Got it done. :)

A stop at Twistee Treat after picking up the kids after date night. (Ollie had a Dum Dum sucker since we're keeping him away from dairy.) :)

I went to an optometrist this morning and found out my eye did get scratched. I'm already doing better, but he put me on an antibiotic ointment to make sure I don't get an infection while it heals. So glad it wasn't anything serious!

For date night, Eric and I ate at Chipotle and then went shopping at JCPenney. Eric felt bad when we walked away with several things for him, and none for me. But he got some killer deals, and it was fun. :)

Definitely not a flattering photo! But this gives an idea of what my left eye looked like just before bed tonight. I was out working in the yard this morning and got some tree bark or a bit of dried leaf in my eye. By evening when I was at a stake camp meeting, my eye was so red and swollen. Eric gave me a blessing and I got some professional advice from my sister's brother-in-law that helped me feel comfortable waiting to see a doctor until tomorrow.

"[Out]side?!" Ollie had already been enjoying the spring weather too much to be slowed down by a random snowfall.

The power went out just as we were about to cook dinner, so Eric pulled out the portable gas stove and cooked the flat bread...with a helper. :)

Both of us reading in bed--hardly ever happens.

Henrik with his buddies Tyler and Mason at the Primary Easter activity.
Henrik is just the friendliest kid! And he is such a hoot! It's been so fun to see how he has adjusted to going to Primary after just turning 3. He learns the words to the songs better than any other kids there, and he has lots of enthusiasm. :) Last Sunday one of my friends in the Primary Presidency stopped me in the hall at church and said that they had just been playing a game during singing time where someone was supposed to guess the word that came next in the hymn "I Stand All Amazed" that the kids have been learning. It wasn't Henrik's turn, but when the selected child didn't answer, Henrik called out the right word! I am amazed at him! And I love hearing him sing.
