Spring Break

Yousuf came home on Friday and informed me that he was on Spring Break.  We have been so busy lately that we completely forgot we had a week long vacation coming up.  What kind of people forget that they have a week off?!?!  Clearly we need some serious help.

Because we forgot about Spring Break, we are obviously not going away anywhere.  Instead of making wonderful family memories on the shores of some tropical sunny beach, we are going to be making and packing boxes in the dank, dark basement to get ourselves ready to move.  Oh joy, oh bliss...I can hardly wait.  Both Yousuf's parents and my parents are visiting (not at the same time), so hopefully they can keep the kidlets entertained while we work (I don't wanna work!  I just want a VACATION!!!).

I am going to go light on the blog-posting this week because I'm going to PRETEND that I'm on vacation, even if I can't have one.  Even if Yousuf makes me pack boxes I will sit in the dark, dank basement with a (non-alcoholic) umbrella drink in hand and I don't care who laughs at me.  It's MY fake vacation (fake-ation?) and I deserve to do with it as I please.  So there.

I'm also going to try to do some spring cleaning here on the blog.  There are a couple new things I'd like to add, and will be working on those in the background.  The first will be easy - the blog desperately needs a Search Box (so that you can find all those amazing recipes that I know you keep coming back for.  Right?  Riiiiiight?).  I'd also like to do an Archives page, but I have no idea how to do that so I'm basically talking out my bum and will have to do a bit of research first.

Lastly, I'd like to do a FAQ, but as I have no idea what people would Frequently Ask me Questions about, I thought that you - the people who have taken a peek into my crazy life and not run away screaming in terror - might like to help a girl out. So...whaddya you want to know about me (I'm for sure going to let you know how to pronounce my name.  It's the least I can do, after all that we've shared)?   Drop me a line at mahreen at venividiblogi dot com or post your questions below.  I'm game to answer just about anything, and I'm sure it will make for one very interesting FAQ.

Also, if you have any ideas for recipes, I'm always willing to try them out - we are vegetarian so if you send me a recipe for roast meat in meaty-meat sauce with a side of meat salad then there is a slim chance that I will pass.  But if you come across a recipe (bonus points for healthy, extra bonus points for desserts!) you'd like me to blog about please send it along to the same email address: mahreen at venividiblogi dot com 

Feel free to email me anytime about suggestions on how to make this blog better, rants, raves or whatever else.  I really do love hearing from you, even if I sound ornery.  I'm not really like that in real life.  It's mostly because I blog when I'm uncaffeinated.  I know I should stop, but then I wouldn't be nearly as funny as I am now.

And as always, I will be forever grateful if you should decide to share my blog with the world. Go the little ShareThis know you want to. 

Thanks for being there, friends.  I wouldn't be blogging if it weren't for you!

 Nice picture, eh?  Too bad it's not us.  Happy Spring Break, indeed.
