Spring Break at Home

We enjoyed a nice Easter dinner on Sunday...and a nice pile of dishes to wash.  I think we did so many dishes that not only did we use up all the hot water for Sunday, but I also didn't have any hot water on Monday.  That meant a cold shower for me.  Freezing cold.  Freezing cold that made me shudder and swear violently.  The good news was that Matt was able to reset the hot water heater that night and (knock on wood) we were good to go.  Well, until Tuesday night when we got home late and discovered we didn't have hot water AGAIN.  Ugh.  Luckily, Matt was able to reset the hot water heater again (and knock on wood) and we were good to go.  I'm still keeping my fingers crossed.

Glazed ham, asparagus bundles wrapped in bacon, mashed potatoes, corn bread, salad with strawberries, and a Mounds cake for dessert. Yum!

My sister and two of her kiddie-poos came for a visit.  We hung out, went shopping, and saw the new Wizard of Oz movie.  My review:  wait for it to come out on video if you want to see it.  My mom and step dad stopped by and then we all headed over the casino in Battle Creek.  The kids enjoyed the pool and we enjoyed some gambling.  I won a little...enough to cover Matt's losses and I made a new friend.  There was a really, really, really, really (and I mean REALLY) drunk guy at the casino who found me twice and wanted to be my friend.  After we left, my sister hit a jackpot on my favorite slot machine, Sex and the City, and won $600!!!!!!  Yay for her! 

Cyrus enjoyed having people visit...especially when my nephew put his pillow on the couch.

Matt got a new toy this week:  a kayak.  I'm holding out for a pink one.  Preferably one that is sparkly!

Cyrus jumped right up on Matt's lap in the kayak when Matt unwrapped his new toy. It looks like we're going to need a doggie life jacket now!
