Welcome to a day in my life. I can't guarantee that this will be an exciting read for anyone. My life is filled with all the mundane activities of a stay-at-home-mom just trying to raise her three sons to be the best men they can be.

Hey! Did anyone miss me?

I can't believe that it's been so long since I've posted an update. It seems that March just flew by and I barely had a chance to keep up with emails let along get on here.

So? What did I do in March instead of being here?
-We went to Florida for 10 days when the boys had their March Break. We got out just before the big storm hit. (we planned that perfectly!) We had a great time and I have some pics to share I will try and do that in the next few days.

-Cathy had a PJ crop at her house at the beginning of March. It was for the weekend. I was able to go from Friday night until Saturday night and I was quite successful. I got quite a bit done.

-the week after Florida was a complete blur. We were just so exhausted from the drive home. We drove straight through and it's always a much harder drive than the way down. I think my body was rebelling on me.

-we managed to pick up a pretty bad cold while we were in Florida. It started with John and he was nice enough to share it with Mom and I. Cameron wanted it, so we shared with him. Dad was showing some signs of it before we left, but I don't know if he actually came down with it.

-of course Easter was in there which is always a very busy weekend. Friday we had the services at Church and then we came home and spent the day together. Cameron and I had a lovely afternoon together going to see Horton Hears a Who. He was so much fun to spend time with. It's so nice to be able to relate to him on a more grown-up level and I really appreciate his sence of humor.

-on Saturday of the Easter Weekend Cathy, Don, Jenn, Kevin, James, Jason, and Alyson came over for the afternoon and dinner. We had such a great time together. Matthew was enjoying hanging out with all the adults and did so for most of the time they were here. It was a great day.

-Sunday of Easter was freezing cold. The band went out for the Sonrise Service, but we didn't last that long as everyone's valves were freezing up. After Church we came home and crashed. We ate chocolate all afternoon, and just hung out together. What more could you ask for?

-This past weekend I went to Syracuse, NY for the weekend with a group of girls to scrapbook and shop. I laughed so much. I will share more on that later ... and possibly share some pictures.

-I guess the biggest news of the month is that John has returned to the working world. He is doing some consulting work for a company in Toronto. He's still getting used to getting up and out the door early every morning, but he's enjoying the job and the people he's working with. It's a six-month contract and then he's got something else already lined up for when this contract finishes.

    Wow, lots going on in your life! I'm glad you're back blogging though. I missed you. :)

  2. Welcome back. It's great to get caught up with what's going on in the Clayton household.

  3. it's nice to share things. i'm quite offended that you didn't share your cold with me though.

  4. I didn't need you didn't need to share your cold with me. I caught one all by myself a few days before I went to San Diego. Fortunately, it was fast and furious; it was brutal while it lasted, but it passed quickly.

  5. When we did not have any blogs I had my spy give me a few reports. He also mentioned about grandson plahying in the band with his grandfther while in Florida.
