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

Yup--did it a while ago, actually. Around Ash Wednesday. Tis the Lenten season.

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

5 years. I've been AT FT since 2001, and AH PT since 1999. So I've been my own boss the longest.

3. Weekend plans?

DD has her first soccer game Saturday, DS has confirmation class on Sunday.

On Wednesdays we wear pink.

Bord, that is many more items than I ever put out for Easter. We do usually have a bowl of red eggs, but that is tradition more than decoration, and they go on the table at midnight between Saturday and Easter Sunday (this all posted to continue the hoax that I live in Greece, see?)

Done decorating for awhile :) Memorial day I put flags outside but nothing for the inside of the house until Halloween :)

I re-do my entryway table every month.  It's not a huge space, but I do something sesaonal.  May is general spring, June is general summer, July is patriotic theme, August is beach theme, September is apples for fall and back t school, etc.

No, I don't decorate for Easter.  The Easter Bunny usually puts a few decoration type things out when he visits.

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

This job, I guess although it keeps changing.  Either 5 years in July or 6 years in September, depending on how you count "one job."  Or less than 2 months if you only mean the exact responsiblities I have right now. (Yay for promotions!)

3. Weekend plans?

A bridal shower on Saturday, and maybe having my dad down for dinner on Sunday.

I don't decorate for Easter.

The one I have now, 14+ years.

3. Weekend plans?

Besides the normal shopping errand I also have to buy a shower gift,  a wedding gift and and baby gifts.   I will have three new great nephews this year, the first was born a couple of days ago. I will probably buy a gift for all of them this weekend.

Saturday night we are going to a hockey game.  Sunday a wedding shower, it will be the first couples shower we have ever attended.

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."

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.

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
