Equinox, couldn't tell by the temperature the past couple of days that Spring is just around the corner. It is, isn't it? Just around the corner? I might have to go find it and DRAG IT BODILY HERE. Regardless, walking in the crisp air is invigorating and each time I go the faster I get. The past few days have got me to the point of realizing that my hard work is beginning to pay off: feeling that my pants are getting baggy, putting on an outfit for work the other day only to realize that the shirt was TOO BIG and having to change, being able to walk up the 8 flights up stairs at work without getting out of breath (as long as I'm not talking at the same time :)

I have SO MUCH TO DO in the next week and a half. So much that I feel like lying down with a wet cloth on my forehead. So much that I keep having to work it out by typing IN ALL CAPS WITH LOTS OF EXCLAMATION POINTS!!!! To! Emphasize! How Much! I HAVE! TO DO!!!

I feel better now.


I have a doctor's appointment and a dentist appointment and a hair appointment and a birthday party and a children's concert and a sushi night and a hockey game and book group and choir and WW and the AWC meeting and finalizing the AWC site and the last of the translation project and a dinner out and the shopping of things to take with us: presents and Easter schtuff mostly. My sister has requested 42 kajillion Kinder Eggs. I have to take my laptop to work and download every possible file I might possibly ever need while working in Boston for 2 weeks. Laundry and sorting and PACKING, oh my.

Mom, Sarah, Kathey, Russell, E11en, BP: any particular goodies you'd like from Sweden??

Heh. Every time, after they get a haircut, the hairdresser colors up their hair for them. This one was exceptional! We're going to re-create it for the AWC 4th of July party this year :)

That's a fun idea. Sure beat the lollypop that we used to get at the bank when I was a kid (though that excited me too).

As always, your kids are adorable. I'd stop feeding them now so that they will stay little.

I squish them regularly, but it doesn't seem to help.


Oh my gosh! Their hair is grayer than their Grandma's! HAHAHA. Also reminds me of their Great Grandma exclaiming that she was too young to have a daughter with so much gray hair. :)
OK- I have a request- some dark chocolate marzipan, Please! Actually, you are bringing the best stuff....the kids! Love, Lizardmom

I know you mean YOUR kid, right? I'M the best stuff! or? you mean just the grandkids. *sigh* What am I, chopped liver? hahahahaha!!

(Anonymous) KNOW you'll always be a kid to me! So you were included! :)
Love, Lizardmom

The weather forecast promises another heatwave coming in the weekend. In some places it may be up to +15 C. We'll see how accurate that forecast is. This week I've had to clear freeze from the car windows several days in a row.

And WOOHOO! on the exercise paying off! I've been a slacker recently on my walking regime. You have inspired me to get back to it. Today.


a cold washcloth for my head and a floor to lie down on-- both of those sound tremendously appealing to me. Or, you could just bring me some vacation-- doesn't need no fancy wrap.


Boston? You're going to Boston? For 2 whole weeks?



Well, I'm going to Michigan for 2 weeks, and THEN I'm going to Boston for 2 weeks...but it's actually Chelmsford which is apparently an hour from Boston, but still. :)

I'm sure I can think of something(s). Let me consult the Swede in the house and get back to you. Those pictures are fabulous!

Thank you for remembering!
It was really nice to see you tonight.
