We do have a large family but that doesn't mean that gives us an excuse! Anyway, my point is when you go out to dinner......think of how you would feel cleaning up YOUR MESS! For that matter your children's mess. I've not had a really bad mess at work yet. I just know that some aren't as concerned about leaving a mess as others are. I think of the table that we are eating at as if it's our table. I wouldn't want it to look like it's not been cleaned in a week! I wouldn't want food all over the floor at home! Well, enough of that. I like the job and have much respect for others working in fast food. You do have to work constantly to keep the place clean. :0)

I'm trying to think of anything that may be new in our lives. Oh, our youngest twin got his new glasses. Oh, he just looks adorable!!! I love staring at him in those little camouflage glasses. They are a tan camo and just adorable!

For breakfast this morning I made the kids pancakes. They just love those. I hadn't made them in quite a while. I'll post the recipe for you in case you are interested in it.


1 cup milk
1 medium egg
1 TBSP oil
2 TBSP sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 cups flour

In a med. size bowl beat the egg, milk, oil and sugar well. Add in the salt, baking powder and the flour. Mix until the batter is smooth. Pour onto a hot skillet that you've added oil/butter/margarine to. When the little bubbles form and it starts to dry out on the top flip it. These make pretty thick pancakes. Very good. The kids loved them. I did double the recipe so that they could have 2 each. They were very large ones. I also mixed up the dry ingredients to have on hand for later for a quick fix.

Hope you try them and like them.

Well, I have work to do around here and need to get busy. So, I'm off to visit flylady!

Angie! I didn't know that you'd started working or that your husband got a new job. I hope it all works out well. We are staying reasonably busy, too, getting our house ready to sell (hopefully) and just everyday stuff. Take care, I hope to "see" you again soon :)
