I may or may not be a day late with this post, but it's all good, right?! I'm blaming my tardiness on March Madness, 'cause I was *completely* TV stoned yesterday. The Hooligans are in HEAVEN this week with basketball on SOOOOO many channels!!! This is our Graceland! (LOVE Ace Ventura!) (But seriously, WTH is up with truTV carrying so many games?! What even IS truTV?! Did it exist before this week? Swear I'd never even heard of it till 2 days ago...oops! Probably because we're damn near ALWAYS locked & loaded into mostly ESPN & ESPN2, thanks to Cal. :)
Anyway... Happy (belated) St. Patty's Day!

I don't think anyone is happier that Spring is here than me. I have been ready for Spring since OCTOBER! I know, I know, I am CLEARLY living in the wrong state if I "hate winter," but this is HOME, and I'm not going anywhere. :) We were graced with our first thunderstorm (with hail even) a few days ago. I'm a regular Greg Forbes (is it creepy I know this guy's name & love his Torcon scale & watch him on The Weather Channel & possibly follow him on Facebook?! HAHAHAHAHAHA!) this time of the year, obsessively following the weather & tracking storms, frequently making comments about bow echos and warm fronts & shitstorms... oh wait, that may not be an official weather term, but I like it! Cal & I were ooooohhhing and aaaaahhhhhing over this phenomenon last weekend...
Speaking of green, I was busy mixin' up some magic (I'm out of control! I'm now quoting Ted, the hair guy, from What Not To Wear?!?!? Love him!) for my girl, Claire, and I thought I'd share my concoction. I've been on a mission to have her "eating" this (see green delight below!) more days than not each week (vs. jar organic baby food), so my Vita-Mix is working OT lately! I make a big green batch of love for her probably twice weekly, and I truly believe this is what has kept her so healthy through the nasty, germy winter. Yes, we're freaks. I'm fully aware, but hey, it's going into her g-tube, so at least she doesn't have to taste it!!!!! (Cal said he wants a g-tube so he can painlessly get HIS greens down. What... a dode.)
