Where Did March Go?

Let me start by just saying I can't believe it is already April!! I had every intention of posting more often, but as you can see...that hasn't really happened. I wanted to say thank you to those who helped with my jean dilemma. About 2 weeks ago, I decided it was time for attempt 3 or 4, or whatever number it was. I am happy to report that I was successful! Maybe a little too successful.... I came home with 4 pairs of jeans!!! I got a really good deal on 3 of them, but of course my favorite pair was the one that was most expensive. I was only going to keep 2, maybe 3, of them but couldn't really decide which pair to take back. I think I've decided to just keep all of them. My reasoning is that it was such a headache to find jeans that fit and I spent so much time trying to find them, not to mention that the other jeans averaged out to only $33 a pair! I'd say you can't beat that!

There's not much else going on with us.... I've been working quite a bit the last couple of weeks - I'm definitly not complaining after all the bad weather we've had recently. Last week was a really good week! I actually got 42 paid hours + 8 for Good Friday! For those of you who missed my post on how I get paid, that is really, really good! I don't know how to link to it, so I'll give a brief explanation: I am an hourly employee and I pretty much only get paid for the time I'm in the airplane, unless it is a ground lesson. So, each flight that I schedule is a 2 hour block but actual flight time is only 1-1.5 hours. So, I could be at work 10 hours, but only get paid for 5-7 hours. So like I said, last week was really good! I told my mom I should stop calling it the weekend (because I've been working 6 days a week) and just start saying my day off! Hahaha!

As for Easter, I don't have any cutesy pictures to post of our matching Easter outfits or Easter egg hunts.... I didn't have a chance to go buy a new Easter 'frock' (that's what my dad says) so I just wore an outfit I already had. We went to church and then I attempted to go shopping for a new pair of tennis shoes Sunday afternoon, but the malls were closed. I was shocked that they were actually closed, but impressed. That pretty much sums up our day.

I'm hoping to be better at posting more often. It is difficult when there's not a lot exciting happening... but I'm going to try! I hope everyone has a wonderful second half of the week!

Not to mention in those crazy weeks that you got to see Cal and I a couple of times.....that should've been a highlight!
