- I am soooo glad the first out of two work stresses is out of the way. I had been worried about this case for a long time and it finally came to be. I made it through and have a bit of time before my next case comes to be.

- It is finally feeling like Spring here. We have been having weather in the 70s and 80s all week and it has been soooo welcomed. And when I was in Vegas, we had some 90 degree weather. Wow was that hot.

- I still can't believe we took this much dg and turned it into this.

- My coworkers went to Japan for two weeks and one of them brought me back some treats. Well let me back up a bit, one of our other coworkers wife is from that area and told us about these things called Tokyo Bananas. They said they were like Twinkies, but fresh and didn't last forever. We looked up the different flavors and said we wanted to try them. So my coworker brought us back the original flavor and the strawberry ones.

I busted out the strawberry ones right away and it was really good. Way better than a Twinkie. I had the banana one later and it was even better than the strawberry one.

- We have gotten reports from daycare that one or both of the girls has been sassy all week. Basically they are saying no a lot and being a typical two year old, but I don't want it to progress where they are causing problems. Usually they are overall good, but maybe this missed me this week? Maybe they are just going through a phase?

    1. Yes we are. I need all the sunshine I can get. The treats are good and not very different from Twinkies, but so much fresher.

  6. I work for a Japanese company and co-workers are constantly bringing back treats for us, but they've never brought those! I'll have to put in a request next time!

  9. 90 degree heat in Vegas is no joke! Growing up there was brutal in the summer.
