(start sarcastic font) How to have a total blast the week you turn 33 (end sarcastic font)

This Saturday, March 27, is my birthday.  Every year as I approach my birthday I feel the need to catch up on things, re-access goals, set new goals, fill my freezer, tackle a DIY project (the one I meant to tackle last week but canceled due to sick kids), even some spring cleaning. 

This week I'm also going to be reading about different homeschool curriculums, probably ordering some books, seeing what programs are available to homeschoolers that are recognized in public school programs.

I just read on someone's post about a Pizza Hut reading program.  I'm sorry I cannot remember who it was to give them the link credit they deserve.  But she said it applied to homeschoolers as well. 

I'm also going to be checking out Scholastic Book Printables and mini books.  When Scholastic Book contacted me to take a look at their site and include a link from my blog, I was thrilled!  I LOVE the Scholastic Book book orders that my children bring home from public school.  I even joined one of their monthly book clubs when Pookie was a newborn.  I never thought to look online and see what else they offer.  I have spent a few hours already perusing all the great stuff over there.  Take a look yourself!  Whether you homeschool or public school or are looking for some fun educational opportunities for summer, Scholastic Books has something for everyone.   

So yeah,

Scholastic Book Printables and Minibooks
Everthing your first grader needs to know
Teach your child to read in 100 easy lessons (reviewing this to start with Bun)
Top-secret project Danny doesn't know about yet
Pressure canning chicken
breakfast burritos
visiting teaching
scrub the top of the fridge
Pack Meeting
Girl Scouts
Feeding the missionaries
Wednesday's playdate and lunch
organize homeschool classroom

So that's what I'm doing this week.  I'll be back next Monday. 

Feel free to leave me a Happy Birthday message.  or 33.  That's how old I'm turning.  Hard to believe, I know.  Seems like just yesterday I was sneaking out of the house at midnight running through the sprinklers in downtown Pleasant Grove.

You're 33 already?! Oh no, wait - aaaaah, that makes me almost 35 -----what the heck happened to my youth?!!!!

okay, your birthday week should really be about you I guess, so forget my little freak out. I hope you have an awesome, fabulous, terrific birthday week/month/year. If I lived closer I'd make you a yummy cake or dinner or something.
