#MicroblogMondays: Easter

This year, I actually found myself grateful I didn't have kids for the Easter holiday. Friday, I spent most of the day cramming for a test in my math class. To say I am stressed over this class is an understatement.

Saturday, Josh asked me why I didn't do any egg hunts with the nephews this year. I told him that no one invited me, and since I was so busy with school, I didn't make the effort to invite myself.

Most of the time, I have to make myself the 3rd wheel. But I'm with my nephews, so I don't mind. But this year, with all of the extra stress from school, I was actually glad to be able to skip some of the holiday madness.

I still made a small gift for each nephew. This year, I found a way to turn a beach towel into a basket, which I filled with a few small toys.

Josh and I also exchanged baskets. I think that's my favorite tradition. Its our way of saying we are a family all on our own. We also decided to stay home and have a quite dinner by ourselves.

  1. i love your tradition of exchanging baskets! How wonderful. Good luck on the test!

  2. Sometimes you need the quiet celebration. And that is the thing with holidays -- it should be about your needs as well as other people's wants. I'm glad you two exchange baskets so you get some chocolate (I hope) too.

  3. The freedom not to celebrate something sometimes - or to do it in our own quiet way - is important too.

  4. I'm really glad that you and Josh got to celebrate Easter in your own way. The baskets for your nieces and nephews are adorable.
