Rob's schedule, as you know if you watched my vlog, is such that he works Sunday-Thursday, 9am-6pm, and has Friday and Saturday off. This schedule will hold until he gets called out to a fire, at which point he can be called out for at most two weeks at a time. It was nice having him home again on Friday and Saturday, but of course went by far too quickly. On Friday I worked while he spent some quality time with Le Chien (yeah, I'm wordly), and for the first time we had margaritas on the patio together which was just lovely. On Saturday we took a quickie trip to the ABQ to pick Rob up some new running shoes. I was so excited when Rob suggested we get food and when he agreed to P.F. Chang's. I'm a cheap date.
On Sunday Rob had to shuffle off to work and I had the day to myself, which actually has been pretty neat. I ate a Cadbury Egg for breakfast and also made Rob one kick-ass Easter basket. When he came home he told me that he had seen a coworker with Easter candy, and thought to himself, "I really hope Caitlin makes me an Easter basket. I bet she did." What can I say, the man knows me well.
While Robbie was at work on Easter, I had a couple of drinks and totally "zenned out," as the kids say, on my patio. It was a beautiful day, 63 or so with a slight breeze, and I was just really, really, really happy, sitting there in the sunshine, listening to music and thinking about how great my life is. I know it's sappy but...I don't know. It was just really awesome and was exactly what I needed.
That evening we ate breakfast sandwiches with egg, bacon and pepper jack for dinner. I mean come on, isn't that the perfect Easter dinner? Eggs and pig meat? Anyone?
