Actually it's more than that. I'm back from vacation and as soon as I got back, I started a new job. And about a week after that, I started school again full time. I've never been more tired in my life!! Things are going well though. I love my job and I'm doing well in school. I will try not to stay gone too long, I owe everyone pictures!

And we're off to Disneyworld nice and early tomorrow morning!! I can't wait, we'll be staying there for the whole week! The day after we get back, I start my new job so I will try to update ASAP but I apologize if I get crazy busy and don't get a chance.

Ok so I'm totally copying a couple other blogs I read but I think this is such a great topic that I will follow suit. I had to think long and hard about things I'm grateful for. I mean, the obvious are family, kids, Clinton and all that. What's interesting in that though? I mean, you all know I am thankful for that. So I want to tell you something I am thankful for that you might not know. I am thankful for Pep Boys. The reason why? We bought four new tires from them near the end of February. They had a buy 3 get 1 free deal where they mail you a rebate check for the cost of the 4th. Not only were they the best deal in town anyway, but we got our rebate check last week. I was skeptical at first but yeah, I'll be shopping there again!

I forgot to post the Easter pics so here they are! Yes, I know I am mean for making them both wear the bunny ears but how many more years can I get them to do it? I did save them, we will do it again next year. They got a bit of candy in their baskets but most of it vanished before they got to eat it. Wonder where it went? Ha ha ha!
Watching Gabriel grow up is really fun and rewarding. Often it is hilarious too. He has a crazy sense of humor and when it is accidental is when he is the funniest. To the left is what he does when I tell him to make a funny face by the way. He doesn't always look that weird.
Gorilla or girnona = granola. He does love his granola bars!

So Kerry is in town for a conference so we met up for brunch today at Luke. Here's the link http://www.lukeneworleans.com/
We had an excellent time and I enjoyed every minute of our visit with Kerry. Thankfully the boys were very well behaved, Gabriel especially and that is rare. He is in love with Kerry! When it was time for her to go, he gave her hugs and kisses and told her "No Kerry! Don't leave me! Don't go!" It's safe to say she has a way with kids!
I saved the pictures of the French Quarter for their own post. It is really an amazing place down there and totally unlike the rest of the city. I just wanted to share a couple pictures of the street performers that we saw that I thought were really neat. First picture, I have no idea on Earth how this guy manages to balance on the ladder and not move. I mean, he does not move at all. I couldn't even see him breath! The second pic is a man completely painted in silver! He stands on a platform and looks like a real metal statue. Only as we were walking by, he made these really weird clicking sounds to get our attention. He never said a word but he set this picture up of Brian being held up by the silver statue and Zack, Kevin and Brian's family friend. It really was neat and made for a great picture!

Tell me what you think...
Should I leave the Mardi Gras diamond background or do you think it would be easier to read if I had a plain black background? Or do you have a better idea? I love the header on it, I don't want to change that. Leave your opinion in comments please!
Although I have never voted for the worst, I have always found this website amusing. Why is it that a lot of past American Idol contestants who didn't like VFTW are now advertising there? Odd! Anyway, check them out for a bit of amusement! www.votefortheworst.com

Many of you already know that I have started working from home. I get so many questions about it that I figure I better do some blogging about it. Hands down, my favorite position right now is for ACD Direct. www.acddirect.com
My job there is to take pledge calls for PBS, National Public Radio and St. Jude. I love it! If you are intereted in working from home, I would recommend applying there ASAP. As far as I know, they will not be conducting interviews again until the pledge drive is over in April. However, I would apply anyway. It's a lot of fun!

After seeing excerpts of his books, who really could think he didn't do it? Some people have a lot of nerve and he is no exception. Thank goodness he doesn't receive the proceeds for this book!

Of course, when I read her proposal, it made me smile. I can't wait to see her supporters as they put down their "Vote for Hillary" signs and run screaming in the name of democracy and free will.

This is one of the best books I've ever read. It took me a day and a half to sit and read the whole thing. Seriously, I was reading when the boys went to bed the night before last. Then during their nap yesterday and I even read while they played in the living room. I know this sounds cliche' but I laughed and I cried and I got angry. It takes a LOT in a book for me to go through all that. Jennifer Weiner is now my favorite author, I can't get enough of her books! There is only one left to read and I'm ordering it now. I also learned that she has a blog, right here on blogspot. http://jenniferweiner.blogspot.com/ She calls it "Snarkspot" which is another reason that I love her. I just wish you could comment on her page so I could tell her how wonderful she is!

There is so much work still to be done. I took some pictures of our neighborhood from the car the other day. Now keep in mind, this is one of the "decent" neighborhoods. Look at all the work that needs to be done! Some houses are fixed, some aren't and some just need to be torn down and rebuilt. It's aweful! I really hope this city can get it together soon. I sent Clinton out with the camera today to take some pictures of the 9th ward. When he gets them, I'll post them too.
And this is a house on the same street that desperately needs to be fixed. The rest are all houses in the same area. Just proof that some are done, some are not.
