Just curious what everyone is doing on easter.
I'm going to start cooking on Saturday and cook on sunday.  I think we are going to have a Zombie movie fest after dinner, popcorn and all the snacks.  I know were weird but I love our family nights we scream and laugh and tell each other to shut up the whole time.  Its great!
My family has kinda split up after my mother died but they still show up to eat then leave.  So my children and us always do something out of normal so that they will always remember our holidays.  When I get grandkids its going to be GREAT!!!!!!!

I don't know,  my youngest daughter ( the nurse at Mayo) their family are coming down tonight and they are staying the whole weekend at their Grandparent (wifes parents) house 6O miles away, she did call me yesterday and asked if I was going to be home tomorrow (Friday), I guess they plan on coming down sometime tomorrow to visit but I don't know for how long. My wife (Kind of awkward saying that, but legally she still is until the divorce is finalized) is up at her parents just from bits and pieces of talk, that I have heard I think they are having Easter up there, but I don't know! No one has said anything to me, anyway I guess I will get to see my Granddaughter tomorrow at least for a little while! Allot of my "wifes" family lives just north of us and my "wifes" niece has a daughter the same age as my granddaughted, so my daughter wants  hang out with her cousin.

 This whole thing is really kind of awkward right now, my wife will see allot of the kids and our Granddaughter, because it is all her family up there, and.... well.... maybe tomorrow  I will get to see her for a little while!  As far as the rest of the weekend and Easter????? Who knows? It looks like it will all be happening with my "wifes" family!  Anyway I don't have any family close by, there is not many left anyway! So  I guess this will  be a good time for me to finnish up the inventory of all our belongings, so we can get this property settlement (who get what) finally done! After that is all agreed upon we apply for a court date and get this over with! This is going to be, a rather unusual Easter for me!

I did make Pickled Eggs for Easter though, I put peeled hard boiled eggs in Pickled Beets and leave them for a week to ten days and the white part of the egg turns purple and tastes like the pickled beets! They look great sliced and served for Easter and taste Great too! mmmmm tongue

i'll either go to Easter dinner or I won't.

Oh! How I hate that.

My daugher just exploded at me over this. She said, "Mom, you always
say you can't go but then you do go."

She's very precise about time and social obligations. I guess I raised her that
way. Problem is: I never know if I'm going to be well. After any event I
am absolutely exhausted. I spend so much emotional energy trying to look

I feel angry with my daughter. She has NO idea what I go through. I
shield her from it. Maybe I should let her know the truth about my Chronic
Pain. Maybe I should just stop hiding my pain away. I don't know.

My dad's favorite lunch was pickled pigs feet and butter milk. I'm surprised he
didn't have a recipe for your pickled Aaaaghs, White Beard.


Hope you all have a good tomorrow and a lpd. (As Kara would say) smilewinkgrin

I will be going to my BIL for Easter dinner tomorrow. It will be my first time out (besides appt) and I am looking forward to it. I have been pretty much bed ridden since Oct. with these terrible headaches. I am praying I will feel my best for Sunday. I also want to try and get to church. Easter is a time for a new beginning!!

Happy Easter to all

I am going to my daughter's house for Easter dinner at 2 pm. Hubby is going too. We will be there with daughter, her husband, my five year old granddauhter, Kelly and my five month old granddaughter, Anna. I am looking forward to this.

Tonight, I will go over to my daughter's house to color Easter eggs with Kelly and my daughter Linette. I always enjoy that every year too.

Tomorrow I will go to church with my daughter and her family too. That is, if I'm not in a lot of pain. Today has been a hard day for me. I took a hot bath a while ago and it is getting to be time to take another one. My legs and feet are killing me today. And I had planned to do some sewing. Oh well, tomorrow is another day, I suppose.

Happy Easter to everyone and I hope you all have family to spend it with. If not, get on here and we will write to one another so no one feels alone. OK??

Blessings to all!!

Believe in yourself.  Be kind to fellow humans and animals.  Take time to smell the flowers and the coffee.
And by all means, when you are down, ask me for help.  I will be there.

If I am up in the morning, I will go to church. Then I'll be going to my grandmother's house for our Easter celebration. It will be strange because I usually go to my other grandparents' house in the other end of the state, but my grandmother hurt her ankle, so my grammy is taking over this year. It's actually great for me, because I haven't been to Easter in 3 years, as it was way too far from my school (3hrs from school, 1 1/2 hrs from home), but my grammy's house is just 20 minutes away from my house.
