Spring is knocking at my door. Easter candy and egg-dyeing kits greet me while shopping, as does the matzo and grape juice. It's still not time to change out my dresser drawers and move into spring wear, but some shopping has begun. My kids are taking their proficiency tests in school and enjoying activities like basketball and theater. My youngest daughter is in her high school production of Spamalot. This is where Monty Python meats more social netwroking than he can make fun of. It's a wonderful show and so sweet to hear her humming things like 'Arms for the Poor" and "Always look on the Bright Side of Life." Track season is just about to start. Sometimes I spend more money on my kids' athletic gear than on maintaining my car. And my groceries always run out before her next major shopping trip. An extra freezer could really help me out, not having to run out for an extra carton of milk or bread or fish sticks could save me valuable time. Spring break is on the horizon. I'm not sure who needs it more. Mom
and dad or the kids or the teachers. But first I think I'll take a trip to Craigslist.
