Spring Break Week - Busy, Busy!
Last week was Easter, and we traveled to Rochester, NY, to visit my family (some of them, anyway). It was a short trip, bookended by two long drives! We had a good weekend, though, and I managed quite well. We stayed at a hotel this time because my father's wife (where we usually stay) is in the middle of selling her house. We managed to squeeze in most of a day with her, dinner with my aunt and uncle (who we missed on the last trip), breakfast with a friend I have known since first grade (!), and a lovely Easter celebration on Sunday featuring our traditional Ukrainian foods and a small group of family. So, that was a short week at home and a very busy few days away!
This week has been spring break for both of my sons, but they have outgrown the week-long trips with mom and dad (unfortunately). Monday was super-busy, getting our college son back to his campus apartment (after refilling all our meds for the week - a 90-minute job!) and getting our younger son and his friends set up with our camper at a local state park for a few days. We booked the campsite for the week, and he and his friends enjoyed the first half. Today, my husband and I will head down there to spend our couple of days at the park. I do miss the days of all of us vacationing together, but I appreciated spending Easter weekend together and am looking forward to a quiet weekend with my husband. I think we need to install a revolving door here at the house!
Whew. Like, I said - busy, busy! Since rain was forecast for today, I'm trying to finish up some work this morning, and we will leave after my nap this afternoon.
Back home on Sunday, and back to a more normal schedule, with everyone at school and work, and five whole QUIET days to myself next week! So, I hope to resume a more normal blogging schedule, too. Enjoy the weekend.
