Scrubbed finger & Sore cheeks!

So, I scrubbed the stove top today... my poor index finger! It almost feels like I took my finger print off! I finally decided it was time to tackle the stove top, and give it a really good scrub. We have a gas stove, so it means taking it all apart. I used a metal scrubber, but still had to use a fair amount of elbow grease to get all the build up off. This is not to say that the parts were really, really gross, just that I don't often scrub like this. Usually I just give it a good wash with soap and water, using a washcloth. I must admit it does look much better, but I can still see a few spots that need work... but, they can wait until my finger pad grows back in LOL.

As for my cheeks LOL. I bought some white eggs today (I prefer to buy brown) so that we could colour them for Easter. I had really only planned on boiling them, but in the end decided to blow some out. I have not done this for many, many years. So, I got a good needle for the job, and poked the appropriate holes... and away I blew! I didn't make very big holes, so it was a lot of work to get the white & yolk out of the egg. In the end I managed to get six done, but not sure if my cheeks will ever feel the same LOL. The boys were not all that interested, except to see the initial egg white come out... then it was off to make a mess with play dough.

Tomorrow night Hubby will be home. I am so excited to see him, and to actually spend time with him. As disappointed as I was that he had to head down to New Mexico, it did have the bonus of allowing him to adjust to the time change (11.5 hours) before coming home. Which means I will have my evenings with him, instead of him crashing by 6pm. The only con is that he won't be up as early to be with the boys first thing in the morning, but at least he will be here. Monkey is getting very excited to see him, I suspect he will be in our room at first light looking for Hubby.

The boys will help me make some Easter cookies tomorrow, and hopefully we will have a chance to ice them as well. I already have egg dying scheduled for Saturday, and want to leave them lots of time to play with Hubby.
