Just made some crepes. My first time making them. Smothered them with strawberries and Cool Whip. Very delish. Yum. First one was rather freakish, but the second and third were near perfect.

Had a rather uneventful Easter. No freak blizzards that stranded family at home. We actually cut down on the amount of food made, but it was still a lot.

My parents got a new tv. They got a 32 inch LCD HDTV. I got their older 30 inch widescreen HDTV. Made my day. Now I got to get a new dvd player to actually make use of the HD.

I've come to the realization that I'm a weekend parent. My oldest niece and nephew are always here. I haven't figured out why they like it here. they can't say that its because of the computer anymore. They both have computers now, though their dad controls their internet access via the router. They have better game consoles than me. Kids.

Been doing major cleaning over the past several weeks. I'm going to be honest. I'm a horrible housekeeper and I keep everything. I try hard not to keep things, but I fail at that. So now I'm making a lifestyle change. It's just going to take a while to toss everything I know I don't need nor want. When I first moved into my apartment, I told myself that I wasn't going to become my great aunt, or even my mom. First year actually went well, but then if fell apart. Now I just need to pull it all back together.

I've made improvements. I got rid of my very large entertainment center. It had become a catch all in recent years. I replaced that with shelving, but I placed them high so it's too much of a chore to put crap on it. They are displaying my porcelain dolls and a few knick knacks. One of the shelves extends over my desk, so that got a few office supplies on it.

I'm trying.

when they were younger, the kids would see me on the weekends as well. i think it was for more of my benefit than their mom's. but i'm so glad that i had those opportunities to share with them before they became to old for me, you know? treasure it while it lasts!
