I hope everyone who celebrates Easter had a wonderful holiday weekend. Ours was on the quiet side and for the first time in thirty years, the Easter Bunny didn’t stop by. I suppose because there were no children here. Mollie is on spring break and she took off with her teaching partner, her partners two daughters and their grandmother for a girl’s trip to New York. They will meet up with LJ and Collin at some point for a good visit and Mollie has a cousin there also so they are planning to go out one night. They saw Wicked Saturday night and that seems to have been a hit with all ages.
Nick has this week off too so we planned to follow in Mollie’s footsteps and head to the Big Apple ourselves. Mollie flies home Tuesday and we fly up on Wednesday, causing Collin to ask, “Has there been a falling out that we don’t know about?” We’re honestly not trying to avoid Mollie, it just worked out this way.
At the moment, it seems that Mollie has taken all the warm sunny weather for her trip and is leaving us with rain in the sixties – grrrrr… but we’ll survive. LJ asked if there was a play we’d like to see and there was! We now have tickets for ‘Beautiful’. I can’t wait, I grew up on Carole King’s music and all who have seen this say it’s incredible.
I know this trip will be good for us, we haven’t been to see the boys since their wedding in 2013, we’ve seen them, but they’ve come to us. I’m not a traveler. I know that’s what retirement is supposed to be all about, but I’m a home body. Should I ever be put on house arrest my first thought would be ‘Thank God!’. That doesn’t mean I haven’t loved every trip I’ve ever been on, I have. But I’m a hermit at heart and I love my cave.
Don’t know if I’ll have my computer or not, but I’ll be around here one way or another.
