Easter Upon Us

Scott said to me today, "I am really happy with our home, our family and our life." I coughed in response. I have been sick all week and most recently a lovely cough and earache have added themselves to my myriad of miserable symptoms. I can barely hear anything because of the ear infection. But, truly, what have I got to complain about? My life is LUSH compared to many, yet I find myself a little melancholy today, the day before Easter.

Easter comes as a celebration for Christians of a risen Lord, a time for joy and rebirth, a time to take stock and clean up before Spring is sprung and the heat of summer swelters. But here I am sitting at the computer feeling melancholy.

I finished some projects and took a bath, but still felt melancholy.

I tried to rest on the couch, but Caden called, so I fed him and he slept for a little while and daddy had the other kids in the garage...still melancholy.

Then it hit me. I have been looking forward to something for a long time. I have been looking forward to Spring Break...and it's almost over!!! And there are no more holidays for Scott for a loooong time. It's that feeling that the happiness is almost over that is tugging at my mind and heart. So, I better get out of this funk and go do something fun before our time is up!

No more moping. I think I'll go get some Easter basket goodies for the kids and help my hubby in the garage. Oh, and it sucks to be on a diet during Easter time. OK, Lord, I'm sorry for my pity party. Back to the grind, with a joyful heart and a better attitude!

I have a pretty sweet smoker's cough going myself right now and I don't smoke. I hope things brighten up for you. Baby Caden is sooo cute with all that hair. I want to see photos of your kids in their Easter clothes--so glad someone else loves dolling the kids up for the holidays!

I hope you are feeling better! By the way, I would love to trade kiddos to run.
