Wt: Are you kidding? I just got finished with a no-chocolate Lenten fast, and you want me to weigh? Silly Reader.
Mood: Happily dozy.
Work: Hot Jobs (waiting for last one now), did Ingle column, and will finish Updated Recipe search. :) THEN, I’ll start the Comics Survey set to launch on Thursday.
Lunch: Will go to Cherry Hill Mall to get Disney Dollars and have spartan lunch.
Afternoon: YMCA Workout
Evening: Clean up apartment
What’s Playing: Dave Matthews Band live at Folsom Field. Hey, my (lawn seat) tickets for the 9/5 concert came in the mail! Happy 31st Birthday to me!

How I broke my no-chocolate Lenten Fast: By having two brownies and chocolate milk for breakfast at Old Country Buffet. And some scrambled eggs and potatoes on the side! ;)

Easter was lovely. Went to church at 8:30 am. Dinner at Sue’s. It was great, but without MomMom around it just wasn’t the same. Last Easter, she had just had some minor surgery done and was very weary. She put her head on the dinner table and fell asleep. Poor sweet MomMom — her last year was really a tough one. It’s tough to sit around the table with one less family member there. If I dwell on it, my heart hurts. The upside is that by making her Easter Bread, I felt close to her. As long as we can keep our little family traditions alive, she’ll always be remembered. The next time that Mom goes to the house, she’s going to get MomMom’s baking pans for me. :)

Daylight Savings Time has stolen Venus from my mornings. A month from now, and I should be coming to work in almost-daylight!

Yes, Virginia, you CAN still eat Velveeta and be healthy!

Wt: 137.2 Lowest yet! :) Proof that yes, Virginia, you CAN still eat Velveeta and be healthy!
Mood: COLD! It’s in the 40s today. I wore shorts and a tanktop yesterday at home. Today I’m in a black ribbed sweater, skirt, hose, and my black ‘suede’ boots-are-make-for-walking boots, and I’m freezing!
Work: Did Communities and Scrapbook. Am now entrenched in updating recipes search.
Afternoon/Evening: Baking Easter Bread w/Mom.
What’s Playing: Still Mamas and Papas. I have “California Dreaming,” “Go Where you Wanna Go,” “Monday, Monday,” I Call Your Name,” “Creeque Alley,” and “Dream a Little Dream of Me” on repeat.

It should be in the low 80s today!

Wt: 138
Mood: Jovial, springy
Work docket: Already did Online Mall. Have to do Parenting Today for April, plus do some tweaking with the past issues to get it into the new design. I also want to start playing with my recipes search.
Afternoon: Cleaning. Nothing has changed for me, dear Reader.
Evening: Yoga

What’s Playing: Mamas and Papas greatest hits. I have “Creeque Alley” on repeat. Mama Cass had such a great voice. She’d never make it here in the Post-Britney era. :(

Almost Easter

Yes, I’m back! (waves to her three readers)

It’s pretty funny…I missed chronicling my daily activities. Even as mundane as they are. So, to wrap up my last 10 days…

Weight: Low of 137.2. High of 143.8. I’ll never get to 135 by the time I leave for my trip. I’m now OK with that, since I’m firmly into size 8 jeans, shorts, and skirts.

Mood: Still bummed about many things, but not to the sobbing point I was when I wasn’t blogging.

Asheron’s Call: Dierdre the Pain is 63. Muireann (my archer) is 40!! Forty levels in three weekends. Pain took 2 1/4 years to make it to 63.

May Disney Vacation: We switched our reservation to the Polynesian. We are pleased.

Hair: Mickey has his spring haircut. I’m getting red ‘low-lights’ this afternoon. Because it’s not really a new season until I alter my hair.

Lent: I’ve gotten used to meatless Fridays. I miss chocolate with a passion, and will probably need to borrow Mickey’s insulin on Easter Sunday. I think it would have been easier had I given up Asheron’s Call!

Baking: Mom and I are baking Easter Bread on Thursday and Friday — it’s MomMom’s recipe. Although MomMom couldn’t bake for us last year, it will be tough knowing she isn’t here to tell us that hers was better. ;) If I can find an inexpensive webcam that doesn’t make me look like I’m 58 years old, I’ll fire it up while I bake. That’s a big IF.
