Spring has sprung! It's going to be 75 degrees today! And as I look out the window, I see all kinds of trees starting to bud and bulbs around. Consequently, we've been outside *a lot* and my computer time has diminished even more.

Actually, I think that's a good thing, because it prevents me from going to the news sites all the time and worry myself with what's going on in Iraq and the rest of the world. We're once again under an orange terror alert and there is a lot of controversy here in the county about the emergency plans the schools are devising in case of a chemical or biological attack. Everything seems so dark sometimes, when it comes to the future!

Therefore, I'm working hard at concentrating on the present. Since I updated my blog last, we had Katja's birthday. She's 13 now! And what a great kid she is. I'm very, very proud of her. We had dinner at the Melting Pot and on Saturday, she had her party: shopping at the mall, then pizza, movies and a sleepover with 8 friends. She also has a really nice group of friends, some were new since she went to middle school.

Last weekend, we (Katja and I) unexpectedly flew to Massachusetts to celebrate my nephew's first birthday. We flew out on Saturday and back on Sunday, short, but it was well worth it.

Tomorrow, Kai and I are going to do things together. I'm allowing him to stay home from school to spend some one on one time with him. Well, off to enjoy spring some more!
