Easter Sunday

I haven't really had the time to write anything much here of late (as you noticed). This past month, my department at work has been short-handed every now and then due to sickness, and vacations. This all leads into me having to help fill other positions, as well as my own, and giving me 12+ hour days. So from getting up at 5:30-6 am and and getting home 8:30-9pm, there isn't much time for anything. The kids are usually in or on the way to bed. I sometimes will go out and have a beer or two to wind down, or just plain crash into bed.

But today is Easter. Of course, the best day for me to sleep in, I awaken early. The Wife and boys will be headed to church in a couple hours. Our family had gone over to Reverend Mother's for Easter dinner there with her and Preacher Tom. Afterwards played a couple rounds of Apples To Apples. Seemed everyone had a good time. This evening we will be headed over to the MIL's for dinner with her. Or at least The Wife will be with the boys. Haven't made up my mind if I want to go.

This week also brings out some other good things. The Wife and I celebrate our 25th Wedding Anniversary this Wednesday. We are leaving town that morning and headed north to Sedona for a couple of nights, before returning home. The Daughter is coming up from Morenci to stay at home with the boys, to get them to school, etc. The Wife and I each bought silver rings to exchange on our anniversary. It isn't much, but it was something we both thought would be nice. Getting out of town and to be able to relax a couple days is the big present.

Still a couple months from schools closing for the year. The oldest son will be graduating this May, and then off to college in the fall. He is not clear yet as to where, but won't be a regular university. He wants to get some of the pre-req classes done at a Jr college or similar trade school. The middle son will be moving up to high school. The youngest into 5th grade. They grow too fast....

Not much to say about now. Thinking about trying to lay back down and catnap or something....
