Tommy hopped off the bus today with a huge smile on his face and a large Ninja Turtle and motorcycle in his hands. "I got treasure box today!" he shouted. Well, I opened his backpack to reveal many more "treasures." There was a book, memory game, brand new water colors, and a large bag filled with foam, magnetic letters! What the heck? As I sifted through the many papers, pictures, and toys in his backpack, I cam across a small note at the bottom that said: "As we prepare to box things up...for our move, we will be throwing out lots of items. Please be aware that you may notice lots of treasures (books and toys) coming home." Um, so what they're saying is, they are going to send home, with my four-year-old, all the crap that they don't want? Great.

I was just invited to perform at the beginning band concert at one of the middle schools that I work at! I would be playing by myself to demonstrate the lesson teachers' abilities and highlight private lessons. Oh crap. I am SO not prepared to do something like that, and playing in front of large audiences is NOT something I enjoy doing!!

I love chocolate. I mean, really, who doesn't? Well, yesterday, I was at Walgreen's buying some diapers and I took a shortcut through the candy aisle. I glanced to my right and saw that they had the Weight Watchers bags of chocolate candy on clearance for 75 cents a bag, and I just happened to have a coupon, Buy 2 Get 1 Free. So, I bought 3 bags for less than $2, and if I didn't like them, I would give them to the kids. They were HEAVENLY! I love them! They are SO good! The only kind that they had was Double Chocolate Mousse covered in Rich Dark Chocolate. Just the name of it makes my mouth water! I highly recommend these chocolates to anyone, not just someone trying to lose weight!

I would like to wish all you mothers out there a Happy Mother's Day! I hope you have a fabulous day! So far, mine has been great! Danny made breakfast for me, on my new, fabulous griddle, and took care of the kids last night when ALL THREE (what the heck?!) woke up on numerous occasions. What a great husband!

Stupid officials. Thanks to a missed call in the LAST THRITY SECONDS of an extremely close Mavs/Nuggets game, the Mavs lost. BY ONE STINKING POINT! So mad. It was a good game, and the Mavs had a very good chance to win it, AND gain momentum in the series, but it was stolen by a stupid ref. Now the Mavs have no prayer of winning the series. I can't wait to see what Cuban says about this.

A woman a playgroup told me about FreeCycle, an online group that posts stuff that you want to get rid of for free. I joined the group, and a couple of days later I saw a post for 2 free tricycles. Danny and I have been in the market for a trike for Eddie, but didn't really want to spend $50-$100 for something he wouldn't use that much. I responded to the post, the woman gave me her address, and I picked them up off her porch. For free. AND she lived only one neighborhood away! The Radio Flyer retails at Wal-Mart for about $60. This tricycle didn't have the push handle on it, which we really wanted, but it was in amazing shape. The woman said that she bought it for her son this past Christmas, but the handle bars wouldn't stay on. Danny tightened some bolts, and it's as good as new! The smaller, white trike was covered in Fisher Price stickers, but is still in great shape. That one stays in the backyard for all the kids to play with. Eddie loves his new tricycle, and I'm hooked on Freecyle!
