catch up

it's been awhile... :)
i feel like there's a lot to write about but nothing that is remotely interesting... :)

we've been busy in the last week or so...mostly going here and there...
Ry's very short spring break (thank you, February snowcation) bought us a little time to head north to visit my parents for a few days... we were going to head to DE to visit Ry's family, too, but our schedules, combined, just didn't allow for a lot of time to see them... so, we all decided to just wait and enjoy a visit in a few weeks...
anyway, we had a nice time in PA...didn't do a whole lot, but that's part of the fun. i really just enjoy spending time with my mom and dad...we don't have to be on the go all the time or anything... :)
we drove back to VA on Wednesday and K and I had a quiet but busy day on Thursday when Ry went back to school for a very short week... :) on Friday morning, we headed up to Washington, DC with intentions of seeing some pretty Cherry Blossoms... however, we were too late... we mostly just got to see some brown petals on the ground... we'll have to head to DC a little earlier next year, i think, in order to take in the pretty flowers! :)
we did get to do some touristy things in DC, though...so that was nice. :) it was a long day with A LOT of walking, though...wow! my feet were killing me when we finally got back to the van to head to dinner... :) i don't know how far we walked, but we were on our feet for a good 6 or more hours...

i just got the pictures from the last few weeks loaded on the computer, and as long as the computer doesn't crash between now and later (been having some issues with good old Dell), i will get them posted and write some more details on the last few weeks... :)

in the meantime, i need to do the piles of laundry that have accumulated and plan our meals for this upcoming week... yep, i think it's back to the "grindstone" with our regular schedules... :) bittersweet, if you ask me...it's kinda sad to go back to a predictable schedule but at least it means that in about 8 more weeks, we'll be saying hello to summer vacation. :) the last week was just a taste of what's to come soon... :)

more later...just wanted to let anyone who reads know that we haven't disappeared... :)
have a wonderful Sunday! :)

Well, you know I'm a faithful reader :) But, I think I know just about everything you just wrote about....So, until my next e-mail....

OK--so, you visited DC and did not give me a call. Hmmm...not sure how I feel about that.
