[ It's the last day to enter the HEB $25 Gift Card Giveaway!]
Is it weird that I'm 36 and I'm making a Birthday Wish List?
Don't tell me.
I don't want to know.
I just figure since my birthday and Mother's Day are coming up, that maybe somebody might want to give me something I ACTUALLY WANT.
And the items might be a little pricey.
So they might want to save up. A little.
This is what I have so far.

Finally. I'm starting to work on my garden. In my garden. Around my garden.
But. . . .
Geez Louise. I'm late.
Last year, all my plants were in the ground by April 4th.
Oh. Woe is me.
But then I looked again, and in 2010, I didn't get around to it until April 16th. Guess what today is? Yeah buddy. April 17th. I'm right on time for being behind.
What a relief.
It was stressing me out a bit. I kept telling myself, gardening is a hobby. Don't stress crazy cakes. Just plant and be happy. It's as simple as that.
So I did.
I planted hanging baskets.

Can somebody please tell me why my eldest refuses to smile? I mean really smile . . . . like she is the happiest person in the world because the Easter Bunny just hopped on by and brought her goo gobs of stuff.
Well stuff like cool erasers and pens.
And stuff like awesome candy that Mom and Dad would never buy.
And stuff like fun games to play when she's bored.
Not stuff like her friend Rache got.
Not stuff like Vera Bradley backpacks.
No stuff like Tom's over priced ugly shoes that she would have loved.
Just ordinary stuff.
Like normal people get on Easter.
Instead, I get this pathetic excuse for a smile.
She looks like she's having stomach pains.
Maybe shin splints.
