Jumpin' Jellybeans!

I'm still alive. I haven't given up on the blog. I've had a very long weekend.

A very long weekend without a connection to al-Gore's Internets!

The younglings and I left for an Easter visit with my folks on Thursday morning. (Where's Husband? Overseas.) Thursday a.m. was a mess; snow, slippery roads, windy and colder than a mother-in-law's kiss. Buses were stuck on slick roads and there was a traffic backup, but we managed to get out of our OH town. Once we got north of Youngstown, however, all bets were off. White-out conditions, people.

But we made it to Liberalville Erie, and once I got the kids safely settled with my parents, I checked in to a motel room. Yes, for three nights I was alone and enjoyed every silent minute of it.

I was going to try to go to the funeral home Thursday night. A classmate from high school passed away, and while I sent flowers, I didn't think that was the most appropriate time and place for a class reunion.

Good Friday found me at the mall with my friend Cowboy Boots. She was nice enough to help me look for a dress to wear to a wedding in June. And then we just HAD to go to the new casino! It was like being in Reno; I didn't want to leave! I didn't want to stop smoking!

(Yes, I smoked. Shut up.)

On Saturday I took the kids to the in-law's. That was a short visit for two reasons: 1) a major migraine set in, rendering me useless; 2) there were six dogs running around. I am NOT a dog person. I managed to be able to see (I get that "flash bulb" effect when I have a migraine) well enough to get the kids back to my mother's. I then hastened to my motel room, whereupon I took a very hot shower and fell into bed.

And then today, Easter Sunday, my parents took the younglings and me out to brunch. Then the kids and I made the journey home.

Not a very exciting weekend, but then, there isn't too much one can do when it's freezing and there's the dreaded lake effect snow to deal with.

So now I have a mountain of laundry and my shoulders are killing me from driving, but it's just so damn good to be home that I don't care!
