Up early (6:45ish) to get showered and ready to go to the 8am service at church. Didn't end up leaving until 7:45, so we ended up in the balcony. I had a bit of a dizzy spell in the middle of the sermon, and since you are practically sitting on a ledge, that was not fun. I went out and sat on the steps for a while. That helped and I could still hear and I didn't miss doing anything which was good. We sang all the good songs so I was happy. :-D Unfortunately, we used wafers for communion. It got stuck to the roof of my mouth and was there for a good 15 minutes... the wine server on our side was skimping so she wouldn't spill, so that didn't help either. :-P After church, we found our Easter baskets that the Easter bunny hid while we were at church. That is one sneaky Easter bunny... took me a good 10 minutes to find mine... we had to do that inside 'cuz it was raining. Then we got ready to leave for Ken and Sandy's... about 2 and a half hour drive to Mountain Lakes, NJ. Well worth the trip. All the "kids" under 35 "got" to hunt for Easter eggs in the backyard (it was kinda soggy and I did not have the correct shoes on...). We each had to find 12 or we couldn't eat dinner. I was not the oldest. It was quite silly, but fun in the end... Albert ended up standing up on the swing set and point out eggs to the 20-30 year-olds that were being forced into participating... so that made it a bit more interesting. :-P Dinner was very good, as usual... I tried both types of ham and I don't remember which one was which.. but they were very good... I think I liked the pineapple and clove one better. Mom made scalloped potatoes. :-D *yea* And there were yummy green beans with dill... I think I like dill now. It's a miracle! woo! Dessert was amusing, and Albert got sung to, again... in a very off-pitch and scary way... (sorry Jess, it's not you!)... was surprised Albert didn't stick his fingers in his ears.. :-P But I think the chocolate-chocolate bunny cake was memorizing him. :-P There was tons of dessert... and beautiful fresh pineapple that I was inhaling. :-D *yea* Ended up leaving there around 5pm... I finished my book (Gathering Blue, by Lois Lowry) in the car on the way home... I started it when we left. :-) Wonderful book... I can't wait for the third... We stopped at Wendy's on the way home for bathroom and dinner... I wasn't really all that hungry, but I got a kids meal with an Agent Cody Banks toy!!!!!! SO EXCITING! :-P right. Got home around 8. So tired. Got packed up and called Mike and then slept.
This morning I was up around 6:45 again... said good bye to lizzie and showered. Packed up the car and we left for Crossroads (diner place around the corner) at about 7:30. I had the cherry jubilee breakfast pizza and Albert ordered more than he could eat. But it was his ELEVENTH BIRTHDAY so he was allowed. :-P Ate breakfast and drank lots of decent coffee 'til around 8:45 when Albert had to be driven to school (just across the highway). So I left directly from there.... but only after Albert had 5-billion excuses to hug me before I got in the car. :-P I miss everyone already.
So that was my weekend. *yea* I wish I could do fun stuff every weekend without having to pay for it later.
