April weather

is a bit on the chilly side.  The temp today made it all the way up into the low 50's.  It is still 42ยบ outside and feels a bit damp.  I hope tomorrow will be nicer with plenty of sunshine.  The schools here are on Spring Break and that means Amber has come for a visit.  She will also visit her Dad for a few days while she is here......and that is good.  She needs her daddy and he needs to spend time with her too.  He and his bride moved into a new place with her kids and his kids and their one together.  Amber has not seen it yet and he is anxious for her to see it.  I know she will like it.

Tom is still laid off and I'm not so sure anymore that he will ever be called back to work there.  He really wants to go back but it is looking more and more like he will have to find a new job.  And that will be one with less pay and less benefits........I'm not sure we will survive financially if that happens.  But there is no point in worrying about it.....what happens, happens.  There is nothing we can do about it.  If only the economy wasn't so screwed up we could at least sell our  home and rent if need be or purchase a smaller one.  I don't want to have to do that...I really like our house.  But I guess it all depends on if he gets called back anytime soon.

In anticipation of the nicer Spring weather, Tom and I did some spring cleaning last week so if the weather should become warmer and sunny we can be outside with the grandkids that will be coming and going during Spring Break.  We had Drew on Thursday night and most of the day Fri.  Also had Zaidyn Fri.  We picked Amber up Sunday and I know for sure that Trenten and Ty will be coming over on Thursday evening to spend the night and stay until we take them to their aunt mid-morning Fri.  Amber will most likely go to her dad's for part of this week but should return before Easter in order to eat with us and get home on time.  School resumes the day after Easter.  I'm not sure who else might be coming to stay during Spring Break and I guess it's just a good thing that we live in a big house!

Enjoy Spring Break!!
