Easter hunt and stuff...

I went to an Easter egg hunt with Livie the other day. A friend from church hosted it at her house. Livie was so confused when I told her we were going on an Easter egg hunt because it wasn't dark. I've written about our annual  nite time egg hunts and those are the only egg hunts she's been on. lol She figured out the egg hunt really quickly and left with almost 20 eggs. Then she and Taj dyed eggs and stuff candy into plastic eggs for our nite time hunt that we'll do on Monday. We have to move everything around because Sei works Sunday nite and the older kids will be at the ex's til Sunday nite.  But the eggs are ready to go, yo! Now I just need to round up some flashlites...

While I was at the hunt with Livie there were a group of women talking about divorce. If you were in that group and you're reading this don't think for a second that I took offense to the conversation- I didn't at all. I'm just writing about my observations. The conversation came up because we were talking about Facebook statuses and stuff and how we find out major stuff, like someone is getting divorced, via Facebook. Then they went on to talk about how marriage is like no big deal to some people and people are getting divorced right and left. All that is totally true. But being a divorced woman I also know how easily divorce can come about when only one person is working to make the marriage work. I also know how devastating divorce can be to a family and how you are stuck dealing with crap because of the decision to divorce forever- even if divorce was the right choice. It sucks eggs. I'm kinda down with going back to Biblical laws. Then I would have been a widow instead of a divorcee. :P haha

Monday we'll be celebrating my dad's birthday as well as Tristan's. My dad's was Friday and Tristan's is Tuesday.  I can't believe I'll have a 15 year old. What a trip. And on Friday Isabel will be 11!!! I am blessed to have really good kids. And I'm excited to celebrate these bdays with them!!! I guess I should get moving on gettin' a cake for the party Monday. And now that I'm thinking about it... I have nothing planned for Easter dinner. Sei will be sleeping or leaving for work and Taj and Liv are down with corn dogs or ramen noodles, so I guess there's nothing really to plan. I can't really say that is a bad thing- I don't really like to cook. haha :)

Hope y'all have a wonderful Easter weekend.
