What a Slacker!

Just when it comes to this blog, of course!  Spring has seem to bring an endless amount of WORK that both Scott and I are trying to get through.  My replacement for my travel job started a month ago, but she started right in the middle of the busiest time of the year - and I haven't been able to extract myself from the job completely.  I think the end is in sight, though - I'm hoping that April brings many new changes...one of which consists of me having just one job!

Scott's been incredibly busy getting his business set up - and scheduling side work whenever he can.  It's funny, he used to give me a hard time about being on my laptop, and every single night, he's glued to his now.  Maybe he would be willing to post a few blog entries!

And little Ava.  Sweet, sweet Ava.  She's doing great! Well, except for the two visits to the doctor within 2 weeks.  Strep and the flu have been going around the community, so she's been tested for strep twice, and the flu once.  All 3 times, we have lucked out, and the tests came back negative! 

Ava and Scott had an excellent time today playing outside - the chalk is out of the garage, and we have fresh designs in the backyard! I think all of us are counting the days until we can go to the park and burn off some energy.  I'm already thinking of the fun places we can go this summer - the museum, the splash pool, the zoo, etc.  Ava's finally at an age where we can take her places and she "gets" it.  Lots of fun things to look forward to in the future!

For my new" job, I was sent to Denver this past week for a business meeting.  How convenient!  The meeting was on Tuesday, but I flew out on Saturday morning (first class...ahhhh....) and spent 3 great days with my parents.  It's the first time I had visited them without Scott or Ava in many, many years - and it was fantastic!  The weather was beautiful in Denver...I needed a break from the Minnesota cold and snow.  Sunshine and vitamin D has an amazing effect on the mood!

On Sunday we went to the Denver Museum of Science and Nature, and there was a great view of Denver from the 4th floor.  I'm already looking forward to my next trip back!

I promise, there will be pics of Ava one of these days...I'm still floored when I look at her hair now, and realize how long it's getting.  She sure ain't a baby anymore!  Can't believe she'll be three years old in three months!  Yikes - where did the time go?!

Happy Spring!
