He is Risen!

He is Risen!  He is Risen indeed!  Happy Easter to all of you.  Ours has started off with heavy rain – pretty typical for us.  You can almost always count on rain on Easter and the 4th of July.  However, we don’t have snow like many of you in the Midwest.  Or floods like my parents in Missouri.  They live within a few hundred yards of a river, and the waters came up to just across the road from them.

I have to admit Easter sneaked up on me this year.  I missed Palm Sunday because of my shoulder (more about that later) and it dawned on me yesterday that I had made no preparations for Easter dinner.  So I did the only thing a self respecting woman could do – I picked up the phone and made reservations.  Hubby and I will take Allen to the CPO club on base for Easter brunch and then we will head off to our respective churches for Easter services.

I’m scrounging around in my brain trying to figure out an interesting photo to post, and I just cannot come up with anything!  Maybe hubby could take a picture of me with my nose in a book.  That’s where it’s been most of the week.  I have a textbook I have to finish before Wednesday and it’s boring, boring, boring!  In the syllabus the professor said the book was an easy read, but she didn’t mention that it would put you to sleep.  There probably won’t be much interesting this next week either.  I have my class on Wednesday and the rest of the week will be spent trying to get ahead on my assignments so I can relax while I’m in Orlando.  There’s a paper due after the class and I really want to get it done before I go.  But I promise to make up for it by posting lots and lots of cute granddaughter pictures while I’m there.

I did go to the doctor this week and I did indeed do damage to my shoulder.  I have a shoulder separation, or a tear of the acromioclavicular junction.  A football injury!  At least that’s what I’m telling everyone.  Much better than telling them you tripped over your own big feet.  The good news is that it doesn’t require surgery, but that’s the bad news as well because there really is nothing else they can.  I have some exercises to do, but it’s just going to hurt for a while.  I may not be picking up the wee ones much, but I can certainly snuggle on the couch with them!

  1. Bummer. Hope you’re not in too much pain. You’re able to knit?

    I remember the wonderful feeling of finishing up my degree after many years of working on it part time. Soon it will be over and you’ll look back and wonder how you ever had the time to do that.

    Have you told your boss that having a degree translates into an immediate raise in salary?

  2. We’ve come to B’Ham specifically for Easter church. Nothing like it at home. We followed it with brekkie at the Mount Bakery. The Creme Brulee was my post-Lenten treat.

    Fess up, you were really playing football 😉 When I broke my ankle in June of 8th grade, my father suggested I tell people I was skiing in Chili.

    Happy Easter!

  3. Take care of that shoulder. Shoulders can take a long time to heal. I got an impingement one year from shoveling snow, which is not nearly as serious as your problem, and I didn’t really feel completely better for two years–and it put a damper on my lap swimming for a while.

  4. Sorry about your shoulder. Like Marjorie said, shoulders can take awhile to heal because you are laways usign them for one thing or another. Hope that it improves quickly though! The embroidery came today. I’m not home, but when I do, I will email you. It’s perfect! LOVE it! :o)
