Hippity Hoppity, Easter's on its way...

Posted 02 April 2010 - 04:21 AM

I know we get these every major holiday, so I felt a compulsion to start one for Easter - what are YOUR plans for the weekend?

Tomorrow, the kids and I will be starting our two hour trek to my sister's house for the big family dinner and our annual kill-or-be-killed quest for plastic eggs full of money (my parents fill 10 eggs with cold, hard cash and hide them in ridiculous places every year.... we, the full-grown, adult children have been known to knock each other down in mud puddles to get the highest paying eggs). Saturday night, the kids will barely sleep, waiting for an overgrown, candy-laden bunny to make his appearance in our neighborhood.

Sunday morning, after the mass chaos that is children with Easter baskets, we'll be heading out for Sunrise service, followed by breakfast cooked by the church youth group, on to church for the kids' annual Easter program, then to my mother's for dinner.

I love holidays. :)

Wow BenignDesign sounds like you're going to be busy.

For my, today, I work, hopefully a half day, then go get the rest of the essentials for Minicoder's party. Saturday is Minicoder's FIRST birthday, so his grandparents (minus the people from my family) will be there, and a couple others. Then on Sunday, I think we are going to our old church after giving Minicoder and his cousin more crap to play with.

My plans for that day are nil. Obviously I'm not going to go to church.

Grandparents are back from Florida, so I'm heading back to Mom & Dad's for a small get together.

See friends that I haven't seen a long time. Probably head for the church, I'll wait outside while they do their thing and then FOOD.

Will be doing the church thing as well. After that will come home, have dinner with my room-mates and then have my fisrt class of Coke in 40 days. Being Catholic, try and observe the idea of Lent. Was a toss up between Coke and chocolate this year. Coke lost the coin toss. My room-mate's mom will be coming for dinner. Was a toss up between having turkey or ham. Got out voted on the turkey though. :(

I always feel bad for the Catholics during Lent. Poor bastards. I've spent the last 40 days eating whatever I wanted, drinking whatever I wanted and doing whatever I wanted with little-to-no religion-based feelings of guilt.

If they can abstain from their favorite things for 40 entire days, they are better people than I.

I didn't give up anything for lent this year (I grew up Lutheran, they observe lent). The last couple years I have done all soda, and all chocolate. I am addicted to chocolate, so that was amazingly hard.

Give up breathing. Now that's a challenge.
