I cannot tell you how many times over the last month that I have felt guilty when I wanted to do something else like watch a movie, read a book, or just veg a bit and recharge.

I love nothing more then seeing my kids faces light up when they see their baskets of goodies on Easter morning. With that though comes the realization that they are going to want to eat all the sugary goodness they see ( normally as soon as possible).
