We decided to give the kids a couple of weeks off of school in honor of Easter. Needless to say, they were thrilled. So for the next 2 weeks they will have absolutely nothing to do despite all the toys and video games they have!
Mommy, on the other hand, is actually not really getting that break. I opted to help my beloved with the latest Slurp he’s got going on. I’ll be spending my days researching and doing a bit of editing. Slurp, for those who don’t know, is what we call the non-fiction books my husband writes. He referred to the 1st project he had as his “Super Secret Real Life Project” or “SSRLP” and people noted that looked a lot like “slurp.” Now you know. So this will be his 3rd book. Because of his work schedule, I think I’ll be much more involved with this one as well.
Time to start the water to boil for the eggs this week too. We wanted to find an Easter tree to decorate, much like the Christmas tree tradition, but we couldn’t really find an indoor tree to suit our needs right now. Hopefully next year we’ll be able to do that. We want to set up a tree and decorate it with Easter ornaments and have presents for the kids under it. I thought a palm tree would be appropriate, but can you imagine how hard it would be to put ornaments on something like that? And who has a little 3’ or 4’ decorative fake palm tree? So, more searching I suppose.
We went to check out Kindles this weekend. We found out Target sold them OTC so we thought how cool it was to check them out, do the touchy-feely thing, see it up close and personal. We both walked away feeling … meh. Perhaps because Target is only selling the Kindle2 right now, and not the new Kindle3, I dunno. But we both were hoping to be more impressed for the kind of money Amazon is asking for it. Shouldn’t we have been wowed? Or am I expecting too much for $150? My phone was way less than that and I was a lot more wowed. Apparently more research is required. I was so hoping to be wowed. But maybe it’s me. Do you have a Kindle? What are your thoughts?
My weekend was pretty nice, I hope yours was too!
And a blessed Shabbat Shalom to you too, in honor of Passover tonight.
