An Easter April Fools Day all in one. This probably doesn't happen too often. I could imagine that things could get pretty crazy with the holiday combination. I am picturing lots of little littles opening empty Easter eggs, or eggs with rocks, or (fake) bunny poop... because April fools Ha. That would so be pretty fun to watch and is totally something that I would (and might) do. Would that make me a jerk? Maybe a little but I think it might be worth it.
The week has been and up and down kind of week. Officially 2 years since Sean passed so I have been a little quite, sad, and maybe a little bitchy. Doesn't help that it was just an annoying week in general. Like I almost broke my leg with a 35 lb weight at the gym, but not really. (Word of advice, don't drop heavy shit on your leg, it doesn't feel good and hurts all week). Had to get the oil change and ended up waiting for 2 hours. And I guess I am starting to get spring allergies making me feel heady and tired and Oh, I had to go to the dentist. Still no camera so pictures are are still all off my phone which is driving me nuts and I still haven't finished the taxes that promised myself that I would have done before April 1...Ok, I am done bitching.
But it definitely was not all bad. We had dinner with Shannon and got to harass Jackson for a little while. I won a bag of literal shit (compost) from a library raffle. Then there was farm share pickup where we talked spring greens with the farmers because we are all getting a little tired of the roots and very excited for spring. I did some seed planting and cleaned up the yard a bit. The mr and I have been taking some pretty good walks and trying to embrace any nice weather that we can. I talked to Barb about talking to her plants to keep them alive and while Mark was home for the weekend I got to harass him about applying for jobs where he is expected to wear short shorts and be a prick..... I think got some joy in harassing people this week.
Then it was Moms birthday. (HAPPY BIRTHDAY MOM) The whole family came over and I made a birthday dinner and cake and cupcakes. The cake was for mom (blueberry coffee cake), who I know well enough to know that she was going to want to take half of it home so I made cupcake too. Those were basically for the little so I made them very neon pink. Shannon hid some candy filled eggs in the yard to keep the littles busy (for like a second) and we all just basically had one big dance party because that's what we do. After dinner we all headed down to the YMCA for the annual pick up basketball game in honor or Sean with all of Sean's friends. A bunch of younger dudes all getting a little older, playing a pretty intense and sweaty game of ball while all the littles and maybe some of the adults (Erin) proceeded to eat their weight in candy. This after all the cake they had just consumed. (The sugar highs were getting intense.). There was a lot of emotions, but mostly it was a lot of fun and was really good to see everyone.
And then we went home to the trashed house with pasta and cake all over. Like for real everywhere. I don't know how the littles managed to smear pink frosting BEHIND and UNDER the couch, but they did and I am never going to let them eat in my house again. All food outside from now on. I then spent half of my day yesterday cleaning up after it all. Pink frosting and pee because apparently there are some boys that have a hard time aiming into the toilet. Fun stuff.
Now it is Easter and I am not quite sure whats going on. I know that I am needed to fill (or not fill, or fill with (fake) poop) eggs and then hide them at some point this morning, but other then that..... There are things and people and Easter stuff, but I am not putting any pressure on myself to participate in anything. I am feeling a bit antisocial and could use quite day. I might just stay home and plant more seeds and pretend that it is not going to get mother f-ing cold out again next week and so I can pack away the last remaining bits of winter. And maybe bunny proof the garden because the bunnies have been hopping around a little to close to my garden beds these days an I am not particularly fond of sharing my food with them.What better way to spend Easter then to keep the bunnies away. Ha. Maybe when we get chickens back there they bunnies will just stay on the other side of the fence. I'll figure it out one way or another.
Have a Happy Easter April fools.
