I guess you could say I took a little bit of my own “spring break” from blogging…
And sometimes you need to, to recharge those brain cells, the body, and of course, at this time of year, the soul. Don’t worry, I’m not going to go all sermon-ish on you, but I do have to tell you about my amazing weekend in Hershey (where the in-laws live). They’re awesome too. Like any marriage, it took a while to get to know them, and vice verse, but I think the “guards” are down now that it been a few years, and I thoroughly enjoy our visits.
I was sick last Wednesday and Thursday, so that’s what really began the lapse in posts. I think allergies prompted a migraine, and if I don’t catch those suckers in time, they get to be bad. So I was down for the count. I learned my lesson, allergy medicine in the morning, every morning, until the pollen count goes down, way down.
Anyway, the office was closed Friday for the Easter holiday, so we planned to head to Hershey Thursday night if I was up to it. I wasn’t. And it’s a good thing. One of the roads we take to Hershey was closed for two hours Thursday evening. I can’t even and don’t want to imagine the backup of evening commute traffic combined with holiday traffic in the evening combined with a major interstate being shut down for two hours. So I look at this way, I was supposed to be sick. At any rate we headed off Friday morning, and traffic wasn’t bad at all. We took our dog Zeke with us.
Friday was a day of relaxation, and celebration. Friday was my grandparents-in-law Sixty-Third Wedding Anniversary! Amazing! My MIL, FIL, husband, and grandparent-in-law all celebrated together by having a feast of a lunch at home and then dessert. We played rummikub (one of their favorite games), I squeezed in a quick nap, and my mo ther-in-law and I even went over to the Hershey Outlets and shopped for a bit – I was impressed with my deals too! I managed to get two very pretty dresses on clearance from White House Black Market (a store I love, but usually can’t afford to shop in) for seventy dollars. I could only fin pictures of one of them on WHBL’s website… this one screams Crimson (if you know me in person, I know you’d agree!).
Anyway, we picked up dinner at Jon’s favorite sub/pizza shop, and had an a delicious dinner, the three of us, as my father-in-law was working that evening (more on where he works in a bit).
I was still feeling a bit washed out, tired, and out of it, so we went to bed around 8:30. Yup, that confirms it, I’m getting O-L-D. I’m visiting family, and I go to bed at 8:30, I didn’t even make it to 9:00. Oh well.
Next stop….Part II.
