Easter was about the same as usual around here -- which is to say, I am glad it's over.
As per usual, dh didn't want to make any plans in case his dad wanted us to join him, stepMIL & some of stepMIL's kids for dinner. I understand. He's in his 80s; he's not going to be around forever, and he wants to have his own family around him (BIL often has commitments to SIL's family). The problem being we generally don't get "the call" until the last minute. (This year, it arrived at 9 a.m. on Easter morning.) I know it's just FIL being forgetful, but I can't help but feel like a bit of an afterthought sometimes.
Then we came home -- and when I scrolled through my Facebook feed, there was an endless stream of photos of happy families with adorably dressed children with Easter baskets and chocolate and coloured eggs.
To add further insult to injury, Aunt Flo decided to show up. AND it snowed overnight. Just enough to coat the ground and rooftops, and it disappeared pretty quickly, but still... :p I am so DONE with this winter. :p (It didn't help that Facebook showed people in some of the southern States wearing shorts, lol.)
And even before this weekend, I started seeing Voldemort Day displays in the stores. (Voldemort Day = my pet name for That Day in May That Shall Not Be Named.)
Bah humbug. :p
