Easter is coming along with The Peeps. It is a tradition of mine to buy a package of four Peeps and eat them immediately. This tradition now has spread to Halloween, Christmas and any other holiday when Peeps are available. I cannot wait until I get home and eat them one at a time, saving the rest for later. As soon as I leave the store, I am opening the package and eating them as fast as I can. I know. I m a diabetic and am being bad. I don't care. I love my PEEPS!

So I am sitting here listening to the morning news. All stores in Massachusetts except one will no longer be selling ground beef with pink slime due to the public outcry. The holdout? Walmart. But they will offer an alternative ground meet that doesn't have the pink slime. How nice of them. Think they will label the packages that do have the pink slime?

Getting ready to finalize our 2011 income tax returns which I began preparing, in earnest, 10 days ago.

During the years I was working, I filed my taxes the day I got my W2 forms. And when you could file them on line, I was in heaven. I had my refund in less than seven days.

Yeah, I have to get mine done. I feel more comfortable having someone else do them.

So far this morning, I'm up really early, as usual. I have taken care of the cat (fed and litter box), got cleaned up a little bit, made lunch and did a few dishes.

Been doing our own for over 50 years. Seems that they've become more painful every year for the last 20 years.

Almost on vacation...today and tomorrow to go. Tomorrow should be a short day, 4 hours. Found out this morning my Best friend had a fall and fractured her shoulder...it's possible I'll be going to Indiana instead of Kalispell or Whitefish.

Sorry to hear about your friend. Funny how life has so many unexpected twists & turns to it.

Just sitting here relaxing with a nice cool breeze coming through the back deck door. I should be out there exercising but this ole chair feels pretty good.
