My blog was ready for Easter before my house was. I intended to get the house Easter ready as soon as I got back home today, but as they say, "the best laid plans of mice and men often go awry!". As I'm sure I mentioned at some point in an earlier blog, I had horrible back pain from about November to January. I had just noticed the other day that I have probably only medicated myself about once in the last 4 weeks. Well, I bent over to pick up Lola today to put her in the car and immediately was hit with horrible back pain again. I took some of my Excedrin Back pain meds on the way home and they didn't phase it a bit. I managed to get into the house and lay on the couch with Lola for most the afternoon, but I have to say that I was still in pretty bad pain. I went to my medicine cabinet and dug out some Norflex from like 8 years ago. I took one of those and it is feeling a little better, so I decided that since I don't have too many Norflex left, it may be now or never for the Easter decorations, so I hopped to it.
I was not feeling well enough to get ALL of my Easter decorations out (you probably won't be seeing my Bunny Village out this year), but I did manage to get some out. Here are a few photos of some of the decorations... I couldn't bore you with every single decoration.

And this has nothing to do with Easter, but while in Nocona, I of course did a little shopping at Dolly's. I'm still contemplating whether to buy something that I found there for my coffee table, but I did make my mind up and purchase a new kitchen rug. I have my fingers crossed that Lola doesn't eat this one (she has eaten every rug I really like and of course leaves the ones I don't love alone altogether!)
