Easter weekend recap

Hope everyone is recovered from their weekend. I sure hope I am, because I didn't do a lick of housework or laundry. So I know what I'm doing this morning...  I have some excuse, though.  I had some mighty full days this weekend. Brian was out of town and I had a lot of stuff on my plate. Saturday morning, I had Easter choir rehearsal at 10:30. It was nearly 1 by the time I left the church building from that. I had to make a stop to hunt up something to use for the kids' Easter baskets on my way home. So that left me getting home a bit after 2.

Then Halle and I went to see the Hannah Montana movie together. She redeemed her Christmas stocking coupon for "1 movie with the parent of your choice" so we could have a mommy/daughter date. Call me a sucker, but I liked the movie. I wouldn't even mind having the soundtrack (especially if it includes Rascal Flatts singing "Bless the Broken Road"). Just don't ask me to dance the "Hoedown Throwdown." Nothing good would come of it. 

Hung out with the kids the rest of the evening and hit the hay around 10ish since I needed to be up early for Easter. Unfortunately, it took me a while to fall asleep and then I kept waking up every hour or so through the night ... for some reason I tend to do that when I know I need to get up early. Wound up getting up around 5:30 to play Easter Bunny for the kids and get ready for church. Left at 6:30 so I could grab a couple boxes of donuts to take with me. Since the choir/worship team was going to be at church from 7-12:30, we all brought something to share/snack on between services. We had 3 services beginning at 8am. The second service was packed, and it made it even warmer than usual in the auditorium. But the singing was great... I could have sung all day if it wasn't for the standing up part!

Got home a little after 1 and grabbed the kids for lunch. We went to Outback (saw another family from church there, too). Then after we got home from there, I took a nap because I was plumb tired out. It sure felt good. Just kinda chilled the rest of the evening. So today I pay the piper: laundry, some housework, and probably grocery-shopping to round it out.

Wow - sounds busy! I hope you enjoy your last week of spring break (if I'm counting correctly).

Busy weekend sis.
I was ill and doing a 72 EEG so missed Easter service but have been encouraged and uplifted by reading posts about the death, barrial and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ. Keep up the great work you do with your blog as it does inspire. I hope you have a fantastic weekend. Maybe less busy. :-)
