Enemy of my breathing

So for the past few weeks I have woken up with dry, itchy eyes and a sore throat.
Nope, not sick. Mother Nature just hates me. Also, these stick demons are all over Oklahoma.

It’s okay because after allergy-tornado season, it will be Summer here in Oklahoma and then we can bake cookies in our car windows while mosquitos eat us alive. Sometimes I think about moving. Okay, almost every day. But mainly because of the ALLERGIES that attack my family. I know there is medicine for it, and my son does have a prescription. I try to soothe it with over-the-counter medicine for myself, but some days it just does nothing. I guess as a mom we put ourselves last. Maybe someday I will be brave enough to visit a local allergy clinic. For now, I’ll just angrily write about it here.

Spring is *almost* here!

Tomorrow is the *official* first day of Spring! Yay! Bring on the butterflies (yep) and the pollen (nope). I know how you can still have some Spring-y fun! You can make your way among the flowers and through this maze!

 This printable worksheet from is the perfect way to prepare for the spring flowers. Find more engaging preschool resources here! Mazes are great for refining fine motor skills, require little eyes to use scanning skills which help with reading, and help little ones to problem-solve.

Saturday Sillies

These are really my FriYAY FunYAYs postings, but I ran out of time to post yesterday. It was my Prince Charming's 50th birthday. I had to pick up the cake, wrap all the gifts, and order an outrageously large balloon bouquet and then take it to his work. So it was a busy day off for me!
We went out dinner and I had him pick and he chose the practical, but tasty Panera. I think he knew since I am recovering from a cold that I was secretly craving soup from there. So good!!!
Have a happy weekend, friends!

Senior picture boy with his cat took a new photo with his principal and her dog!

Oh wait...we're cutting both. :/

Galaxy donuts!!!
