Well… what’s a girl to do who has been layed up since Friday with a bag of ice on her back and shoulder-blade between chiropractor appointments? I am under Doctors orders to not lift, strain, work out…
Well of course I am going to READ.
I did make a dent in the reading over the weekend which was actually…. nice. With the weather still cool and rainy it was not a big sacrifice to hang out in the house. We have no big Easter plans, other than College Son is coming home this morning – WOO HOO!!!!! And we get the day to hang out and he goes back to Mankato tomorrow.
We used to have the Easter Basket hunt when the boys were real young. As they got older… it became a neighborhood scavenger hunt. All the neighbors have been here since I was growing up including my aunt who lives two doors down. The boys would be given a clue at the house and they would have to do whatever it said to get the next one… such as:
“Go over to John and Peggy’s and hop on one foot while asking if you can borrow an egg.”
Of course all the neighbors were in on it and they would give them the next clue until they came tot he final clue which would give them hints to the “basket” whereabouts. Of course the “basket” itself was always improvised as I did not like the traditional baskets….
One year the candy and goodies were in baseball caps, one year football helmets, once plastic totes filled with their favorite trading cards and tickets to a Weird Al concert (which was their first concert!) and then one year – they were new 10 speed bikes hiding in my aunts garage.
As I type this up… I am filled with fond memories of having the kids here. At this moment they would have been all over me waiting for their first clue. 😀
I miss that.
Do you have any fun Easter traditions?
I am still hurting, but not as bad. I have another appointment tomorrow but am really hoping to get to the gym tomorrow – even if it is only the treadmill. The first big bike ride of the year is next Sunday – the Ironman…..and I am excited about it, praying for good weather… and of course none of this back/arm stuff. I really want to do the ride. 😀
Have a SUPER AWESOME HAPPY EASTER!!!!
