No Particular Place To Go

Happy Easter to all of you. I link Easter to the prompt of no particular place to go because Easter this year was at home. Life is about change and my life has had changes just like we all go through. The family Easter ritual was to eat at my fathers house. Dad getting older decided that was just too much so we started going out to Easter brunches. Change can be hard but it made sense and we all acclimated to this change. Then I married and Easter was spent at my in-laws home or brunch with my side of the family. Thirteen years married then divorced, life changed again and now I could do Easter at my own home. The caveat was that each year either myself or the children's dad had the Easter holiday. This was just like every other holiday, we switched off every other year. Change is hard but my children and I acclimated to it once again. Such is life.

Let's come to this year, this Easter of 2012. No particular place to go is not such a bad thing you know, in fact it is a surprise blessing. OK, so this year is not an Easter with the kids but I acquired a running list of new hobbies that I look forward to and enjoy----

I had an Easter this year I won't soon forget  A stellar dinner with twin sister and best friend. Walks with the dogs and sissy in our neighborhood with lots of sunshine.  How wonderful life is, it is just different now and that is a good thing. Truth be told, I love being a single mom with no man to take care of.   Happy Easter to you and yours--------

  1. we do the out too brunch thing now too, as it's just my husband and I and the boys and gramma. Otherwise, I'd be doing all the work with no help...nope.

  4. I, like you, never have any particular place to go on the holidays. But am so glad you were able to spend time with your sister and best friend!

  5. Sounds like you had my kind of holiday. No particular place to go pleases me. I'd rather be home than anywhere else on earth...

  7. Don't know how I missed this one. Gotta check my readers list, something is amiss. Anyway, I have been going through a lot of changes in the last two years for holidays myself and I know it's tough. The traditions that included family coming home are all gone now. All of my kids come home for nothing now. Some come for the family reunion, some come for the 4th of July, some for Thanksgiving and none for Christmas. It's very hard for me to give up on the traditions. I love having my family together.
    Wish I had your resolve on this one. Sounds like you got it figured out.
