Hi there! Been a couple weeks so I thought I’d get a quick update in. The week before Easter and the weekend of Easter was pretty awesome. Hubby’s sister came up for a couple days to hang out with the kids and spoil them- they love their Aunt Jaime! Then on that Friday we got a surprise visit from Kelly, our office manager at our last clinic, and her family. So so good to see her- I miss her so much. Then that evening we got to see my BFF Jessie and her husband John for some drinks and dinner (they were in town visiting family for Easter).
For Easter weekend, my little family, my parents and my brother and his wife and kid all caravanned down to SE Iowa to visit my brother Jake and his wife Mollie and see their new house. They have a huge acreage and a beautiful house, it was just so picturesque. They are so lucky to come home to that every day!
My other brother, his wife and kids came down too, so it was a big slumber party at Jake’s house. It was a quick trip, but we had a great time. Lots of yummy food, exciting final 4 basketball, and of course an Easter egg hunt and some kite flying.
Such a great time. The kids were a little sick of the car by Sunday’s drive, so it was a struggle but Grandma fed them some ice cream, and we watched movies and sang songs to pass the time by.
Work has kept me plenty busy, which I love, but sometimes it is a little overwhelming. My accountants probably hate me because I just finished up my tax work on Friday. Guess the 15th is coming up or something. I’ve also been trying to get some running done, because this next weekend I will be running a 10K, which I haven’t done in a very long time. With work, tax stuff, and trying to actually spend time with my kids, I probably haven’t trained very well, but I’m hoping I will at least be able to run the whole thing and not walk it. I have been battling a stupid head cold thing for a couple weeks now too, so that may complicate it. I thought it was getting better but today woke up with a bad sore throat and pressure in my sinuses. Let’s hope it calms down a little before Saturday!
The weather was pretty rainy and gloomy this week, but finally yesterday it cleared up. We were able to go play at the park both days this weekend and even sneak over to the new frozen yogurt place.
Before I forget, a belated happy 60th birthday to my momma! She turned 60 years young a couple weeks ago. Hopefully we can get away for a fun mother-daughter trip sometime soon to celebrate.
And happy anniversary to Hubby, number 6 last weekend. Time sure flies!
I’ll leave you with this little gem, sometimes you just can’t fight fatigue…
