It's raining right now. We've finished dinner and Tommy has instructed me to enjoy a little quiet while he
Speaking of Tommy, today he passed the PMP (Project Management Professional) certification exam, which is a big deal for him professionally and a big deal for all of us psychologically. You know, I don't personally care or mind what letters he could put after his name on a business card. But I knew that it mattered to him whether or not he passed, and for that reason I was on pins and needles all morning. Around 11 a.m. I started anticipating the phone ringing. At 11:52 it rang.

But hey! Have you seen her Etsy shop yet? I demanded she make me a button for it which I've stashed over there on the sidebar -----> You will be enamored though, so don't say I didn't warn you.
Later this week I'll review and do a giveaway of A Little Book about Confession for Children. But I have some other loves that are perfect for Lent and Easter, one of which is The Life of Jesus: An Illustrated Rosary
and On Easter Day in the Morning, which I think I've recommended before on this here blog.
For my Aunt Ann who has undergone some very serious, unexpected surgeries over the last few days. I know so many of you are already praying along with me for her, but the situation is still potentially dire, so please keep her in your hearts.

Someone should really scrub my bathtub. And paint our hallway.
I wish this was clearer, but it's still sweet. A kids' performance of Frog and Toad for Cecilia and her friend Belle who are almost-birthday-buddies-one-year-apart.
Belle's mama and I are due on pretty much the same day with our new babies. Her husband insists it's a race and OH MY GOSH HOW WILL I EVER LIVE IT DOWN IF SHE BEATS ME????
