Whew!

Bad Blogger! I can't believe it has been since the end of January since I posted! It couldn't be that I was buried in tax returns and also still being sick! Remember how I wrote that I had had pnuemonia? Well, it kept coming back as a upper respiratory infection, clear through February, March and now into April. Add to that I have coughed so much that I have now bruised my larynx and have this raspy voice. I am hoping that now that tax season is over, I can rest it enough to have it heal! It is not so funny to go to church and not be able to sing! Singing has always been such an important part of my life that I would die if I couldn't sing! Even my dad said this morning that I better get my voice back so he can hear me sing!

Speaking of my dad, today is his 71st birthday! So Happy Bday Raymond Malone!

And speaking of birthdays, I celebrated my 50th birthday on April 5th! I can't believe I am a half century old. I better get a move on, there are still so many things I haven't tried! I need to do everything at least once! Anyways, some of my kids got together and decorated my family room with 50 helium filled balloons! I came home from work to balloons everwhere! So we left them up and the next day everyone came for a cookout and cake and the kids had a blast playing with them!

The weather can't make up it's mind lately! Saturday and Sunday were in the 70's and then yesterday the wind blew 40 miles an hour and we, in Rigby, got 6 inches of snow! And it still hasn't melted off today! UGH!!!! I am so ready for the snow to be gone!

Chelsea went to southern California last week, with her school orchestra. They left Tuesday night, drove all night and had breakfast on the beach at Newport Beach. In 4 days they went to a medival competition, saw the play Wicked, performed in a school contest and spent the entire day Saturday in Disneyland! Then they got on the bus at midnight and drove all the way home! 20 hours on a bus! yuk! She was tired and very glad to be home, but at least now she can say she has been to California! And her orchestra did really well! Thank you Mr. Weed for having the patience to take this big group there! You gave them an opportunity of a lifetime!

Hoping to be back in fine form soon and hope to start scrapping again right away, so I can share it with you! I plan on going to a crop soon to help get my motors revved up!

Hey, TaxGirl, good to see you blogging again! I survuved this season, too, 12 extensions, so I am not through yet. This one is gonna be my last, I think. Except for family, you know that is always gonna be there. My ATX software had a small server meltdown and so I didn't know until this afternoon that my efiled returns had been accepted on time. No more of that for me, too scary. Happy Birthday, Chris. Glad it was a fun one for ya.
