Easter love

My youngest daughter came in to me today while I was getting ready for work. She informed me that she gave one of my teenagers her Easter candy. I asked her why she did that, and she replied "because I am sweet." She needs a little work in the humility department, but what can I say?

Also, I will point out my world's greatest mom moment. I didn't get to dye eggs with my kids because someone (who will remain nameless, right Ryan?) forgot to boil the eggs while I was at work, even after being reminded. But it was ME that insisted on returning egg coloring that Ryan bought because I was SURE we already had some. In my absence, he went to color eggs with the kids and there wasn't any. It was late, so we waited until today.

Yes, that is right, we colored eggs late on Easter day, and then hid them and let them find them. It wasn't my most prepared Easter Day. Oh well, I did remember to buy candy. :) That's all the kids will remember, right?

In loving memory.....

It seems weird to not have Cora roaming around the house, licking up things the little ones spilt on the ground. I really miss her. I am sad, but I know that she died knowing that she was loved......

RIP beloved dog.....

I am very sad to say that our largest dog, Cora, passed away today. She had a stroke and died at the age of 9 months. It was the saddest thing to watch her and know there was nothing I could do to stop it. I felt so awful. She was a beautiful dog, and she was a great pet. She will be greatly missed, and may she rest in peace......

Can you feel the love?

I was reading a family newletter, recently, that informed family that the grandparents just celebrated their 63rd wedding anniversary. (Or sixty-something, I forget.) My loving husband and I had the following conversation:

ME: "Honey, isn't that cute? Just think, if we live long enough, we will be in our nineties on our 60th wedding anniversary."
him: "Hunh, we will be lucky if we make it to our eighth anniversary."

That is this September, by the way. Men are such jerks.
