Hoppy Easter

Today was interesting and quite different than the norm. I was up early for a Sunday and wasn’t exactly sure what to do with all my excess time. I normally plan on getting up with just enough time to finish whatever reading I need to do and to get ready for church. With my latest resolve to get up and get going in the mornings though I ended up with almost two hours in which I had nothing I “needed” to do. It was great. I ended up reading and having some time to get caught up with some other things. I even managed to have lunch, something that I can’t remember doing for some time now.

Church was good. We learned to watch our sarcasm, be true and to keep moving forward as the job isn’t done until our Heavenly Father says it is. The fat lady singing doesn’t mean anything in this show. Alyssa and Stephanie sang a great song as well. I can’t believe we’re going to loose both of them in the next month!

I ended up coming home after church for Easter dinner. It was weird, but seemed like the thing to do nonetheless. It was good to be home for it though since we so rarely seem to actually have dinner together. I tried checking into the Murrieta net from home, but I couldn’t hear anyone come back. Maybe they heard me, but who knows. We’re working on moving the net to the repeater which should make it easier for everyone to get on board. After trying the radio and watching Matthew loose his new boomerang in a tree, I decided it was time to head up to the Dowden’s since I said I would be there. I probably wouldn’t have gone if I hadn’t of told Sister and Brother Dowden that I would be there and then Lauren.

I hung out for branch prayer, took a few pictures and then took off to get home at a reasonable time. It never ceases to amaze me how long it takes to really get ready for bed sometimes. I was home at 9:15 and yet I won’t be in bed much before 11, if at all. And all I’ve done was made a few comments on facebook, some text messaging and writing to Tara. I guess instead of talking about not making it to bed, I should stop talking and get there, so I’m going to go put the finishing touches on my letter and get myself to bed so I’m ready for the fun week ahead.
