Easy Weekend

Last night, Nick and I were were channel surfing, and came across Charleton Heston and Yul Brenner in "The Ten Commandments". For those of you who are unfamiliar with this movie, it would classify as an epic. We dialed in around 9PM, and the movie was at the point where Rameses II (Yul) has just figured out that Moses is Hebrew. Moses was raised by Rameses I's sister as her son, and everyone assumed he was egyptian. He was exiled from Egypt, and most assumed him dead. Anyway, by the time 11PM rolled around, we had just reached the 'burning bush' scene, and Moses was about to return to Egypt to lead his people to the promised land. We were rivited, but knew we had to get up in the morning to go to brunch, so we turned in for the night. Please, if you have seen the movie, do not ruin it for us. We plan to NetFlix it and finish watching at a later date. I can't wait to find out how it ends.

830 came mighty early for Nick this morning. He was very tired, but managed to get showered, dressed and in the car to go to Dave and Patsy's house for Easter Brunch. We had a great meal (nick napped) and the kids had a great time. Larry and Joann came as well, because it was their middle daughter's birthday (that would be me). Travis, Kelly, Dalton and Mason and Auntie Dayle were also there. The quiche was fantastic, and I can attest that the ham smelled delicious.

Tonight, Bryan came over and instead of playing the usual game of scrabble, we played a little Wii Tennis. Come to find out, Bry is a pretty aggressive boxer as well. Those poor Miis didn't stand a chance. Nick also played a set of tennis, and although he did not win, he looked great playing.

Tomorrow we have an appt with Dr. Jafari followed by IV chemo, assuming everything looks OK. I think Nick is not far from his first blood transfusion, as his counts have been dropping consistently over the past 3 weeks. Since Larry has donated over 100 pints of blood over the years, we won't feel too bad using a few to make Nick feel better.

Lastly, just want to give a shout-out to Michal Anne in Memphis Tennessee. We miss you sis. While we would rather have you here with us, we are happy for the kids at St. Jude's and their families who will get to meet you and have you be a part of their life.

  1. I've never seen The Ten Commandments, but I'm putting it at the top of my queue.
