1. Did you (do you) decorate for Easter yet?.......

Not yet, will do so this weekend, just took down the St. Patrick's day decorations. While my kids don't believe in the Easter Bunny anymore, they still want to dye eggs and have us hide the plastic ones. They will still get stuff in an Easter basket too next Sunday. 

2. Speaking of bosses, how long was the longest you worked at one job?.......

18 years

3. Weekend plans?......

Friday-oldest going to movies with friends (sure we will be shuttling one way or the other)

Saturday-oldest practice, watching nephews for a couple hours, decorating for Easter, food shopping

Sunday-nephew bday party (first one a kids bday party-hubby and I will probably just go run into the mall as I am still looking for a raincoat and then later on celebration with family for dinner and cake)

1. Did you (do you) decorate for Easter yet?

No.  Probably won't.

2. Speaking of bosses, how long was the longest you worked at one job?

I've been at my current job for 8 years.  That's the longest. 

3. Weekend plans?

I'm going to a bridal shower on Saturday.  Joel has a massage on Sunday so I'll probably get a manicure or something while he's doing that. Will probably hang with GAB on Friday and Saturday nights.  And laundry, laundry, laundry...as well as other assorted household stuff.

1. Did you (do you) decorate for Easter yet? I don't decorate for "Easter." I decorate for spring, sort of (I change out the Yankee Candles and buy flowers). Summer, sort of (same as spring). Fall, I go all out because I love the colors. And then Christmas. But I am not into decorating for every holiday that comes along. I have enough to do!

2. Speaking of bosses, how long was the longest you worked at one job? I have been at the same company now for more than half my life.

3. Weekend plans? Yes

1. Did you (do you) decorate for Easter yet? -- No, I don't decorate for Easter. Or even really celebrate it.

2. Speaking of bosses, how long was the longest you worked at one job? -- This one. It will be five years in May.

3. Weekend plans? -- Driving to Albuquerque and back.  sigh.  Get The Kids back from the ex on Sun morning.   But I will eat here Saturday night, so that will make it not so bad. http://www.sandiapeakrestaurants.com/sandiagos/  I will have blood orange margaritas, good mexican food, and a spectacular view.

1.  No, Easter decorations go up after midnight on Easter Eve.  No decorations during Lent.
2.  I have worked at my current job for sixteen years, with some promotions along the way.  I think it's the longest I have worked anywhere.
3.  No big plans.  Gym, shopping, and housework on Saturday.  Palm Sunday procession and service downtown Sunday.  Probably more housework.  Maybe work on my son's quilt I am making.  There is a storm headed our way and the computer models can't make up their mind, so we are supposed to get between 2 and 24 inches of snow.  Anything over six inches, and I will be found curled in the fetal position and whimpering.  I am so sick of winter weather, winter driving, etc.  Older DS is supposed to be in a wedding this weekend.  Don't know if he can get out -- it's about twelve miles out of town -- if we get a whole lot of snow.

1. Did you (do you) decorate for Easter yet?  No, I haven't in a couple years.  It didn't seem that important now that the kids are older.  They still wanted to decorate eggs last year, I need to find out if they want to this year.

2. Speaking of bosses, how long was the longest you worked at one job?  I've been at my job 8 years & the longest besides this was 7.  Apparently I match Bea!

3. Weekend plans?  On Friday, Dd1 is having her boyfriend & a couple friends over to watch a movie, so maybe we'll get them pizza.  Dd2 has sleepover birthday party.  Saturday they both have dance class.  Then dd1 & I will be doing a Girl Scout cookie booth sale for 4 hours--unless we sell out beforehand.  Then both dd's are going to my parents house to spend the night.  Gee dh & I will have the house to ourselves, whatever will be do with ourselves?????  Sunday I guess they will come home do homework, so I won't be running around with them.  I have no plans for Sunday.

1. Did you (do you) decorate for Easter yet? We are supposed to decorate?

2. Speaking of bosses, how long was the longest you worked at one job? I have been doing pretty much the same thing for about 20 years now, but I don't have a boss.

3. Weekend plans? No

1.  Not really, I have a flag, There's a candy dish in the shape of an egg that I have hershey kisses in on the d/r table, That's it.  I've started buying for my kids' easter baskets and I have a couple more things to get for them, I also have to buy cards for DH's parents and my dad. 

2.  This makes me think, Maybe 10 years.  It was the banker job I loved before and a little after kids came along.  I started that in 1988 or 1989 and continued doing that same job even after we moved to a new city, I quit for 6 mos after DD1 was born then resigned for good the same month DD2 was born.

3.  We may see the Oz movie.  Dinner plans but I don't know where yet.  Palm Sunday mass.

LOL...I have a small collection of stone and jewelled eggs that I set out in a wooden bowl on my entry-way table, along with some small stuffed rabbits from my sons' childhood.  Some years I put an Easter lily out there, too.  Oh, and I have an antique framed Easter postcard that I hang during April.  That's it for my "decorating."
