Sorry, I couldn’t resist. But, we really did have an excellent weekend.

Saturday we journeyed to a neighboring community for yet another wrestling tournament. The Man-Cub did really well, placing second. The real fun, however didn’t start until we got home that afternoon.

Jana and the kids came over for an evening of egg-dyeing and a flashlight egg hunt. I don’t know who had more fun, the kids who hunted the eggs, or the adults who got to hide them. And, I use the term “adults” loosely considering the fact that it was Hugh and Jana’s husband (who I used to refer to as New Hubby but who, after three years of marriage-this weekend- deserves some sort of a new nickname. Yeah, I’ll get right on that) who exercised their maturity by stashing the eggs in difficult locations such as in the branches of trees.

To the kids’ credit, they found every one of those eggs, tree branches notwithstanding.

Sunday morning, our kids were up at the crack of dawn for a raid on their Easter baskets. The bunny did not disappoint; chocolate bounty galore!

And, since the Easter candy wasn’t quite enough to tip us into the chocolate coma zone; we met Jana, Hubby To Be Nicknamed Later and the kids at the theater for a showing of Horton Hears a Who later that day. and, there we purchased yet more candy for showtime noshing.

Today, I am back on the diet and fitness wagon. My heel feels a world better than it did this time last month and I think it is time to start working out again. Besides, I have to do something to counter-act the effects of all that candy.


  1. oooo, flashlight egg hunting sounds most fun. I will have to remember that when the kids are a little older.

  2. I've never heard of an egg hunt by flashlight. What a great idea!
