At least we're now officially on Spring Break. Macauley and I cashed in all our loose change at the big green CoinStar machine after the party ($23.79!) and used our greenbacks (sensing the theme?) to buy some books for our trip to Kansas City. We'll be spending a few days at the Embassy Suites on the Plaza, shopping and doing some kid stuff with our friends the Turners. We hope to see Lane a bit before she leaves on another business trip to Denver, and we'll meet up with my parents who are camping in nearby Lawrence so Macauley can head home with them for a few days.
So I've got piles of laundry and some packing to do--and those stains could probably use another vigorous scrub--but Macauley and I are going to settle in and watch Beezus & Ramona. Macauley saw it in the theatre (and already warned me about a sad pet moment but reminded me that it's just a movie and not real) but I read the books when I was young and want to (avoid chores and) see it for myself.
