Hi all - I just wanted to let you all know that our Easter holiday was good. We had our ham - DF won a ham at the grocery store so maybe HAM for Mother's day? And.......even though we aren't supposed to see him for a month due to regulations (which are stupid for foster families) Dudes foster family stopped by just long enough for us to give Dude his Easter basket. Times have changed - I used to buy little fun things and now it's underwear, razors and deodorant! But he appreciated it very much. And there wasn't a ton of candy in the basket - sorta did a one of each kind for everyone this year. (Didn't want to get Dude in a sugar meanie mood for the fosters) lol Seems all is going well - he's working odd jobs and baby sitting. He actually LOVES babysitting. He's such a sucker for little girls. (They all say he's a honey - 3 and 4 year olds!!) lol. I like this business of NOT thinking nor dreaming about a holiday and just letting what happens; happen. Then being appreciative for the day. I didn't think I'd get to see him at all - and I did even if it was only for 4 or 5 minutes it was a chance to see him. Dinner went well, we cleaned up, took a nap - took advantage of free HBO and watched a couple movies and just relaxed. First time in a LONG time for us. Hugs Hope your day was as enjoyable. I did have a cute chuckle. I have a girlfriend who is Jewish but for some reason she hasn't told them at work. Her boss gave everyone Easter baskets and she looked at me and said "What am I supposed to do with this?" I said 'OH that's right you....." and she cut me off and said "Don't believe in the EASTER bunny." I said "well you have PMS don't you? Use it for that!" After a minute she just laughed and said - I guess it's all in how you look at it. And I said "HEY I have a BOX made hands so big/so wide - that basket is nice - you can carry it with you easier."
