I confess it, although it's probably no secret - I am a Pinterest addict. I love it! I love new ideas, stumbling across brilliance and dreaming of what I will make/create/do/craft. Especially when I am feeling bogged down in the the yuckiness of daily life, I can find all kind of joy there.
The last week or so has been rather grim. Between an unexpected $800 + car repair, LB deciding that sleeping is for dummies and he isn't going to do it, his resulting grouchiness, lots of talk about a possible teaching strike and colleagues acting like babies, I haven't been feeling especially chipper. I was needing something silly to cheer me up. I found it on Pinterest!
I wanted to find something for Easter. I can't send food treats to Pk's class (we aren't allowed) but we can still take things to daycare and to friends at church. I was browsing and found the idea of "egging" someone. It's like "boo-ing" someone (something I discovered last year when we were "boo-ed"), you leave a surprise treat with a chain letter type deal and pass the fun on. For this challenge, you have to leave a dozen plastic eggs with treats, the letter and a sign to be posted to tell others that you have already been egged. This link had all the information and everything you need to get involved. Buying pretty pastel eggs, fun tattoos, baskets and candy was just what I needed.
