The Boyfriend took great pleasure in shopping for, putting together, and then hiding eggs for our front yard hunt today. He used to do this with his ex and her teenaged kids and I could tell he really missed it. And it went really well. Bobby shared with his little brother and nobody stumbled in my sloped yard and poked an eye out on a succulent.

...and then after the BF went to work I took the kids on a lengthy outing to a canyon hike in Malibu. It was a gorgeous day and I just wanted to get as much of it as I could.
Tomorrow Theo starts three day preschool. It is the first week in ages I don't have to prepare for taxes, birthday parties, random band stuff or Easter. I can finally focus on the (much neglected) business, finish up home stuff (sell furniture, paint walls, hang pictures), and heck, maybe even relax a little. Woo!
