Caught up!

Hey everyone,

I'm taking this post to catch up on all things that are going on.

Last Saturday: My hubby and I went to see Gnomeo and Juliet. It was everything I expected and more. It had a couple of adult jokes (no worse than Shrek), and had a good balance. The movie used a lot of music from the 70's. John commented that the writers must have been overly obsessed with gnomes. I agree, and 70's It was incredibly cute and very creative. I recommend it! :)

Easter Sunday: Our church is about an hour away and since we were already traveling to my great-grandparents, we were unable to attend the Easter service. :( So I listened to worship music while doing my cooking for the big lunch. I made my vegetable casserole and a strawberry shortcake (that took forever!) We arrived at my great-grandparents---had prayer and ate a big delicious lunch! We don't have any children of Easter egg hunting age (except for my little cousin, Kylie and she wasn't there.) Everyone is looking at me to have the next one, but I'm in no hurry! ;) So I didn't witness any Easter egg hunting this year. Hubby did get me a big jar of jellybeans (my favorite!) to share with everyone. So we spent the day enjoying good food and family. We ended the day by watching "Veggie Tales: Twas the Night Before Easter." It was really cute. I didn't grow up in church, so all things Veggie Tale are new to me. I may be an adult, but I still enjoy a good cartoon, especially one with a good message!

This week has been spent cleaning, school stuff, and volunteer stuff. I had a meeting with the volunteer coordinator at the adult daycare. It went really well. If everything gets processed in time, I should start as early as next week! :) I have a meeting with my advisor next week to do some paperwork and get more information on the program. I unfortunately, have to wait until June to register. It stinks, and I have to pay a fee:/ Oh well! My friend also gave me some info about a possible job opening, so looking into that as well. After a bit of a break from things, it seems that my life is about to get busy again. It feels good! :)

***Last night there was some bad storms in my neck of the woods. I'm thankful that my family and friends are safe. Many have lost their lives, please keep these families in your thoughts and prayers.***

So you are all now caught up on things! I hope to get some pictures of the garden today and post an update tomorrow. You wouldn't believe how fast everything is growing!

21. Would you rather be a worried genius or a joyful simpleton?

This is a tough one. I'm very much a worrier so it would be nice to live joyfully, but I also value my intelligence....hmmm...I don't know if I can choose.
