Yesterday was one of my most favorite days of the month! Why is that? We hired a maid a few months ago to clean the house and she comes every other Thursday. She cleans the house up and down and when she leaves around 6:30 Thursday evening the house is sparkling!! She changes the sheets, does the showers, floors, windows, just about everything! She has even climbed a ladder and cleaned our ceiling fan of dust that is 20 feet high in our living room. We <3 her!
On 3/18 Joe and I decided to go out to dinner at La Hacienda Ranch – our favorite place to eat in Dallas. The one we go to is in Frisco. The boys enjoy the kids meals, we enjoy the tex-mex and then afterwards we insert quarters so the kids can ride the horses and bulls!
Mark your calendar. On March 19th, a full Moon of rare size and beauty will rise in the east at sunset. It's a super "perigee moon"--the biggest in almost 20 years.
"The last full Moon so big and close to Earth occurred in March of 1993," says Geoff Chester of the US Naval Observatory in Washington DC. "I'd say it's worth a look."
"The full Moon of March 19th occurs less than one hour away from perigee--a near-perfect coincidence1that happens only 18 years or so," adds Chester.

We grabbed the boys and took them outside to see it. When it first came up it looked orange. I talked to my mother, who lives in Michigan, and her moon looked orange too. It was glowing so brightly. It was quite a sight!
On 3/21 I decided to finally make applesauce with the apples I had that were over ripe. I asked Justin to help. Lately he’s been quite needy of attention and really enjoys helping me with household chores and baking. He helped me cut the apples with the apple corer/slicer. He then helped me shred them and then pour them into the pot to cook. He was so proud of himself!
Justin must be learning about careers at preschool. He’s come home multiple times lately telling me he wants to be:
- A doctor
- A dentist
- A dad (he’s told me this over and over)
- A fireman
- A police officer
It’s so cute when he tells me he wants to be a dad.
All Joey has been doing is playing pokemon since we got him the strategy guide for it. Mom has also become the coolest mom ever because I’m able to show him how to get past parts of his game that have him frustrated to no end.
On 3/22 Joey had an art fair at school. We purchased a frame for his art and we love how it turned out. In fact he wants his room to be repainted purple and lime green – which actually match the color in his painting. Sorry for the reflection from the lights. I tried to move the angle of the camera to get rid of it and it didn’t work well.
Today is 3/25 and Joe’s birthday. Joey has his first baseball game tonight.
Justin was insistent on making Joe his birthday cake.
Joey has been very, very moody lately. He usually gets really irritated if you bother him while he’s playing his ds. I’m about to start putting time limits on it if his attitude keeps up. It’s really starting to make me mad. Other times he’s super loving and wants to cuddle. Maybe it’s a seven year old thing. Either way, it’s really annoying! I can only imagine I was ten times worse growing up!
