Lazy Easter Day

We had a very quiet Easter. Nice. John worked in the yard. I read. Johnny left for a little while to play paintball. The only disturbance during the day was when John took Lisa driving. She has her learners permit and we have to take her driving so many hours so she can get her license. I had asked John to put in some time because I despise this so much. I am really terrible about it and feel very tense the whole time. I thought John had much more patience. What was I thinking? When they pulled back in the driveway an hour later I heard all this yelling. I guess John had really been putting Lisa to task and she was at the end of her rope. I've been there. I can relate. He was making her back down our long driveway instead of drive in head first. She just didn't want to do it. John doesn't know when to stop. I tried to mediate but no luck so I went in. 15 minutes after Lisa stomped in and slammed a door they were fine. We all sat down to watch a movie together. It wasn't that good. I fell asleep to be honest. (Dreamer I think it was called.) A few Easters back when we were again alone we watched "Rabbit Proof Fence" which was an excellent movie. After the movie we ATE! We had a nice salad first. My table does look a little sad and empty but it's okay.

and the lasagna which was awesome of course.

I love having a house-full of people but sometimes just my children is very nice. We run around so much in different directions it is rare to spend a day together with no distractions. Of course I only had half my children there but it was still nice.

So now I have to stop procrastinating and go work off all that good food...

Sounds like a nice day except for the driving lesson dust up.

We went walking on the beach yesterday morning and since the water had been rough for a few days there were shells washed up on the beach. We didn't hunt for Easter eggs, but we did hunt for Easter seashells. :)

Sounds like a great day!

The one time my dad took me out for a driving lesson I crashed his car during one of those same push-it-too-far things - I was in driver's ed the next morning.

The studio LOOKED AMAZING!!!! It doesn't now, I'm afraid, but WOWOWOWOWOWOW!!!! Amazing. you're the best ever!

The mp3 player works in the studio. A treat for tomorrow. Plus, the student who hates me is coming tomorrow. I guess. She left word it's easier for her.

We should have a one-day class just for your sisters, their kids, your family...and you can take everything home & fire it. I want to meet everyone -

Happy Easter - glad yours was so great. Hope there's leftover lasagna! :p

Yikes. Reverse driving. I'm still not good at that. If we're sharing nightmare learning to drive stories, mine was the dreaded stick shift. My parents bought me this beat up little escort (smelled like smoke when it rained) and after the first weekend of trying to drive it I said (as I was crying) just take it back. Of course, I kept trying and that little thing took me through high school and my 1 year of college.
